Shiny Swallowtail

Hello Friends,  I hope you all had a great Monday!  I held one of my card making classes today and had a lot of fun.  Then I had dinner and great conversation with a wonderful lady.  She has been coming to my classes for a few months now.  I am so thankful for Stampin’ Up! I have met so many people and most of them have become very good friends of mine.  I love meeting new friends!

Now, this is not one of the cards we made in class today, but one we will be making soon.  I want to share it because I love this Swallowtail Stamp and using the Embossing Resist Embossing Resist TechniqueTechnique, which is what I did here.  When I looked up swallowtails on the internet so I would know what colors to use, I couldn’t believe how many types and how many colors there are of this butterfly!  So, I figured I could use just about any color and be safe.

To make this card, I stamped the swallowtail in VersaMark Ink on Whisper White Card Stock and embossed it with White Powder.  I started sponging Daffoldil Delight Ink from the outside of the image toward the center of the butterfly.  Next, I sponged Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, and Rich Razzleberry until I got to the center.  Then I wiped the excess ink off the stamped image with tissue…It really makes the image stand out.  It is such an easy technique to use on handmade cards, scrapbook pages, and other paper crafts and it is so pretty!  I placed a piece of Rich Razzleberry Ribbon around the panel and added a bow.  After sponging the edges with more Rich Razzleberry Ink, it was adhered to a card base of Rich Razzleberry Card Stock.  Three Basic Rhinestones and the greeting were added and my card was finished.  It probably took me about 15 minutes to make the card and I love it!
