The emboss resist technique provides awesome results. Here’s an outline of how this card comes together.

  • Place the Butterfly Brilliance stamp onto the Stampartus.
  • Ink the stamp with Versamark ink.
  • Stamp the image onto Basic White card stock.
  • Pour White Embossing Powder on the card. Shake off the excess.
  • Heat the image with the Heat Tool.
  • Choose an ink color. Use the Blending Brushes to apply ink to the image. With a paper towel, gently rub off excess ink. (I used the new In Color of Fresh Freesia.)
  • The images should “pop” on the paper leaving you with white butterflies.
  • Add any sentiment and embellishments you choose. For this, I embossed the Happy Mother’s Day sentiment from the Dressed to Impress stamp set in white on Basic Black card stock.

This card works for a variety of occasions. I can see it as a sympathy card, a birthday card, thinking of you, and more.

Stampin’ Friends: For Dog Moms

Welcome to the April Stampin’ Friends Blog Hop where I’m featuring a card for dog moms.

Thanks for joining us on this hop. Be sure to visit all of the blogs and leave a comment. Follow along using the links at the bottom of this post. It’s a great lineup of cards and projects.

We’re celebrating moms for Mother’s Day. I know there are a lot of dog moms out there, so I decided to have a little fun with Stampin’ Up! products. I’ve created a card for moms of our furry friends!

For Dog Moms Card

Stampin' Friends For Dog Moms

I used a variety of products to create this card. Look for them in Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog and the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog:

  • Dog Builder Punch (#148543 – $18)
  • Best Dressed 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (#151319 – $11.50)
  • Dressed to Impress stamp set (#151666 – $18)
  • Stitched Shapes Dies (#145372 – $30)
  • Layering Ovals Dies (#141706 – $35)
  • Little flowers from the Detailed Deer Framelits (#147915 – $34)

I love Stampin’ Up!’s color coordination. The Best Dressed Designer Series Paper uses a host of complementary colors, and I chose Petal Pink and Mint Macaron for a more feminine look.

And, we need a treat bag to accompany the card.

Treat Bag

I followed the same color scheme and used the same basic products as the card to create a fun, little bag filled with dog treats. The 3 x 9 Printed Gusseted Cellophane Bags (25 bags for $7 – #151312) provide a perfect receptacle for treats like this and the Scallop Tag Topper Punch makes it quick and easy to create a tag.
