Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wings Soft Pretty Petals

Hey Stampin' Friends!!

Today I have the last two cards from my Watercolor Wings online stamp class. I just love how all four of these cards turned out. Both of the cards from today use DSP from the Pretty Petals Paper Stack. I {heart} this paper!! If you do not have it yet in your craft stash yet, you need to get it ASAP!! It is so pretty and versatile. 

Watercolor Wings Just For You #3:



Stamps: Watercolor Wings
Ink: Soft Sky, Lost Lagoon, Basic Black
Paper: Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Pretty Petals DSP
Accessories: Bold Butterfly Framelits, Butterflies Thinlits, Honeycomb EF, Decorative Label Punch, Oval Punch, Pearl Jewels, Black Lace (retired)

Kit Includes:

1 - Very Vanilla card base
1 - Very Vanilla embossed card front
1 - Very Vanilla sheet for stamping
1 - Pretty Petals DSP piece
1 - Basic Black piece
1 - Basic Black butterfly cutout
1 - Basic Black label punch
1 - Very Vanilla oval punch
1 - strand of pearls
2 - medium pearls
1 - length of black lace

Instructions:
Stamp your butterfly wings first.
Start with the stamp that has the largest image on it. Stamp with Soft Sky ink.
Next, stamp the "inside" of the butterfly with Lost Lagoon ink (you could use Marina Mist).
Last, stamp the "outer edges" of the butterfly using Basic Black.
DO NOT stamp the butterflies body yet.
It should look like this...

Notice my "mess up" in the center? It's okay because it is going to get covered up when I layer the cutout butterfly on top.
Now cut out your butterfly using the Framelits.
Stamp the butterfly body using Basic Black.
It is easier to align the body AFTER the wings have been cut out.
Stamp your sentiment onto the Very Vanilla oval using Basic Black ink.
Adhere your Honeycomb embossed card front onto your Very Vanilla card base. I use Liquid Glue.
Layer your Basic Black piece and your Pretty Petals DSP on top of the card front at an angle.
Attach your sentiment onto your Basic Black Label punch. Add the two medium pearls.
Attach the sentiment to the bottom right corner of the card front using Dimensionals.
Put your strand of pearls onto the Basic Black butterfly cutout. Attach cutout butterfly to top of stamped butterfly using Dimensionals.
Add layered butterfly to card front using Dimensionals.
Tie black lace ribbon around card.
DONE!!!

And our 4th and final card...

I love how even though these two cards use essentially the same products, they look so different from one another. One has a more soft, vintage feel while the other one is more colorful and playful.
