Fable Friends Card Idea for Paper Craft Crew Challenge #PCC327

Fable Friends Stampin' Up! Card Idea. Order Cardmaking Products  from Mitosu Crafts Online Shop

Hi and welcome to Mitosu Crafts, thanks for stopping by today. It's Jay here with my Design Team inspiration card for Paper Craft Crew card sketch challenge #PCC327

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch Challenge Inspiration #PCC327

We received new products recently from the 2019 Spring/Summer Catalogue so I decided to create something with the Fable Friends Cling Stamp Set for the card sketch above

The Fable Friends Stamp Set includes 9 Cling Mount designs, 4 of which are of cute animals great for Easter and Baby Cards. For my project today I decided to leave the front blank so it can be personalised in the future if needed

There are 7 elements needed to follow the card sketch and I paired Fable Friends with Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies

I adhered Very Vanilla mat on the cardbase then added the Balmy Blue oval slightly towards the left of the card

A strip of Soft Sea Foam cardstock was die cut with the lattice leaves design for the vertical banner on the sketch. Placing a piece of Grapefruit Grove Organdy Ribbon (FREE SAB Item) after

I wanted these layers to show so I punched a piece of Vellum Paper with the 2" Circle. Before sticking it down, I embossed the circle with the Subtle DTIEF

The cute squirrel was stamped in Memento and coloured with Stampin' Blends; Mango Melody Combo, Dark Pumpkin Pie, Light Granny Apple Green, Smoky Slate Combo and Basic Black Combo. The Color Lifter was very helpful in defining the squirrel's face and is a must have for anyone who colours with alcohol markers

TIP: To help fussy cut an image, draw around it with a light marker (I used Balmy Blue for this project) then use the outline created as a guide

On top of the Stampin' Blends, I used the White Stampin' Chalk Marker to add more highlights on the squirrel's tail. I also added more interest with the dots on the punched Vellum Paper

To finish the sketch, I added the Basic Pearls which were coloured with Dark Mango Melody Blends

Stamp Review Crew ~ Butterfly Gala

Butterfly Gala Stamp Set & Butterfly Duet Punch Bundle Stampin' Up! Card Ideas. Order Cardmaking Products from Mitosu Crafts Online Shop

Hi and welcome to Mitosu Crafts UK, thanks for stopping by today. It's Jay here with the Stamp Review Crew blog hop. The Stamp Review Crew are a group of independent demonstrators sharing inspirations using the same stamp set by Stampin' Up! For this hop we are showcasing the beautiful Butterfly Gala photopolymer stamp set

Make the most of your stamps with Stamp Review Crew and continue along the hop by clicking the 'Next Blog' button at the end of this post. If you are following the hop already, you have arrived here from With A Bow On Top by the talented Lou Kitzelman

The Butterfly Gala Stamp Set comes with 18 stamps and uses 2 Step Stamping technique to create the final image you want. It also co-ordinates with the Butterfly Duet Punch from the 2019 Spring/Summer Occasions Catalogue so both can be ordered together as a BUNDLE

Now onto my projects which uses the bundle with other products...

The card base is actually embossed with the Subtle DTIEF, it's so subtle you can't see it in the photos! Honestly though, it is gorgeous in person. I stamped the leafy butterflies on another strip of card with Memento ink then adhered on the bottom of the cardbase. Adding a thin strip of Old Olive card to hide the edge

The sentiment was stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock, punched using the Pretty Label design then adhered with Dimensionals

The trio of butterflies were stamped in Memento ink, coloured with Daffodil Delight Combo Blends and Dark Pumpkin Pie Blends. These were then cut using Butterfly Duet punch then shaped with Paper Snips. I only added glue to the back of the body so the wings can be folded upwards

For my 2nd card I wanted to get a bit more inky. I didn't realise how much I've missed sponging until after doing a facebook live a couple of weeks ago

Butterfly Gala Stamp Set & Butterfly Duet Punch Bundle Stampin' Up! Card Ideas. Order Cardmaking Products from Mitosu Crafts Online Shop

I used a dauber to apply Soft Sea Foam on the new Crackle Background and stamped on Whisper White cardstock. This Dauber to Stamp technique creates a lighter shade and you can select which areas you want to use

I sponged Gorgeous Grape and Granny Apple Green, sprinkled water then dried with paper towels and repeated the process. The first splatter attracted more ink as it was still slightly wet and added darker splatter effects

I added a strip of Grapefruit Grove Foil (FREE Sale-A-Bration item) embossed in Subtle DTIEF, Whisper White 5/8" Flax Ribbon and the sentiment on Dimensionals

I used the Dauber to Stamp technique again to apply Gorgeous Grape ink on the solid top butterfly stamp. I tend to punch the butterflies first before stamping the body so you can gauge where to stamp it. Finished off this card by adding the Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins

For my final card, I created a rainbow with the smaller punched butterflies. I used Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Call Me Clover, Pacific Point, Gorgeous Grape and Melon Mambo

This card is actually a bit more technical as I wanted the rainbow butterflies spaced evenly. I embossed the layer in Subtle DTIEF before marking with pencil where I was going to place the butterflies in different colour cardstock

I used Smoky Slate ink to stamp the small butterfly wings, punch, stamp the body in the same colour, shape and then adhere on top of the coloured cardstock. I stamped the sentiment first then cut by hand, you can either score the card first or use pencil for guidance

So what Stampin' Up! colours would you use to make a rainbow? And which one of the 3 projects do you prefer?
