Happy Monday friends! We are so happy to be kicking off a new week of inspirations from our designers! Today, Kendra and Shan are showcasing the Australian Nature stamp set! Let’s get started with Kendra’s gorgeous card!
There are a bunch of beautiful images in this set!
I really love the pretty butterfly in the set, which is the main image I decided to work with:
I also decided to use some fun colors for this card!!
The “Happy Birthday” sentiment is part of the Vintage Frames set.
I started by first creating my white base layer with my Silhouette, using the Australian Nature I Cute File. I used both the butterfly sizes to cut out the butterflies, so you could see the patterned paper behind. I then stamped the one large butterfly and fussy cut it out, to place in one of the cut places.
I also used the fun Washi Tape set:
And lastly, a close-up of the beautiful Ulysses Swallowtail:
It is hard to tell from this picture, but I used a glitter pen to add some shimmer to the pink parts of the butterfly!
Next up is Shan with a beautiful bird card! Take it away, Shan!
“Hello crafty friends. Shan here to share with you a card I created for my grandfather using the beautiful forest kingfisher stamp from the Australian Nature Stamp set.
To create this card I started with a 4.25″ x 5″ white card base and layered my papers following a sketch. I embossed the forest kingfisher with black embossing powder on white card stock and water colored him in with a couple of inks that coordinated with the papers I had picked out. I used an oval die to cut around him and adhered him to my paper. To finish off the card, I added flat back pearls to the corners and a beautiful flower I had gifted to me from a friend.
That is all for me today. I hope you all have a wonderful week.
