Hello everyone!! Berina here with 2 cards using the Blessed stamp set from January release and the butterflies from the Australian Nature I stamp set.

Inspired by Stamping, Berina Febin, Blessed Stamp Set, Australian Nature stamp set, thinking of you card

Here’s how I made it:

  1. I took a white card panel and stamped it the 2 butterflies from the Australian Nature I stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, as I will be using Copic markers.Inspired by Stamping, Berina Febin, Blessed Stamp Set, Australian Nature stamp set, thinking of you card
  2. I cut the panel into 2 and colored them with Copics. I’m not an expert in Copic coloring, but I’ll share how I colored these butterflies. I started with the darkest color, which is BG49 in this case on the inside edge and the outside edge of the butterfly wings.Inspired by Stamping, Berina Febin, Blessed Stamp Set, Australian Nature stamp set, thinking of you card
  3. Then I used BG15 to blend in some of the dark color and also extend the color towards the center.
  4. Now I used BG13 to blend in and extend the color towards the center.
  5. I used BG11 to blend it all in and fill the remaining part of the wings.
  6. In the same way I colored all the butterflies.
  7. I colored the other half of the stamped panel with green using G99, YG67, YG63 and YG03.
  8. I took card panels of teal and green color and stamped the sentiment ‘So Very Blessed’ from the Blessed Stamp set. I used Hero Arts black ink for stamping. Yup! I forgot to stamp before I added the bow on the teal card.
  9. Now for making the bow, I use my fingers as the bow maker πŸ˜‰ I’m making a bow with 2 loops. So I wrapped the ribbon twice around my fingers starting from the center and ending at the center, leaving a tail at both ends.
  10. I tied a knot with the tails in the center, while still holding the loops around my finger. If I’m not successful at getting a beautiful knot, I use a brad to hold the loops, like in my other bow.
  11. I removed the bow from my fingers and fluffed up the loops.
  12. Now, I cut a strip of ribbon slightly larger than the width of my card panel and adhered the ends to the back of my card panel with tape.
  13. I fluffed up the loops of the bow and added double-sided tape to the back side of the bow, so the loops stay like that even when it’s being mailed. I also added a strip of double-sided tape on the ribbon (on the card panel) to make it look like the bow was tied exactly on the spot πŸ˜‰
  14. Then I adhered the bow on the ribbon with all the double-sided tape.
  15. Now I also adhered the butterfly panels on to the respective colored card panels.Inspired by Stamping, Berina Febin, Blessed Stamp Set, Australian Nature stamp set, thinking of you card
  16. I mounted both panels onto white card bases and added a few sequins from the Valentine’s day sequins. I added pink sequins on green and iridescent heart sequins on teal.

Here’s another look at both the cards.
