Beautiful Swallowtail Butterfly Birthday

butterfly 1

The Swallowtail Stamp has been displayed so many different ways.   I wanted to try it  using some different accessories by adding color and glitz!  This stamp was a perfect Investment for $13.95, I think it suits for any occasion, happy or sad.

I used Raspberry Ripple (126842), Gumball Green(126840) and Pool Party (122924) cardstock for the colors and layered them on top of Pool Party as my base card.  I used Versa Mark(102283) and Pool Party embossing powder(129398), once set I brushed illuminate glimmer watermark ink (126857) over it once the embossing was heated and set. It made the embossing pop and glow.  I used the Stampin’ write markers in Raspberry Ripple and Gumball Green(126856) to ink the “make a wish” stamp.  I stamped the image on about an inch and 1/8 strip then left the tab out and fed it through the New Artisan Label punch (130920) to punch one end of the label then the other.  I did not measure but used a scrap strip of Pool Party to be adhere behind the sentiment to make it pop with dimensionals.


Stamps:  Swallowtail (c 129216 w 131943) ,  Make a Wish (c 129222, w 131928)
