Rainbows, Butterflies, & Sequins….Oh My!!

Rainbow Butterflies, www.LaurasStampPad.com

You all know how I love bright colors and butterflies!!! This card is all of that and a little bling!!! I got the inspiration for this card from the Home Decor Frame I created a long time ago! For this card, I started with a Daffodil Delight card base and then took a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. I used the butterflies from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Stamp Set which are amazing for a background since they are in various sizes. Starting in the top corner and working your way down, I used the following colors: Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Cucumber Crush, Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay, and Elegant Eggplant. I inked up the butterflies and stamped them down and then stamped 1-2 more times without going back to the ink. That is how I got those various shades of color and I like how it adds depth to the card. I love it. So fun and colorful!! The greeting is from the Endless Birthday Wishes Stamp Set and stamped in Cucumber Crush!  I finished the card off with a little bling of Gold Sequins! TIP: I was always using Multi-Purpose Glue (green lid glue) for adding sequins but then too much would come out and it would squish out the middle of the sequin and sometimes (okay lots of times) make a mess. I started using the 2-Way Glue Pen and it works amazingly!!! Love it!!!

Do you love bright colorful things like me?? Let me know in the comments below!!

Happy Stampin’
