VIDEO – Embossing with Butterfly Beauty Thinlits

This is the third in a series of videos showing you how to emboss with dies. In today’s video, we will be using the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits.

Here is the finished card that I have made using the embossing created in the video.

Tips:

  • Blackberry Butterflies:
    • Use the more detailed of the five-in-one butterfly dies to die cut a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock. Keep the negative image for sponging the art panel.
    • Keep the die cut inside the die and emboss using the following sandwich:
      • Big Shot Platform with Tab 2 open (or with the new platform – no adapters)
      • Acrylic Plate
      • Die with cutting side up
      • Cardstock (in the die)
      • Grey Thick Silicone Mat
      • White Impressions Pad
    • Still keeping the die cut inside the die, sponge through the holes in the die with a Sponge Dauber and Whisper White Craft ink. Remove the die cut and clean the die.
    • Separate the butterflies along the edges so there are five separate butterflies.
  • Leaf Flourishes:
    • Die cut one or two using Old Olive cardstock.
    • Keep in the die and emboss as with the blackberry butterflies.
    • Still keeping the die cut inside the die, sponge through the holes in the die with a Sponge Dauber and Old Olive ink. Remove the die cut and clean the die.
  • Sponged Butterflies for the Art Panel:
    • Take the less detailed of the five-in one butterfly dies to create an embossed image on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Use the following sandwich:
      • Big Shot Platform with Tab 2 open (or with the new platform – no adapters)
      • Acrylic Plate
      • Die with cutting side up
      • Cardstock (use two pieces at once and you will get two embossed panels to use) By using two pieces at once, the resultant embossed images will not be too deep or cut into the white cardstock.
      • Blue Thin Silicone Mat
      • White Impressions Pad
    • Place the Blackberry Bliss negative die cut over the embossed butterflies and colour them with Smoky Slate ink and Sponge Daubers.
  • Art Panel:
    • Stamp one each of the small butterflies in ink to match the sponged embossed butterflies.
    • Use the ‘splotch’ image with Old Olive ink and stamp randomly over the art panel – first, second and third generation stamping.
    • Make up some Isocol and Champagne Mist in a spritzer and spritz the art panel and the blackberry butterflies.
    • Adhere one or three of the Blackberry Bliss butterflies over the matching embossed butterflies.
    • Adhere one or two of the leaf flourishes.
    • Attach panel to the front of the card base.
  • Sentiment:
    • Stamp in Blackberry Bliss ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut to size.
    • Use a sponge Dauber and Blackberry Bliss ink around the edges.
    • Attach to art panel using Dimensionals.
  • Inside of card: stamp some of the small butterflies and the ‘splotch’ in the lower right hand corner of a Whisper White piece and attach it to the inside of the card.
  • Envelope: stamp in the front lower left hand corner to match the inside of the card.
  • Supplies:
    • Stamps – Beauty Abounds
    • Card Stock – Blackberry Bliss, Whisper White, Old Olive
    • Misc. – Butterfly Beauty Thinlits, Embossing Mats, Sponge Daubers, champagne Mist Shimmer Paint, Isocol, Spritzer, Dimensionals
