Two Butterfly Cards

For my two cards for Darnell's Twofer Card challenge #5 displaying Butterflies, I decided to use some of my designer paper stash... to help with my colour choices....then to choose a stamp or die cut.... never realised how many of both I to have, all sizes and shapes.  I decided on a stamped image.

My  first DP is faun, cream and pinks... then I stamped my butterfly on a bright pink and cream script piece from the same pack and fussy cut it out before touching up sections of the image with Distress Oxides.  I used the off cuts to die cut some foliage and a strip for my pink stamped and embossed sentiment.
My second DP is a butterfly background on textured card in beige and cream. I decided to stamp my butterflies in brown ink and used sponged Distress Oxides to colour them and then fussy cut them out.  I used cream card stock to cut two foliage sprays and dull gold metallic paper to die cut a label on which I displayed my die cut sentiment...used the same DO inks to colour this.
Thanks for visiting and enjoy your weekend


  1. Your Twofer cards are so pretty! Love the patterned papers you used for the background, especially the delicate, collage-y look of the first one! And the lovely orange butterflies and word really pop on the neutral papers! Great designs!
    Thank you for joining us at the Twofer!

  2. Absolutely stunning coloring, Robyn, and beautiful designs! Your choice of pp and die cuts is perfect for both cards! I love how one has a distinctly spring feel and the other has the warm colors of fall! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #5! Hugs, Darnell

  3. Beautiful cards Robyn, great idea to stamp your butterfly onto matching dp and the other one is so beautifully coloured, Cathy x
