Stampin' Up! Delicate Dahlias & Butterfly Brilliance!

Hey there! Today I have a special card I created for my friend Linda. Linda & I have been friends for over 15 years, ever since she came to one of my early Stamp Camps and then decided to join my team of Yes Mam! Stampers. Linda passed away a couple of weeks ago from complications following a routine surgery, so it was a shock for me as well as several members of my team who knew Linda from traveling with her to Stampin' Up! functions.

I created this card to give to her family as a token of my sympathy and love for my friend with Delicate Dahlias, a Sale-a-bration freebie, Butterfly Brilliance, and Shaded Summer stamps. Linda loved every butterfly stamp set that Stampin' Up! came out with! If I didn't know what kind of butterfly a stamp was, she could always tell me!


I created these cards by first stamping on a Basic White layer with the Butterfly Brilliance image, the Stamparatus, and Versamark ink. I then heat embossed the butterflies with clear powder. After the embossing cooled (a few seconds), I stamped over them with Delicate Dahlias images using Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, Fresh Freesia, and Soft Succulent ink. After stamping, I then gently rubbed off the excess ink from the embossed images to make them "pop"!


The greeting is from Delicate Dahlias, cut with a Tasteful Label Die.


Inside I used a sentiment from Shaded Summer.


Delicate Dahlias is a Sale-a-bration set that you can only get with an order of at least $100. Shaded Summer coordinates with the Sale-a-bration Summer Shadows Dies, another freebie with a $100 order.
