                           With a Twist

Cutting it Oddly


I will be using Altenew Painted Butterflies stamp and die sets to create this card, and I wanted to cut the card oddly for this lesson.

I started by cutting the right side of my panel with the My Favorite Things Stitched Scallop Basic Edge die. Then I ink blended it with Faded Jeans Distress ink. Since I had run this through my big shot to cut the edge, it did not blend nicely. So, I blended a panel and then cut the edge afterwards. I then spritzed the panel with water, blotted the excess off. Then used some diluted Faded Jeans distress ink and splattered that over the panel. I then used some diluted white acrylic paint to add some splatters of white to the panel. I set that aside to dry

I used the Painted Butterflies stamp to stamp the butterfly onto another piece of Neenah Solar White card stock in Jet Black ink. Then I used the layers with Citrus Burst and Maple Yellow inks to color the butterfly. I used the coordinating die to cut it out. Since you would see the edge of  the butterfly from the back, I used a Faber Castell black Artist Pitt Pen to draw the butterfly on the back, and colored it in with a little Citrus Burst ink and a piece of a microfiber cloth.

I stamped the other two butterflies on the front of the panel with Jet Black ink.

I cut the edge of a dark pink card base to match the line of the scallop edge and adhered the panel to it. I then foam mounted the yellow butterfly to the panel and used a Wink Of Stella pen in clear to add sparkle to the butterflies.

I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set onto a strip of Neenah Solar White card stock in Jet Black ink and cut the edge on a diagonal. I rubbed some Faded Jeans distress ink along the edges and foam mounted that to the card.

Lastly, I added some dots of Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops around the panel.

Thanks for joining me here!
