Vintage Butterfly Brilliance

Vintage Butterfly Brilliance

Welcome! I’m so excited to share my Vintage Butterfly Brilliance card. It is my first, but definately not my last, card featuring the Butterfly Brilliance bundle from Stampin’ Up!. This card was created for our WOW Team Card Swap. Wait until you see all the other fabulous cards my team created.

Butterflies bring a message of positivity and hope. Sometimes seen as a good omen, it can also be a message from your guardian angel. When a butterfly visits you, it can also be seen as a symbol for some new beginnings in your life. What do butterflies mean to you?

Vintage Butterfly Brillance, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Don’t you just love it when Stampin’ Up! offers an early release. The Butterfly Brilliance bundle will be in the upcoming 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Because it’s an early release, you can begin ordering March 2, 2021.  However, the gorgeous Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper and the Natural Touch Specialty Paper are offered on a “while supplies last” only basis.  Those two will not be in the Annual Catalog.

What do you do if you want all the butterflies? That’s easy, use the large die in he Brilliant Wings die set and cut out an entire sheet of butterflies in various sizes. Not only that, the die set includes six detailed dies to coordinate with the solid images.

Vintage Butterfly Brillance,Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

My vintage Butterfly Brilliance card is filled with lots of elements and techniques. I love including lots of interest in my designs. This one is no exception. First, I knew I wanted to use the Lacy Petals dies to compliment the Brilliant Wings dies. I think it’s a little marriage made in heaven.

Lacy Petals Flowers, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

To give the flowers a little more of a vintage feel, I’ve added some touches of the Gilded Leafing. It’s an easy technique that packs a big WOW factor.

Vintage Butterfly Brillance,Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

By adding two floral clusters to the card, it balances out the large butterfly in the center. 

Vintage Butterfly Brillance,Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

It’s hard to capture the sparkle in the vellum detailed butterfly, but I did apply wink of Stella. In person it is very dramatic. The Butterfly Brilliance stamp set doesn’t have any sentiments. But that’s okay, it gives you the opportunity to pick from any of your other sets to choose that perfect sentiment.

Vintage Butterfly Brillance,Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Technique

Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Technique

Welcome! WOW, another technique. I’m calling it the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Technique. I chose Bermuda Bay and Granny Apple Green to create an ocean inspired background.

Stampin' Blends Alcohol Technique, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Can you guess what you start with? I’ll give you a hint. It’s a nonporous paper that has a translucent look. Did you guess vellum? If so, you’re right.

Stampin' Blends Alcohol Technique, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

To create the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Technique you begin by scribbling color onto the surface of your vellum. Then brush on rubbing alcohol. Be sure to use alcohol as close to 100% as possible. The lower concentrations don’t work. Trust me, I tried. Once your vellum is dry, adhere it to a piece of Basic White card stock. Then emboss it with the fabulous Seashells 3D Embossing Folder.

Stampin' Blends Alcohol Technique, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Can you imagine all the different color combinations? My head sure is spinning. 

Stampin' Blends Alcohol Technique, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Each one will be a little different, but I love that. It all depends how much of each color you scribble on the vellum.

Stampin' Blends Alcohol Technique, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

I didn’t want to take away from the beautiful background, so I kept the focal image on the simpler side.

Stampin' Blends Alcohol Technique, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

But, I must admit, I did hit that pretty seashell with some of my Frost White Shimmer Paint. By adding a bit of the cording from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack, it tied everything together.

Stampin' Blends Alcohol Technique, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

And I couldn’t bring myself to discard any of the vellum, so I added two small strips to the inside of the card. Watch how you can create this dramatic background.

Here’s how the magic happens.

  • Card Base – Thick Basic White CS – 4 1/4″ x 11″, score @ 5 1/2″
  • Mats – Bermuda Bay CS – one @ 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ and one @ 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Mats – Basic White CS – one @ 3 3/4″ x 5″ and one @ 4″ x 5 1/4″

Pearlized Paper Technique & More

Did I get your attention yet? I love techniques that pack the WOW factor with minimal effort and supplies. This one does just that.

Pearlized Paper Technique, Seashells, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

The Soft Sea Foam card stock now has a pearlized shimmer finish. It’s easy, grab a piece, sponge the Frost White Shimmer Paint on the surface. That’s it! Then, you’ll want to texturize it with the new Seashells 3D Embossing Folder. Why? Because it’s just too beautiful and it has a die to match!

Pearlized Paper Technique, Seashells, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

I wanted to step it up a notch, of course. Because I used our fabulous new Blending Brushes, I was able to enhance the shells with Blushing Bride ink. Beautiful, right?

Pearlized Paper Technique, Seashells, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

My sentiment is stamped in Blushing Bride and cut with the die from the Stitched So Sweetly die set. And that pretty sand dollar, was stamped in Sahara Sand on a piece of the Pearlescent Specialty Paper in the suite.

Pearlized Paper Technique, Seashells, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

I’ve even added some of the Frost White Shimmer Paint to the small seashells and grassy images. That little pot of  goodness is going to land on lots of upcoming projects. 

Pearlized Paper Technique, Seashells, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

WOW Team Card Swap, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Look at those stinkin’ cute Darling Donkeys. By the way, it’s a FREE set you can earn during Sale-a-Bratoin. Not only that, Darlene used the Oh So Ombre DSP, another FREE offering. I’m loving all the layers and her fantastic coloring using Stampin’ Blends. It’s Nancy Sanders turn next.

WOW Team Card Swap, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

You can’t go wrong with the fabulous new True Love Designer Series Paper. It’s a black and white classic. Nancy really showed off that gorgeous paper with her fancy fold. And how about her coloring. She isolated an image from the paper. Because fussy cutting is a breeze, she did just that. Then she colored right on the DSP! Nancy used the Forever & Always Bundle, a must-have. Denise Walker is our next designer.

WOW Team Card Swap, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Heal Your Heart Sympathy Cards

Heal Your Heart Sympathy Cards

It’s part of life. We all need sympathy cards. They send words of encouragement, love and support. To create them on the spur of the moment can be a tough task. I find it better to chose a set and some beautiful paper and create a few to have in my card stash. 

Sympathy Cards with Heal Your Heart, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

The beautiful font in the Heal Your Heart set coordinates beautifully with the Fine Art Floral DSP. By changing up my designer papers, I was able to achieve one with a little more neutral design and one a bit more feminine. 

Sympathy Cards with Heal Your Heart, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Can you see all the “brush strokes” in the DSP. It looks like an artist’s canvas. I think it’s so calming and tranquil.

Sympathy Cards with Heal Your Heart, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

My color palette is Basic White, Pool Party, Pretty Peacock and Terracotta Tile. I just pulled some colors from the gorgeous DSP.

Sympathy Cards with Heal Your Heart, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Here’s how the magic happens:

  • Card Base – Basic White CS – 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored @ 5 1/2″
  • Mats – Pool Party CS – two @ 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • DSP Mat – Fine Art Floral DPS – 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″

Ready for card #2. This time I’m changing up the colors, adding a few more layers and lots of dry embossing.

Sympathy Cards with Heal Your Heart, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

I’ve said it before, but it’s worth saying again. Embossing folders are underrated.  They add so much texture and interest to your designs. In this sympathy card, I’ve used three different folders to do just that.

Sympathy Cards with Heal Your Heart, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Take a quick look at the flowers. To achieve all that texture, I punched the images with the Small Bloom Punch, then ran the images through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, with the Tasteful Textile embossing folder.  

Sympathy Cards with Heal Your Heart, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

The sweet little flower centers are from the die included in the Hydrangea die set. It embosses and cuts the images at the same time.
