Butterfly Brilliance Peek-a-boo Slider
Are you ready for the weekend? I sure am! As far as I know, I’m totally free, so I plan to spend the weekend preparing for March Card Classes and my Card Buffet at the end of the month. I’m so excited to be able to offer another buffet. Everyone will pay a flat fee to make 10 cards. They can make 10 different cards, 10 of the same, or a mix. It will be totally “first come, first served,” but we’ll have about 15 different designs. And if anyone wants to make more than 10 cards, they can for a “per card’ fee. You can see my event schedule here. If you live at a distance and would like information for a zoom event, let me know!
Today is a BS&J Challenge Friday, and I’m so excited about this one. The challenge uses one of my favorite mediums – our Stampin’ Up!(r) Stampin’ Blends. I made a “Peek-a-boo Slider Card.” There are several videos out there, but I used Dawn Griffith’s. It was the easiest to follow and she didn’t “dither around.” If you know me, you know I would rather follow printed directions, so I appreciated Dawn getting right to the heart of things. Keep reading for the link to her video.
This is the front of my card. I used a Bermuda Bay card base, with the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set. This is a “pre-release” bundle from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. You can order the stamps, the Brilliant Wings dies, or bundle the stamps and dies for a 10% savings. The DSP is an exclusive product and will only be available during the promotion (March 2-May 3, 2021) or while supplies last. This paper is gorgeous and you do not want to miss out, so order early!
After I stamped and die-cut the butterfly, I colored it with Daffodil Delight, Magenta Madness, and Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends. Look back several posts and you’ll see that the Magenta Madness/Bermuda Bay combination is my current favorite!
Here’s the inside of the card. Notice that when it opens, a new message slides into the “sentiment circle.”
I used the Many Mates Stamp Set for my sentiments. I love this set, because you can have a sentiment for the front, and a coordinating sentiment for the inside! I used Magenta Madness and Bermuda Bay Classic Ink for the sentiments.
I added a few more of the die-cut butterflies, colored with the same colors of Stampin’ Blends, and added a different pattern of the DSP on the inside.
Here’s a video of the “slider” part of the card. I know it’s sideways; just tilt your head. Videos keep evolving and just when I get everything figured out, it changes again.
And here’s the video of Dawn’s tutorial. It’s really easy to create this fun fold slider card. Give it a try and let me know how it goes!
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
