DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #119: Simply Wonderful Butterflies

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we're having a Home Sweet Home Challenge!  

DOstamperSTARS Home Sweet Home Challenge #119 with Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup

2015 Sale-a-Bration Simply Wonderful Butterfly card created by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #119 #dostamping #stampinup

I was practically giddy when I saw this week's Thursday Challenge inspiration!   

Misted Shimmery White Cardstock created by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #119 #dostamping #stampinup

When I started on today's card, I focused on the color and was inspired to first create a color palette  using our Shimmery White card stock.  As I knew I was going to use water to create the look I was going for, I knew the Shimmery White card stock would hold up well.  Here's what I did...

Misted Shimmery White Card Stock Tips:

  • Using Sponge Daubers, sponge ink colors randomly onto Shimmery White card stock (101910)
    • Melon Mambo
    • Pumpkin Pie
    • Pacific Point
  • Wet card stock with water using a spray mister. 
  • Let dry.  Speed up the drying process with a Heat Tool
  • Cool-huh?!

From there, the card came together rather nicely.  Using the new Occasions Catalog Butterflies Thinlit Dies, cut three butterflies from the Misted Shimmery White Card Stock (I actually got 6 butterflies from one piece of 4-1/4" x 5-1/2").

The greeting is from a free Sale-a-Bration stamp set called, Simply Wonderful (6 greetings and 1 flower image).  It's heat embossed with Versamark ink and White Embossing Powder.  Then colored with Blendabilities (medium markers of Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi).

I just have to say - I love the way the card turned out.  But I especially LOVE the Blendabilities colored embossed greeting.  On the black card stock - it just pops!!  

Did you know?  All of the Blendabilities Marker Colors shown in the Annual Catalog are a FREE Sale-a-Bration choice until March 31st - with a $50 order.  Woohoo - build your Blendabilities Collection for free!

I think I nailed this week's challenge.  What do you think?
