All A Flutter | My Little Shoebox

Spring is here and the big beautiful butterflies from MLS - All A Flutter line are floating all across this layout of my handsome boys "posing" in the Easter outfits that Grandmom bought.

Tattered Angels was generous enough to donate product to our DT and I was more than happy to put it to good use!

The following are step by step directions for creating the "zebra striped" butterfly in the top left corner. I started with a sheet of white cardstock. Using a craft knife, I carefully cut a butterfly from the patterned paper and then placed it where I wanted it on the background.

Next, I spritzed Suede and Olive Vine glimmer mist on the cardstock, over the butterfly to create the resist seen here.

Next, I took the negative space from the butterfly that I cut out and trimmed a rub-on so that it was slightly bigger than the negative space. I used Hambly's wood grain rub-on here.

I placed the negative space butterfly over the resisted butterfly on the cardstock and then applied the rub-on on top of that.

This is is what the finished butterfly looks like. Finally, I outlined the butterfly with a Sakura red glaze pen.

Here's a quick card that I created from the All A Flutter line. It's hard to see from this photo, but I used a clear glaze pen on all of the polka dots on the flowers. I love how these glaze pens add dimension and shine to everything you apply them to! The sentiment was handwritten with a plain fine point marker and then taken over the top with a brown glaze pen.

We are so thankful to Love My Tapes and Sakura for sponsoring our design team!!

I used the adhesive runner and glazed pens on the projects in this post.

Thanks for stopping by,
