Blog Hop with Sizzix and Clearsnap

I am so excited to be part of the Sizzix Fresh Vintage blog hop today. Every Tuesday and Thursday for the next 6 weeks, one of the 12 dies in the Fresh Vintage collection will be featured. 6-10 projects for every die will be posted by 75 of the most creative designers in our industry. To view the hope, click on the above link to go back and forth and see all kinds of wonderful creations.

On the Clearsnap blog today, I posted a Butterfly Frame I created. Now I'm showcasing the Butterfly Die on this pretty card.

The Butterfly and the Scalloped Circle were cut with matboard. I added a piece of vellum between the butterfly layers which was inked with Clearsnap's Soft Pastels Petal Point inks and a touch of glitter.

The top most butterfly layer was inked with Clearsnap's Mix'd Media Inx in Jasmine, Periodot, Honey as well as Frost White. I then embossed it with Clearsnap's Opalescent Clear Embossing Powder. Once I placed the pearls, I painted them with Pool Smooch Ink for a little more color.

The scalloped circle was stamped with a Hero Arts stamp and Clearsnap's Decades Bon Voyage Blue.

The background was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. Decades Venetian Lace Ink was lightly rubbed across the embossed areas.

Be sure to stop by the Clearsnap Blog to see other samples of these dies and matboard in use.
