Shabby Butterfly Cards with Adorned Theo Butterflies VIDEO TUTORIAL ~ Scraps of Elegance January Kit


Scraps of Elegance Kit subscribers are in for a real treat with the Creativity Add On this month. Melinda included two wonderful butterfly dies including this Theo Butterfly by Poppystamps (a division of Memory Box). 

In my video I show a variety of different ways to adorn this sweet butterfly. I've created two shabby chic cards featuring the butterflies along with items from the kit and add ons.

Enjoy!

I've use the gorgeous Blue Fern Studios Blush collection papers found in the Main Kit, along with Prima flowers and chipboard for both cards.


I simply inked the butterfly body and added a tiny rose from a previous kit to the center of the Adorned Theo Butterfly. The sequins are included in the Prima Chipboard pack.


I adhered the Creativity Add On Prima Pearl Glass Glitter to the larger flowers.


The main kit includes the sweetest Prima chipboard pack!!


I stenciled the vines using The Crafters Workshop Tuscan Sun Stencil by Gabrielle Pollacco found in the Main Kit.


The sweet heart doily is included in the Main Kit.


I centered this butterfly with a Buttons Galore Fancy Heart button found in the Main Kit. Of course, I had to paint it with gesso and then highlighted with the pigment powder "paint" I had mixed up for the butterfly wings. Don't you just adore how the microbeads pop on the butterfly wings?


The wooden hearts from the main kit are decorated with pigment powder paint, stamping, and edged with microbeads.


The larger flowers are again sprinkled with Prima Pearl Glass Glitter. Around the cluster, I adhered a mixture of silver glass glitter (from my stash) along with the Prima Blush Microbeads.


I've added the stenciled brick background with The Crafters Workshop Tuscan Sun Stencil by Gabrielle Pollacco.
