Silk Paper Stamping

This is a project for the Starlight Stampers Club meeting tomorrow.  Our "homework" was to make something with a piece of "Silk Paper" from China.  This paper is like tissue paper but is of a heavier weight and an off white-natural color.  I chose to stamp on the paper by first, carefully, gluing it to SU Very Vanilla Card Stock and used a brayer to mesh the two papers together.

Stampin' Up small Watercolor Wonder Butterfly was stamped onto Silk Paper with Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry inks, then die cut.  Box was cut from Melon Mambo card stock with SU Baker's Box Thinlits die.

Taking a cue from fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Patty Bennet, I die cut my own butterfly stamp from "fun foam" with the small Butterfly Thinlits die and stamped on the Silk Paper.  The large butterfly was also stamped onto the card stock mounted Silk Paper and die cut.  Stickles added to the body and wings.

I am not much of a pastels person, so I duplicated the card in darker colors and die cut the top of the butterfly separate from the base and glued the bodies together.  Just a little too busy for me, so in this case I do like the pastel card better.  "Spread the love" is from SU Sprinkles of Life stamp set.

This this last card I stamped and die cut leaves to look like trees and sponged a background onto Whisper White card stock.  Butterfly was stamped and then punched out.  Hello is from "All Shook Up" Paper Pumpkin Kit.
