Parcel Post & Special Delivery note cards

Hello, my crafty friends! Hope you had a great weekend! A new challenge launched over at UnstampaBelles last Monday and today is my showcase day on the blog! I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for Challenge #91 – Stunning Stencil Play! The twist this month is ‘It Pays to Spray.’ The twist is not mandatory to play but we’d love to see your creativity and it will put you in the running for DT Favorite! And there’s a prize in the mix… a $15 au Gift Voucher… so let’s see what you got!


I grabbed the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Doily stencil, a few Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and two pieces of Canson Cold Press watercolor paper. I sprayed Dragonfly and Moss GM onto one side of the stencil to create the first background, cleaned it off and flipped it over, and sprayed Dragonfly and Iridescent Silver GM onto the other side to create the second background. I layered the panels on coordinating cardstock and foam, and adhered them to the card bases.

I added a butterfly with game spinner body to each card along with a sentiment and wood gear to complete the card fronts. I layered the inside panels on matching cardstock, and since they are note cards I left the inside of each one blank to write a custom message.

And one more look from an angle to see the dimension of the butterflies. So pretty! I’m tickled with how these turned out!


Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Canson Cold Press watercolor paper, Stampin’ Up thick and regular Very Vanilla cardstock, Stampin’ Up Island Indigo and Cucumber Crush cardstock
Ink: Tattered Angels Dragonfly, Iridescent Silver and Moss Glimmer Mist
Accessories:  Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Doily stencil, Darice Foamies foam, Tim Holtz Idea-ology Snippets Ephemera Pack and  Botanical Layers, Tim Holtz Idea-ology Game Spinners, Hobby Lobby Woodpile Gears

I hope you’ve enjoyed this project and will link up with us this month! You’ll see new inspiration each week! We can’t wait to see what you create without the use of stamps! Thanks so much for stopping by today – we’ll see you next time! ;)

Scrappy hugs,

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. These are beautiful! I love the sprayed backgrounds, they are such fun to make, I always end up with a big pile of sheets when I get started! I love your butterflies too. x
