July/August 2021 New Product Blog Hop

Are you loving the Close To My Heart July/August 2021 Idea Book?  (You can view it HERE if you haven't already.)  Hop along this new product blog hop to see amazing artwork with our favorite new products!  (If you're already hopping, you've probably arrived from Alyson's blog.  From here, you'll visit Show and Tell with Michelle.)

The Butterfly Background Thin Cut makes the most beautiful card front (in my humble opinion)!  Here's a closeup of the die:

For my first card, I layered a White Daisy Butterfly Background Thin Cut panel onto a standard-size White Daisy card base.  (I love our bulk cards and envelopes!)  Hopefully you can tell in the closeup how I painted each butterfly's wings with clear shimmer brush and then added flower sequins over each flower cutout.

My second card used another White Daisy Thin Cut panel, but I layered a Ballerina Butterfly Background Thin Cut panel underneath, with a Sage card base as the background.  
You can see how I "weeded out" different portions of the layers so that the Ballerina shows as flowers and as a background for the butterfly wings.
Hopefully you can see the clear shimmer brush on the butterflies' wings!

If you love the Butterfly Background Thin Cut die as much as I do, be sure to get yours either HERE or on your CTMH Maker's website before they run out!  (Sometimes our popular Thin Cuts demand exceeds supply, so if you have a Thin Cut on your wish list, I would recommend ordering sooner rather than later.  Stamp sets are available for a year from their introduction except for stamps of the month and other special collections.)  Thanks for leaving a comment before hopping on to Show and Tell with Michelle!

  1. I was wondering where the shimmer was coming from! Love how you created that and really love the multi-color card as well! Very nice!

  2. These are so pretty - I really like the second card with the added colours. It makes it so soft and gentle :)

  3. Gorgeous cards. So elegant in White-on-White, but also beautiful when you add color.

  4. Oh Wow! both of your cards are stunning! You've inspired me to play with mine some more. The combinations are endless!

  5. Wow! Both your cards are fantastic! I am like Michelle, I need to play more with this thin cut.

  6. Beautiful cards! This thin cut is my favorite!

  7. So beautiful! I have to order that die.


Thanks for taking the time to visit and leaving me a comment!
