Deep Red - Butterfly card + Giveaway

Hey, Crafty Friends... Do you like the rubber stamps? I know I absolutely LOVE rubber stamps!! There's just something about the rubber that give  a great impression every time! And that is why I was excited to get to work with stamps from the AWESOME Deep Red Stamps!!

Xyron has partnered up with Deep Red Stamps to showcase their amazing products!.These stamps are made in the U.S. A. and use the traditional red rubber but are made into cling stamps for easy storage. To learn more about Deep Red Stamps click HERE.

One of the first things I noticed right off the bat was that each stamp came in a sturdy resealable bag. And once I removed, I noticed that each stamp came with an image card. Not your ordinary image card but study and laminated... it may even be a plastic card. Which is an awesome added value because now you have an image sheet where you can store your stamp. How super fab is that? 

Now, wouldn't love some of these stamps for yourself??! If your answer is yes then I have great news for you!! Deep Red Stamps is giving me $45 in rubber stamps to give away to one lucky reader!! WOOHOO!!

First I stamped my image onto Mixed Media paper with Momento Tuxedo Black ink. I used my Spectrum Noir markers in CR1, and CR3 to color in the corset.

Then I used LG2 and LG3 to color in the leaves. and GB1, and GB2 to color the centers of theflowers. LG2and LG3 to color the background. And GB2 and GB6 to color the butterfly.

Using my Cut'n'boss machine, I cut my image out using my largest Oval from the Spellbinders Floral Oval dies set. Then color in the rest of the oval with the same LY3 marker. At the same time I also the largest label from the Labels Twenty Five set. 
I also cut the largest rectangle from my resplendent rectangles set out of craft cardstock.

I used my AnnaGriffin Folder to emboss my label.

After ebrushing I lightly sanded over the embossed image... basically, making my own color cored cardstock. 

I also embossed a 4.75"x6.75" piece of white cardstock with my Anna Griffin Folder.

These beautiful butterflies are also from Deep Red Stamps!! I stamped them with more Tuxedo Black ink and colored them in GB2 and GB Spectrum Noir markers.

Then fussy cut them out. I bent the wings back a bit and added Glossy Accents to them and left them to dry.

While my butterflies were drying I made some homemade foam adhesive. I used my Xyron Creative Station and ran a sheet of craft foam through. then peeled the clear plastic, trimmed off the excess waxed paper bottom and flipped it over and ran it through my Creative station again.

Now that I have my own homemade foam adhesive I can cut it down to whatever size or shape I need.

I cut two leaves using my Small Ivy die from Die-Namites.

Then airbrushed it using my eBrush machine and  green, orange, and brown Sharpies. I added dimension to my leaves by rubbing the back of my die-cuts in a circular motion with a stylus.

And added adhesive to the back using my Xyron Mega Runner.

Then I added my homemade foam adhesive to the back of my label and my floral oval to add dimension.

I attached my butterflies to my card using Glossy Accents.

And added more Glossy Accents over the butterfly in my stamped image for added pop.

And here is my final card once pieced together!!
