ID: PeelOffs - BFly Bead Oval
5"w x 7"h

Created May 8, 2007

I started with a value pack cardstock dark purple color from the "Purple Passion" set. I used the 1" terrific Tape  and slightly overlapped them on a piece of release paper. Used a Coluzzle Narrow Circle template to cut out the oval, and carefully stuck it to my card. Removed the backing and sprinkled with silver and clear pastel holeless beads, then sprinkled with gold glitter. Rubber stamped the quote (Quietfire Design "If nothing ever changed"), with Brilliance Dew Drops "Moonlight White"  and detail white embossing powder. Attached one of the gold Peel Offs butterflies  onto a piece of pale yellow vellum. Colored the spaces with Sakura glaze gel pens (yellow, pink & white). Cut around the outline, then curled the wings over my finger to get them to stand out, then only glued the body portion to the card with Golden's soft gel medium. Added the paper flowers. Took another gold Peel Offs butterfly  to sit on the swash of the quote. Used the straight gold lines from the Magenta Peel Offs border set  to frame the card.

Tip: The Peel Offs "Magic Tape" is indispensable for picking up negative portions of the images. It's also re-usable. 


BUT... in a pinch I tried regular Scotch Brand "Removable Magic Tape" & regular "Magic tape" layering one piece slightly on top of another until I had a large enough piece to cover the image I wanted to pick up. I cut the image away from the main sheet, put my tape on top of it and pressed down. It doesn't really stick to the tape. It's only as you're removing the backing and lifting the corners of the image with an x-acto blade that it starts to stick. It takes a bit of dexterity and patience. When you've lifted the whole image, transfer it to your card. Careful it really sticks. Both tapes have their limitations, the removable tape doesn't hold the pieces as firmly, but won't stick to your substrate, whereas the regular tape holds the little pieces firmly  but may stick to your substrate too much. You choose...

Note: if you're not able to lift all the small pieces at one time with the Peel Offs Magic Tape, don't sweat it, just pick up what you can, place it where you want and go back and pick up the rest.


The inside of the card; I used the Peel Offs "Magic Tape" to pic up the negative portions of the gold butterflies. Positioned and then stuck them to my card. Outline the image with a gold gel pen. Rubber stamped the "H" & "B" (Quietfire Design "Caps" alphabet set) with Brilliance Dew Drops "Pearlescent Gold" and detail Gold embossing powder. Wrote the rest of the letters for "Happy Birthday" with a gold gel pen.
