I’ve had Butterfly Brilliance Stamp set and the co-ordinating Brilliant wings dies for a while now, but not shown them to you until today!
I love how British these stamps are….so like our butterflies. They have so much details and the dies are stunning!
Yes, they are one large stamp, but by clever positioning of your paper, there is no need to stamp or die cut all of the butterflies in one go.
I made 1 card before hand using the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder on Sahara Sand card stock, to give it a lovely faux wall background. I coloured the butterflies with blends…Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody, Blackberyy Bliss and So Saffron.
The cards I made Live, used soon to be retiring DSP (Designer Series Papers).
The first card used Forever Greenery, layered onto a Garden Green card base. The butterflies were coloured with Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight and Balmy blue blends for the outside, and a smaller butterfly was added to the inside which was coloured in Pumpkin Pie.
After the Live session had finished, I added a few Holiday Rhinestone jewels
The second card used Artisan Blooms DSP, on a layer of Pumpkin Pie. This time the butterfly was die cut from a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and again some Holiday Rhinestones to embellish.
Sentiments for these cards were all taken from the Many Messages stamp set and the coordinating Messages Dies.
The Butterflies are from the upcoming Annual Catalogue, but are available now. The Many Messages is from the January to June Mini Catalogue.
Don’t forget the brand new Annual Catalogue will be available later this month. If you are not a regular customer, but would like a catalogue, please use the ‘contact me’ tab above, and I will get one to you.
