  • Stamp set includes 6 images & 3 sentiments
  • Set measures approximately 4" x 6"
  • The largest butterfly measures approximately 2 1/2" x 1 3/4"
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Priced at $15

  • I made 2 cards using this set. Both are pretty easy, so here are the details.

    First card. I started spraying a piece of White cardstock with yellow and red sprays (Studio Calico), then stamped the butterflies in Jet Black Archival ink and cut them out. I mounted 2 butterflies here to give it more dimension. Then I die-cut a decorative frame shape, stamped the largest butterfly in Jet Black Archival Ink and added the monted one. Stamped the sentiment on a piece of Kraft Cardstock, added a white doily and the decorative frame. After that I paper pierced the corners and added a little rhinestone to butterfly.



    For this card, first I stamped the butterflies on a piece of Kraft Cardstock and instead of ink I used "Gesso", I saw this technique on Kim's blog and decided to give it a try, since I didn't have Distress Paints, I used Distress Inks, and added spray mists as well. I die-cut a lace border in white and painted it with Moss 3D paint. Added twine and a button. Finally added this panel on an Ivory card base.


    Check out some of the fabulous samples made by our talented DT in the thumbnails below.
