Butterflies fly free

I love our new coordinating stamp and die sets, they are so fun to use. I usually break out the die set first and get to cutting lots and lots of shapes. Then I will prestamp all of them with Memento Black ink, in preparation for whatever idea might land in my brain. This set is called, Dreamin' Big - Cardmaking.
This butterfly card is actually the second go at this design. The first set of both vertical and horizontal, I used Raspberry cardstock in the background. This set saw Crystal Blue for the background.

I stamped the butterflies with the following inks: Blossom; Crystal Blue; Lemon; Tangerine; Willow; and Thistle. I felt adding the Black Journaling pen outline made them pop much more, than without. I stamped the sentiment with Black ink. I also coloured each of their wings with our Clear Shimmer Pen.

All supplies are Close To My Heart, unless noted.

  1. Love BOTH of these butterfly cards Nancy - they are delightful!

  2. Love both of these designs & will have to give them a go. TFS

  3. I'm loving what you did with the black outline on those butterflies. Can't wait to give it a try. I was planning on using these in my next class and would love to lift your idea (with credit of course). Thanks for the inspiration, as always Nancy. :)


I love reading your comments, Thank You!
