Kind Butterly

Good Morning, Stampers!

There is so much to love about the new Watercolor Wings stamps set! It's 3-step stamping couldn't be easier and the color combinations are endless and make absolutely gorgeous butterflies. One of the great features of photopolymer stamp sets is that it allows you to shape the pieces to create one-of-a-kind designs. Here, I shaped the sentiment around the wing. A little unexpected!

Swallowtail Ensemble

Good Morning, Stampers!

Today's project is a gift set I created in memory of a special friend who passed away this past week. She loved butterflies and the color pink, so I embossed the butterflies in gold and daubed Blushing Bride ink to highlight. The sentiment is a line from a song that was special to her. A great way to really personalize a gift for someone special.




The card couldn't have been any easier. A little embossing, a die cut butterfly in gold foil paper and a simple sentiment stamped in Early Espresso ink and it's complete.

Get Well Soup

Good Morning, Stampers!

A little paper piecing is all that is needed to give the bowl a little color and style! A great "pick-me-up" to brighten any one who is under the weather! Simply stamp the image onto the patterned paper and cut. Adhere the paper to the stamped image on your project - that's it! Try it on all sorts of images!
