Today's post features the new Butterfly Basics photopolymer stamp set and new Butterflies Thinlits Dies from the new Occasions Catalogue. The stamp set actually also comes in wood-mount and clear-mount, and you could also get the stamps and dies as a bundle and save 15%!
Now I sometimes get overwhelmed with the choices in a stamp set (there are 11 stamps in this set!) but thankfully, SU!'s catalogues are filled with samples and ideas, so I basically CASEd (Copy and Share Everything) the sample that is on page 26 of the Occasions Catalogue. I do have a hard time copying everything exactly, lol, so my changes included using a button, a different sentiment and the butterflies are die cut/punched from an old scrap piece of retired DSP.
Since the card was already designed, I would make two cards at the same time (because one A4 sheet of card stock makes two standard size cards). This means I'd play around with placements and/or colours and/or embellishments. Can you spot the variations in the card below?
Then this "putting your own spin on things" must rub off because most (if not all) of my class attendees follow suit. Look at Jill's version - isn't it stunning?
Looksie here, it's so cool the variety of colours people choose for their butterflies.
Email me firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to make these cards - this is a good card to make at a workshop party so why not have some friends over for a catch up while being creative together. I will bring all the supplies and do the coaching. Hey you never know, you may be instrumental in helping someone discover a new passion :-)
