My first card is my first ever stamping collage using a few different Inspired by Stamping stamps. I began by coloring my monarch butterfly using Tombow markers on watercolor paper. You can see this tutorial here.

I began by using our Vintage Happy Birthday and Background Basics sets. After stamping onto Vanilla Paper, I used our Crochet Trim tape for a little texture.

For my final touches, I adhered my butterfly using foam dimensions and also added a few pearls.

These butterflies are so fun to color. For this card I used pinks and greens for this beautiful butterfly. Have you ever googled butterflies? There are so many beautiful color combos to choose from!

After coloring my butterfly, again using the watercolor technique, I layered it on top of our Fancy Labels 2 stamp set and coordinating die.

These little squares were leftover scrap paper from my Vintage Floral Paper Pad. I am also using our Crochet Trim Collection and Pinks Ribbon Collection.

Now, it’s Jo’s turn with a beautiful butterfly and waterlily card! Here she is!

“Hi all, welcome to today’s blog post. Today is all about butterflies. I find butterflies are one of my favourite stampsets to play with as it you can be as versatile as you want. For today’s card I will be playing with this months New Release stampset “Butterflies”.

Inspired by Stamping, Jo Herbert, Butterflies stamp set, Water Lily stamp set, Butterfly card

Starting with a very vanilla cardstock base I heat embossed the smallest butterfly of the set repetitively along each side with clear embossing powder.  I have used 2 distress inks  to layer the brown tones on the card base with Antique Linen then Vintage Photo  starting off the  sponging with the outer edges working my way towards to the centre of the card. As for the borders the brown towns make the butterflies pop.

For the centre stamped image the Water Lily Flower has been coloured in with water colour crayons (which I had to dust off) to colour these images in.

For the sentiment I have used a die cut that I have sponged the outer edges with Vintage Photo distress inks. You can see the difference in the tones with the distress inks where for the base I first layered with Vintage photo therefore softening the brown tones and for the sentiment the brown tone is quite strong which perfect to stand out and not blend into the card background.

Next up is Kylie with 3 CAS butterfly cards! These are so amazing! Here she sharing all her details!

“I’m so excited that it is the start of Release Week today!

You will see why I am excited when I show you the new Butterflies set. They are amazing!!

I was SO excited that I made 3 cards with this set. You will see how differently you can use one single stamp.

My first card –

Inspired by Stamping, Kylie Purtell, Butterflies stamp set, CAS butterfly card

How to make this card –

1. Swipe distress ink pads across your craft sheet

2. Spray with water

3. Press watercolour cardstock into the ink and dry with your heat gun

4. Emboss two butterflies with white powder onto scrap watercolour cardstock and then follow steps 1-3. Once dry, I used some markers to randomly add more ink to the butterflies and then sprayed with water again.

5. Back to your main panel – stamp the script stamp from the Spring Lilacs set. Then stamp the butterfly twice with the same colour ink. This will give a subtle background.

6. Flick some white acrylic paint over the top of the panel.

7. Cut out your embossed butterflies and pop them up with foam pads.

8. Add perfect pearls all over the card.

Here is my next card using the same butterfly stamp

Inspired by Stamping, Kylie Purtell, Butterflies stamp set, Teeny Tiny Greetings stamp set, CAS card, Butterfly Card, Friend Card

How to make this card –

1. Emboss your butterfly in the bottom right hand corner

2. Emboss the sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Greetings set

3. Done! CAS perfection!!!

Here is my last card –

Inspired by Stamping, Kylie Purtell, Butterflies stamp set, Teeny Tiny Greetings stamp set, CAS card, Butterfly Card, Friend Card

How to make this card –

1. Emboss your butterflies and sentiment onto watercolour cardstock

2. Follow steps 1-3 for my first card to create your background.

3. Swipe your ink pad onto an acrylic block, spray with water and let the drips fall onto the cardstock to create ‘splats’

4. Use some paper towel to wipe over your embossed lines and remove any ink

There you go! Three cards using the same set. Aren’t these butterflies amazing!!!
