Hi all — Vicki here.  I hope you all had a safe and happy New Year’s Eve.  I’m still trying to wrap my mind around it being 2016!

For today’s small tutorial, I am making a fun shaped card/ tag, that is perfect for  labeling those gift bags. For today’s project I used Butterflies [and svg cuts] along with Happy Occasions Sentiments.  Here is the finished project:

Inspired by Stamping, Vicki Dutcher, Butterflies stamp set,

To make this fun shaped card/ tag here are the steps:

Using my Silhouette [there are svg files to all IBS stamps sets], I offset the original outline of my butterfly a few times [for the different layers you see].  For my tag base, I merged two butterflies to make a solid double butterfly cut.

Using the original butterfly negative cut, and my MISTI,  I was able to get the perfect stamped image onto the positive cut.

Step 2

Step 3

I then colored the image with my Copics

Step 4

I adhered my colored image onto a black outline and adhered those onto the card/tag.


I went ahead and finished the inside too [card part ;)].


I punched a hole, added a tie, and my card/tag is ready for use~


Keeping in mind that all Inspired By Stamping stamp sets have svg cuts, you can make shaped card/tags out of any of the shaped images!  How convenient [and fun] is that!

See you next time~
