I'm so happy that the Feel Goods and Swallowtail stamp sets ARE NOT retiring and will be avilable in the new 2014-2015 Idea Book & Catalog! My absolute favorite way to use this big, beautiful butterfly stamp is to cut it apart and put it back together so it looks like the butterfly is gently sitting on a flower, soaking up the sun and nectar!
It's so EASY to do -- just stamp one wing of the butterfly (either right or left) twice, color it in and then layer it with Stampin' Dimensionals (I stacked up 3 dimensionals to really give the wings some separation). I also cut the body off the butterfly and repositioned it so it looked more natural with the uplifted wings. I drew in the antennae with a black Stampin' Write Marker.
My butterfly didn't land on a flower today but rather, an old fashioned Tea Lace Doily. And the sentiment from the Feel Goods stamp set seemed perfect!
Other supplies and tools used include Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz cardstock, Coastal Cabana Blendabilities (available to order with the new catalog on June 2nd), 2-way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, the 2.5" Circle Punch and Basic Rhinestones! A complete list of supplies can be found below. Just click on any thumbnail to go directly to my online store and place an order so that you can recreate this card for yourself.
That will do it for today! Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope I've been able to share a little inspiration with you. Please come back soon. Until then ...
