Life is beautiful. Some days you have to try a little harder to find life’s beauty, but with this new stamp and die set, you can rest assured that beauty will appear. Butterflies are a favorite image of mine and symbolize how life changes. With this stamp set, you can do the same – change designs from something simple to something artsy. Today, I’ve created two similar cards. One is a simple design and the other features a stamping technique.
On this 4×6 card, I stamped the butterflies in simply chartreuse, raspberry fizz, summer sunrise, and hawaiian shores inks. Next, I stamped the sentiment. A very easy design, but a striking birthday card.
The font for “Beautiful” is so pretty. There are so many sentiment combinations you can use with the word.
This 4×6 card uses a similar repetitive butterfly pattern. However, on this design, I added stamping to the detail of the butterflies
To get the multi-colored ink effect, I used a baby wipe ink pad technique. I’ll be sure to share a demonstration of this technique with you in an upcoming Make It Monday video.
For the sentiment, I made Beautiful jump out a bit on a cardstock strip.
I also used a bit of generation stamping on the details of the summer sunrise butterfly. I liked how the inking is a bit lighter on that butterfly since it’s not has bold as raspberry fizz and hawaiian shores.
I also used another stamp in the set to create a polka dot pattern. I can’t get enough of polka dots these days.
