Stampin' Up! has several choices of stamp sets with butterflies.  But it's always more fun to play with the newest one, the Butterfly Brilliance bundle.

I discovered a few things while making this "stencil" card.  See DOstamping Tips below.

Stencil with Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Wings Dies shared by Dawn Olchefske for DOstamperSTARS-#DOswts359 #dostamping #HowdSheDOthat #papercrafting

DOstamping Tips:

  • Stamp butterflies on white panel with Gorgeous Grape and let dry
    • note the above photo doesn't show the stamping, as I wanted to let you see what only the stenciling looked like (as you could just do that without stamping.
  • Create & Use Stencil:
    • I recommend using a thicker cardstock or thin cardboard, like the white backer board that comes with our Designer Series Paper Packs.  Especially if you want to save and reuse the stencil.
    • Die cut the "group of butterflies" single die from (5-1/2" x 6-1/2") backer board.
    • On a piece of scratch paper (to protect your surface), place a small amount of Stampin' Seal.  Rub fingers over it to take away some of the stickiness.  Place the stamped white piece over the adhesive (this will keep it in place so it doesn't slide around.  I learned this the hard way - ha!).
    • On the back side of the stencil, add adhesive to a couple corners (rub away some stickiness).  Place stencil over white piece - aligning the butterfly images.
    • Use Blending Brush to add Highland Heather ink through stencil in a circular fashion.  (Start with a little ink and then add more to get your desired shade).
    • Remove stencil and stamped piece from scratch paper.

At first, I wasn't sure I'd like all these butterflies on a single stamp.  But it actually saves time, which is great for anyone who wants to spend just a little of their extra time stamping and card making.  Try to think of it like a background stamp with lots of versatility. 

Add just about any sentiment to the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle and you've got a card for any occasion.  Add it to your shopping cart today!

Thank you for shopping with me!
