If you need some inspiration for spring cards, you’ll love the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set bundled with the Butterflies Thinlits. You can see the handmade birthday card I showed in this post: Butterfly Bundle. This is such a great bundle, you may find it addicting, as I have!
Here’s a close up view of the butterfly and background. I used some Vanilla Smooch Spritz to give the Blackberry Bliss butterfly a bit of bling.
The stamp set is full of great images for creating a collage-like effect for a background. Here’s a photo of the Butterfly Basics stamp set. I can’t link to it in the Online Stampin’ Up! Store yet, since the Spring Occasions Catalog doesn’t go live until Tuesday. But when it does, if you look on the left hand side of the main page of the store, you’ll see a link to the Occasions Catalog.
Here are the item numbers for the Butterfly Basics stamp set: Wood mount – 138813, Clear mount – 138816, Photopolymer – 137154. Of course when you purchase it in the bundle, you’ll save 15% off the cost of buying the stamp set and Thinlits separately. Here are the numbers for the bundles: Wood mount – 139322, Clear mount – 139323, Photopolymer – 138865.
Since so many of you have let me know that the design tips I’ve been sharing are helpful, I made a quick video showing two versions of this card, and why I wasn’t happy with the first one. Take a look:
