Mini Stamps Blog Blitz - Ornamental Butterflies
by JJ Bolton


Hi guys! I'm continuing the Mini Stamp Blog Blitz with two cards using the Ornamental Butterflies stamp set and coordinating die set!  I have a soft spot for butterflies, so I was so happy to see these sets!  For my first card, I used the butterfly die to create a negative die cut that I backed with an ink-blended background.  


For a little added detail, I heat embossed in clear the swirly design inside the butterfly.  Here's a close up of the embossing...  


I also made another quickie card using all of the butterfly dies and a piece of watercolored paper that I had saved for a rainy day project.  


When I have my watercolors out, sometimes I make four or five sheets at a time.  This rainbow piece fit perfectly behind the die cut butterflies.  I put the sentiment on a piece of vellum so it would not cover up much.  So easy!


The Mini Stamp Blog Blitz will continue tomorrow, so don't forget to stop by!  And don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win one of the new stamp sets!  (Yes, you CAN comment on each post!)  You have until June 2, 12:00 midnight US EST to leave comments. Winners will be announced June 4th!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful week!
