Or, if you have some extra time and want to step it up, you can use an oval die to cut out the frame and make a shaker card, then cut an extra butterfly to overlap in style.

Laurel Burch – Part I

Laurel Burch Banner

We were very excited to add to our collection of Laurel Burch images in our April Catalog. These whimsical images which lend to bright, beautiful colors just have us completely enchanted. We’ll look this week at some of the new images and then  a little later on in May at the rest of them. Remember that our Laurel Burch Coloring Guide is yours to download so that you can get the Laurel Burch look on your own projects.

First up is the beautiful Imagine Butterflies set! Five lovely butterflies with masks/stencil included plus a pair of antennae to share and the word “imagine,” can be paired with the matching Cutting Dies set to create an entire garden full of magical flutterings.

The Butterflies of Spring

Stampendous friend, Donna Cennimo, a decorative painter, created this gorgeous canvas featuring Stampendous butterflies and embossing powders. We are so excited that she shared them with us, and we thought you’d enjoy seeing this wonderfully colored nod to Spring.

Donna embossed each butterfly with two layers of Chunky Clear Embossing Powder then added colors as desired. She used Detail Black, Silver Tinsel, Purple, Blue, Chunky Gold and Chunky Silver on different areas of the butterflies. Then she attached them to one of her paintings and she has some left for other amazing projects.

Here are some closeups of the butterflies –

 

Thanks, Donna, for sharing such a pretty, Spring project with us. Your painting is wonderful and your army of butterflies are a colorful bit of cheer!!

More Lovely Lilacs

A new lilac image arrived in our House-Mouse stamps to add to the lovely lilacs theme of products. We adore this Lilac Aroma stamp as much as Monica does smelling the fragrance of these syringa flowers.

And we know the lilac is Monica’s favorite flower because she was caught smelling the Scent of Lilac on another stamp and smelling flowers is any House-Mouse personal amusement in the garden. Stop by the House-Mouse stamp section of our website to see more!

Before we move on to inspiration from our design team today, here are more flowers we want you to see from the latest catalog. Cyclamen and Geraniums are beautiful and a joy to make into cards or adding to your garden journal.

And now here is the entire week of design team inspiration starting with today’s posts.

Lovely Lilacs In Time For Spring

stampfocus_blog_lilacs

We are back today with our Lilac Cling Stamps Set and Lilac Die Set to show the signs of spring you can achieve with a couple of helpful tools!

Fran created this beautiful springtime card easily by using the coordinating dies for the butterflies, lilac, and leaves, but she used another valuable die tool to give the card it’s dimensional look.

If you guessed Fran’s Pop Up, Die Set you are correct, but if you alternately said Pop Up Stages Die Set that would work just as great! Our Pop Up Stages offers more variation in dimension with the individual dies for columns, tabs, and stages, but the results are spectacular whichever die set that you choose.

 

Adding dimension with our Lilac stamps and dies extends to this fantastic mixed media key piece by Dee Adams.

Lilac Butterfly Key by Dee Adams

The butterflies were stamped into Chunky Embossing Powder on a die cut to give depth to the wings. As well Dee added them, so they look like they are taking a brief rest on the antiqued key. Click the photo’s caption for more information about this amazing project.

Lovely Lilacs

It can be spring any time of the year with our Lilac Cling Stamps Set and coordinating Lilac Die Set. The large size lilac makes a terrific impression on handmade cards and scrapbook pages with great butterflies to set a delightful spring scene.

There are many ways to combine the images in this set for dozens of unique projects, and we’ll share a few here today! Here is a great video with Fran Seiford sharing various ideas on creating with these stamp and die sets, plus you’ll get some storage tips you won’t want to miss!

Here are some of the beautiful and creative cards Fran designed with the Lilacs Stamp Set and Die Set.

As we always love sharing inspiration with our readers, you can find more project ideas from our design team today and throughout the week!
