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 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.

An OOPS!

On January 6th we published our Butterflies and Dies, Oh My! post. In it we attributed this beautiful mixed media canvas to our fabulous Fran Seiford. But it turns out (oops!!) it was created by our Artist Consultant Debbie Cole, CDA!   So sorry, Debbie, for the boo boo! We’re so glad you brought it to our attention. And this gives all of you another chance to view it’s Springtime wonder!

Butterflies Tout Suite

Ever noticed how many butterfly images pop up in designs around you? They are colorful and come in all shapes and sizes that it’s no wonder they are a popular image in design.

The butterflies from our Jumbo Butterfly Trio Stamp Set are huge images and great for finishing projects like card making, gifts, canvas art and even gorgeous home decor.

They are also the same size as our Butterflies Cutting Die Set for even more ways to create off the page.

Dreaming of Fluttering Designs

Butterflies have such a wonderful pattern of fluttering around, just thinking about it will lift your spirits. If only they would sit still long enough to enjoy their beautiful design. So here are two more projects from the Stampendous team.

Fran perfectly designed this card with the fluttering of wings from PenPattern Butterflies Set and an amazing Creative Palette monoprint.

Butterflies and Dies, Oh My!

Hello and welcome to a new week and a new product focus! Our Winter Wonderland last week was frosty fun and it was so wonderful to see you come along for the inspiration even as we were ringing in the New Year!

If the designer’s projects impressed you last week when they added vibrant fun colors to our snowy images, this week they are going to have us all dreaming of Spring with butterflies and dies!

Let’s bring on the beautiful butterfly inspiration!

Our PenPattern Butterflies are so much fun to color with their strong designs and patterns. There is also a free stencil and mask that comes in the package for decorative painting and mixed media projects.

The coordinating set of Butterflies Die Cutting set make it easy to create three-dimensional projects or brighten up decor with a spring theme.

Fran•táge a Friendly Greeting

These beautiful collage stamps we’re featuring this week capture perfectly the Fran•táge style. Vintage, shabby chic, a bit timeworn and well-loved (or neglected), all these elements lend a charm and beauty to items and greetings. We’ve done the work for you with collages of vintage and original images combined with Fran’s flair for composition to create these gorgeous stamps. Each with a small space perfect for the greetings from our Quotes Perfectly Clear Stamps™ sets.

The design team has been sharing all week, and they’ve more to share today! Hope you’ve enjoyed the inspiration and might want to add a couple of these images to your collection!

Kristine Reynolds made this gorgeous card without a greeting! So festive and sweet with all the butterflies adding so much texture, and using the Encrusted Jewel Technique on the edges of her focal point!

Beautiful Butterflies

Our Spring Collage images are just perfect for a quick and colorful card! Pick certain areas to color, color the whole thing, don’t color any of it! Stamp on patterned paper for a quick card, or layer over many other images for a textured wonder! These great images are super simple to use.

You’ll notice that each of the images has a “space” that’s perfect for a greeting! Well, our Quotes greetings sets have lots of words that fit beautifully in those spaces.  They are:

Angel Wings Perfectly Clear StampsSSC1201 Angel Wings Quotes

Regal Bird QuotesSSC1202 Regal Bird Quotes

and

Royal Heart Quotes Perfectly Clear StampsSSC1203 Royal Heart Quotes

Here, DT member Kristine Reynolds shows how several layers plus some Encrusted Jewel Technique make a really dynamic card. You can get the supplies and directions for this card on our website.
