Good morning Pretty Pink Posh friends! Heather here this morning with a look at the newest free-with-purchase stamp set at Pretty Pink Posh called Butterfly Friends – as well as a couple of the dies and sequin mixes that are part of the new release! This new stamp set and coordinating dies will be free with a qualifying purchases in January 2018, while supplies last! I’m showing one card layout two ways – a shaker card, and what I call a “faux shaker”!
The Butterfly Friends stamp set is kind of fun and unique because a couple of the butterflies have a solid image that can be stamped with colored ink to “color” the butterfly without markers or pencils – although you can also do that if you prefer. The others are perfect for coloring and shading. I used all the butterflies in the set for my cards – it’s fun how well they work together too!
I also adhered the butterflies for lots of dimension. I folded up the wings, then applied adhesive just to the centers. That way the butterflies pop up in such a realistic way – so fun!
For both cards, I also used the new Storybook 6 dies – for the first one I die cut it then trimmed the edges down to form a shaker. I did a bit of watercoloring with distress inks to create a background, and filled my shaker with the new Spring Blooms Mix. I stamped the solid butterflies with Distress Oxide ink in Seedless Preserves, then used coordinating Copics to color the remaining butterflies. I die cut just the word “hello” from the new Hello Friend Script die (love that those two words work together or on their own!).
My second card, I again used the Storybook 6 die, only this time I cut it out of a panel of white cardstock that I had inked with distress in, then again from white cardstock – fitting in the white pieces with foam adhesive to pop them up a bit. Then, to create the “faux” shaker on this card, I smeared a good bit of Ranger Multi-matte Medium on the bottoms of each panel, sprinkled on some of the new Party Time Mix (pressing it down to adhere it well), then shook off the excess. Once that dried, I adhered the die cut “hello” and the butterflies – this time the solid ones were stamped with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink and the rest again colored with coordinating Copics.
Don’t all these butterflies have you longing for spring? I know they are making me look forward to it soon!
The free Butterfly Friends stamp set will be automatically sent with orders over $60 once the new release goes live. In addition, if your order totals over $75, you’ll get the coordinating dies too! This stamp set will be available for purchase in May 2018, but for those who qualify, you’ll get these items four months before anyone else!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you are having a wonderful day!!!
