Fun Foam + Butterfly Framelits = Butterfly stamps!
When I was playing with color combos for the Watercolor Wings butterfly stamps (see this post and video), I really wanted to create a monarch butterfly... but I found that I just didn't seem to have the right stamp images... but now I do!! I die cut my own outline butterfly stamp using Fun Foam and the Butterflies Thinlits!
My fellow demonstrator Pat shared this idea with me.. she saw it on pinterest or on a blog and I thought it was genius!
Make your own Butterfly stamp! Pick up a piece of self-adhesive Fun Foam at the local craft store, and die cut your own butterfly stamps using the Stampin' Up! Bold Butterfly Framelits and Butterflies Thinlits and your Big Shot! Then peel n stick them to clear blocks!! You may want to get an extra couple of blocks and leave them stuck to the block.. that's what I did. SEE the bottom of this post for all online ordering info for these Stampin' Up! products.
As noted above, I found it really easy to pick out the extra portions on the intricate butterfly piece with tweezers, then I peeled off the backing and stuck it to my clear block.
So what do you think? Did I achieve my stamped Monarch butterfly!?
I stamped the first layer of the Watercolor Wings stamp in Daffodil Delight, then the 2nd layer in Calypso Coral and the 3rd piece in Watermelon Wonder. The detailed image die cut outline butterfly is stamped on top with Memento Black ink.
I was pretty happy with it!!!
As you can see, I also stamped the background with the same die cut butterfly "stamp". I stamped it with Bermuda Bay ink and then put a piece of vellum cardstock over it to soften it. It's layered onto Basic Black cardstock and onto a Daffodil Delight folded card.
The congrats wooden element is from the Expressions Natural Elements selection, pg 160 in the Stampin' UP! catalog, #138395 on your online order. See THIS VIDEO for instructions on coloring your Natural Elements.
