Butterfly Basics

Hi there! Today I'm sharing a card made with the Butterfly Basics stamp set and it's matching Butterfly Framelits. I've just now got my hands on them, since they've been sold out for awhile. This is the stamp set I showed in the video yesterday, and will be carried over into the new catalog!

I tried the random collage stamping again, and am happy with the results. I used softer color inks to not distract from the die cut butterflies. Which, by the way, use two brand new In Colors Mint Macaron and Watermelon Wonder!

When I die cut these, I used wax paper in between the die. It worked great, but I did have to run them through my machine twice using the magnetic platform. I haven't tried the regular multipurpose platform yet, I think that it is a little bit tighter fit. But Stampin' Up!'s 80lb card stock holds up perfectly even in this intricate shape.

Going to try to get some crafting in today, Friday's are usually my running around day, but it looks like it's going to rain, so what a perfect time to go stow away for awhile!! :)

Thanks so much for visiting today!!
