When I received these Saturday Evening Post Vintage Butterfly stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms I could not put them down. I'm usually a hopelessly slow paper crafter but with these stamps I created a TON of projects in one sitting.
I.LOVE.THESE.STAMPS!! There are so many different butterflies on the set as well as many wonderful sentiments. Really you need to run on over and put these in your cart!!
You can check out all the other design team creations with this set in the SEP Butterfly gallery.
Stamps: Saturday Evening Post Butterflies by Cornish Heritage Farms, French Script backgrounder by Cornish Heritage Farms
Ink: Staz On Jet black, Memories Dye Ink (Stewart Superior), Tsukineko Kaleidacolor Pad - Cappuccino Delight
Cardstock: DCWV black card base, Ranger Glossy cardstock
Technique: Brayered sky, layering of stamps
1. Stamp French Script backgrounder stamp onto glossy cardstock using Staz On ink. Note: I used a fading technique by applying ink darker in the top right corner and fading out over the stamp.
2. Create brayered background using Kaleidacolor pad with darker shade to the left of the cardstock
3. Stamp butterflies in black ink diagonally across center of card. Stamp sentiment in bottom right corner.
4. Heat set to ensure ink is completely dry and attach to card base.
Note: the card is a standard A2 size. I trimmed the glossy cardstock design to 5 x 3 ¾" before adhering to card base .
