Curios Launch Week: Butterfly Stretch

Hello! This week, the Stampendous Design Team is sharing the debut of the wonderful new Curio Stamps. These stamps are unique because they are meant to be displayed. And they are all so pretty! I chose to work with the Butterfly Stretch today.

I recently purchased a 1-2-3 Punch from We R Memory Keepers, and I immediately thought of using this Butterfly Stretch with it. The 1-2-3 Punch makes boxes, bows, and envelopes, but I wanted to start with a box. So I used a piece of 110 lb Recollections cardstock and stamped the butterfly all over it with VersaFine Clair ink from Imagine in Nocturne. Then I colored the box with Zig Clean Color Markers.

Creating the box, once all of the butterflies were colored, was super simple. Then I made a coordinating bow. The Punch Board is very easy to use, and I love that I can create whatever pattern or design I want on a box, bow, or envelope. And then, displaying these sweet Curio stamps in my craft room us a fantastic bonus!

I'll have another Curio project later in the week, but for now, please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog to see more wonderful projects featuring these beautiful stamps. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

The butterfly is SO pretty. I would love to try out coloring it with many different things--watercolor, alcohol markers, distress crayons, etc.
What an ingenious way to showcase this adorable little curio butterfly stamp!!

Love the colors on your butterflies.
I have some cubes of paper - I thought
that might be what this was at first.
These butterflies will look so pretty
on the sides of the cubes and a
wonderful decoration as I use the paper.
thanks for sharing

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
