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

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
