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

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
