An Exquisite Butterfly


I finally broke out the Butterfly Basics bundle:

Maui Stamper Butterfly Basics Shimmer White

  • Stamps:  Butterfly Basics
  • Color Palette:  Whisper White, Shimmer White, Pool Party
  • Accessories:  Butterfly Basics Thinlets, Vellum, Pool Party cotton ribbon, Pearls, Stampin’ Dimensionals

The bad news is that the Butterflies Thinlets are currently unavailable.  It’s a serious challenge, but it’s one that is outside of Stampin’ Up!’s ability to control – the problem is due to shipping problems through the West Coast ports.  I’m taking names and details now of anyone who would like this product so that as soon as it is available I can place an order.

Just a few construction details…

Maui Stamper Butterfly Basics Shimmer WhiteI cut the butterfly in Shimmer White paper, then used the negative template to draw an outline on a piece of vellum.  I hand-trimmed the shape – can’t call it fussy cut because it wasn’t very fussy as the edges are hidden behind the die cut.  I carefully adhered it with Tombo (the Wonder Adhesive).  Use a very light touch with the Tombo.  A few well-placed Stampin’ Dimensionals hold the butterfly above the ferns.

Maui Stamper Butterfly Basics Shimmer WhiteI struggled with the details but ultimately decided that for once, less could be more.  I hope you enjoy!  And please let me know if you’d like to be on my Priority List for the Butterfly Basics Bundle!
