Hello friends! Yesterday was Mother’s Day in Australia and I received this beautiful bouquet from ‘my girls’ (daughter and granddaughter) – they know I love flowers!
I gave myself an early Mother’s Day present and bought this stamp and die bundle weeks ago (its now retired) and opened it for the first time this afternoon 🙂 These are the stamps:
And here are the coordinating dies – there are lots of them!!
The set only has one stamp which has multiple butterflies:
I always use a stamping platform for these larger stamps; I inked it up in Gorgeous Grape:
Pressing the stamp down requires two hands so I stand when doing this 🙂
It produced a crisp and clear image:
This large die then fits over all the images …
… and it cuts out 6 butterflies with one pass through the die-cutting machine: brilliant!
Not the best photo, but I chose an embossed butterfly layer for the card:
This is the largest butterfly with some glimmer (Wink of Stella) on its wings – shame its so hard to photograph the shimmer!
I may or may not add a sentiment … :
MEANWHILE … I bought these earrings to wear on Make it Mondays!
I hope the week has started well for you and thank you so much for dropping by! Megan xo
