I feel like spring is finally in the air and what a wonderful way to celebrate than with this card design?! It feels so much like spring and the beautiful stylized butterflies are simply bursting off the card front in a splash of color. The new Beautiful Butterflies stamp set and Beautiful Butterflies Die-namics first made their appearance at MFT Stamps in the form of a limited edition kit a couple months ago. I missed out on creating with it then due to time constraints but I was determined to absolutely NOT let another minute pass me by before spending some time in my creative space with it. I knew I’d love it and I was absolutely right. If you missed out on it in the kit, it’s all available at the April Product Launch in separate products so you can pick and choose what you want.
Also included in the kit was the You Give Me Butterflies stamp set which is a beautiful script font sentiment set that works perfectly with this set and you can also use it on it’s own or paired up with other great MFT Stamps product. I used the thank you sentiment as I needed one of those, but please…check out the other amazing and more unique sentiments in it as well.
One of the fun things about this freestyle butterfly set is the beautiful “painted” strokes that layer on the butterfly. It’s a three step stamping set but you can totally change it up and use the layers any way you’d like. You’ll get a totally different look if you leave off one of the steps! To go with this painted look…I pulled out an older (but not old!!!) release called Distressed Patterns. I love how you can ink it up in any color and get a perfectly stamped paint look for the background. If you are scared of watercolor or just don’t feel like painting, these stamps are the perfect go-to solution! And you always get the paint exactly where you want it!
Check out the pretty panel that anchors the focal point. The new Sentiment Label Strip Die-namics. This was last months free with $60 purchase promo die and if you missed out, you are going to want to snag it now. I just want to put it on everything!
One thing I try very hard to do here is to share something on each and every blog post. It can be a tip or a technique, a sketch or a color combo and sometimes even a digital file. Today I thought I’d share a color combo graphic as it’s one I’m absolutely loving and don’t want to forget it! It’s actually making me a little hungry and to me its looking like frozen sherbet! I hope you enjoy it and give it a whirl. Feel free to pin this color combo to your Pinterest board as a great place to keep it handy.
It’s been really fun and stampy around here for the past week but there’s still more to come! Be sure to stop by the MFT blog as the release countdowns always bring tons of inspiration and chances to win! What’s not to love?! And don’t forget…tonight’s the night! I’m counting down the hours until the full Product Launch…how about you?
