New Product Tour - Inspired by Butterflies


It's time! All those gorgeous new stamps and Die-namics you've been drooling over are available here now at My Favorite Things!

Do you have a fave new product? I love the Photo Corners Die-namics and the new Inspired by Butterflies Die-namics which I'm showing off today! It makes amazing large embellishments for your cards and paper crafting.


The new Inspired by Butterflies Die-namics coordinate perfectly with the previously released Inspired by Butterflies stamp set. I find it easiest to cut the butterflies first, then stamp.

For my card I tried to colour my butterfly as a Monarch Butterfly. I use google images when I'm trying to be a little more realistic with my colouring, although I always end up taking some artistic license! For the Monarch colouring, I noticed there were lots of white dots on the black parts of the butterfly, so I added these in with a white gel pen. I have added some accent shine to the butterfly using a Spica pen, though it might be hard to see in photos.

The sentiment is stamped on a Clearly Sentimental Label and the papers were all from my scrap bin.


I've stamped another sentiment on the inside of my card, and used some gorgeous Martha Stewart ribbon as embellishment.

that butterfly just pops off the page! you used one of my fav dies (which is on my wishlist!) and I love the quote and mix of ribbon and bling with the patterned papers! I'd hang this little work of art on my wall so I could see it every day! :)
