It's an exciting week over at Inspired by Stamping because it is Release Week!

Joanna has outdone herself again! You really need to pop on over and see what we have come up with starting with today.

You will see why I am excited when I show you the new Butterflies set. They are amazing!!

I was so excited that I made 3 cards with this set. You will see how differently you can use one single stamp.

My first card -

How to make this card -

1. Swipe distress ink pads across your craft sheet
2. Spray with water
3. Press watercolour cardstock into the ink and dry with your heat gun
4. Emboss two butterflies with white powder onto scrap watercolour cardstock and then follow steps 1-3. Once dry, I used some markers to randomly add more ink to the butterflies and then sprayed with water again.
5. Back to your main panel - stamp the script stamp from the Spring Lilacs set. Then stamp the butterfly twice with the same colour ink. This will give a subtle background.
6. Flick some white acrylic paint over the top of the panel.
7. Cut out your embossed butterflies and pop them up with foam pads.
8. Add perfect pearls all over the card.

Here is my next card using the same butterfly stamp

How to make this card -

1. Emboss your butterfly in the bottom right hand corner
2. Emboss the sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Greetings set
3. Done! CAS perfection!!!

Here is my last card -

How to make this card -

1. Emboss your butterflies and sentiment onto watercolour cardstock
2. Follow steps 1-3 for my first card to create your background.
3. Swipe your ink pad onto an acrylic block, spray with water and let the drips fall onto the cardstock to create 'splats'
4. Use some paper towel to wipe over your embossed lines and remove any ink

There you go! Three cards using the same set. Aren't these butterflies amazing!!!
