HLS Spotlight - Butterfly Birthday

Hi everyone. The last couple of days have found me thinking I would like to spotlight some of the stamp sets from Happy Little Stampers. My first choice, of course, was the very first set designed called Butterfly Birthday and the coordinating dies.

Here are my cards

My first card was completely inspired by the very talented Ingrid who designs for Happy Little Stampers. Ingrid is also on the HLS Video Crew and created an amazing 2 part tutorial. I changed up the design a little but the techniques that Ingrid used are definitely there. Check out Part 1 HERE and Part 2 HERE.

Here is my next card using the same technique as the first. I've added a strip of vellum which I have stamped the sentiment on.

Stamps & Fun - Birthday

My 3rd card was very simple to make. Using some patterned paper I bought with a kit while on a cruise in Hawaii, I die cut my butterfly as an aperture to show the pretty rainbow of colours.

Below is a recap of more cards I have made using the Butterfly Birthday set. There are also links to the video tutorials if you would like to have a go at any of the techniques.
