Butterfly Basics – the hit of Occasions 2015 [and my product “miss”]

There are sooooo many lovely products in Occasions 2015 – it’s hard to choose a favourite (much like choosing a favourite child I think!).  But based on my Pinterest feed, the Butterfly Basics stamp set & Butterfly framelits have definitely been popular.

There has been lots of discussion & sharing for tips that help with getting great butterfly die cuts.  My favourite two are:

  • 3 layers of waxed paper – under the cardstock, between the cardstock & the die and on top of the die
  • using dryer sheets under the cardstock.  I hear fragrance free dryer sheets are hard to get in Australia (try shops or online companies that import US products as they are popular in the US), but these are supposed to work much better than the fragrance filled ones available (though both will work).

This was the first card I made using my butterfly bundle.  The stamp set style is quite ‘shabby chic’, so perfect for layering.


And this is my ‘how did I miss that moment’…  Stampin’ Up! sells a beautiful product called Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.  It’s not new … but I have only just added it to my collection.  A couple of little sprays gives your card a wonderful, magical shimmer – perfect!  It gives the butterfly a little bit of extra “wow”!  Anyway, I have it now (and have everything crossed that it’s carrying over to the next catalogue), so will smooching & spritzing my way through 2015!  Kelly x
