I also love how this card works for a lot of different occasions; anniversaries, friendships, just because, valentine’s, you name it!
Next we have Karen’s inspiration. Her card also features the butterfly from the Butterfly Emergence 2 in 1 Layered Dies. She picked just one of the dies from Layer 3. I really love how this intricate die alone gives a card an elegant focal point!
For the background, she used the Slimline Oriental Cover Die. This is a slimline cover die, and she cleverly trimmed this off so that it works for her standard size card!

She only used Layers 3 and 4 from the layered die set yet her butterfly looks absolutely stunning! The gold heat embossed sentiment was from Magical Christmas Sentiments. I love the matching gold sequins as the finishing touch!
Julie made a charming anniversary card while also pairing this cover die with the Butterfly Emergence 2 in 1 Layered Dies. She used all of the 4 layers in the layered die set to create her delightful butterflies. The layering details on these are so amazing!
I love her mini belly band design on where she added a French sentiment which I find truly unique!
I love how she added a line of gems to accentuates the butterfly silhouette and the pop of colors against the pure white background!

Today I am super excited to introduce to you one of our new circular stencils in the Stencils 360°TM series, called the Abstract Butterfly!
From the image above, you can see there’re 4 circles as the Alignment Marker. Therefore, to achieve its intended design, follow these 3 simple steps:
It’s that simple! But of course, it can be fun to break the rules and explore new looks! And that’s the best thing about this tool! You can achieve so many different looks with just ONE single stencil!
Let’s take a look at what I mean in the next two cards!
Karen ink blended only the larger butterfly on the stencil and rotated her stencil by 60° each time (jumping 2 intervals on the ‘circle’ scale instead of 4). By doing this, she ended up with six butterflies in an array of colors after one full turn!
I love that she used a large canvas and then split it into two; and voilà, she got herself 2 cards! The two sentiments are from the Let’s Meet IRL stamp set.
Next we have Candice’s card. Instead of inking up both butterflies on the stencil, she also chose to ink up the larger butterfly of the two. She used a turning interval of 60° (again jumping 2 cirlces in each turn). I absolutely love the rainbow hue on this card! Notice how the colors blended on her note card also go seamlessly with these pretty butterflies!
She added matching-color gems to finished off her card together with a Happy Birthday sentiment from the Enchanting Paris stamp set.
Finally we have my card! I wanted to show you what it would look like if you did follow the Alignment Marker and rotate your stencil at 120° intervals (ie. jumping 4 intervals each time as shown in my images at the top). And this is what you’d get!
I used two different ink colors from the Catherine Pooler collections, namely Juniper Mist and Green Tea for my blending. I wanted to create a cut-it-up look on my card, so I cut my card into 3 long vertical sections.
That concludes our inspirations for today! If you haven’t done so, head over to our Day 1 post and participate in our BLOG + IG GIVEAWAYS! You have until TONIGHT 9:00pm PST to enter. Don’t miss your chances! Winners will be announced on our Blog and on Instagram tomorrow 16 Oct.

This layering stamp set is so much fun to play with. Stefanie chose different layers from this stamp set to create these two gorgeous koi fish. I love her watercolor background which compliments the fish beautifully.
I am loving the gold heat embossed sentiment as well! The details on these koi are just stunning!
This is a no-bulk shaker, which means I did not use any foam tape for my shaker pocket but instead I only used some double-sided adhesive. This way, there is just enough movement but not too much that it would be too distracting.
I used Versafine Onyx Black to stamp out the outlines of my koi fish and clear heat embossed them to get a shiny finish.
Our next showcase is the Butterfly Emergence 2 in 1 Layered Dies. I am in love with this Layered die set because this is so versatile and gives gorgeous results! You can simply use the Set 1 cover dies to create an exquisite look of a colorful layered butterfly emerging from a dotted sunburst background; or use Set 2 alone for a beautifully layered butterfly with intricate details. You can even combine the two sets for the extra dimension!
First we have Candice’s creation. Even though she did not used all of the layers for this card, you can already see the beautiful details that this die set gives!
I love the white on white background. The Sentiment on this card is from the Enchanting Paris stamp set.
Finally, we have here my A2 size card. Using ALL seven dies from this set I die cut all the pieces using Navy Blazer for layer 1 (the very bottom layer), and Grape Macaron for layer 3, and Lime Punch for layer 4 (the very top layer). In each respective layer, I adhered Set 2 on top of Set 1, to create this extra depth to my card. I then adhered all layers together starting with layer 1 on the bottom, working my way up to layer 4 at the top.
I blended Twisted Citron, Salvaged Patina, and Cracked Pistachio on my note card and adhered my layered die cuts onto my note card. I also added a a white heat embossed sentiment from our Heartfelt Note stamp set on to the matching Navy Blazer cardstock.
Finally I added some mixed sized and colors gems to give it the extra sparkle.
For my next card, I used the stand-alone butterfly dies from Layer 1 and Layer 4 to create this inlaid butterfly. This is a fun way to make full use of this die set.
I used the new Handmade Porcelain Stencil for my background, and I stamped out Heartfelt thanks from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set. I mixed and match some glitter cardstock with the Lime Punch cardstock for this technique. For the outline of the butterfly I used the deep Navy Blazer cardstock which I thought really gives the butterfly a sharp defined look.

She die cut 3 stitched slimline panels to create the sky and the grassy hills scene. I love the Distress Oxide ink blending on the background. She used Tumbled Glass for the sky, and Mowed Lawn and Shabby Shutters for the grassy hills.
I love the smiley trees which are built using the images from My BFF stamp set, the bunnies, flowers, butterflies and the kitty in the trolley are also from the same set.
I love that she added some cute refreshments on the table (those adorable sushis are from Never Give Up stamp set) to make the scene even more interesting! Looks like this bunch is having a great party!
She assembled her card using both liquid glue and foam tape to create a bit of dimension to the card.
