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!
Abstract Butterfly Stencils 360°TM
If you are new to our innovative Stencils 360°TM, please head over to our YouTube channel and watch our Intro Video about this awesome tool!
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.
I adhered them onto our Navy Blazer cardstock and added a belly band using our Elegant Backwash – Premium Fine Paper, and finished it off with an outline butterfly (die cut from the Butterfly Emergence 2 in 1 Layered Dies) in Vintage Beetle to go with my stenciled butterflies.
The sentiment “Handmade With Love” was from the Magical Christmas Sentiment stamp set which I white heat embossed onto the Grand Piano cardstock.
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.
