Taylored Expressions August Sneak Peek: Butterfly Parade


It's the first day of sneak peeks for August and Taylor and her team have so much to show you. I'm playing along today with a new set and the coordinating dies I illustrated—Butterfly Parade. For my first card, I stamped two sizes and styles of butterflies with distress ink and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I created the focal panel using banner stacklets 2 and two of the Curly Swirlies dies, then layered the butterflies in a whimsical flight. 



Next up, I've created a variation on the same theme and stamped butterflies in a variety of sizes in raspberry fizz ink and highlighted one cut in felt. I love the dotted swirly line in this set and can see myself using it with other stamps and dies. 



And finally, here's a very simple card starting with the fun butterfly trail sentiment and a few butterflies cut from felt and accented with half pearls.




...wishing you a beautiful day...
