Butterfly Basics is a stamp set that has been around for a while. It is a great stamp set for vintage cards yet it can also be a clean and simple (CAS) card. Buffy is a vintage stamper. She makes these gorgeous cards and when she uses this stamp set, her cards look so much different than mine. One great thing about this stamp set is it comes in Wood Mount, Clear Mount and Photopolymer so whatever your favorite stamp material is, you can get it! It also has matching dies called Butterflies Thinlits.
I really like the sentiment that I used on this card. It makes me think about people and how they change over their lifetime. Awkward young girls may turn into ballerinas. A gangly, klutzy boy turns into an awesome athlete. It is like the ugly duckling story. I love that story!
To make this card I first stamped the fern In Tranquil Tide. I then stamped it again in Wild Wasabi. The other color I used is Island Indigo.
This is beautiful, Susan! It’s so peaceful, and those colors are gorgeous! (I like The Ugly Duckling, tool)
It seems you & Buffy were channeling each other today, with the fern fronds! I love this card, Susan – great colours and layout.
