Butterfly Love you

Remember that Lotus Blossom stamp set from Sale-A-Bration?  Remember the cool little tabs it had to help you align the images easily when you stamped them?  Well, have I got news for you!  The new Floral Wings Hostess stamp set has those same little tabs.  It makes it absolutely a breeze to stamp the flowers and leaves within the butterfly.  You have got to try it!

The vine from the Floral Wings stamp set is actually a bit curvy but the beauty of photopolymer stamps is you can change the orientation of some of them.  I straightened out the vine to eliminate the curves to make a picture frame for my Lost Lagoon butterfly.  This one is all stamping and a way to showcase the challenge colors with just a bit of embellishment with the rhinestones.  I love how it turned out.  I even managed to use all of the colors from the challenge.

Lydia Fiedler has a great video on how she uses the Floral Wings stamp set.  It's exactly how I stamped my images and it was so easy.  Just click on her name to watch her video.  Thanks, Lydia!
