Live Life Now | Butterfly Stamps | Stencils

Hello there! We have Lisa Taggart here on the blog today with 2 stunning cards featuring the inky butterfly stamp from our ‘Live Life Now’ set with 2 of our butterfly stencils on a gorgeous background…


For today’s project I’ve made a duo of cards using both stencils and stamps from Visible Image including some of my personal favourites. I’ve also had a little fun using one of the new large rectangle gel press shapes from Ranger.

I used the following stamps and stencils:

‘The Ripple Effect’ background stamp set was also used but I’ve since learned that it may be retired. It’s never too late to bring it back Mark! Hopefully many of you will already have this old favourite but if not any of the other background stamp sets would work.



The steps:


To create the background I began by brayering lilac pigment ink on to the Gel press plate. On top of this I lightly sprinkled different colours of brusho powders pre mixed with water using a fan brush. I then pulled a print on to white card.





To enhance this a little further I used the entwined butterflies and count me in stencils along with iridescent gold acrylic paint to create subtle interest on top. The effects of this can be seen on the final project depending on the angle of the light.







I then used the large butterfly stencil, the background stamp set, ‘Live life now’ set and coloured ink to build up the layers.







I divided the print into two before adding the final stamped layer using black ink. I also added gold splatters and the sentiment.

Entwined Butterflies | Stencil

Good Evening, we have the very fabulous Ericka Strange here to inspire you this evening with a beautiful card featuring our entwined butterflies stencil with a gorgeous sentiment…


Happy Monday! Its been a little gloomy here lately so I thought I’d brighten things up in the craft room with this Visible Image Entwined Butterflies stencil and Distress Oxides.



I love Distress Oxide blending on Bristol Smooth paper because it is so easy to get a nicely blended background. For this quick card I used Distress Oxide in Squeezed Lemonade, Lucky Clover, Peacock Feathers, and Wilted Violet.

Once the blending was done, I let it dry a bit so that I could heat embossed my sentiment without it sticking all over. I love this So Much Stronger Sentiment set from Visible Image and the fonts are so pretty.

I stamped the sentiment in Versafine ink and heat embossed it. To finish the card I used some Black Nuvo Drops.

Have a wonderful day and I hope you have a chance to make some sunshine!
