Today’s a little special. It’s a two-fer!  What’s that? Two cards, one video and lots of photos on two great cards you can create with the Butterfly Wishes stamp set.

What makes the Butterfly Wishes set so special? It’s a DistINKtive set. That means, with just one stamping motion, you achieve an image with both highlights and lowlights. Pretty nifty, right? For the first card in our two-fer, let’s tackle the beautiful “Love to Celebrate you” card.

Ok, first of all, those designer series papers are just too beautiful. The Garden Lane DSP is a fabulous monocromatic pack of gorgeous papers. If you love green, this is the paper pack for you.

Do you just love all those layers and texture? I sure do! And that cute little flower. That’s a quick and easy creation using the Medium Daisy Punch. You gotta have that one.

The large branch image from the Butterfly Wishes set, is the perfect one to appreciate the DistINKtive technology. I stamped it in Pear Pizzazz. That’s my accent color choice on this card.

No naked inside of the card this time. There is a gorgeous butterfly that I wanted to add. Stamping it on a mat of Whisper White insured that I didn’t have a mishap on the card base.  And I like the layered look as well. Next up we have a fantastic Birthday card with the Butterfly Wishes set. See the versatility in this one.

I’ve changed DSP packs on this one. This time we’ve got the fabulous Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP. The paper pack has mocaic tile designs and floral imagery with shiney accents. All I know is, it’s YUMMY!

This time I stamped the butterfly that coordinates with our Butterfly Duet punch. One of the best parts of that is we have an additional set that coordinates. The Butterfly Gala set is filled with all sorts of butterfly images and fantastic greetings.

I even stamped the sweet little flowers from the Butterfly Wishes set on the sentiment. I think it gives the greeting so much more interest and depth. I’ve even filmed a video for you, containing both card designs.
