Hi there, I’m sharing another project with similar features to my entry for Global Design Project Challenge today.
This time I used the little butterfly stamp in Grateful Bunch Stamp Set to show you how I make layered vellum butterflies. I think these are very simple and effective embellishments for your paper craft projects . I hope you like them!
I used 1″ circle punch + 1-3/ 4 circle scallop punch by Sampin’ Up! sorry this one is retired now but you can use instead the new Layering Circles Framelits Dies by Stampin’ Up! amazing value pack that includes 8 circles dies and 8 scalloped circles dies ( each kind from 1″ to 3″ inches) so you get pretty much all the standard sizes required for card making.

I stamped the butterflies on watercolor paper and on vellum with water based Stampin ‘ Up! inks. for better results please allow the ink to dry on the vellum for a while (over 5 minutes).
Those stamped on vellum were hand cut using scissors then I overlaid them one on top of each other and using my sewing machine I apply a few stitches in the center of their wings.
Glue or glue dots can also be used to assemble this butterflies. I just like the way the paper folds over the stitches so I prefer to sew them, it makes a pretty butterfly or wings.
TIP: to stamp on vellum or glossy surfaces, including glass, I use Jet Black Stazon ink as it dries fast and produce a more delicate, crisp and defined images and fonts. With slow drying inks the minimum wobble of the stamp on the card stock will spoil your work.
Archival inks are a bit thicker so the fonts will look a bit bold as well.
- Watercolour paper, vellum
- Stampin Up inks and Stampin’ Up craft ink (whisper white ink).
- Embellishment: metallic Silver Thread. 1/8 gold ribbon.
