If you like butterflies, you’re going to love the Butterfly Wishes stamp set.  This is one of the distinctive stamps that gives the appearance of 3D especially with the larger stamps in the set.  What’s also nice about this set is, it coordinates with the Butterfly Duet Punch.  I didn’t need to use the punch for this card, but I definitely will be using it on other cards  I make with this stamp set.   The punch will cut out the other large butterfly in the set along with the small butterfly.  

I chose basic black for the base and added a layer of Pool Party. I stamped with images and sentiments with tuxedo memento black ink onto a layer of whisper white cardstock.    Stampin’ blends and watercolor markers were used to color the images and jazzed up the butterflies with Wink of Stella.

The watercolor markers in Soft Suede, Petal Pink and Pear Pizzazz were used on the branch/ flowers, and the butterflies were colored with the dark pool party and dark petal pink stampin’ blends.

The sentiment on the inside is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set, and the butterfly was stamped/colored the same as the ones on the front of the card.


  • Basic Black card Base – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″
  • Pool Party Layers  – 4″ xs 5 1/4″  
  • Whisper White Layers – 3 3/4″ x 5″

My cards usually involve die cutting or punching out images, and it’s very seldom that I do a card with all stamping and you know what…I like it.  You don’t need to die cut or punch out images all the time, although it is nice to pop up images, but every now and again, its fun to just stamp and color. I’m happy with the way this card turned out, and I hope you like it too.
