I created this Butterflies Thinlet Dies Card several years ago. It is still a favorite video on my YouTube Channel so I thought I would share it again on my blog.
I was inspired to create this card after attending a local stamping event. The demonstration was by another company and she used different supplies but my brain went into motion knowing I could use my own supplies to create the same type of card!
Enjoy the video!
Simply by changing the colors and doing more stamping on the front I made a ton of these cards!

Butterflies Thinlet Dies Card Instructions:
TIP: Use Wax paper between
your thinlet and the card stock to help release the card stock from the thinlet. Also if you will run it back and forth thru the Big Shot three times that helps too.
Cut one butterfly out using the butterfly thinlet using black scrap of card stock
Next lay butterfly thinlet on the Shimmery White card stock where you want it, I like it at an angle like it is flying.
Use the Paper Piercing tool to poke out the cutouts on the butterfly
Stamp fern images across the bottom
Run the Shimmery White card stock thru the Spring Flowers Embossing folder
Attach Shimmery White layer to the Calypso Coral base with Multipurpose glue
Lay black butterfly on silicon mat and using Multipurpose glue place random glue dots all over the back of the butterfly
Attach black butterfly in the cutout butterfly on the card
Use Multipurpose glue only on the body portion of the Shimmery White butterfly and lay that on top of the black butterfly, tap it down with the other end of your paper piercing tool.
Using one of the long strips of rhinestones lay that on the body portion, cut off access and put back on the
Stamp any sentiment on the inside of the card
Why do you create what you do?
I love to inspire people. And I can do that by sharing what I love! I love to teach new techniques and how to use our products so that they fall in love with Stampin’ Up! too!
How does your creative process work?
I love to look at the samples in the catalogs. Then I take what I have and start. My end project looks nothing like the inspiration. But that way I can call it mine!
I would love for you to leave a comment about how you are inspired!
