Butterfly Basics

Hello and Welcome to a new week at StampinbyHannah!

This card uses the Butterfly Thinlits dies, from the Spring/Summer Stampin’ Up! catalogue. Isn’t it pretty.
Stampin' Up! UK Butterfly Thinlits dies Butterfly BasicsWhen I first received these dies I had a good old play with them, trying to find the best way to get them to cut, which colours did I prefer, that kind of thing, and this is the card that resulted.

I adore the subtles collection cardstocks for spring, the colours are all just so pretty. Here I have used Soft Sky, Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz.

There are now loads of videos on YouTube showing you some of the best ways to get these dies to cut. I am absolutely no expert on this one! I run them through my slightly tired Big Shot several times, rotating them and moving them across the cutting plates. Once they are cut I stand and poke all the pieces through with my pokey tool (or Stampin’ Up! Paper Piercing Tool), into a Sandwich bag to catch all the little bits. But these Butterflies are worth the effort, they are stunning on a card!
