Butterfly Basics Collage and FINAL Day for May Card Kits


I think my favorite stamp set in the 2015 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog would have to be Butterfly Basics with the coordinating Butterflies Thinlits Dies.  I love all of the collage-type stamps that you can work with in this versatile stamp set.  I’ve used 5 of the 11 stamps in this card, and you could make a totally different looking card using the other 6 stamps.  And good news – it’s available in all three stamp types – wood, clear mount or photopolymer – so that you can choose just the one you want.

  • Of course, I had to add a few splatters from Gorgeous Grunge stamp set!  If you don’t have this stamp set yet, I’m not sure how you’re able to make cards!
  • My color scheme is Blackberry Bliss, Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral and Very Vanilla, with a touch of Sahara Sand.
  • The Sahara Sand 7/8″ Lace Trim is a must for your vintage cards!  It also works perfectly with wedding.  Just apply a line of Fast Fuse Adhesive where you want your lace to be and stick the lace into the adhesive, gathering it along the way.
  • A pretty row of Pearls accents the butterfly’s body.
  • There are several things I’ve used on my card that will soon retire – Window Framelits, Basic Hodgepodge Clips and Blackberry Bliss Ribbon.
  • I love the coordination of the Butterflies Thinlits with the stamped image from the Butterfly Basics stamp set.  But there are also two very intricate butterflies in two different sizes that make the Thinlits set a must!


  • Since the Blackberry Bliss cardstock is so dark, I lined the inside with Very Vanilla cardstock that was stamped on the corner for a bit of fun coordination.

You can’t go wrong with this beautiful stamp set and thinlit combination!
