Butterfly Birthday

Watercolor Stamped Birthday Butterflies 005

I am so excited…today the mailman brought me some stamps from the first ever release from Happy Little Stampers! Yes, there’s a new stamp company in town and get a load to this amazing Butterfly Birthday set! I always think of my friend Dawn when I see a butterfly – as she really loves them! Do you have a stamp image that reminds you of somebody, or is it just me? Tell me in the Comments below!

This Butterfly Birthday set has three very different bold butterflies that will definitely give you loads of ideas and a good variety of cards – just what you want from a stamp set. Even better – there are three great sayings that are the perfect size and in a handwritten print. It’s the perfect compliment, I just love it when there are greetings mixed in with great images.

Now, you may think I’m biased, because I’m on the design team for the Christmas Challenge, but I purchased these myself, and let me tell you – the quality is there and I’m overjoyed with the design and size of each. Kylie will get these right out to you, they’re well priced and she ships internationally quite reasonably. I can’t wait to use the Mixed Christmas Sentiments set on my next challenge card – it’s always great when a set uses different fonts. Love that kind of variety.

So if you haven’t checked them out yet…be sure to do so – and one of the many challenges over at Happy Little Stampers – there is definitely something for everyone!

I watercolor stamped this card  using water along with the following distress inks – Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Peeled Paint, Seedless Preserves and Soot Black. I did a little light wet on wet watercoloring for the background.  Stay tuned for a video of this technique card in the upcoming weeks!
