Creating a Stamped Doily Video

Update:  Stately Flowers 8 is out of stock!  I am of course thrilled there has been such a positive response to it and the new videos, but I apologize we don't have it currently for you to add to the cart.  Please keep it on your wishlist as we will be getting more added to the store in *just a few weeks*. :)  I will go through my stamp catalog and suggest some other sets I've included butterfly images in that will work well with this technique in the meantime.   Thanks for your patience!

Today I am using both butterflies from Stately Flowers 8 to create a stamped doily.  This video shows a simple trick for getting a symmetrical design on your card.  This doily design is wonderful for framing up a sentiment of a stamped image.  Substitute a square or octagon die/template to create pendants rather than a "round" doily shapes.


Supplies Used: Stately Flowers 8
Gina K. Black Onyx premium dye and White pigment ink
Pure Luxury Kraft cardstock
something round to use a guide. Approximately 2 1/4"
Optional: Spellbinder dies (Standard Circles and Beaded circles)

Here is the variation I also showed centering some layered die cuts inside.


The large and small butterflies in my Stately Flowers 4 would also work well for this technique and design.  Stately Flowers 4 is a clear set and has some gorgeous florals for spring and summer!
Have a terrific weekend!  Enjoy shopping the new release for your crafting products!  I will be busy putting together another video for you for Monday! :)
