Butterflies, butterflies and more butterflies

Hi everyone

I hope everyone is having a good weekend.

Just a quick post today.  I spent a few hours this morning tatting in the garden a bit.  My lovely friend Rafael has just given me a sack of raw sheeps wool. Fantastic!!  Not sure what I will do with it but I have some ideas for felting.  I have just got to clean it now. If anyone has any experience in cleaning wool I would love to hear from you.

Anyway down to card making and crafting.

I would like to share some cards I made using the butterfly stamps from Chocolate Baroque’s new Briar Rose Butterfly and Harebell Butterfly sets.  Gorgeous sets these.

FloLangley 047ATJuneFor the first card I used one of Lesley Wharton’s printable vintage tags.

FloLangley 018ATJuneFor these two cards I stamped onto glossy card.  I ink the stamp and spritzed it with water to give a mottled effect in the background and then stamped over the first stamping using the same stamp with just ink.

FloLangley 023ATJuneIf you are new to stamping these would be a great set to start off with.   A little bit of everything to cover every occasion.  If you are a stamp addict like me then these would be a super addition to your collection.  You can never have too many butterflies.

Thank you to everyone for leaving such lovely comments on my last post.  They are very much appreciated.

That’s all from me to day.

Happy Stamping

  1. The first one is my fave too such beautiful rich colours and I like the distressed edges. No idea about cleaning wool cool wash in the washing machine is all I know but don’t think this is right for your wool.



  2. Gorgeous cards! I found you on CB’s pinterest, you are SO talented! I tried to find the hexagonal stencil you used in your first card, but I can’t! I always come across the one that allows you to stamp the inside shape, not just the outside borders, I’d like to recreate the same aerial structure. can you help me please? thank you!
