Beyond In Color Butterflies

We have a fun theme at Global Design Project this week: “Winged Things.” I thought the butterflies, from the Paper Pumpkin Thanks & Beyond Dies, would be perfect. I began by cutting the butterflies from 2024-2026 In Color 6″ X 6″ Designer Paper in three colors: Pretty In Pink, Peach Pie, and Petunia Pop.

Beyond Butterflies


The background is Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″, glued to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Prior to gluing, I stamped the layer, with the same three colors as the butterflies, with cloud stamps from Under The Moon Stamp Set. Then, I added some black dots, created by flicking with a Stampin’ Blend.

The sentiment is from the Thoughtful Expressions Stamp Set. I stamped it in Memento Black Ink, Used a Spotlight On Nature Die for cutting, and attached it with Dimensionals.


After gluing the butterflies in place, I embellished them with Rainbow Self Adhesive Dots in matching colors.
