Hi crafty friends! Lien here with a great technique, two fun cards and a youtube video! Today I'm using my two favorite cover plate dies and the gorgous A Beautiful Day stamp set.

For this card I'm using Simon Hurley's Stamping Foam, which is a great tool to stretch your supplies. If you heat up the foam and press it into a stamp/die/anything textured it creates a stamp. Heat the foam up again and you can start with a clean slate! So I created two stamps for my butterflies from the A Beautiful Day stamp set. I put the butterflies down on my work surface and press the heated up stamp foam on them. If you have a slick surface that's perfect to keep the stamps in place but not necessary since you don't have to worry too much about things shifting around.

I added color to the stamping foam by rubbing some ink cubes over it. You get a better result if you rub on the ink instead of stamping or pressing it on like you would a regular stamp. I spritz some water over it and press it into watercolor cardstock.

To make my cards I die cut two cover panel dies. For the first card I'm using the Brilliance Cover Panel die and for the second I'm using the Folklore Cover Panel die. I stamped a sentiment from the A Beautiful Day stamp set on the Brilliance Cover Panel die and adhered my large butterfly right above that with foam tape.

For my second card I cut a diagonal gap in the Folklore Cover Panel die and added the two sides to my cardbase with foam tape. I added some strips of silver glitter cardstock on both edges and adhered my butterfly on there with foam tape, putting some foliage underneath it. I finished both cards off with some gems and voilà!
