Butterfly Collage

Hello fellow stampers!

I’m loving this stamp called Butterfly Collage with Text.  When I saw this stamp I wanted a distressed look and wouldn’t you know that Jennifer McGuire came out with a video that fit the bill.

My sentiment is called Always be There.


  • Using Yupo paper spread some rubbing alcohol over your background
  • Drip Alcohol Inks on top of the Yupo paper, as well as Blending Solution, and blow with a straw.  Repeat until your Yupo paper is covered.
  • Let dry completely, or dry with you heat gun
  • Once dry, generously rub your embossing buddy all over your Yupo paper
  • With your VersaMark pad stamp out your image and press firmly onto Yupo paper.  If you are using a Misti, then repeat by inking up your stamp with VersaMark and stamping out your image for a second time
  • Heat emboss with clear embossing powder
  • Lay your Yupo paper onto the die cut machine.
  • With a spray mist bottle filled with rubbing alcohol, generously spray your embossed image.
  • Lay a piece of cardstock over the Yupo paper and run through your die cut/embossing machine.
  • Pull the cardstock off the Yupo paper and once dry, cut down to size.
  • Surround your Yupo paper with one or two pieces of cardstock.
  • Embellish as you would like.  Here I used Anything is Possible, a new April release
