I love butterflies but don't have a good die or punch. Can you tell me which ones are favorites?

thank you

I love Martha Stewart's Monarch Punch and also spellbinders' butterfly die. I am a butterfly lover too! The Donna Salazar's are on my radar~

Martha Stewart, as usual, has some lovely ones. If you're looking for just a basic shape without a lot of detail, the Sizzix Butterfly and Dragonfly die is nice.

Ditto on the Martha Stewart Monarch butterfly stamp...
I "smooch" them, "stickle" them, and "bling" them!

I have the sizzlet butterfly die but don't use it much, I usually go use the Martha Stewart monarch and one of her small ones

They are aren't they? And they carry dies from some other companies that I haven't seen anywhere else. I see that the name of the store was scrubbed, but if anyone else is interested shoot me a pm and I will send a link. I have already pm'd Holly. I hope she checks her pm's!

Sorry Megan. I didn't think there would be a problem with the way I had it listed. I've seen other sites listed the same way so I thought it was ok that way.

I love the Spellbinders, but my very favorites have to be Cheery Lynn Design and Marianne Design! Check out the Cheery Lynn Faerie Queen. They are so fragile, they remind me of filigree!

To some degree it depends on which size you want. For the smaller size, as many have said, the Martha Stewart punch is nice. Its also quick to use and easy to find both online and in box stores. For larger intricate ones, I have the Cheery Lynn Design dies, of course I have only seen them at scrapping shows or online.

I like the newer one from Stampin Up. I have the old one but I think I need to upgrade to the new one!!!! I don't do a lot of butterflies since I have boys. Some of the dies listed here are beautiful but I know I wouldn't get enough use out of them though.

I have the Cheery Lynn designs one with the extra set of wings....I got it at my LSS...
I used to have the Sizzix butterly/dragonfly one and never used it so I sold it in a garage sale...

I am glad you asked this question as I am huge fan of butterflies as well and use them often. Although I only have a tiny butterfly punch from CM. I am definitely going to be upgrading in the near future. I have been looking for a good butterfly stamp but haven't found one yet. Does anybody know of a good butterfly stamp?
