One can never have enough butterflies when creating. This 4" x 6" clear photopolymer stamp is designed by Inna Moreva for Pinkfresh Studio. This stamp includes 9 different butterflies to add to your paper crafting projects. This stamp adheres to an acrylic block and can be used with your favorite inks, embossing powders, colored pencils, watercolors, and other crafting mediums (sold separately). This stamp set has a coordinating die set, hot foil plate, and layering stencil set (all sold separately) for a wide variety of crafting options. This stamp set is made in the USA.
I love this set of little butterflies, with their different shapes and stylized patterns, which will lend themselves well to using fanciful colors, sort of like faerie butterflies. (To my eyes, anyway.) If I don't wish to print the whole, connected set at one time, I can simply use Post-It note papers to keep the surrounding butterflies clear of ink, or I could cut them apart, but that can be daunting to some people who might not be so familiar with stamping. To cut the butterfly stamps apart, I would use some sharp scissors and make sure to leave a small amount of the background around each one, then after they were cleaned from use, just stick them back onto the sheeting. I will be trying out the stamps as one whole sheet first, then putting the Post-Its around those which surround the one I choose to print before cutting anything and that's just to get the feel for the stamp, as a whole, and how it prints. I like to play with some of the stamps I get to have fun with trying things out. I've gotten sheets of stamps before that I had to cut apart, so this is the first of the polymer stamps I've gotten as a whole sheet. Interesting. I'm thinking if I just printed the whole sheet together in just black or colored inks and didn't color them in, it might be a good background stamp for larger butterflies.
I haven’t yet used this stamp set but wanted the full complement of dies, stamps, foil plates and stencils. I was a little late seeing this set but found them on Scrapbook.com and was able to buy them all at one time.
