Floating & Fluttering for Freshly Made Sketches
Today I am playing along in the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge 468. They offer up a sketch idea, and then we as paper crafters create a project inspired by that sketch! Here is the Sketch Idea offered and it will link you back to their blog to see all the other creations created as well.
I decided to create with the new Floating & Fluttering stamp set and coordinating dies. I also pulled in a sample piece of the Fine Art Floral DSP. I wanted something bright but also wanted to show off these fabulous new butterflies we have to offer. Since this set has no sentiments, I also used the new Happy Thoughts stamp set.
Take a look at my Stampin’ Show & Tell video tutorial, and watch as I go through the creative process. This is a lovely 2-step stamping set, where we can stamp the outline image and then stamp the full color of the image with a second stamp. Then see the full tutorial with the supply list below in this post.
So are you inspired by this fun project? I just love the brightness of the colors and the way the pattern in the Fine Arts Floral DSP coordinates with the outline images of the butterfly.

Also stamp the inside panel of your card.
You will use the Garden Green ink again, and stamp behind and around the placement of your Basic Black label, on the front of your card.
Die Cut Layer
Using the Fluttering Dies, die-cut the image from the Basic White cardstock.
Also die-cut a label from the Basic Black cardstock.
Put it All Together
Now just layer your panels onto the front of your card and inside.
I did use dimensionals to pop up the butterfly die image.
