Let’s have some fun with butterflies and Glitz Glitter Gel, shall we?! I pulled out the Petals & Wings Stamp n Stencil along with a whole rainbow of Glitz Glitter Gel to play with and made this happy, summer card!

I wanted to use the Petals & Wings Stamp n Stencil in a different way, so I decided to make a whole background full of dimensional butterflies! And why not throw in a rainbow of pretty, glittery Glitz Glitter Gel to top it all off!

I used the Petals & Wings Stamp n Stencil Die Set to cut out a bunch of butterflies from white cardstock. I used the negative piece of cardstock and some 1.5″ Purple Tape to create a template in my stamping tool so that I could easily stamp all of the butterflies. I share this trick ( which is not my own ) in the video above.

It’s definitely worth a look! It makes lining up and mass-producing stamped images a BREEZE! I just added the Purple Tape to the back of the negative die cut piece and then I could pop in a die-cut, stamp, remove the die-cut, and pop in another. I stamped a whole rainbow of the Petals & Wings butterflies with the Petals & Wings Stamp Set in no time at all!

Once all of my butterflies were stamped it’s time to add the Glitz Glitter Gel! I used a rainbow of Glitz Glitter Gel to match the rainbow of stamped butterflies – Bubblegum, Sweet Mango, Gold, Holiday Pine ( this was a limited edition color, but there are other green Glitz Glitter Gels that are just as fabulous! ), Turquoise Sea, and Wild Lilac. I picked my colors of Glitz Glitter Gels based on the ink colors I used. I wanted to have colors in the same color family that were darker than the ink.

I love the Stamp n Stencil systems! It lets you pretty add details to the stamp sets! I sprayed the back of the Petals & Wings Stencil with Pixie Spray and lined up the body of the butterfly from the stencil with the stamped butterfly and added Glitz Glitter Gel. I did two of each color before wiping off my stencil with a baby wipe and adding the next color of Glitz Glitter Gel. I glitzed up all 12 butterflies and set them aside for about an hour to dry.

Once the butterflies were dry I played around with placement on my card. When I had them arranged how I wanted them to be I added each butterfly to my card using Gina K Designs White Foam Squares. These are my favorite foam squares when I want just a bit of lift and dimension!

I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Petals & Wings Stamp Set onto black cardstock and cut it out with a stitched circle die and added it to the card with a double layer of Gina K Designs White Foam Squares. I trimmed off the excess butterflies hanging off the card and added some black gems.

I hope this glitzy summery card makes you happy and inspires you to use repeated die cuts across your card! See you soon!
