The second day of the release has reserved us small, but not less amazing Monarchs stamp set that comes with the coordinating Monarchs Die Set and a wonderful Butterflies Stencil Set that is so fun to mix with butterflies stamps or use on its own.

Giveaway alert!! NND is giving away Monarchs stamp sets to a lucky winner so make sure you read all the way to the bottom of this post to see how to win!

My firs card is very simple and easy. I stamped on Neenah Solar White paper, die cut and colored with copic markers all three big butterflies from Monarchs stamp set, using Y00-Y15-YR12-YR07-E08 color combo.

Next I created a green background using Tropical Leaves stencil and Distress inks. To start, I smooched Twisted Citron Oxide and Moved Lawn Distress inks on a clear acetate, spritz it with water and transferred the colors on a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor cardstock since it meant to work with water. I repeated the same process a few times and heat set the colors with my heat tool. Next I mixed a plain white embossing paste with the same shades of Distress inks and added a leaf pattern through the stencil. I let everything air dry well before popping my background on an extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) along with colored butterflies and the matching sentiment.

The second card featured beautiful Butterflies Stencil Set that comes with two layers and allows easily mix and match different colors and mediums. Once again, I started with Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor cardstock and Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Abandoned Coral Distress inks. I taped well the layer #1 from Butterflies Stencil Set and inked with my blending brushes creating an ombré effect. Then I switched to the layer #2 and added more intense colors recreating the intricate pattern on the butterflies. I lift up the stencil and inked the whole background following an ombré effect. I finished with a few tiny shimmer droplets and let the pattern air dry.

Meanwhile I heat embossed the butterflies from Monarchs stamp set on vellum with a fine white embossing powder and die cut them using the coordinating Monarchs Die Set. I also prepared the matching heat embossed sentiment on a strip of a red cardstock.

I popped the colorful background on an extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) with a foam tape for a bit of dimensional look along with the heat embossed sentiment. Next I adhered the vellum butterflies with a tiny glue dots and finished with some clear and white iridescent sequins.
