Introducing... Paperbabe Stamps ~ Butterfly Pieridae

Welcome to May's Mini release
Butterfly Pieridae

I loved the idea of layering all the butterfly parts to create either a fun or more realistic butterfly. So each pair of wings are one stamp with the gap for the separate body stamp. You then have the option of using just one side to create different butterfly poses to create flight and movement.
I've tried to demonstrate here how this could work, you can mask either the thinner wing or larger wing to give great dimension. You can stamp just one wing for a side profile butterfly. When tilted the thinner wing against the larger wing looks like the butterfly is flying.

The Details:
  • Butterfly Pieridae Photopolymer Clear set will be available for purchase on Fri 20th May.
  • The set will retail at £9.00
  • Butterfly Pieridae has a total of 27 stamps, There are three wing designs, in three different sizes. They can be layered on top of eachother. The bodies are separate for more stamping possibilities. There are a few mini butterflies great for creating distance. 

I hope my sample below really brings this method of layering and masking together...
Pieridae might seem a funny name but I think they look very close to this type of butterfly if you wanted a reference for colours and markings.

I've fussy cut the main butterfly, added just a hint of glitter to the edges and raised the wings on dimensional adhesive.

I have used all the sizes of butterfly in various poses.

I stamped the solid butterfly wings before lining up the outline wing image. Then positioned and stamped the body.

Now it's time to pop by the following Team blogs and check out their fluttering projects...

Thank you very much for stopping by!!!
Enjoy a wonderfully creative day!

  1. A really beautiful set Kim, it does indeed look like a butterfly from the Pieridae family especially the Orange Tip. Love the way you have separated the wings and the body - makes it so versatile! x
