Tie Dye Butterfly and the Direct to Stamp Brush Technique


I’m a huge tie dye fan (I even had a tie dye clothing shop for awhile) so this technique makes me extra happy. Blending Brushes allow for a spectrum of colors to come together, like on this card featuring the Butterfly Brilliance stamps and Butterfly Bijou DSP, and of course the coordinating Brilliant Wings Dies.

This card is one of the 4 that I created for LovenStamps Monthly Tutorials in March. Want to get the PDF tutorials for all 4 projects? Simple – just place any size order in my online store during the month of March and watch for your tutorials to arrive in your email inbox. Would you rather get all the card pieces (including the sold out DSP) to make two butterfly cards? Then you’ll want to order at least $50 in order to earn my customer thank you Card Kits “To Go” for March.

Note that the butterfly paper has sold out (while supplies last goes quickly sometimes!) but fortunately all my projects are still possible using the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set. In place of the printed paper, you’ll want to stamp your own butterflies. You’re going to love the way these pretty images turn out.


The background paper on this card can be recreated with the Blending Brushes – just use the direct-to-stamp technique as a direct-to-paper technique! Add some burnished backgrounds with the Rococo Rose and Mint Macaron inks.

Can’t find the Blending Brushes in my online store? Don’t worry – they’ll be back soon, likely around the first week of April. Shipping times and customs have been slammed pretty hard for all industries this spring, and Stampin’ Up! is no exception. But the good news is that these fabulous high-quality (the best!!) brushes WILL be back. Just keep them on your Wish List and add them to your next order after they’re back in stock.

Ready to see the video tutorial? For a fun bonus, I’ll talk about how to get over the ‘creative hump’ between coming up with ideas and actually making a project.
