Senior Design Team Challenge: Butterfly Kisses Revisited

Hello everyone!  It is one of my favorite times of the month once again!  The Senior Design Team Challenge where my gals get to revisit a fabulous previously released stamp set!  This month you are in for a special treat because we are taking another look at Butterfly Kisses!  


This set was one of the first ones we released and I bet many of you have this in your collection!  It has wonderful modern-clean lines and fresh interpretations of the classic butterfly.  One of the great things about this set is that it can be used in 2-step stamping applications or simple single impressions.  Making it totally versatile in achieving SO many looks and styles!

Here are a few of my favorite projects from the original countdown I did back in March of 2007!

I love the color scheme on this project, and what can I say, I've always had a thing for paisley too!  One of the fun techniques I did was punch out holes from the pattern stamped on the bottom of the card and layer turquoise cardstock behind it.  Those bright pops of color shining through are SO textural and fun!

On this project I used Pearl-ex…all of the shimmer and shine is hard to capture in a photo but you can see glints of it here and there.  The butterfly demonstrates one of my favorite looks with the set, overlapping the dotted stamp over the solid butterfly image.  The way all the dots fade out from the center is just so pretty and eye-catching!  The butterfly "trail" was created by piercing holes along a pencil-drawn line which was later erased.

Now how about some new projects from the gals who do it best!

If you want to see even MORE great projects, be sure to visit the old InkPad gallery HERE from years ago that features our designers work with the set from 2007!  I popped over there as I was preparing this post and it was SO fun to look back!

I hope you enjoyed this little walk down memory lane!  I know I did!  And I hope we have left you with some inspiration that you can take away with you and apply to a beautiful project or two yourself today!  Thanks for stopping by!!!

P.S. We had previously announced that we would be revealing the 2010 Anniversary set today, April 1st.  Due to some timing issues with getting the set into the Design Tram's hands, the reveal has been pushed up to April 20th.  With all of the release festivities kicking off in just a few short days, the 20th will be here in a blink of an eye, so don't fret!  The anniversary sets will begin shipping out with the May release!  It's a beauty of a set and I can hardly wait to share with you!  Thanks for your patience!

    I believe that Butterfly Kisses was the very
    first PTI stamp set that I purchased. Doesn’t
    seem possible that it was 2007….although,
    I’ve made quite a collection of PTI stamps
    since then! Butterflies are a favorite of mine
    and I love this set….still! Beautiful work
    by the Senior DT. Looking forward to this
    month’s sneak peeks and reveals.

    Amazing projects!!! Loved visiting all projects from the ladies! They are so pretty and those stamps are as well. I love this revisiting of the ‘older stamps’!
    Hugs, Wendy

    Love your craft room. Some great tips. Thanks so much for the labels. I only had some Avery 5660 labels, but they were 3 X 10 and worked pretty well. Depending on the page, the last 2- 4 rows are pretty close to the top, but they all made it onto a label. Thank you so much for saving me all that work. The CD envelopes are a great idea.

    Great set. I am newish to PTI, and awaiting this set. I hope that you notice how often those butterflies get cut out, and will consider a die for this set!

    Beautiful and stunning projects! I love this butterfly set and it’s so much fun to see these “older” sets used with all the “new” dies, inks, felts, buttons and patterned papers that came out in the years after.

    That’s a lovely stamp set and so girly! Anyone could perfectly make a beautiful card using those stamps.

    OK, I give. Nicole, how did you accomplish the two-toned paisley butterfly. I’ve been racking my brain and I just can’t figure it out. Awesome work by the way.

    Never mind, I figured it out. Looks so complicated, but it’s simple if you have the right tools. Love this look!!!

    A ‘Butterfly Wishes’ card by Lauren Meeder is what first brought me to PTI – it is so nice to see this beautiful set revisited and shown a little love.
