Butterfly Ideas, old school!

I love using butterflies on my cards, I'm not big on embellishments and chunky things, but I do love butterflies!
Once upon a time about two years ago, I had lots of butterfly punches and dies and I never used them, so I sold them. Every once in awhile, I think about buying another one or dozen but reality is I won't use them - too lazy!
This is what I do do, it is really old school  and I really enjoy making them this way!

I have lots of butterfly stamps, this one is by Penny Black and it is a favorite for this project:

I stamp them on white paper: and then color and coat with lineco glue

I heat emboss on designer cardstock:

I just stamp on cardstock:

All of these took an hour to stamp emboss and cut out!

Here is a thank you card I made using two

It is lots of fun and you won't have to purchase anything!  

Thanks for stopping by!

What is linco glue? And what are you using to color them? They look stunning on the card, I want to make some! xoxo Jen

Oh wow, they are gorgeous - I love anything butterfly or moth-ish! I also love the rich colours you've used, they look fabulous and I am off to look up lineco glue - there is so much I don't know about!! The card is stunning and I love the vintage feel and that dear little tag on it. I have to say I like the old-fashioned way of stamping and cutting - I have butterfly punches and dies but don't often use them, if at all - I think Tim often persuades us we need fancy stuff when really we don't!!
Hope you have a good week (what's left of it!),
