Today's Technique is QUICK & EASY using the Butterfly Punch.  I punched the Butterfly 3 times and then adhered DSP behind each Butterfly.  Should we call it and Inlay Technique?  The DSP is This & That Epic Day which is new this year in the 2013/14 Annual Catalog.  Next Week the new Catty goes LIVE!
This Card uses minimal supplies and is lovely. Any word stamps, any punch, any DSP, any neutral card stock!
Stamp Set:  Fabulous Phrases
Ink: Basic Gray
Card Stock: Whisper White, Basic Gray
And More: Butterfly Punch

It's a SPOTLIGHT on Fabulous Florets using the new Designer Series Paper- This and That Epic Day. The Butterflies are captured in a Treat Cup that showcase several patterns from the DSP 12" x 12" pkg. 
Stamp Set: Fabulous Florets
Ink: Basic Black (note to self.... use Black Stazon, Basic Black tends to stay wet and smudge a bit.  Don't look too close... I didn't want to start over even though a few areas have smudges... oh ya, just add a few more butterflies over the smudges!!!!- good thinking!)
Card Stock: Whisper White, Basic Black
And More:  Treat Cup, Butterfly Punch, 1", 1 3/8" & 1 3/4" Circle Punches
Spotlight Technique-  Stamp a line image (flower) in black stazon all over the card stock.  Stamp the same line image (flower) in black stazon on DSP. Punch out circles on the DSP using 1" and 1 3/8" circle punches. Layer on top of White Card Stock.
