Silhouette stamps and dies from Stamps By Me

Hello crafters xx

Hope your all of ok and been having lots of crafty fun

I'm very excited to be sharing the first of my samples for the brand new Silhouette stamps and dies collection from Stamps By Me  coming to c&c next Wednesday

I have to say this whole collection is probably one of my all time favourites. I love flowers/grasses as silhouettes, and to be able to extend my makes with dies is just the best lol

For these samples I have used:
Wildflowers 1,4
Butterfly die
Natural Elements die
Kind Thoughts 2 dies
Leaf 1 die
Butterfly lamination stamp set
Pixie Powders
Lustre Luxe
Gilding Wax
Embossing powder
Distress Oxides
Distress Inks

Used Wildflower 1,4 stamp sets
The inner die from the Butterfly die set was used to partially cut out this gorgeous butterfly.
Pixie Powders, on a seperate piece of card,  was adhered behind the aperture,  making sure only the body of the Butterfly was adhered to it, so the wings could be lifted
The flowers were stamped in Cracked Pistachio and Worn Lipstick DO and the sentiment stamped in Deep Lagoon versafine

3 leaves were cut out using Leaf 1 die and covered in Pebeo Gilding Waxes
The Butterfly body was cut out, using the Butterfly outline die, from a background made from Pixie Powders.
The detailed die cut was covered in gold Gilding Wax and adhered just along its body to enable the wings to be lifted
The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed in gold

I made some backgrounds using Pixie powders then cut out 2 bodies using the outline Butterfly die
2 of the detailed Butterfly dies were cut out in white then adhered to the bodies, ensuring wings can be lifted once dry
The third butterfly is the Butterfly lamination stamp. This was stamped on another Pixie Powder background, then cut out
These were adhered to a panel which was matted onto blue card
The flowers were stamped in Faded Jeans and Peacock Feathers DO so they peeked out from behind panel, once adhered
Sentiment was stamped in Deep Lagoon versafine

A square of Pixie Powder background was adhered to gold mirri then gold thread was wrapped around it
The Cherish sentiment is from the Kind Thoughts 2 die collection. It was cut out from white card and coloured in with gold Lustre Luxe
The Feathers (or leaves), are from the Natural Elements die set. These were also cut from white card and coloured in with Lustre Luxe's.  The Feathers were tied with some of the gold thread

I hope you have enjoyed looking through today's post and I hope you love these dies and stamps as much as I do.

Many thanks for taking the time to look
