I am playing along Happy Little Stamper's July CAS Challenge - Kissing.
There are several kissing method, die cut kissing, embossing folder kissing, and stamps kissing. You could find tutorial on HLS's challenge blog.
For my card today I used the die cut kissing technique. I used the solid butterfly from the Hero Arts Color Layering Butterfly set and the Hero Arts Butterfly Fancy Die.
Let's take a look of my finished card.
So to create the pattern on my butterfly. I first ink up the solid stamp with ink.
Next I stamp on white card stock, stamp the body of the butterfly and trim. I made a few using different colours.
Here's a close up.
The Fancy Butterfly die is quite versatile, you use it as it, use it as stencil, use it as faux embossing, use it in the kissing technique. Check out some beautiful examples Here, Here, Here, Here, and Here on the a2z Scrapbooking Supplies Challenge Blog. You could also do a search on Color Layering Butterflies and it will list all the posts that use the color layering set.
