Today’s project and video is a little different. I have a cute Mini Treat Bag for you. It’s using the gorgeous Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper. I also have a couple of other versions in this design.
You can check the video below and I have the measurements further down so you can refer back to it.
Here is the Mini Treat Bag.
Notice the bottom edge? I diecut the “hatch” type die on it. Whether you stamp or diecut on this you will need to do this before you assemble the bag.
I added a detailed Diecut butterfly from the Brilliant Wings Dies set cut in Mint Macaron. I diecut a stitched circle with the Stitched Shapes Die between the butterfly and bag to help separate the 2 so the butterfly doesn’t get lost on the bag.
Here is the video. If you receive this post by email the video may not show so be sure to head to my blog to catch the video or heat to Youtube.
I made 2 other versions too. A sweet one with the Dandy Garden Suite. It’s a great way to use the dandelion paper. Also one with the Whale of A Time Designer Series Paper.

This is one of the cards we made in today’s Butterfly Brilliance class.
This card really showcases many of the products in the Butterfly Brilliance Collection. The gorgeous Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper and the details in the Butterfly Wings dies. You can see on the white card the embossed “hatching” lines created with one of the dies and the small white square has the “dots” background. They create really cool effects for your projects.
Have you got any of these products yet? They are so lovely. I’m sure you have butterfly dies BUT have you got those cool embossed type dies?

How cool are these large butterflies in the Butterfly Brilliance Stamp?? And I say Stamp (singular) as this is one big stamp.
Just a tip: It’s a good idea to use the Stamparatus for this big beauty. It’s great to be able to re-stamp if it doesn’t work well the first time. And it is so much easier to handle as it is quite large.
For this card I stamped the butterflies on white card using the Stamparatus and then coloured it with the Melon Mambo Stampin’ Blends. You can make your own background paper!
The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and the dies are from the Stitched So Sweetly dies.
Check the embossing on the black sentiment mat. It has these little “hatched” lines that you can emboss in to your card. This is with one of the Dies in the Butterfly Wings Dies set. I added some Magenta Madness ribbon which still tones in well.
You can’t see on the black card mat behind the butterflies but I embossed the piece with the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder.
The Butterfly Brilliance is an early release bundle. They will continue on in the new upcoming catalogue.
The Papers that you can get with this release are only for a limited time so be sure to grab those VERY SOON.They are beautiful.

Today’s Friday Flicks is a Fun Fold creating a Single Step card. I couldn’t help but use the new Butterfly Brilliance bundle – Oh! and the gorgeous Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper.
I have made this fold before quite some time ago. It is still re-pinned so many times on Pinterest and many people head back to my blog to see it. I thought it would be good to freshen it up. You can see the original card -> HERE.
Check out the card. It is a bit hard to capture it in photos. It folds up easily to mail too.
I have the measurements for the card and all the different pieces further below. They are available in Metric and Imperial.
Here is the video which is now on Youtube. (Have you subscribed to my channel yet?)

Be sure to grab that Butterfly Bijou paper. This paper is only for a limited time.
It’s Wednesday’s WOW! #119. Today let’s have a close look at this newButterfly Brilliance release. You might have seen these products around but I thought we would check out some of the particular unique features of it.
The new Butterfly Brilliance is a new collection of products released early. You might say you have enough butterflies …but really do you have such butterflies as pretty as these? And that paper! That on it’s own is just so gorgeous.
While the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle (stamps and dies) you will see in the new catalogue the gorgeous papers won’t be available. They are limited release. 😦 That’s sad as they are so pretty and the dies cut out some of the butterflies on this paper.
What do you do if you want all the butterflies? The solution is the Butterfly Brilliance Collection.$125 AUD Only available while supplies last.
The Butterfly Brilliance Collection includes: – * Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp Set – * Brilliant Wings Dies – Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2) Designer Series Paper – Natural Touch Specialty Paper
*The stamp set and Dies are available as a Bundle.
The Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper is available in 6″x6″ papers and there are 8 sheets of 6 different designs. Oh so beautiful! One side has the butterfly prints and the other has a more plain pattern OR … a beautiful watercolour wash.
And the colours! They are Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, Mango Melody, Mint Macaron, Misty Moonlight, Poppy Parade, So Saffron. So pretty together.
But check this out! The Brilliant Wings Die cuts the butterflies on some of the Butterfly Bijou DSP. No fussy cutting these beauties.
The other paper in this collection is the Natural Touch Specialty Paper. The pale woodgrain is versatile enough for any project and any time of year and will give a “textured” effect. Emboss it, use it with dies and you can even colour it with inks. There are only available while supplies last too.
You receive 2 sheets at 12″x12″ size. (30.5cm x 30.5cm). They both have a different pattern.
Now let’s talk a bit more about the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle.
BUTTERFLY BRILLIANCE CLING STAMP SET The images are so detailed.
Did you know that these butterflies are modelled after butterfly species from around the world?? Including the Clouded Yellow (Europe), Black Veined White (Europe & Asia), Coppers (New Zealand), Swallowtail (North America), Blue Copper (North America), and Painted Lady (Australia). How cool!
The butterflies are a single stamp so you can create a background or diecut them individually. You will need a Block F to use them. I would suggest using the Stamparatus to stamp them as it is so big but also if it doesn’t stamp as well as you would like it is very easy to restamp.
BRILLIANT WINGS DIES I mentioned above how you can diecut the paper. These dies cut the stamped butterflies also so you have individual butterflies. Why not layer them for a fun effect!
You might wonder what those funny little pieces in the dies do. Check them out.
They emboss the card or diecut a “brick” effect or a “splatter”.
So now you just want to go grab them right??
