I love the new Backyard Basics Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! It reminds me of the recently retired Nature Walk stamp set. As soon as I saw it in the 2013-2014 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog I knew I had to have it! The 6 piece Backyard Basics Stamp Set is available in wood mount and clear mount AND it coordinates with the new Backyard Basics Framelits Dies for the Big Shot. Oh and before I forget you can get the Backyard Basics stamp set and Framelits in a bundle saving you 15% (click here for the wood mount bundle and clear mount bundle)!
I love this stamp set so much that I designed 1 of my Convention swap cards using it. I used the butterfly image from the Backyard Basics Stamp Set and I cut out the bottom butterfly with the Backyard Basics Framelits Dies. That butterfly is attached to the card base with a Stampin’ Dimensional. The middle butterfly is 2 toned! I used a sponge dauber to ink up the stamp. The top is Night of Navy and the bottom is Marina Mist. Using the stamp-a-ma-jig made lining up the butterflies super easy!
I’m guessing the Backyard Basics Stamp Set is a popular set as I received several swap cards at the Stampin’ Up! Convention featuring it. I have 3 of them to share with you. Unfortunately I do not know who the card designers are to give them credit.
The first swap card uses the butterfly and
the flower cluster. So pretty! They die cut 2 flower clusters and layered them on the card base using Stampin' Dimensionals.
The next card only uses the tulip image. I love the group of 3 flowers in classic red! Tulips are 1 of my most favorite flowers! How about you?
The last card uses the bird, bee, and butterfly. I love how the designer used the circle punch to offset die cut the bee and butterfly but then used the coordinating framelit for the bird. Love it!
