Butterflies and silver heat embossing

Welcome and thank you so much for your visit.  Take time to look around and see if any of my projects inspire you!

I am an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator based in the UK, so if you live in Austria, France, Germany, Netherlands or United Kingdom, you are eligible to purchase from me, but regardless of where you are from, I do appreciate your visit to my blog.

Some of the products I have used are available as Last Chance Products – While Supplies last or until 2ndJune 2020.

See below for the specific products included. 

I only recently ordered the Butterfly Beauty dies and what a wonderful set it is!  I will be using this quite often from now on.  The card is a Whisper White Notecard measuring 5” x 3½”, onto this I attached a background in Balmy Blue cardstock cut to 47/8” x 33/8”.  Next, some silver heat embossing.  These sections include an outer square surround from the Shimmer Detailed Laser Cut Specialty Paper and the interior section cut from a Mini Coloured Doily.  Both were cut as required, stamped with Versamark then covered with silver embossing powder before the excess was gently shaken off and heat set. A second stamping of Versamark, powder and heat setting was undertaken to ensure full coverage and a nice slick look. Both items were adhered to the card at this point.  The Terracotta Tile flower in the centre was then cut from another doily and attached using Stampin’ Dimensionals which were cut into small slivers.  The butterflies were then cut from the Butterfly Beauty Dies, five were cut using Basic Black cardstock and the background/outer sections were cut using some left over Best Dressed designer series paper and adhered to the back of each.  Three of them had Stampin’ Dimensionals attached to the rear before being adhered to the silver embossed surround.  The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and was stamped onto Whisper White cardstock in Versamark, covered in silver embossing powder then heat set.  This was cut out using the second to smallest oval in the Stitched Shape Dies.  The two remaining butterflies were attached to the side of this before being adhered to the card.

Thank you for viewing my project today.  If you make a purchase with me this month for £30 or more (excluding postage) in addition to a thank you card and gift, you will also receive a card kit, which will comprise of three cards to assemble yourself, all papers will be pre-cut for you with the card base, envelopes and any die cuts provided, the only item not provided will be adhesive, as I find the preference of this differs greatly between crafters.

If you wish to place an order, make a note of the item numbers and use the ‘Shop Now’ tab above, available 24/7, not forgetting to use the current  Hostess Code  which is PKH4JDUB  if your order is under £150.  Every customer will receive a thank you gift from me, sent separately from your Stampin’ Up order but please  don’t  select the No Contact option at the check out, as I won’t be able to send you your gift the following month.  Besides this you may also receive a few emails from me about your order.  If your order is over £150 you get to choose your own rewards.

See you next time,
