Coloured Butterflies on Basic Black with a Shimmer Background

Welcome to my blog 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 love this simplicity of this one!  The idea for this came about from when I was die cutting the small butterflies for the Butterflies and Silver Heat Embossing card last week.  After cutting the first butterfly out on a different piece of cardstock, which had other various die cut images previously cut out, I refrained from cutting the remainder after a fleeting thought.  I grabbed a Basic Black left over strip of cardstock which measured 1¾” wide, and cut out the four remaining butterflies I needed, but placed them a little more strategically, in this case, the correct way up and in a general more orderly fashion! At this point, I put the butterflies strip away and carried on with the original project at hand.  Over the weekend I added scrap pieces of retiring In-Colour designer series paper to the back of the strip for the coloured butterflies and found in my stash a stray unused shimmer paper background which I adhered to a Basic Black notecard sized cardbase.  I attached the butterflies strip over the background, leaving space for the sentiment towards the bottom of the card.  This was from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set, stamped in Versamark, covered in white embossing powder and heat set, before being cut into an oval using the Stitched Shape Dies.  To finish, I placed dimensionals on the back of the sentiment before attaching it 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,
