Welcome and thank you so much for your visit. Take time to look around and see if any of my projects inspire you!
If you wish to purchase any of the products I have used, 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.
It’s nearly a week since I last produced a Stampin’ Up! project and I will admit that during that time I did use some non SU products to make some Father’s Day cards as sometimes, this just cannot be avoided. So on with today’s project.
To begin, I created an inky background using Rococo Rose, Balmy Blue and Highland Heather ink, which was applied to Whisper White cardstock using a brayer.
After this, I spritzed a little water over the top and left it to dry. Using the Butterfly Beauty Dies, I cut both large images from Whisper White cardstock and layered them on top of each other. Using a piece of Forever Greenery designer series paper, I die cut the butterfly image, discarding all the left over small pieces, as I needed the large negative space. Using the inky background, I attached the Forever Greenery DSP onto it, then adhered the large die cut butterfly image into the negative space. On a scrap of Basic Black cardstock, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment in white embossing powder before using the smallest circle from the Stitched Shape Dies. To finish, all the elements were adhered onto a card base made from Whisper White Thick cardstock.

How to Purchase:
If you wish to place an order, click on the item and the link will take you direct to the Stampin’ Up! store, alternatively, make a note of the item number(s) and use the ‘Shop Now’ tab above. Both methods require the next steps: On the next screen, at the top left hand side on the blue bar, there are three horizontal lines – click on the lines. A column will then appear where you will need to select your country (only if the one shown is incorrect) and underneath it reads ‘Find a Demonstrator’. Click this option and you will then need to select ‘Find a Demonstrator by name’. Insert my name (Angela Hicken) and click search. My details will then appear and you will need click ‘select’. (If you click the three lines on the blue bar again, this will confirm that you are now shopping with me). After selecting your items, insert the Host Code where prompted, which is 9XJE2ZJA during the month of June, but only if your order is under £150. (If your order is over £150 you will get to choose your own rewards). Every customer will receive a thank you goody package the following month, sent separately from your Stampin’ Up order. If the contact/no contact option is shown, please don’t select ‘No Contact’, as I won’t be able to send you anything!
If you make a purchase with me this month for £30 or more (excluding postage) in addition to the goody package, 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 bases, 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.
Thank you for viewing my project today – I hope you will visit again soon!
