More Butterfly Basics


Two more cards that I have made recently using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set.
They are very similar colours as you can see. I inked up some Whisper White Card Stock, with Crumb Cake Ink, that I had die cut using the Hexagon Hive Framelit.
The sentiment is from the Petite Pairs Stamp Set.


A Crumb Cake Base this time with a touch of Champagne Glimmer Paper at the bottom which has been punched out with the Scallop Border Punch.

Stampin Up Chalkboard Paper


An order arrived today which included some of the new Stampin Up Chalkboard Paper.
You get a pack of ten 6 x 12 inch sheets of it in black.
The velvety side is best for the new chalk Ink Pads and the other side is best for the Whisper White Ink Pad.
The first card is stamped with Whisper White Ink on the smooth side of the Chalkboard Card Stock.
I punched a bow with the cute new Gift Bow Punch out of Crisp Cantaloupe Paper Stacks DSP.
The other DSP used is the Best Day Ever from the Saleabration Brochure.
You can get a free pack of this with a qualifying order of  over £45.


The second card was stamped on the velvety  side with Rose Chalk Ink.
 The background DSP is from the paper stack in the new Spring/Summer Catalogue called Stacked With Love.The bow was punched out of Real Red Card Stock.
My thanks to Julie Kettlewell for the inspiration I got from her card HERE

Lotus Blossom Stamp Set


The new Stampin Up Spring/ Summer Catalogue launches today and it is the start of Saleabration.
These  cards were made using the Lotus Blossom Stamp set which is one of the Saleabration items that you can get for free with a £45 qualifying order.
the base is Pear P
izazz which I have embossed using the Spring Flowers Embossing Folder from the new Catalogue.
I stamped the lotus flower in Rose Chalk Ink and sponged the edges.
The sentiment is from another Saleabration Set called Simply Wonderful.


These cards were my Christmas Thank you Cards. I used Coastal Cabana Card Stock for the base and some of the Saleabration Best Year Ever DSP.


The DSP used in the third card is called Painted Blooms from the new Catalogue.
Once again I embossed the Soft Sky base with the Spring Flowers Embossing Folder.
I used the Butterflies Embosslit for the accents.
