Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop – Butterfly Basics


It’s time for the Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop crew to wow you with their makes! Who are the Stampin’ Creative? We’re a happy group of UK Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who have decided to come together once a month to share projects along a set theme or sketch. So on the last Saturday of the month, you can be sure to swing by my blog for a tour of inspirational projects. You may have arrived from Emma at Coastal Crafter – weren’t her makes just delightful! You can see a full list of the hop below. Here is my addition to the collective this month – a birthday card created with the Butterfly Basics Stamp set.


  • So this month we had a sketch to follow – we could flip it and adjust the embellishment, but as long as you can still see the form of the sketch then it was just letting creativity flow. Do you use sketches when your mojo is flailing?

  • The Butterfly Basics Stamp Set  is a gorgeous offering from the Spring Summer Seasonal catalogue with a collection of 13 stamps to create a myriad of scenes.

  • The honeycomb stamp creates a great background feature as does the fern fronds. I stamped the flower images using Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz markers and coloured in the images using my blender pens for that softer palette.

  • The Butterfly image is stamped and then die cut simply with the Butterflies Thinlets dies that coordinate with this set. Buy both together for a saving of 15%.

  • The inside of this card also features some coordinating stamping. Just a perfect way to finish it off!
