I teamed the DSP with the Hello Cupcake from the 2019 Sale-A-Bration which you can earn FREE when you spend $90.00. Now I have a confession to make. I know the set is all about cupcakes, but to me they look like ice creams.

Today I am sharing with you a card we created last Friday in our Cards @ Toogoom class. It is a very simple & easy card but we’ve used the Spotlighting Technique which suits the Botanical Butterfly DSP perfectly. Remember, this DSP can only be earnt FREE while Sale-A-Bration is happening when you purchase product to the value of $90.
To colour my DSP, I used the Watercolour Pencils, but you could also use the Stampin’ Blends, Aqua Painter, Sponge Daubers to create different effects.
In fact in the next couple of weeks I will show you others that I’ve created using this fun technique.
Thank you for joining me today as I am once again playing along with the February Stamp ‘N Hop blog hop.
We are a group of SU! Demos from all over the world sharing their love of Stampin’ Up! You are able to join us if you like, but we do ask that you are a current SU! Demo & that you use current SU! products.
You may have arrived from Mo’s blog where I’m sure you would have seen her fantastic project.
This month is all about “LOVE”.
I don’t do Valentines so I thought I would try & create a “love” card for the male in your life.
I’m happy with how it turned out. Not too feminine but not too manly. In fact you could probably use it for either male or female. Mind you, it could easily be turned into a Valentine’s card by changing out the sentiment.

I’m happy to say that I have teamed up with Jenn, Lisa& Annette to bring you a Tutorial Bundle which will happen every 2 to 3 months. The current Bundle is highlighting some of the new goodies from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue. There is lots of inspiration that you’ll want to get your hands on.
I love sending out encouragement cards or “Just Because”. Isn’t this one of the reasons we create? Do you know of anyone you can send encouragement to? Maybe a Get Well Soon – or WOW, You are Amazing, even a Thank You card? I’m sure they would appreciate it.
I’ve had bits sitting on my desk that were waiting to be used. They were either from previous cards that didn’t suit or just sitting waiting to be used. So instead of ditching the pieces I thought I would try & create with what I had. All I had to do was the Base Card!
My card today is one I had created when I first received my pre-order (yes, it has been sitting on my desk for that long) waiting for me to decide what to do with it.
You may notice that there are no butterflies in the Bloom by Bloom Stamp Set but as I always stamp onto scrap paper first, I saw a few little butterflies popping out from the scrap paper & had to try them. Love it when you get multiple uses from our stamps, don’t you?
If you click on the link above the photo, you will be able to download a free tutorial to create your own version. The tutorial includes a list of products used, measurements (metric & imperial).

You may have noticed that I haven’t been consistently blogging but hopefully from today that will change & I will be back into the swing of things. Sometimes we just have to take a small break from things, recharge & refocus.
Friday was our first class back for 2019 & thought we would start off with a couple of easy cards as some of the class don’t usually create when we are on break – other things happening. It was really great to get back into it & to see & hear what we had all been up to over the break.
Do you recognize this card from Page 6 of the 2019 SAB Brochure? I love to case the catalogues for ideas . Sometimes I will change them around to suit what I want, other times they will be exact while other times it is a starting point.
Anyhow I have used the Hello Cupcake for my card today. Now to make a confession – to me this set reminds of ice creams so if you hear me talking about ice creams you know what I am on about!!!
The stamping is exactly the same as Card 1 but was stamped onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock before being layered onto a piece of Calypso Coral & then to the Whisper White Note Card.
To finish it off I randomly scattered 3 x Calypso Coral Enamel Dots.
Card #3 – Avid
Once again I stamped my images & sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock keeping with the same colours. A piece of DSP was cut to about 1 1/4″ in height & adhered to a piece of Calypso Coral so that a small amount is showing along top. This was then adhered to the stamped Whisper White, then layered onto a piece of Calypso Coral & finally to the Whisper White Note Card.
To finish it off, again I added 3 x Calypso Coral Enamel Dots, tied a small bow from Thick Whisper White Baker’s Twine which was adhered to the flower with a Mini Glue Dot.
I sure hope that you have enjoyed these cards & that they have inspired you in some way to play with our products.
