Butterfly Bouquet Blog Hop


Today I'm participating in Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop.  I'm so excited to be part of this training program again this year and happy to be participating in this Blog Hop with amazing Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world. The purpose of the group is for the group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators that are part of the program...to share ideas and to learn from each other...to help us in our Stampin' Up! Business. 

Today you will "hop around the world" and check out the amazing projects created by these very talented demonstrators.  I'm glad you could join us today for this blog hop for ideas and creative inspiration. You are currently visiting Melva Peters from British Columbia, Canada.  You can visit all of the other blogs using the links posted below.

The theme of our blog hop today is Butterfly Bouquet!  We are sharing this amazing new product that is being released by Stampin' Up! in advance of the Annual Catalogue that launches at the beginning of May.  The Butterfly Brilliance Bundle will be available for you to purchase starting March 2nd and I know you're going to want it!  

My card is a fancy fold card and shows off the amazing stamp set as well as the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper and the Natural Touch Specialty Paper.  Both of these papers are only available until May 3rd!

  1. Cut Thick Basic White Cardstock 7" x 5 1/2" and score at 4 1/4".  Fold on score line to create card base.

  5. Use the "hashtag" die to create a pattern on the circle.
  6. Stamp a butterfly on Basic White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and cut out using Die.
  7. Colour the butterfly using Stampin' Blends - Calypso Coral, Just Jade and Daffodil Delight.
  8. Adhere to the circle using Dimensionals.
  9. Adhere the circle to the flap using Dimensionals.
