Who else has been enjoying the Garden & Wildlife during the recent long warm spell we’ve just in the UK ?

Welcome to our Blog Hop today with my Global Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator friends, for this months ‘hop’, sharing our projects themed around the Garden & Wildlife.

I love an early morning cuppa, watching the wildlife in our back garden. Living in a village, backing onto fields, we are able to welcome a wide variety of wildlife. This morning one of our cheeky squirrels was scurrying in one of the half-barrel planters, looking for food.

Products used

My chosen feature for this Garden & Wildlife themed Blog Hop was to use the beautiful Butterfly Brilliance, stamp & Die bundle #155821. This is a truly wonderful and flexible bundle, particularly if you love Butterflies. My Customers love Fancy Folds so teamed these elements together for todays ‘hop’.

The solid butterflies were die cut in Basic Black card #121688 and, to add some sparkle, I then die-cut my filigree butterflies using the Pale Papaya from the 2021-2023 In-Colour Shimmer Vellum #155616, a new addition in the recent new Annual Catalogue.

For my background, I chose the Hand-Penned 12″x12″ Designer Series Papers #155499, with it’s gorgeous florals but also the backs of the papers, provide the coordination.

See how I created this card …

If you are on Facebook, tune in at 8pm every Sunday to see me ‘Live’. Tonight I will be sharing this card, as it is a relatively new fold and new background inking technique which I’ve not previously shared with my viewers.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today. Be sure to click the ‘NEXT’ button below and hop round and view all the lovely projects created by my Stampin’ Up! colleagues in the list below. Have fun ‘hopping’ around the globe for more ‘non-traditional’ inspiration and hope to see you safely back here again soon.
