Butterfly Bouquet Blog Hop!

Friday 5 March 2021 United Kingdom

Today we are bringing you the Butterfly Bouquet Blog Hop!

This beautiful collection of Butterfly themed stamps, dies and patterned paper is available now!

If you have arrived from Julie's blog, welcome to my blog!

I'm Kim and I live in Somerset in the UK. You'll find lots of inspiration here today from Stampin' Up! demonstrators and papercrafters from Canada, USA and the UK!

There are some beautiful stamps and lovely and colourful DSP available as part of the Butterfly Bouquet early release - the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set, the Brilliant Wings dies and the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper. You'll see examples of the stamps and DSP in other projects in this hop!

I'm not using the whole collection today as I wanted to show you just how lovely the Brilliant Wings dies are and how they can work with any DSP. I'm using the Peony Garden DSP and I've created this project as a gift as these wonderfully muted colours will suit the recipient perfectly.

For the lid of my tin, I've die cut two butterflies from Vellum Cardstock and one from Gray Granite cardstock -  sandwiching the cardstock between two layers of vellum to add softness and depth. 

I've also added a smaller butterfly die cut from Champagne Foil and added a Pearl into the centre, for that touch of luxury. 

My tin holds a 7 4.5" x 4..5" cards but I am sure I could squeeze a few more in. I've intentionally not add any dimension to ensure I maximise the space in the tin.

When the cards have been posted, the tin can be used as a decorative item and could even hold special keepsakes or jewellery.

These cards are really simple but are specifically designed so they can used for all sorts of occasions - hello, thinking of you, birthdays, thank you, wedding, anniversary, congratulations and sympathy. 

You could always include in the tin some embellishments and a bunch of hand stamped sentiments and adhesive so the cards can be personalised when required. 

The Stitched Shapes dies are a must have for your die collection. The stitching effect adds just the right amount of details - I've used all three shapes on my cards - square, circle and ovals!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog - I hope you enjoyed my project today!
