Stampin Friends February 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s Stampin Friends Blog Hop.

The theme for this month is Favourites.

This is an easy one for me as I love anything with Butterflies on and we have a few stamp sets and dies which fit this category. I decided to go for the Butterfly Beauty dies as you can die cut so many different butterflies.

My Project

I have been working with Sandra Roberts (my upline) on a Techniques Folder so that I can remember the different techniques and refer back if I get stuck.

I love working with the Stampin’ Up! 6″ x 8″ Folders especially the one with the black material down the side as you can do anything to the rest of the cover.

For my album I chose to have a base layer using Basic Black onto which I stuck the Butterfly Beauty die cut butterflies. I only used the one die as I wanted to see the Melon Mambo card stock.

Next I stamped the letters ‘TECHNIQUES onto different coloured card stock scraps using Lined Alphabet stamp set. These I then die cut using the matching dies, cutting off the angular pieces.

I then arranged these on top of the folder and stuck them in place.

My Card

For the card I wanted to keep it simple but interesting. So I stamped the card using the Crackle Glaze stamp and Soft Sea Foam ink pad.

Then I die cut both layers of the butterflies and stuck these together and then fixed them onto the card base.

I just love how these dies can be used on their one as one layer or by adding the second layer you have much more detail on the butterflies.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects and want to have a go yourself.

  1. What a great idea to keep your past techniques as a reference! The butterflies are so pretty! Thanks for sharing

  2. I just love the technique book, I never think to use black as a base, great job it really makes everything else pop!
