The Hooray to You stamp set has this fabulously large image with coordinating smaller images which makes for a quick card. Use our Stampin’ Write markers to color the flowers to match the patterned paper. Two overlapping Classic Label punches add a bit of interest.

Butterfly Bouquet Spring is Coming!

I took this week to plan for some spring activities, bee hives and taxes! You can guess which one was the more fun one 😉 I’ll take you along on my bee keeping adventures again. This will be my second year as a beek (short for bee keeper). I literally just got purple posy paint delivered right to my front door from a friend to paint my first hive. So looking forward to what my bee keeping journey brings and not just because I get to use purple posy paint!

Stampin’ Up! is helping us get ready for spring too by releasing the Butterfly Bouquet suite ahead of the new annual catalog to goes live in early Mary. The offering includes a special package of patterned paper, Butterfly Bijou, which is only available during the early release promotion and while supplies last. It’s 6×6 inches, 8 each 6 double sided patterns for a total of 48 sheets.

Purchase the coordinating stamp set and die cuts individually or bundle priced for a 10% savings.

There is also a Natural Touch Specialty paper that can be purchased separately or included in the suite Butterfly Brillance suite collection as shown below.

See what you can make with the collection below…

Paper Crafting Blog Touch of Ink

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you showcasing exclusive, free products you can earn with qualifying orders. You may have arrived from Nancy’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I paired the Touch of Ink Sale-a-bration stamp set with the Forever Flowers pattern paper from the annual catalog.

I used a modified Rock n Roll technique to color the hummingbird. Ink the image in Crumb Cake. Then Rock n Roll Shaded Spruce on the belly and Night of Navy on the wings. Yep, ink is transferred to the acrylic block. Just wipe with a tissue to keep your fingers clean.

ICS Blog Hop Touch of Ink

The Inspire Create and Share Blog Hop has stops around the world. We are glad you found us. If you have arrived from Sandra Robert’s blog, welcome! If you are starting at my blog, make sure to hop all the way around until you land back on my blog. The hop today features our favorite Sale-a-bration products which can be earned free with purchase.

I decided to do a little something with the Flower and Field designer series paper. It features boldly colored images against a black backdrop for a stunning look.

The watercolor images in this set go outside of the lines, just like real watercolor would, without the watery mess:) I fussy cut around the butterfly with our super sharp paper snips. I tried various embellishments on this design. But the bold daisy print made creating this card easy with no additional embellishments needed.

The 4×1 inch strip that was leftover from cutting the large 5×4 inch background piece is wrapped around the white square for a finished look.

I almost made creating this card super simple with just stamps, paper, ink and the paper snips. But I tend to have die cut and embossed shapes in my sniblet bin. You know the one, where all your leftovers go to be used for another day. The basic white piece was enhanced using our new Stitched with Whimsy dies that coordinate with the Hot Dog stamp set.

Here are the supplies I used…
