Butterfly Basics meets Painted Blooms from Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator Sarah Poulton

Good morning crafters.

Happy Thursday to you. How is your crafty week going? I had my lovely Hostess Club ladies round last night for a bit of craftiness and a cuppa. We had a lovely catch up over a card. I run my Hostess Club evenings every other month. I would love to welcome you to the Hostess Club, either locally or virtually (I can provide project kits if you are unable to attend), you can find out more here or by dropping me a line on And don't forget you'll benefit from sharing in regular Stampin' Up! promotions, a handmade gift from me each month and one month of hostess freebies.

Today's crafty share is inspired by this Jennifer McGuire tutorial I found on partial die cutting. I loved the simplicity of creating a dimensional fancy fold with my Butterflies Thinlits Dies.  Although after prepping 8 of these card bases I did begin to wonder what had inspired this creative fancifulness (each card required 3 times through the Big Shot).

I used the Butterfly Basics stamp set to create the Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight butterflies. Both the Thinlits and Stamps are available as part of a fantastically priced bundle  (only £36.25 for the photopolymer bundle).

I layered a strip of Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper over Old Olive cardstock and secured this to my base layer (so the butterflies overlapped). I then finished with a Melon Mambo coloured pearl (I used my Blendabilities markers to colour my pearl) and three Brights Candy Dots.
