Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Specialty Papers -February 2021

Hello lovelies,

welcome to our Stamping Sunday Blog Hop. We get together from all around the world every 4th Sunday to show and share our creations with you. This month our theme is Specialty Papers form the Mini Catalogue 2021 Jan to June.

I'm Sharni Haines from South Australia.

I have made 3 cards, 3 different ways, stepping it up each time.


1. The first way is designed for the Beginner, or what I like to also think of as simple & quick stamping. For those who like clean, simple and quick cards using very a little amount of product.

I have chosen to work with the Golden Garden Designer Specialty Acetate. For this card I just added a piece of the Acetate to the base of a white card. To hold it in place, I used a mini glue dot on each corner.

The butterfly was die cut from some highland Heather cardstock with the new Brilliant Wings Dies that can be pre ordered right now if you are a demonstrator. They are coming out with the new Annual Catalogue in May but you can get them early too between the 2 March to 3 May 2021.


2. Second is designed for the Casual Stamper who has a little more time, more products and likes to try out and use some different techniques.

This time I added a die cut piece of Highland Heather Cardstock (using the Rectangled Stitched Framelits).

The sentiment was die cut from the Floral Gallery Dies, it's something a little different than what I have used before.

I added an extra butterfly cut from Gold Foil and a bit of bling.


3. Third is for the Avid Stamper who has the time, an extensive collection of products and a little more experience or likes a challenge!

This card has a few more layers. You may also notice the butterflies have been water coloured onto Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper.

I used Highland Heather, Magneta Madness & Bermuda Bay inks to get a mix of pinky purple onto the watercolour paper. I also ended up adding Highland Heather re inker to make it a little darker. One piece of water paper was used to cut butterflies and the other was kept whole for the card number 3.

The BUTTERFLY BOUQUET - pre order 2 March to 3 May 2021.

The Highland Heather frame around card 3 was made with two dies from the Rectangled Stitched Framelits. Underneath the frame and Acetate is a whole piece of water colour paper (seen in previous photo).

Well that's all from me today. Thanks for stopping by. Keep hopping around to see all the other wonderful designs. And have a wonderful day.
