Butterfly Gala | South Pacific Blog Hop

Hello there stamping friends! Some of my Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team friends from Australia and New Zealand - Narelle Farrugia, Angela Meiritz-Reid, Tanya Rees, Jackie Aitken and myself,  are having a special blog hop showing the Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Bundle, which includes the Butterfly Gala Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Butterfly Duet Punch.

Some of the products from the 2019 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalouge and Sale-a-bration Promotion have far exceeded expectations and are flying out the door. This includes the Butterfly Gala Bundle and the Butterfly Duet Punch. These products are very low in stock here in Australia, currently still avaliable, and will be put on back order once the inventory of these products has been depleted. 

If the bundle or the punch is on your wish list, then make sure you grab this NOW to ensure you get you hands on these beautiful products. It will be back… but not for a few months.

 If you are on the fence with this stamp set here are a few projects for you today that may whet your appetite to give you are few more ideas, showing you how versatile this bundle really is.

My projects today are combining the gorgeous colours of Mango Melody and So Saffron with the my favourite DSP at the moment, Botanical Butterfly DSP, which is a Sale-a-bration FREEBIE at the moment. Spend $90 (not including P & H) with me and you can get this stunning, stunning paper. How gorgeous is that black and white gingham? If you've been following me for a while now you know that a Black and White DSP is my favourite. It's such a classic look.

To get the two tone colour on the butterfly I used the Stamparatus and some sponge daubers. First the Mango Melody was sponged on the middle of the solid butterfly image, stamped on the butterfly black outline, and then leaving the stamp in place on the Stamparatus plate I kept adding the colour with the daubers until I was happy with the colour on each butterfly.

Are you loving the wooden butterfly accents throughout my projects today? These too are a Sale-a-bration FREEBIE! Got to love FREE products! One of the wooden Butterfly Elements is a butterfly outline. This outline looks fabulous on its own or the larger butterfly punch out from the Butterfly Duet Punch fits perfectly inside this outline! Don't you just love it when these different products all fit in together.

Have you ever wanted to use a piece of DSP to cover the whole base layer of your card but thought that it was too 'busy'? Why not cover a portion of it with some vellum. The vellum really tones down the pattern but still allows it to show through. It might be a bit hard to see here but I did die cut this piece of vellum using the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  I could have just cut a piece of the vellum with my Stampin' Trimmer but I think the stitching on the rectangle really just gives that something extra and special.

If you think that a card needs that something else, why not add some splatters or embossing paste or even both. It's hard to see here but I used the Shimmery White Embossing paste to give that little bit of sparkle, and then using a Stampin' Write marker flicked the brush tip end to create that splatter.

I really hope that I've given you some more inspiration using this amazing Butterfly Gala Bundle. Remember that if you want this Bundle or the Punch on it's own you need to get it NOW or you'll have to wait a couple of months before there is more product back in stock.
