Wednesday, 24 February 2021


Welcome to February's Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop! This month the theme is Children's Birthday, I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has created! Please be sure to hop all the way around for lots of inspirational projects created by the design team. 

How cute is this donkey? I thought it was perfect for our children's theme this month! Now that my girls are nearly 21 and 18 I don't often need cards for little children! The floral paper is from the Well Suited DSP - it's so pretty!

To avoid fussy cutting this little donkey, I stamped it onto watercolour paper, coloured it in and die cut it using a Stitched Rectangle Die.

Next up in today's hop is my lovely and inspirational friend Janneke in The Netherlands, I'm looking forward to seeing what gorgeous creation Janneke has to share with us.

Hello and welcome to February's Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team project, I'm Angela Meiritz-Reid from Christchurch, New Zealand and I am so excited to be part of this amazing team of talented Stampin' Up! demonstrators from around the world. I've added links below for the Stampin' Up! Facebook Page and Instagram Account to check out all the projects, as this year, with a team of 21, we won't be doing blog hops.
This month my projects were created using the Sweet Strawberry Bundle from the January-June Mini Catalogue and the Berry Blessings Stamp Set and Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.

These products are gorgeous and I've loved creating with them. The Sale-A-Bration products are only available until 28 February 2021! If you would like to purchase any products to earn any of the FREE Sale-A-Bration items please visit my Stampin' Up! Store. All the products used in my projects are detailed below.

I love how the Strawberry Builder Punch co-ordinates perfectly with images in the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper, especially these gorgeous little flowers.

All the creations by the Artisan Design Team can be found on the Stampin' Up! Facebook Page and on the Stampin' Up! Instagram Account

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I'm sharing my card I created using the Butterfly Bouquet. The Butterfly Bouquet is a sneak peak from Stampin' Up's upcoming 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue. The Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team has created 20 new projects using this gorgeous new collection from cards, scrapbooking, to home décor and more.

The Butterfly Bouquet consists of the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle (Item #155821), Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper (Item #156824), and Natural Touch Specialty Paper (Item #156825). These products are available for pre-order by Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from February 2 – March 1, 2021 and available to all customers starting March 2, 2021.

This is a limited, early release of these products and they are currently only available for pre-order to Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. If you aren’t yet a Demonstrator, please contact me to find out how to become one and the benefits that come with it, including being able to order products early!

I love the gorgeous colours and imagery in the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper, they create the perfect backdrop for the stamped and die cut images from the Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set and Brilliant Wings Dies.

To create my card, I started with a piece of the Natural Touch Specialty Paper the size of my card front. Before adhering it I die cut the paper using the die that looks like aluminium tread plate! I positioned it to show from opposite corners of the butterfly panel. I layered up the paper with the small butterfly images, with a gold bow from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack, then a circle from the Shaped Framelits dies and finally the butterfly.

The butterfly was stamped with Staz On then watercoloured with Blushing Bride and Magenta Madness ink (co-ordinating with the colours in the DSP).

I look forward to sharing more projects with you using this stunning collection.

The Butterfly Bouquet will be available to customers from 2 March until 3 May 2021.

Hello and welcome to the Stamping Society's February Blog Hop and Monthly Tutorial. I love being part of this team of amazingly talented Stampin' Up!® demonstrators from around the world.

Our theme this month is Sale-A-Bration and I've chosen to showcase the Berry Blessings Stamp Set which is a FREE set available in the latest Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration Brochure. Here's a sneak peek of the gorgeous creations everyone has made.


We have a video tutorial available, showcasing six different and exclusive projects. You can get these tutorials by:
  1. Buying the tutorials ($10.25 NZD from me or equivalent in each market), click on the Buy Now Button under Tutorials for Sale at the top of this page, to make your purchase; or
  2. Spend $37 worth of Stampin' Up! product from me and you'll get these for free.
  3. Get them for free as a member of my Stampin' Up! Team.

I love this set! It is so versatile and is fun to create with. These images were stamped and embossed in Gold Emboss Powder and then to create a shadow, I drew around them with the Light Crumb Cake Blends. Even if you don't like colouring this is a very easy technique and doesn't take too long!

Because I love bling, I randomly added splotches of the Gilded Leafing Embellishment. To do this, I dabbed glue over my card, placed the Gilded Leafing over the glue, left it to dry then rubbed off what wasn't glued. The Gilded Leafing Embellishment is lots of fun to create with and lots of possibilities on how to use it.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope my project has inspired you to get creative! Please continue on the hop to see everyone's creative projects.
