Hi, whether you've hopped here from Mikaela's fab blog, having enjoyed her creative talent, or simply stopped by - welcome!
Today I'm joining a small team of Stampin' Up! demonstrators in a blog hop. This is intended to be a monthly event, I will be taking part when I am able to.
The task this month was to create a card or other project taking our inspiration from this sketch...
I wanted to use the new Butterfly Basics stamp set in which the sentiment speaks of the caterpillars change into a butterfly. The night and day images on my card represent 'change'. I masked and sponged before stamping, also used a little white gel pen to highlight.
This is what I created -
Then I thought “ Would be nice to either put it into a treat bag rather than an envelope, and give it by hand, or use a treat bag for....a treat!”
I'd already used the new Treat Bag die to make up a little bag from textured typing paper that we'd had sitting around for years. So out came a few more bits and bobs. This was the result.....

Does it work? Below you can see both projects together. I hope that I've managed to keep within the remit regarding the sketch. There is a list of supplies beneath the photo as well as a link to the next blog which is Eimear's.
Here is the supply list...it seems huge but that's because the stamp set is available in three different materials and also in three different bundles, as well as the stamps and dies being available separately. Now, THAT's what I call giving you a choice!
