Hello and Welcome to our first Social Stamping blog hop for 2021!! Thankyou Kelly Kent for enabling us to stay connected through our love of stamping!!

The theme for our hop this month is the Brights Stampin' Up! colour family.
Now I have a secret to share - the Brights are always a challenge for me. I'm not comfortable with them and always get wrapped in angst about how to put them together!! So, my journey to this card took several twists and turns. I knew I wanted to use my new butterflies, because, well, they're new!! So first I stamped them and coloured with Stampin' Blends in the Brights - but I did an awful job of that!! Then, I die cut all the butterflies in each of the Brights cardstock and that looked crazy too!!
So, this is my final attempt at the combination of butterflies and Brights!! I coloured the large butterfly stamp using the Brights Stampin' Write Markers, spritzed using my Stampin' Mist stamp cleaner, and then stamped onto Shimmery White card stock..... and finally I had a look I loved!!
The greetings from my card come from the Friends are like Seashells stamp set stamped using Poppy Parade. I punched it out using the ever useful Timeless Label punch. I've also stamped another butterfly from Butterfly Wishes, used markers, spritzed and punched it out with the Butterfly Punch. The beautiful ribbon on the front comes from the lovely Flowers for Every Season ribbon pack.
You can see all my discarded butterfly attempts in front of my card here - now to try and resurrect them onto another project - I really don't like any waste!! If I'm lucky, I might be inspired by one of the projects on our hop today - there's ALWAYS so many stunning ideas shared by this amazing group!!
