It is a fabulous blog hop with lots of ideas for a special lady in your life, not all are Mothers Day cards.

InsprieINK February Blog Hop: For a special lady

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you so much for visiting my blog today while I am on a blog hop. This is my monthly hop that I do with fellow Pootlers. It's the InspireINK blog hop and it's well worth hoping around. The theme this month is ' For a special lady' which for us in the UK is on time for our Mothers Day.

Ngezza Creates InspireINK Blog hop Mothers day



Materials

I created this card using the double Z fancy fold card method. Tomorrow I will share the measurements and the link to the video tutorial that is published then as well.

I have used the Petal Promenade DSP, the Stitched Rectangles and the the foliage dies from Petals and More and Frosted Bouquet. To make the flowers I used the Bitty Blooms punches. The sentiment is from Incredible Like You. 

I really like how the stitched rectangles add a little something special to this card and the addition of the little flowers is like the flowers on the DSP are coming alive ...maybe not but that is what I was trying to achieve. The addition of a pearl in the centre of the flowers adds a bit of luxury to the card. 

Video Tutorial

Please pop back tomorrow for the video tutorial :-)

Swaps CASE: How to deconstruct a box and make up your own using Botanical Butterflies

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you so much for visiting my blog today, I really hope you like my project.  I made this little gift bag by CASEing a swap I received at a Pootlers Team weekend. The original swap was made by Chrissy Wilson. I loved the original so I deconstructed the bag and worked out how it was made. I then recreated it in retired DSP and then adapted it so that more could be made from a 12" x 12" piece of DSP. I have a video that shows the whole process.



Stampin' Up! Botanical Butterflies Nigezza Creates

Measurements and Materials


The original gift bag used a piece of DSP  measuring 6" x 4 1/4"
If I am going to do a lot of these I want to get as many as possible out of a 12" x 12" sheet of DSP so I decided to alter these measurements so that 6 could be cut from each sheet rather than just 4.


  • Botanical Butterfly DSP 6" x 4"
  • Score on the long side @ 1/2" - 1 1/4" - 3 1/4" - 4"
  • Score on the short side @ 3/4" - 3"

Now watch the video tutorial to see how I deconstructed the original box and made my version :-)
