Botanical Butterfly Card For Card Sketch Challenge #SFA

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it and hope you like the project and will take a look at the video tutorial as well.  Todays project is a card I made for a sketch challenge. I dd it first in Lemon Lime Twist then made a Highland Heather one for the video tutorial. I know which one I like best, which one do you like best?

I hope you will click onto my YouTube channel and see how I created this card.


Botanical Butterfly Card For Card Sketch Challenge #SFA Nigezza Creates Stampin' Up!


The Card Sketch

Card Sketch challenge #SFA

Over on the Facebook group Stampin' For All, where I am a member of the Design Team, 2 challenges are set each week. Every Monday it is a theme and every Wednesday its a colour or sketch challenge. This sketch challenge was set by my very good friend and team mate Jill from Paper Daisy Crafting. I made my Lemon Lime Twist card for the challenge and people liked it so much I decided to do a tutorial on it but using a different paper from the Botanical Butterfly FREE DSP pack.

Only one week left of Sale-A-Bration so only one week left to get this beautiful paper pack for FREE. After March 31st you will not be able to get this paper anymore as it will retire. 


Measurements and Materials

I cheated in the original card and used a punch that Stampin' do not sell but I was in a hurry to meet the challenge deadline! When I recreated it for the video tutorial I used the small square from the stitched shapes framelits.


  • Card base is half a standard A4 sheet of card stock 8 1/4" x 5 7/8"
  • Folded size 4 1/8" x 5 7/8"
    • Highland Heather Card stock 
  • 1st Mat is 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
    • Whisper White card stock - I cut 2 so I had one for the middle of the card as well
  • 2nd Mat 3 5/8" x 5 3/8" 
    • This was in the Botanical Butterfly DSP
  • I used a strip of Whisper White to go around the middle of the DSP mat 5 5/8" x 1/2"
  • I used the Highland Heather Free SAB Ribbon. which unfortunately is no longer available. to wrap around this belly band
  • The 3 Highland Heather squares were made with the smallest Stitched Square framlit
  • These were matted onto Whisper White squares 1 3/8" x 1 3/8"
  • I used the Butterfly Gala Stamp set and punch to create the 3 butterflies 
  • I stamped the outline in Gorgeous Grape and filled it in with Highland Heather but stamping off first so it had a lighter impression
  • I used the Birthday Wishes sentiment from Varied Vases 
    • Stamped using Gorgeous Grape on Whisper White
  • I cut it out with the Classic Label Punch and cut another in Highland Heather to mat
  • I finished the card of with a strip of the DSP on the inside of the card and the flap of the envelope and used the small butterfly that you get while stamping and punching to add some extra interest.
  • I have never decorated the envelope in this way but I really like it, what do you think?


Now watch the video tutorial to see how the box was made :-)

The Project Share Project #12

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Nigezza Creates Project Share 1


Thank you so much for visiting my blog today, its Thursday so I am here with another  Project Share. I have chosen 3 projects for you that I hope you will enjoy.

Heather from Stamp With Nellie



Stampin Up, #pootlersrock the project share project



I chose this project because I love a good scrapbook layout. I have often looked at this DSP and thought it would be good for a travel scrapbook. This layout shows it would be. I love it.


You can take a closer look at this project by clicking here :-) 


Verity from Inkybutterfly  


Stampin Up, #pootlersrock the project share project


I love these tags. The way they are layered and the colour matched the daisy stamp on each tag. Who wouldn't be pleased to receive a present with this on it?

You can take a closer look at this project by clicking here :-) 


Helzie from Slimm & Styish

Stampin Up, #pootlersrock the project share project


A stunning card here, the blacked out bird really gives the card some 'wow' factor. I love it against the really colourful back ground as well it just adds to the 'wow'. 




I do hope you have enjoyed the projects I have chosen for you and you will go and check them out. I look forward to bringing you some more projects next time :- )

I will be back tomorrow with another  Project, until then ...

Happy Crafting!
