Butterfly Brilliance #simplestamping Card

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it. Today I am bringing you the video tutorial for the card I made for the Stamp 'n Hop blog hop. The theme this month was #simplestamping. I decided to  use the lovely Butterfly Brilliance stamp set. This is one of the new stamp sets in the new Stampin' Up! Annual catalogue, I just love it. I actually got it during the prerelease period but have not yet used it in a project. There are dies to cut these out and detailed dies but for this #simplestamping card. I used one of the new In Colours, Evening Evergreen, for the blog hop but for this video tutorial I have decided to use Fresh Freesia. I really love this set of colours.  In the original card I stuck the mat and frame on at an angle, for the video I stuck them straight, which do you prefer? I'd love to know :-) 


Butterfly Brilliance #simplestamping Card

Measurements and Materials

  • Thick Basic White card base
    • 8 1/4" x 5 7/8"
    • Score @ 4 1/8" on the long side
  • Fresh Freesia frame made using the 2 larges Stitched Rectangles
  • Butterflies stamped onto Basic White card stock with Fresh Freesia
  • I used Wink Of Stella to colour the bodies of the butterflies
    • You could always use just a paintbrush and water
  • I cut the stamped card stock with the second largest Stitched Rectangle
  • I decided to stick the frame and the butterflies at an angle to each other
  • The sentiment is from another new stamp set, Flowers Of Friendship
  • The Double Oval punch is just perfect for this sentiment


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

Just in case you are new to my blog let me introduce Jill (Paper Daisy Crafting) she is on the right of this photo (I am on the left). She has a lovely Blog which I am sure you will want to check out.



Project 1


   Jill & Gez Go Crafting 10th May 2021




Yesterday during our Facebook Live Jill made a beautiful card in Fresh Freesia. Then she revealed the same card in Polished Pink. This is such a pretty card, Jill mixed blends and water colour pencils and they look so good together. Who would have thought of doing this? 





Project 2

Jill & Gez Go Crafting 10th May 2021



I just love this card, it's simple and effective and a great scrap buster. Such a fun card, great for the men in your life and also great for children. I love the mix of die cuts and stamping for the sentiment. I might be doing that myself. 

Project 3 


Jill & Gez Go Crafting 10th May 2021


This last card was made for a floral themed blog hop we both took part in on Saturday. I love the flowers of Friendship bundle that Jill has used who doesn't love a flower stamp and matching punch?! Love how these new in colours all go together so well. 



I hope you enjoyed the projects I chose and I hope you will go and check out Jill's Blog.



Happy Crafting :-)

Come Crafting With Jill & Gez Facebook Live: Making A Desk Top Calendar

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it. Yesterday I did a Facebook Live with my good friend Jill from Paper Daisy Crafting in our Facebook Group Come Crafting With Jill and Gez. We do these once a month, usually on the first Saturday of the month unless that is a Bank Holiday which is was last Saturday so we moved it! Our theme was new products fro the 2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.  I have used the Days To Remember stamp set, a hidden gem in the catalogue I believe and I teamed it up with the beautiful Hand Penned DSP. Check me out using my DSP so early in the catalogues life! lol

I wanted to make a desk top calendar, seems an obvious choice for this stamp set! I was inspired by one Jill made me which was inspired by one she received by her downline Anthony. The way you stamp the dates is so clever, who ever designed this stamp is an absolute genius.  It is so easy and pretty much foolproof. 



Come Crafting With Jill & Gez Facebook Live: Making A Desk Top Calendar

Measurements and Materials

  • Highland Heather Card Stock 6 1/2" x 7 1/2" (x2) 
  • Score one sheet on the long side @ 6 1/2 & 7 1/2"
  • Score the other on the long side @ 1/2" & 7"
  • Gorgeous Grape Card Stock 6 1/4" x 5"
  • DSP 6" x 4 3/4"
  • Stitched So Sweetly dies used for mats and calendar 
  • The calendar stamp is just magic, you can stamp any month of any year with it
  • You just move it on the ink pad so that the days fall in the correct sequence depending on if you want your weeks to start on a Monday or a Sunday. I like a Monday start. 
  • The month section fits just perfectly onto the ink pad so you won't get other number you don't want inked - genius
