Stampin' Up! Inspiring Iris Spring Cards for the Stamper's Showcase March 2021 Blog Hop

Welcome to the March 2021 Stamper's Showcase Blog Hop!  This month our theme is "Spring has sprung."  I pulled out the retiring Inspiring Iris stamp set to make these "Springy" floral cards.  Iris are among the first flowers to appear here in NY and I have several patches of pale purple ones around my yard.  
There are actually several floral images in this two-step stamp set and the sentiments are really pretty so I made both a Rococo Rose and a Purple Posey variation.  The Butterfly Gems are the perfect embellishment for these cards!

Stampin' Up! Multi-Colored Butterfly Bouquet Card for the Creative Cardiology Team March 2021 Butterfly Blog Hop

 Welcome to our Creative Card-iology Team March 2021 Blog Hop!  This month we're sharing projects created with a Springy Butterfly theme.  I absolutely love the Butterfly Brilliance background stamp and thought it would be fun to play around with a way to stamp the butterflies in different colors.  Stampin' Up!'s ink spots and Stamparatus were just what I needed!
Because the stamped butterfly background was so pretty I decided to use it as designer series paper.  I added a lovely sentiment from the Very Versailles stamp set and popped it up on a stitched circle accented by some Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon and a sprinkle of Rhinestones.
I made a quick step by step video tutorial at to show you how fun & easy this card is to make.  Please consider subscribing to my channel too!  I share new videos every Tuesday and Friday each week, and occasionally on other days too!
