Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - My Awesomely Artistic Friend Heat Embossing Detail

Creativity is something that I surround myself with these days. With a facebook group for my team, a business page that people share on and a huge international group that hit over 5,000 members at the weekend, you can understand why!

Each person who shares, comments (you note, I’m more on top of that here these days I hope!) and shops and talks, well, each of you inspires me.

I am dedicating my card today, made with the Awesomely Artistic stamp set, to you.

I heat embossed the main floral design in gold onto Crumb Cake and backed with with Very Vanilla and Pool Party cardstock.

The butterflies made with the Bitty and Elegant Butterfly punches are for you all too, my wonderful fluttering friends who are in my life and make it so pretty.

I sponged them up too, just a little, and did the same with the wording that I punched with the Washi Label punch.

So to you, my awesomely artistic friends, thank you for being my inspiration!

    Hi Sam, really love the card and the colours. Awesomely artistic stamp set is going to be my favourite if my parcel ever arrives. I ordered on the 19th and still being picked. I know they have moved warehouse but I am waiting for so much to arrive. Mind you I haven’t managed any crafting for ages as still trying to organise myself. There is so much for me to learn that my head is swimming with it all. Love you x x
