Hey Friend, Orange Blossom Subtles

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Hey Friend, Orange Blossom Subtles

See… I told you I loved the Orange Blossom stamp set.

This one is totally different to my Incentive Trip swap that I showed you on Tuesday, but just as lovely!

I decided to go with 3 of the lovely Subtles collection colours for my card, with Wisteria Wonder and So Saffron then the Pear Pizzazz duplicated on the card blank and also on that stunning Shimmer Ribbon. If you haven’t yet had a look at it, there are 4 beautiful colours of shimmer ribbon and I love them all!

I love this style of card though, just a little bit of stamping and a great phrase in the middle. That says all it needs, but that little strip of ribbon just lifts it and adds the tiny accent of texture this card needed.

So hands up, who else has fallen for Orange Blossom?

Pootles’ Picks Shopping Gifts

Everyone who shops with me gets a handmade card and gift in the post. Sometimes the gift is a handcrafted item, sometimes it’s a product share, sometimes it’s something else entirely!

And every person gets that, regardless of how large or small your order is. I am grateful to everyone who shops with me.

I do however also have a Hostess Code and always share the goodies out amongst everyone who uses it. This month, I’m trialling something different.


  • Spend over £50/€65 and receive the divine Metallic Edge Ribbon in Silver worth £6.25/€8.50
  • Spend over £100/€135 and receive the utterly beautiful Background Bits stamp set worth £19/€25
  • If you’d still like to use the code and be part of the collective, but your order is under £50, please feel free to use it and I’ll make sure to pop a little something extra in your parcel!
  • If your order is over £150/€200 please do not use the code as you will be your own Hostess and get your own rewards to spend!
