A Whole Lot of Lovely with Orange Blossom

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – A Whole Lot of Lovely with Orange Blossom

How adorable is this card?! The Whole Lot of Lovely DSP pack is a real standout star anyway, but I’ve really had to push myself to get those Tangerine Tango flowers out and on show. But I think I’ve done it! I think the addition of the stamped flowers in both that colour and Crushed Curry worked.

I am a real fan of using Paper as the main focus of a card, it’s very much my style, and lots of layers (I have 1 more than I usually do, mostly I go for 3!) make it a real statement piece.

I’m not sure when I started doing layered cards, certainly I was doing them when I first began crafting 14 years ago, but that was more because I wasn’t a stamper then, and preferred to use just paper and punches. I didn’t even own a die cutter either! Not a stamp or ink or die in sight (nor peel-offs, but let’s not go there)

So this card is for all of you who still revert back to an old style of crafting that you’ve done for many years, for you Friend.

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!
