Butterfly Gala for Kylie’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to Kylie’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop for December! We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from all over the world sharing our love of stamping. We are all part of Kylie Bertucci’s training group where we are having a great time learning and growing our Stampin’ Up!® businesses. If this is the first time you are visiting my blog, welcome! My name is Anne Marie Hile and I live in the United States. I’m so glad you stopped by today! 

My card features a sneak peek from the new Stampin’ Up!® Occasions Catalog which will be available to order from on January 3rd. I just love the products in the new Gingham Gala Suite and have featured three of them on my card today. The include the Butterfly Gala stamp set, the coordinating Butterfly Duet Punch and the gorgeous Gingham Gala Designer Series paper. 
I don’t know about you but I just love stamp sets that have coordinating punches! This set has multiple butterfly images and they are so easy to punch out to add some dimension to your card. I kept my layout pretty clean so those beautiful butterflies could have the spotlight. I love how they look like they are “flying” off the card. So fun! 

I added a little pop of texture to the background using the Polka Dot Basics Textured Impressions Embossing folder. Let’s talk about that sentiment. Opening an envelope to a “Hello Beautiful” sentiment is an instant day-brightener, don’t you think? As a finishing touch, I added a little sprinkling of rhinestones, because everything is better with a little sparkle. I made multiples of this card for our team swap this month. It’s so fun and “springy” and a nice break from holiday cards.
