We Create Feminine Blog Hop

Welcome to our hop! I have recommitted to our hop so hopefully things will run even smoother for the upcoming year. The themes are set and we're excited to create and share. We appreciate your continued support! Please remember to show us your love in the comments. 

This month we chose a feminine theme to cover Mother's Day, May flowers and much more. Be sure to come back next month for the masculine theme.

For my feminine creation I chose to use Butterfly Basics. I have had a lot of fun with this set over the years and I am sad to see it go. It is available in Wood Mount, Clear Mount or Photopolymer. You can get it before it's gone by purchasing before May 31. Use Hostess Code: JMKH3T7X

My favorite thing to do with this set is stacking the stamps. I tend to start with the lighter colors but there really is no rhyme or reason to the method. If it needs a little more I just add it on. Like the NY seal and the stripe. 

Card Front Close-Up

Inside Card

Envelope Flap

Fun fact: I used every stamp in the set to create the card and envelope.

Also featured: Basic Pearls, Butterfly Punch, Textured Impressions Folder.
Colors: So Saffron, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz

Thank you so much for joining us! Visit Tanya next and be sure to leave us all lots of love. We really appreciate it. 


  1. This is amazing! The layers and colors are all just fantastic. I love the look of the torn honeycomb layer in the background too. And the butterflies on the envelope are perfect!

  2. I got this set so I could try working in more feminine and layering styles...and I'm not sure it's even seen ink ONCE for me :-O Tsk, tsk, and I guess that'll teach me! Thanks for sharing :-D

  3. I really like the yellow in the background- feels so springy! I also really love that you also stamped the envelope!

  4. Such a gorgeous palette of colours, and this would have to be one of my all time favourite sets in the current catalogue <3
