Today I'm excited to be hopping with the Australian girls from the Artisan Design Team. We are having a South Pacific Blog Hop and are showcasing projects from the Gingham Gala suite. The gorgeous projects my talented friends have created will totally inspire you! 

There are five light, fresh colours in classic gingham checks in the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper - Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather and Lemon Lime Twist. As I wanted to use all the colours these little 7.6cm x 7.6cm (3" x 3") note cards seemed a great way to do it!
The butterflies from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set have been white embossed onto vellum paper and punched out with the co-ordinating Butterfly Duet Punch.

I've layered them onto a square of Shimmery White Cardstock that has been watercoloured with the co-ordinating ink and cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I also splattered from Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and added some water splodges!

The butterflies have also been adhered to swirls of Whisper White Solid Baker's Twine. I split the twine up to create thinner threads.
"For You" from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set has been white embossed on Basic Black Cardstock and given a lift with Dimensionals.

And finally, the black enamel dots are from the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots which I've coloured black with a Sharpie.
Due to the popularity of this set stocks are getting low so order now to avoid having to wait till more become available! Live in New Zealand please click on my "Shop Now" link above if you'd like to order these directly or email me on - I'd love to be your demonstrator!

Next on the hop is my lovely talented friend Tanya - you'll love her stunning cards! And please take time to follow the hop -  you won't want to miss any!
