Throw Back Thursday and 


Today is my opportunity to use something that I haven't used in a while. I chose 
the beautiful Butterfly Beauty Dies. 
I haven't used them in the best part of a year but I just love them. The dies are so delicate.
Today however, changing the subject, Stampin Up! have released a special purchase of a NEW PDF called Share Sunshine PDF. It is a very special download of printable images and messages that no one can make money from. All of the proceeds, exactly 100%, will go to the Covid 19 charities     The World Health Organization’s COVID-Solidarity Response Fund and United Way Worldwide’s COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery Fund
It cost only 12 USD and has 15 pages of printable images and messages.

The following is from Stampin' Up!

Making a Difference: COVID-19 Product Giveback
Stampin’ Up! is committed to making a difference in our global communities and caring about people first. As part of our Making a Difference program we are offering a product giveback opportunity to support organisations that are helping COVID-19 frontline responders and communities vulnerable to the pandemic.
You and your customers can purchase the Share Sunshine PDF Download and we will donate 100% of the proceeds to COVID-19 efforts.
The Share Sunshine PDF Download is a digital stamp set that’s packed with both light-hearted and heartfelt sentiments and imagery relevant to the unique COVID-19 and social distancing situation we’re currently experiencing–including many ideas that came from you and your customers! You can use the download in your cardmaking and papercrafting projects. Simply print the imagery on cardstock and cut it out using our Paper Trimmer, punches, or dies. Since we are physically distanced from each other, now is a perfect time to share sunshine with our friends and family by sending cards!
Click HERE and it will take you to the place to purchase. 
No demonstrator or company will profit from this purchase, only you. Once paid, you will get an email to download the paperwork. It was so simple, I even managed to do it. If you want to use it again and again, make sure you save it to your pc or tablet etc and you can print as many times as you want for only the one payment.
Anyway here is my card using the messages from the PDF download.

I started with a C6 mat in Whisper White and coloured it in using several shades of pink and red in the watercolour pencils. I only scribbled the pencils across the mat then water brushed it and put it to one side to dry.
Meanwhile, I made a C6 card base and mat in Cherry Cobbler. The mat I embossed with the Country Floral embossing folder then washed a clear Wink Of Stella across the mat. It has given a lovely shimmer to it, I wish I could show it properly!
I completed the card by diecutting the butterflies out of the watercoloured, shades of pink paper. The back of the butterfly was die cut out of Silver foiled card and glued together using Tombow, then raised onto the mat with dimensionals.
Completed with the adding of messages to the front and the inside.

The words are so appropriate at the moment. I'm really pleased that Stampin' Up! have done this.
