The Creative Flow Blog Hop – Pretty Pines Animal Challenge


Thank you for joining us on our Creative Flow Blog Hop. Each month we are set a challenge to creatively stretch our imaginations. The products we have used are all available in the current Annual and/or seasonal Stampin’ Up!® catalogues. To hop along, please use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping. 

For this month’s challenge we have made foam stamps from the pretty pines thinlits dies. The idea to make an animal from the set came from a fellow demonstrator, Jerim (WillowPiggy) who made a koala card with hers.


My idea for this card came from the pine needle branches – they reminded me of long peacock feathers and I hoped using the pinecones on the end would look like the feather eyes.

I’m really pleased how this turned out. I got really messy fingers from the ink, but I don’t mind that 🙂

Thank you for joining us today, please use the buttons below to continue hopping.

Product List


Don’t forget to check out our online deals this week – up to 40% off!


Hostess Code Club – do you like free gifts?

All orders over £25 (before shipping & handling) & using this month’s Hostess Code at checkout will receive a Hostess Gift from me. If your order is over £150, please do not use this code – you can claim your own Stampin’ Rewards.
All online orders under £150 will collect Stampin’ Rewards (free product) throughout the month. Your order is processed as normal, with it being delivered to your house as usual, so nothing changes there. But, at the end of the month, I close off the code and work out how many people have placed orders and divide the total Stampin’ Rewards between them all, making sure that everyone has exactly the same products.

However, the more people who join the code, the higher the rewards go because everyone is pulling together towards a common goal!

This month’s code can be found at the top right of this page or on the home page
