Stampin' Up! Butterfly Basics makes a perfect Spring card

Butterfly Basics

Today felt like the perfect Spring day.  The soft breeze, muted sunlight and very light drizzle on my morning walk with our Australian Shepherd was so refreshing.  The trees and foliage are 50 shades of green with the abundant rains we've had this spring.    I reached for a set that matched my mood this morning, Butterfly Basics.  

I used a Pink Piroutte base card and Pear Pizzazz matting to my Whisper White layer.  I added Rich Razzleberry as my contrasting color and also used it for my sentiment.  This card works well with so many different sentiments and this set includes three very nice sentiments.   However, I chose to use sentiments from two other sets That's the Tag and Tin of Cards. 

I also  use Butterflies Thinlits in two sizes to create the beautiful die cuts for this card.  I used Pink Pirouette again for the larger butterfly and I used vellum for the smaller butterfly and layered them together.  I ran the vellum butterflies through the Gently Falling Embossing folder to add dimension to the vellum paper.  Then I accented the body of the butterfly with Basic Pearls.  The Butterfly Basic set includes additional grunge elements and I stamped that in the lower left corner in So Saffron and the broken line I stamped in Rich Razzleberry.

I waited for the sound of the UPS truck all day, and it finally arrive with my premiere order from the new catalog!  

My wonderful UPS man delivering my Stampin' Up! order.  He's smiling because I'm bouncin gup and down!

One of the benefits of attending OnStage is that Stampin' Up! makes a certain amount of new catalog products available to OnStage attendees to order early.  While demonstrators wait until early May to place their first order and customers can begin placing orders from the new catalog June 1, Stampin' Up! OnStage attendees are already beginning to create sneak peeks at the new colors, stamp sets and wonderful new accessories, punches, and dies. 

Of course I ripped my package open and for you, here's a quick peek inside.  Oh, Oh,  I can't wait to finish this post so I can start playing. (...As she bounces up and down excitedly on her office chair...).

Retiring list items beginning to disappear

Stampin' Up! published the Retiring List so you know what products will disappear May 31 when the new catalog appears.

This is your opportunity to pick up those items left on your wish list or reinkers for retiring In Colors you'll need once these colors disappear.  Some are already gone, so don't delay.  

See the products retiring May 31.

Stampin' Up! also provides an Excel listing for sorting and easier tracking what comes off your stamping shelves.   download the U.S. Retiring list  

If you are a scrapbooker, I think you'll like the prices on the Project Life photo pocket holders on the retiring list.  The Stampin' Up! and Project Life 3-year contract is up, and Stampin' Up! will carry its own photo pocket holders beginning with the new catalog.  You'll be able to continue building out your scrapbooks with similar photo pages from Stampin' Up!.  However, these are great prices on the Project Life Photo Pocket pages that you'll want to stock up on now.

- Stamps will continue to be produced until May 22, and then sold only while they last.

- Accessories will only be available until they sell out and will not be reordered

- Check out the discounted items on the retiring list.  Some up to 50% off.

Take a look at this list and place an order before its too late and your favorite items are goner.
