Dress up your greeting cards with Butterflies from the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle


  • Butterfly Brilliance Cling Stamp Set
  • Brilliant Wings Dies
  • Last Chance 2020-2021 Annual Catalog Sale Continues until 4 May 2021

With the new Annual Catalog launch on the horizon--coming 4 May 2021,--I'm using up some of my free Sale-A-Bration gifts I earned in January and February.   Today I'm using Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper, A Touch of Ink Stamp Set, and the Corner Bouquet Stamp Set.  I wanted to highlight the Brilliant Butterfly Bundle from the upcoming Annual Catalog, and these items provided the perfect background to show off the detailed images created with the Brilliant Wings Dies.  Brilliant Butterfly Stamp Set and coordinating Dies are an early-release item that you can order now...with the knowledge that these items will remain current for over a full year.   
Butterfly greeting cards with Ombre Designer Series Paper

The basecards for these cards are Rococo Rose, Bermuda Bay, Granny Apply Green and Blackberry Bliss.  Then I used a circle print from the retired Sale-A-Bration Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper for the next layer.  Then a layer of Basic White, and next I used another layer of Oh So Ombre Designer Series paper die cut using Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

The floral image is from the Corner Bouquet Stamp Set, one of the free sets I earned during Sale-A-Bration in January and February.  It is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  TIP:  To get solid coverage of the black floral image, I used my Stamparatus and inked and stamped the floral corner twice.  I love that the Stamparatus perfectly aligns my stamped images.

The sentiments are stamped on a die cut from the Messages Die with Versamark ink and covered with White Stampin' Emboss Powder heat set using the Heat Tool.  The sentiments are from another free stamp set I earned during Sale-A-Bration, called A Touch of Ink.

Then I used all of the large Butterfly dies from the Brilliant Winds Dies.  It includes 6 large butterflies, which I used singly or two smaller on each of these cards.  I die cut them from Basic White cardstock and then mounted the Butterflies on Dimensional before adding them to the card front.  There are also several tiny butterflies in this set which I didn't use on the card front but were perfect for the inside.   These dies are part of the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle which you can order today from the upcoming Annual Stampin' Up! catalog launching 4 May 2021. Yes!  This set of dies and stamp set is an early-release bundle for those of us who just can't wait to get our hands on new items.  See order number for this bundle below.

2020-2021 Annual Catalog Last Chance Sale

The 2020-2021 Annual Catalog Last Chance Sale started 24 March, and runs until 3 May or until items sell out...And many items have already sold out or are running low on quantities.

The Last-Chance Products Sale is still going on before the new 2021-2022 Annual catalog is released to customers on May 4.  This is a great time for you to pick up one or more of these Last-Chance items that is probably on your wish list.  With discounted prices on many items, now is a great time to buy. 

The new 2021-2022 Annual catalog will carry many new items, so that means several of our favorites will retire.  Also, some on the retiring list will remain in the catalog, but reconfigured.  For instance, Tear & Tape is on the retiring list, but it will be included in the new annual Stampin' Up! catalog, reconfigured.  

Also, you'll see many bundles on the Last-Chance list of retiring items.  Many are NOT going away.  Instead, these items will carry over as separate items -- without the 10% savings enjoyed when purchasing them as bundles in the current catalog.  This means, you'll want to pick them up at the bundle pricing -- before 4 May 20201--rather than waiting until the new catalog is release.  

As a reminder: 
  • Select items in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog will be discounted
  • During this promotion, purchasing bundle items separately can sometimes result in a cost savings
  • Note that while some bundles are on the Last Chance list, they will carry over to the next annual catalog as separate items.  Pick them up at Bundle prices now!
  • Retiring items are available while supplies last
  • No minimum purchase is required
  • Many items will sell out fast; check my online store for the most up-to-date listing of available items.  Items that sell out are removed from the on-line store.

These are great deals, so the Last-Chance Products Sale is the perfect time to shop.

Here's where you can download a copy of the complete Last Chance List to mark up your current catalog.  Stampin' Up! just release these revised Last Chance lists, as the original list showed some of the bundles from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog bundles were retiring 3 May 2021, when the bundle price on these stamp and die sets will last through 30 June 2021.

Download the revised Last Chance Lists for the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog today.

See the asterixis at the bottom of the Last Chance Lists you download for a key on reconfigured items, bundles that will carry over as separate items in the upcoming annual catalog, etc.   Take a look at the Last-Chance items, and place your order today.
