Sneak Peek at the Springtime Impressions Butterfly thinlit from Stampin' Up!

Butterfly from Springtime Impressions

More of my demonstrator pre-release order arrived today.  I didn't even bother unpacking everything.  As soon as I found this butterfly thinlit, from the Springtime Impressions Thinlit set, I started looking for papers that would compliment this new butterfly. I'm such a sucker for butterflies.    

I'm using this new butterfly with the pre-release Share What You Love bundle that includes the Do What You Love stamp set and the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. This is part of the early-release Share What you love bundles that customers can order from the new catalog prior to catalog release, June 1.     

I looked at the colors in the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and my first selection for a base card was Rich Razzelberry.  However, It just wasn't bright enough with the Pool Party background in the print.  The colors in the flowers ended up looking better with the Berry Burst basecard.  Then I selected a layer of Tranquil Tide and then a layer of Pool Party and Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.

I use the Layered Leaves Embossing folder to dry emboss the Pool Party Layer.


Share What You Love early Release budles

I added a 1/2" Berry Burst Finely Woven ribbon between the two layers.  This is such a nice, flat ribbon.  However, a 1/2" strip of cardstock would work equally well, since this is one of the ribbons retiring at the end of this month.  The good news is that this ribbon is on sale on the Last-Chance list.  Since Berry Burst cardstock will carry over to the new catalog, this is an opportunity to get coordinating ribbons at a pretty significant savings.

The butterfly was cut from Pool Party cardstock using the new Springtime Expression Thinlits.  This is a sneak peek of this butterfly as this die will not be available until the new catalog release on June 1.   I used the Precision Base Plate to ensure this detailed butterfly cut evenly.  Then I used the Big Shot Die Brush to easily remove the chads from the die.   



The sentiment is from the Do What You Love Stamp Set stamped on Very Vanilla with Tranquil Tide ink.  The sentiment is cut using Layering Ovals and the Very Vanilla layer is matted with a scalloped oval layer of Tranquil Tide,

More savings announced on some retiring products

Several retiring items have new discounts Stampin' Up! added in the past week.  To view all of the retiring products, visit my online store.  This is your best source to see if the products you want are still available.  As items sell out, they will no longer be listed in my online store.

Download the Last-Chance Product Lists and start your craft room clean up to remove your retired items so you have room for your purchases from the new catalog.  You'll likely want to place an order for any remaining items on your Wish List before they're gone, May 31.  

It's also a good idea to stock up on reinkers for your old-style stamp pads, to pick up a pack or two of your favorite, retiring cardstock, and to add a roll of retiring ribbon to match your retiring Designer Series Papers.

While most items are only available until they sell out, retiring stamp sets will be available until May 25.
