Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala Incredible Like You

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has you week started off?

For today I have, what I call a Peek-A-Boo card.  It’s a lot easier than it looks to make.  I used the Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala Bundle and the Stampin’ Up Incredible Like You Stamp Set.  Here’s my card.

See how the sentiment peeks through the window.  I joined in with Just Add Ink color challenge #454.  I have to admit I am not a huge fan of yellows, but once I put it on the card, I really liked it  Here are their colors.

I started by using my Big Shot and the 2nd largest square from the Layering Squares Framelits Dies and placed it near the top of the Pineapple Punch 2018-2020 In-Colors Designer Series Paper and cut it out.

I placed the cut DSP on top of the Blueberry Bushel card base and centered it.  I took the 4th largest scalloped square from the Layering Squares Framelits Dies and ran it through my Big Shot to cut the opening in the card base.  I wrapped a piece of the Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the DSP and tied a knot.  I adhered the DSP to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I placed a Whisper White panel inside the card base and stamped the sentiment from the Incredible Like You stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink so that it was centered through the window.

On a piece of scrap Whisper White cardstock I stamped one of the butterfly images from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink.  I stamped the top wings of the butterfly in Pineapple Punch Ink.  I then punched the 4 butterflies (2 large and 2 small) out using the Butterfly Duet Punch.  I adhered the 2 larger butterflies to the window opening of the card front so that they hung over inside the window, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I also added a few of the Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

I adhered the stamped Whisper White panel to the inside of the Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the 2 smaller butterflies by the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the larger butterfly from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in Blueberry Bushel and Pineapple Punch Inks on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of the Pineapple Punch 2018-2020 In-Colors 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

Just a reminder that if you are wanting the Butterfly Gala Bundle, now is the time to get it.  The stamp set and the punch will be available in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, but not with the bundle discount.  Also, the Incredible Like You stamp set will be retiring as of June 3rd, so if it’s something you’ve been wanting, now’s the time.

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Here is the list of stamp sets that WILL be in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  The stamp sets on this list will not be retiring, they will simply be transitioned to Cling Mount moving forward:

  • Accented Blooms
  • Animal Outing
