Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Thanks CAS

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone’s weekend going?  Does anyone have any fun activities planned for today?  What ever you do, I hope you have an enjoyable day.

For today’s card I went outside my comfort zone.  I tried a monochromatic card.  I’m usually all about different colors, not today.  I love this technique and wanted to try it out with some blues.  Here is my card.

I’m playing along with Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #402.  Here is their theme.

I started by inking up my D Clear Acrylic Block starting with Balmy Blue Ink on the top 1/3.  I then inked the center with Seaside Spray Ink and the bottom 1/3 with Misty Moonlight Ink.  Using my Stampin’ Spritzer filled with water, I spritzed the block from about 8″-10″ away 3-4 times.  I stamped a panel of Thick Whisper White cardstock with the block.  Each time you do this technique you get different results, that’s what makes it really awesome.  I let the panel dry for a bit.

I stamped the floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp Set in Seaside Spray Ink in the center of the ink block.  I stamped the butterfly images from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Wishes Cling Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink on either side of the floral image and stamping outside of the ink block.

I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink below the ink block.  I adhered the artwork to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Thanks Photopolymer Stamp Set in Misty Moonlight Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the floral image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the side of the panel.  I stamped the butterfly from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink above the floral image and sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Seaside Spray mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the butterfly images from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Misty Moonlight Ink by the floral image and on 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!!

Stampin’ Up Bird Ballad Laser Cut Butterfly Wishes

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  The 2019-2020 Annual Catalog went live yesterday.  Did everyone start ordering from your wish list?  I placed my order and I should be receiving it this morning.  I can’t wait to start stamping and sharing with you.

For today’s card I used the Bird Ballad Laser Cut Cards.  It’s a nice simple quick and easy card that looks like you took hours to make.  The set of cards that come in this tin would make a perfect gift for someone.  All you have to do is decorate the cards and put them back in the tin.  Tie a ribbon around the tin and you have a beautiful homemade gift. Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper behind the laser cut out of the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Butterfly Wishes Stamp Set in Mossy Meadow Ink on a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I cut the sentiment out using the 3rd smallest Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped 3 of the butterflies from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink.  I punched the butterflies out using the Butterfly Duet Punch and adhered the butterflies to the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped another one of the butterfly images from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink, stamping off 4 times, in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink over the butterfly.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Bird Ballad Laser Cut Card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated one of the envelopes that comes with the Bird Ballad Laser Cut Cards & Tin.  I stamped the flower and butterfly images from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Terracotta Tile Ink on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a piece of Perennial Essence DSP to the envelope flap.  Isn’t the scalloped edge of the envelope beautiful?

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

Stampin’ Up Butterfly Wishes Friendship Card Sneak Peek

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to today’s blog.  How is everyone doing?  We’re past the halfway mark for the week and on our way to a long holiday weekend.  Is anyone making any plans? Anyone going to or having a picnic?  I have a picnic every year celebrating my daughter’s birthday.  She was a Memorial Weekend baby.  This year she will be 21!  I don’t where the years have gone.

For today I have another sneak peek for you.  In case anyone is interested, we only have 12 days till the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog goes live, YAY!!  Is everyone’s wish list as long as mine?  I used the new Stampin’ Up Butterfly Wishes Cling Stamp Set for my card today.  It’s such a beautiful set.  Here’s my card.

I’ve joined in with the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #322.  Here are their colors.

I started with a Thick Whisper White card base and stamped the branch image from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in the top right .  I used my Coastal Cabana, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers to color the stamp in.  This is a great way to get multiple colors on your stamp without having to color the image in.

I then took a panel of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and cut it on a diagonal.  I stamped the bottom with the sentiment from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered the Pumpkin Pie panel to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock I stamped 2 large and 1 small butterflies from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I punched the butterflies out using the Butterfly Duet Punch.  I adhered the butterflies to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and bent their wings up a little.  I added a few Coastal Cabana Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped another one of the butterfly images from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink, stamping off 3 times to get a light image, on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the butterfly image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped a couple of the butterfly images from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set on the envelope front in Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Inks.  I adhered a piece of Daffodil Delight Brights     6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.  There was no DSP used on the card, but I figured since this paper will be retiring as of June 3rd, why not use it.  I also stamped a butterfly from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set on a scrap of Pumpkin Pie cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, punched it out using the Butterfly Duet Punch and adhered it below the envelope flap using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  The Butterfly Wishes stamp set will be available June 4th for purchase.  It’s truely a beautiful set.  I just love the sentiments from it and the fonts.  The Butterfly Duet Punch is available now as part of a bundle with the Stampin’ Up Butterfly Gala Stamp Set or you can purchase it individually.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! has posted their retiring lists for the 2018-19 Annual Catalog and 2019 Occasions Catalog.  Head over to my online store to pick up those retiring items now!  They’re only available while supplies last from now through June 3!

A few notes about the lists:

  • Due to high demand for retiring stamp sets, these items will have guaranteed availability until May 24; all other products are not guaranteed and are available while supplies last only.
  • Order deadline to get the retiring products:  June 3, 2019; 11:50 PM (MT)

Please note, some of the bundle items may be carrying over into the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  However, the bundle pricing will go away, so get them while you can at the discounted price!!

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.

You can download copies of the full retiring lists in PDF Form here:
