Basically a Beautiful Butterfly Promotion

Have you longingly been waiting for items from the Occasion catalog that have been on backorder?  Have you looked at the Butterfly Thinlits and thought "Beautiful, but look at all those holes to punch out?"  Do you want something pretty that is on sale until April 30th?

I will be featuring projects using the Butterfly Basics stamp set and the Butterfly Thinlits over the next few days.  This stamp set is very versatile, a great set for Spring, and fun to play with. Tomorrow's sample uses the same set of supplies as the cards below!  And, if you ever wanted to know, these are the types of cards I do at my stamp camps!  :)

Through April 30th, you can take advantage of either of these options:
  1. Get the Butterflies Thinlits at a 15 percent discount--just $21.20!
  2. Buy any of the Butterflies Thinlits Bundles--already discounted 15 percent--and choose one of three FREE Sale-A-Bration items (only available while supplies last)!
  • Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper (item 138633)
  • Best Year Ever Accessory Pack (item 138634)
  • Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper (item 138635)
The bundle is available in photopolymer, clear mount, or wood!

Check out these options at my online store: http://www.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=80380.  Please use hostess code VKFQ3UWJ when checking out.

Today's card is one of my favorite's that I've designed.  The first one features the big pearls from the Artisan Embellishment Kit that is not currently available for order. 


So I substituted the postage stamp from the Butterfly Basics set and viola, beautiful! It also utilizes the Daydream Medallions set for the background that is retiring.  Figures.... just when I find a great way to utilize it, right?  :)



Supplies:
  • Cardstock/DSP: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Blackberry Bliss
  • Ink: Blackberry Bliss
  • Stamp Set: Butterfly Basics, Daydream Medallions
  • Accessories: Big Shot, Magnetic Platform and Mats, Butterfly Thinlits, 3/4 Circle Punch, Dimensionals
Instructions:
  • Stamp the largest two medallions on the piece of Very Vanilla using Crumb Cake. 
  • Stamp Wishes at the bottom in Blackberry Bliss.
  • Layer the butterfly on the card using dimensionals behind the body.
  • Stamp the postage stamp on the corner of the small scrap of Vanilla.  Punch out using the 3/4 circle punch and layer on the center of the butterfly using a dimensional.
