Who Is Swinging on the Stars?

I thought between now and the 1st of June we would focus on the retired items.  You can click here to see the entire list:


I want you to think of what is the tool you are using for your project.  Please feel free to case my cards or make the same card.  So not every card I  make will be a composed of all retired products. For example, today’s post is only the greeting.  So enjoy the variety.

Fluttering In With a Sunday Night Challenge

Don’t you love when you get a bonus card idea that is super simple that you are wondering why didn’t I think of it.  Well, this is what I came up with for my Sunday Challenge card. The theme was stripes or butterflies and to me beside flowers, what is more Spring than butterflies.  Stampin’ Up! offers butterflies in stamps, framelits, and thinlits.  What a choice!

DSC_0077 Multi color Butterfly

Now are you wondering how I got these beautiful colors on my butterfly.  No it is not paper. One word Sponge  Daubers. Okay two words.  I used the Pastel Colors to get the multi color effect.  Just stamp your paper with the colors you want and then cut the Butterfly out with the framelit.  Don’t forget to use the Precision Blade with the brush.  It makes life so much easier with the intricate pieces.


Color Combination:  Crushed Curry,  Blushing Bride, and Mint Macaron

Ink:   Crushed Curry,  Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, Archival Black

Stamp: Birthday Blooms

Paper: Whisper White

Designer Paper:  Unknown (retired)

Embellishment: Dimensionals

Accessories: Sponge Daubers, Curly Label (retired), Butterflies Thinlits, Big Shot, Precision Base Plate, Die Brush
