For today’s card, I brought back a few of my favorite products that have retired. Normally, I resist using retired products, because I want you to be able to order what you see. But, Stampin’ Up! announced a “Clearance Refresh” yesterday, which means additional products have been discounted, including some on today’s card. They are the first five products listed below, and clicking on the pictures should show you the reduced price. If this doesn’t work, click on my “shop” button, and go to “clearance” under “Sales & Specials.” This will show you the entire list. Also, beware, because hot items will sell quickly.
I began with the Butterfly Duet Punch, punching three butterflies from Brights 6X6 Designer Paper in three colors: Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, and Flirty Flamingo.
The butterflies needed a background, so I stamped trees from the Welcoming Woods Stamp Set, in Soft Suede Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then, I used a plain Layering Circles Die for cutting. I layered this circle of trees on Love You Always Foil in Sahara Sand, cut with a slightly larger, scalloped circle. Welcoming Woods is a Last Chance Product that is a favorite of mine, but is not discounted.
Beneath the circle is Basic White Cardstock, 4″ X 5 1/4″, embossed with an all-time favorite, the Subtle Embossing Folder. Yes, it’s subtle, not over-powering, and provides just the right amount of texture for many cards. After embossing, I glued the layer to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.
“You’re amazing” is from the current stamp set, Ornate Thanks, stamped in Early Espresso Ink, cut with a Beautiful Trees Die, and glued to the circle.
After attaching the circle with Dimensionals, and gluing the butterflies, I gave each butterfly a Whale of a Time Sequin.
I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketeches.
