Honestly I am not much of a butterfly person, but I love this stamp set called Papillon Potpourri and the two butterfly punches that go with it. The larger butterfly punch is called Elegant Butterfly and the smaller one, which is in the Spring Catalog, is called Bitty Butterfly. I used the leaf stamp from Summer Silhouettes and the Just Because stamp from one of the Sale-a-bration sets called Vintage Verses. You can get this set for FREE during the Sale-a-bration event going on now!
I made this card using three products that you can get for free from the 2013 Sale-a-bration catalog. With every $50 purchase in Stampin Up products you can choose an item for free from this catalog. The Designer Series Paper on the bottom of the card is called Sycamore Street. I think it is one of my favorite Designer Series Paper ever. The Summer Starfriut on the top of the card is embossed with a folder called Vine Street and the stamp is from a set called Vintage Versus. Again, all three of these products can be yours for free!
Stampin Up has added two new assortments of “never before seen” single stamps. You can order these stamps until March 31st! I used one of these single stamps in my card today. It is called Basic Label and fits perfectly with one of the Apothecary Accents Framelits. I then used a stamp set from the Sale-a-bration catalog called Vintage Verses. The Designer Series Paper is also from the Sale-a-bration catalog called Sycamore Street. You can get the paper and/or the stamp set for free with an order of $50 for one or $100 for both! Better hurry though. Sale-a-bration is only for a limited time!
This card reminds me of Laura Ashely who uses a lot of small flowery prints. Actually, I am not even sure Laura Ashley is around anymore so I may have been giving you a hint on my age. The Designer Series Paper is called Print Poetry. It is different than most DSP paper because it is 6.5 x 4.5 instead of the usual 12 x 12 paper. I cut out the Summer Starfruit shape using the Labels Collection Framelits. The ovals were cut out with the Oval Collection Framelits. I think the shapes go well together.
The stamp in the middle is a sneak peek from the 2013 Sale-A-Bration (SAB) catalog. As much as I would love to get everything in the brochure, I do have a limit on the amount of money I can spend (believe it or not!). I figured the way around this is to order (for free, by the way) the My Digital Studio SAB disk called One Big Sale-A-Bration 2013 Digital Disk that has everything in the brochure. The stamp is from the set called Vintage Verses. Remember, you can get the disk or the stamp free with a $50 purchase. You can get both with a $100 purchase!
With My Digital Studio 2 you can color stamps! Can you see how I colored the stamp in Marine Mist and then I colored some of the words in Gumball Green and the little swirl around the word “YOU’ in Summer Starfruit. How cool is that?
