Color Theory Butterfly Basics


This stamp set and dies are another favorite that I'm going to have a hard time saying goodbye to when it retires on May 31st.  Butterfly Wishes is a go-to stamp set for me.  I love the fonts on the sentiment stamps.  The flower stamp is beautiful watercolored and used as a focal image.  EDIT: The Butterflies Thinlits have sold out since I scheduled this post.


The Color Theory DSP stack is another one that I will miss. I love the bright colors and the subtle designs are perfect to use for backgrounds.  On these cards I used one the the prints and stamped images from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set to add to the background.


The other retiring products used on these cards is Dapper Denim ink and cardstock and the Glitter Enamel Dots.  These retiring products are only available while supplies last and will then disappear forever!

Party Hat Birthday for Audrey


Today is my niece's second birthday. I want to share the card I made for her.  I used the Party Hat Birthday bundle from the Occasions Catalog to create this shaker card.  I'm really happy with how it turned out.  The Party Hat bundle, stamp, and dies will retire on May 31st.  The dies and bundle are available only while supplies last so be sure to order yours before it is too late!


My color combo is Powder Pink and Coastal Cabana.  Coastal Cabana is one of the retired in-colors  that will be returning as part of Stampin' Uo!'s Color Revamp in June.  I'm happy to see this one come back.  It works great in the Brights collection but also mixes well with most of the colors in the Subtles. 
Here are all six of the retired In Colors that will be making a comeback in June:

Flower Shop: Last Chance!


As the time to say goodbye to some of my favorites products is approaching, I've been sorting through my collection, pulling out the retiring products and making room for the new.  Over the next few weeks, I will be sharing with you a lot of projects made with some of these items.

This card uses the retiring Flower Shop stamp set.  This set and it's coordinating Pansy Punch were a big hit when they were released.  Unfortunately both the stamp set and the punch will be retiring.  The punch is only available while supplies last.  All of the retiring stamp sets are guaranteed to be available until May 25th. After that time they are available only while supplies last.  EDIT: Since scheduling this post the Pansy Punch has sold out.

This card features one of the retiring colors: Rose Red.  As much as I love this color, I must not use if very often.  As I was assembling this card I realized the Rose Red layer was cut from a scrap of textured cardstock I had mixed in my stash.  The textured cardstock was retired shortly after I first joined Stampin' Up! almost ten years ago!
