Painted Petals Gift Set

Painted Petals gift set-1

I decided I wanted to pamper my stamp clubs this month and have them make a gift set featuring the Painted Petals products in the Occasions Catalogue.  I fell in love with this set in January while I was attending the Leadership Conference and knew I was going to demonstrate it to all my stamping friends.  I am especially in love with the roses!!

I was inspired to create this gift set when I saw some wonderful sets that fellow demonstrator Chiaki Haverstick is making.  Her bags are much larger than mine, but mine still fits three cards and envelopes  beautifully.

Supplies used:

Stamps – Painted Petals

Ink & Paper – Painted Blooms DSP, Rose Red, Rich Razzleberry, Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black

Accessories – Scallop Edge punch, Big Shot & Oval framelits, flower punch, pearl accents, white seam binding, antique brads, white chalk marker, dimensionals

There are some great Stampin’ Up! products for sale this week –

Butterfly Thinlits Special Offer!

April 13th, 2015 | Comments (0)

Special Announcement from Stampin’ Up!:

Like you, we sincerely hoped that the Butterflies Thinlits Dies would arrive in time for Sale-A-Bration, and when that didn’t happen, again like you, we hoped they would be here in time for our Free Shipping promotion. Unfortunately, that was not the case.

Originally they were scheduled to arrive by April 8; we then received notification from our supplier that although the ship had reached the west coast port, the container containing the Thinlits was still on the ship. We have since received verification from a third party that the vessel is still in the port–and though it docked on Friday, April 3, the container with the Thinlits has yet to be pulled.

Because the container has yet to be discharged from the vessel, the soonest the Butterflies Thinlits will arrive in our warehouse is the beginning of the week of April 13; our best estimate for orderability, based on this information, is April 15.

We realize you may be disappointed you were not able to purchase the Thinlits in time to receive Sale-A-Bration rewards–especially in the discounted bundles. Therefore, from the day Butterflies Thinlits are again available through April 30, we are bringing you two special offers:

  1. Get the Butterflies Thinlits at a 15 percent discount–just $26.30!


2. Buy any of the Butterflies Thinlits Bundles at the already-discounted price and choose one of three FREE Sale-A-Bration items (available while supplies last)!

Butterfly Thinlits Bundles

* Wood mount 139322 $76.25

* Clear mount 139323 $63.50

* Photopolymer mount 138865 $51.75

Stampin’ Up! is kinda awesome!

Beautiful Butterfly

Butterfly Basics sample-1

I was lucky enough to have a girlfriend come and stamp with me last month and she brought her Butterfly Basics bundle.  I don’t have either the stamp set or butterfly thinlits dies and it’s always fun to work with supplies I don’t have myself.  I couldn’t resist cutting a butterfly for myself!

After I cut the butterfly from Hello Honey cardstock, I ran the edges on top of the Versamark pad and then covered the inked edges with gold embossing powder.  

Supplies used:

Stamps – Butterfly Basics

Ink & Paper – Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey, Old Olive, Whisper White

Accessories – Big Shot & Butterflies Thinlits, Versamark & gold emboss powder, gold 1/8″  taffeta ribbon

Nature's Perfection sample-4

It’s so easy to change out the colors and greeting on this card to make it work for what you may need.  I am in need of a baby girl card this week, so that’s what mine became! :)

I started with the circle framelits and Big Shot cutting out  a larger circle from the cardfront and a smaller circle of white and the Sheer Perfection Vellum paper.  I colored the back of the vellum circle with my Pink Pirouette marker and then adhered it to the white circle.  I then attached that to the cardfront with dimensionals inside the large circle space.

The Sheer Perfection Vellum papers are so beautiful – there are 12 days to order it before Sale-A-Bration is over for this year!!!

Place your Sale-A-Bration order HERE

Supplies used:

Stamps – Nature’s Perfection, Celebrate Baby

Ink & Paper – Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Sheer Perfection Vellum

Accessories – Big Shot, circle framelits, rhinestone gems, butterfly punch, dimensionals
