Project Sheet Tuesday

You can find the WILDLY HAPPY stamp set (#149408, $21.00) on page 98 in Stampin' Up!'s annual catalog and it is retiring soon.  The set consists of four sets of darling animals ~ these pandas, an elephant mom and baby, a mama fox and her baby and a mother bunny and her baby.  Also, five sentiments.  I remember that my friend, and team member, Denise Caudron said it is the perfect stamp set to use when a family adopts.  She knows ~ she and her husband have a lovely adopted daughter.  This is an easy card so print off the PDF and enjoy!



Woven Heirlooms by Stampin' Up!


You can find this lovely stamp set on page 119 in Stampin' Up!'s  2020-21 Annual Catalog.  It is retiring soon with sentiments that we all need in our collection ~ besides the one above ~ 'Wishing you a day of love and joy', 'Thinking of you', 'Thank you so much' and 'I love you".  The set is WOVEN HEIRLOOMS (#149306, $24) and includes beautiful small antique design images.  Here's another sample for you ~

This 'Product Medley' (card kit deluxe on page 9 in the catalog) has been very popular this year.  Why?  I think it is the combination of DSP, the stamp set and dies and loads of embellishments!  There is also a REFILL KIT available and, right now, it is priced at 40% OFF or $13.80.  So, if you have that stamp set you may want to invest in the refill kit which includes 48 sheets of the DSP, 6 sheets of Very Vanilla embossed paper, 6 sheets of die cuts and 40 paper flowers!

Posted For You Retiring


This BUNDLE is on page 81 in the Annual Catalog and is retiring.  The Bundle includes the stamp set, Posted For You, and the Rectangular Postage Stamp punch.  The punch is not retiring (page 168 in the catalog) but the stamp set is ~ it's a sweet set and so easy to use!

Ornate Garden Suite Retiring

The Ornate Garden Suite (page 64 in the Annual Catalog) is on the retiring list (actually, all Suites are on that list ~ as Suites).  Fortunately, as the 'Suite' retires, parts of it are 'saved'!  The stamp set, ORNATE THANKS, will be in the next catalog but the pretty DSP on this card will be gone soon.  And, the other stamp set in the Suite, ORNATE STYLE, is retiring.

Butterfly Shadow Box

This is the Butterfly Shadow Box that I made yesterday.

IMG_5953 (2)I used one of the sheets of designer series paper ( 6" x 6", Butterfly Bijou, #156824), the one that the design matches the die.  I also cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock 6 1/2" x 6 1/2".

IMG_5956 (2)This die ( one of twelve dies in the Brilliant Wings Dies), fits the paper perfectly and cuts out the six butterflies with one pass through the new Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine (#149653).

One little butterfly remains on the paper ~ held by a small piece of washi tape to secure the die.

I took each one of the butterflies and curled their wings with my bone folder.  Then I added a Dimensional under the body &  added some Wink of Stella.  I glued the DSP that I cut with the die to my Basic Black square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (#110755) which allows some movement to get your margins just right.  The easy peasy part is matching each butterfly to it's previous location and adhering with the Dimensionals.  Done.  Easy Peasy.  Questions?
