The theme this month is...'Spring has Sprung'
Spring time is a time to clean up and clear out right? But for us...because of the Harvey Flood we don't have much to clear out - however Stampin' Up! have published their retiring list - and so I do have to clear out the box I have my stamps stacked in at the moment...and I got a bit of a shock! Lots of my favorite sets are going - but, as I have learnt in the last few months, that means there is room for new. It's time to embrace change and move on to the New 2018-19 catalog! Yes - I have it in my hands and I am so excited by a lot of what's inside it. If you want a new catalog - please complete the registration at the bottom of the page.
So, my 'Spring has Sprung' card and project uses an old/retiring stamp set and LOTS of new stuff!! My preorder arrived and has been sitting at the bottom of the stairs screaming at me each time I pass and since my boss gave me a day off today - time to open up and play.
I am sad to see Watercolor Wings Stamp Set going :( It is a great set and now that I have a Stamparatus it's so easy to repeat stamp! Anyway - I used it today along with the NEW 2018-20 IN-COLORS. Can you believe we are saying 2020 already??!!
For the butterfly I used a base of Pineapple Punch, then the wing edges are Grapefruit Grove, and then the inner wing and spots are Lovely Lipstick. I added some Blueberry Bushel on the body and a strip in the background as well as the sentiment, then Call Me Clover leaf.
Along with the new In-colors I used the new Detailed Trio Corner Punch, Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and the Pearlised Doilies.
