The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

(Notes about today’s card:  New Product Alert!  On March 2nd,  Stampin’ Up! will be releasing the Butterfly Brilliance Collection.  The collection consists of the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle, coordinating designer series paper, and textured specialty paper.   My card today features three of the fabulous Brilliant Wings dies.  The Blushing Bride designer series paper is also new, and will be available in the upcoming annual catalog.  However, it’s available now by becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator during Sale-A-Bration.)

Don’t you just LOVE this simple and subtle plaid pattern?  It’s one of the 6″ x 6″ patterns coming out when the new Annual Catalog goes live on May 4th. It’s gorgeous in Blushing Bride.  However, what steals the show are the three butterflies, die cut from Silver Foil.  While I used the “Just a Note” sentiment from the Posted for You stamp set, a number of sentiments could be substituted, making this a very versatile layout.

Today’s card is prettier in person.  These metallic butterflies are so difficult to photograph.

January - June Mini CatalogEarn FREE Products during Sale-A-Bration! For every $50 or $100 you spend, you can choose between two purchasing levels of free products. This year, the structure of Sale-A-Bration is different. Instead of one single Sale-A-Bration season, we’ve split the annual Sale-A-Bration event in two!

All of the offerings for the January to February period can be found in the brochure above.
