Stampin’ Up! Vivid Vases Celebrate Today & An Update On The Butterflies Thinlits Dies!

I used the Stampin’ Up! Vivid Vases and Celebrate Today stamp sets to create my card to share today.  Lots of paper snipping involved with this one…but the little vases are really easy to cut out.  🙂

Vivid Vases - Stamp With Amy K

My card design was inspired by Retrosketches #159.

And the colors for my card were inspired by Fab Friday 61.

Screen Shot 2015-04-09 at 2.16.45 PMI started by stamping the banner images from the Celebrate Today photopolymer stamp set in  Pear Pizzazz ink on a panel of Pear Pizzazz card stock.

Vivid Vases 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the Vivid Vases stamp in StazOn Jet Black Ink on a Whisper White panel.  Then I covered the sentiment with a Post-It Note, inked up the image again in StazOn Jet Black Ink and (with my Stamp-a-ma-jig to help with placement) I stamped the image again on either side of the first image.Vivid Vases 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I colored the flower images with my So Saffron, Soft Sky, Pink Pirouette and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Markers.  I stamped the Vivid Vases image on panels of So Saffron, Soft Sky, Pink Pirouette and Pear Pizzazz DSP from the Subtles DSP Stacks, cut them out with my Paper Snips and adhered them with touches of Multipurpose Liquid Glue over the stamped image on the Whisper White panel.

Vivid Vases 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I adhered the stamped panel to the Pear Pizzazz panel with SNAIL then wrapped a strand of the Soft Sky twine from the Painted Blooms Cotton Twine pack around the panel and tied a little bow.  I adhered the layered panel to a Pink Pirouette card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then added a pearl from the Artisan Embellishment Kit and two pearls from the Pearl Basic Jewels pack to finish the card front.

Vivid Vases 4 - Stamp With Amy K

I covered the sentiment on the Vivid Vases stamp with a Post-It Note again, inked up the image in Pink Pirouette ink and stamped it on a Whisper White panel inside the card.

Update on the Butterflies Thinlits Dies and a Special Offer!!

Stampin’ Up! notified us today that the Butterflies Thinlits Dies should be back in the warehouse and available for ordering around April 15.  They had hoped that the dies would arrive in time for Sale-A-Bration, and when that didn’t happen, they hoped they would be here in time for the Free Shipping promotion.  Unfortunately, that is not going to be the case.

However, they do have a special offer coming up when the dies are back in stock!!  From the day Butterflies Thinlits are again available through April 30, there will be two special offers:

  1. Get the Butterflies Thinlits at a 15 percent discount–just $21.20! (so get the stamp set now while shipping is free and get the dies later at a discounted price!!)
  2. Buy any of the Butterflies Thinlits Bundles at the already-discounted price and choose one of three FREE Sale-A-Bration items (only available while supplies last)!

I know that you’ve all been waiting a long time for the dies to be back in stock…it looks like they will be here very soon!  Let me know if you have any questions.

  1. That’s really pretty, Amy! I have that stamp set and will “borrow” your idea for using it. Thanks!

  2. Lovely project, Amy! I’m always masking off some of them to create a smaller image, but I LOVE that you’ve extended the image by stamping it again. Your work is always amazing! Thanks for playing along with our color challenge at FabFriday.

  3. Amy, you always amaze me with your designs! I really like the way you gave us lots of the beautiful vases and the detail on every one, sooo cool 🙂 The surprise on your card, that totally worked, is the flag banner at the top, it added just the right detail to the top. Brilliant Amy 😉

    • Thanks Mary! I’m glad that I could “help” you with your collection today. 😉 Bummer about shipping everything back home, but at least you have it in your hotel to play with! 🙂
