Good morning, ya’ll!  I hope that you had a wonderful Easter with your families and friends!  I have a super easy, super quick card to share with you today – but, first, I wanted to take a hot second to remind you of one of the biggest benefits available to you during Sale-A-Bration.  And that’s the extra bonus money you have to spend on the world’s best bundled kit – the Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit!  You already know that when you sign up as a Demonstrator – whether you want to do this as a business or as a Hobby Demo (either way you get 20% off everything you order! ) – you get $125 worth of great SU! product for your investment of $99.

But.  When you sign up during Sale-A-Bration – Stampin’ Up! is going to give you an EXTRA $30 worth of FREE goodies.

And you get to pick all $155 worth of product.  No “Starter Packages” for us – you pick what you want! 🙂

So – if you have any interest whatsoever in joining Stampin’ Up! – now is the absolutely best time to do it.

And – there are some other great bennies that happen during Sale-A-Bration.  Check those out here.

This has been a message from your friendly neighborhood Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator.  We’ll now return you to our regularly scheduled blog post! 😉

I wanted a quick and easy Clean and Simple Card.  So, I pulled out the Sheltering Tree swath image, a few pretty blue ink pads, and the Bold Butterfly Framelits.  And this is what I came up with.  Take a look-see:

Blue Bold Butterflies 4 - Stamps-N-Lingers

This one’s so easy I bet you can already see how I did it, can’t you?  Well, just in case…

I used Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise and Island Indigo.  The Sheltering Tree set is photopolymer, so it’s easy to line things up even without the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.  I used a panel of Whisper White – and before I started stamping, I laid the small Bold Butterfly Framelit on the card to just sort of eyeball where to line everything up.  Then I stamped the three images in their respective colors.

Next, I laid the Bold Butterfly Framelit across the stamped image and ran it thru the Big Shot to cut it out.  Then I repeated that on the second color swath.  And then…well, one more time! 🙂

Then I SNAILd the cut and stamped panel to another identically sized panel of Whisper White.  Using small dabs of Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue, I adhered the butterflies back into the their colored spots – just using the glue on the bodies of the butterflies, so their little wings could stick up.

Blue Bold Butterflies 2 - Stamps-N-Lingers

I SNAILd the panel to a Tempting Turquoise mat and then added a line of 4 Pearl Basic Jewels to each butterfly.  And the card front was done!

For the inside, I matted another piece of Whisper White on Tempting Turquoise.  Then I stamped the sentiment from Sheltering Tree in Basic Black Archival Ink in the center of the panel.  Over that, I stamped the Sheltering Tree swatch again – in Tempting Turquoise.  I stamped the image off once on scrap paper before I stamped over the sentiment.

Blue Bold Butterflies 5 - Stamps-N-Lingers

I SNAILd the panel into a Whisper White card base and popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

The envelope is equally simple.  I repeated the Sheltering Tree swath image on the front of a Whisper White Medium Envelope – repeating the color progression that I’d used in the card:  Pool Party on the bottom, then Tempting Turquoise and finally Island Indigo…

…and then I added a liner from the striped Tempting Turquoise pattern in the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack, cut with my Envelope Liner Framelits.

Blue Bold Butterflies 7 - Stamps-N-Lingers

Et Voila!  How simple is that!?  And how many different ways could you make this card?  Maybe you could use purples, or yellows, or greens…  Use a different sentiment inside – Sheltering Tree has “Thinking of You”, “Thankful for You”, “You Warm My Heart” – any of which could work in this kind of card.  Have fun with it! 🙂

Just in case you were wondering, my Ordering Special (DOUBLE Peppermint reward points AND a Mystery Gift!) ends with the end of Sale-A-Bration on Thursday.  So…. you know what to do!
