Stampin’ Up! Of Butterflies Thinlits and Thoughtful Banners

Good Monday to y’all!  Hope you’re ready for another week.  Of course, I don’t suppose it matters if we’re ready or not – cuz it’s upon us! 🙂

About a hundred years ago – okay, maybe early 2014 – before I found the joys of Stampin’ Up! products, I was self-educating in the world of card making and stamping.  The earliest product line I discovered was Tim Holtz – and his fabulous vintage/steampunk/grunge look.  Definitely my cup o’ tea!  I indulged in a voracious appetite for his goodies – I stalked the aisles of every hobby supply store in the area.  I bought heaps and gobs and buckets of Tim’s grungy goodness.

And then I found Stampin’ Up! and that was it for me and Tim (I’m sure he’s somewhere wondering where I am and why I left him!).  I put my Tim things away.  And yes, I missed many of them.  Still do.  One little item that I really liked was his word stickers.  Whole sheets of stickers with single words typed on them.  The idea being that you’d stick them on your project to make phrases.  Cool ones – like Dream Big.  Imagine Wishes.  Wish Big Dreams.  Sparkle.  Journey.  I was never very good at combining them.  I stuck to single words.  Wish.  Dream.  Imagine.  Oh – well, that would have been a good combo – where was it when I was trying to make cards?! 😉

When I saw the new Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Thoughtful Banners – I was reminded of my Tim Holtz stickers.  And I saw some card examples where folks had stamped individual words and then cut them out and stuck them on.  Like Ideology stickers (that’s Tim Holtz’s line).  And I wanted to try that.

So – today, I did!

I used the stamp sentiments from Thoughtful Banners (new) and added some Papillon Potpourri and a couple of Butterflies Thinlits and Bold Butterfly Framelits to create….this.  Take a look-see:

I know.  It’s busy.  And kind of hard to see the three butterflies in the picture.  Also – no matter what you see in my oh-so-wonderful pictures, just take my word that there’s no black on the entire card!  It’s all Gold – White – Night of Navy.  I know this because I was playing along with the Can You Case It Color challenge #119:

Stampin’ Up! Swirly Scribbles Thoughtful Banners Hello

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there in Blog-ville!  I hope you all have breakfast in bed (and don’t have to clean the kitchen), get the house cleaned (without having to lift a finger!), and receive flowers and adulation from all who know and love you!

I am fixin’ to hit the cards hard today – I planned that yesterday, and was partially successful.  But…some of the guys wanted to go to lunch….


…what’s a girl to do?  And yes – that’s the exact same meal I had at The Olde Pink House last weekend.  I was oh-so-tempted by…well, everything else on the menu!….but in the end, just couldn’t resist that chicken!!  Yuuuuuuuummmmmmm-oooooo!!

But, I did get one and a half cards made on Saturday – and this is one of them!  It’s using some of the many goodies I received this week in my pre-order.  It was really hard to pick just one thing to use – so I used a couple!  I pulled out the Swirly Bird stamp set and its bundled Thinlits – called Swirly Scribbles and added a sentiment from the Thoughtful Banners bundle as well.  Take a look-see:

Bright, huh!?  I’m loving these new 2016-2018 In Colors.  I wasn’t sure I was going to – and felt the same about the Playful Palette DSP, which you can see peeking out from behind the sentiment panel.  But, boy, was I wrong!  It’s growing on me like gangbusters!
