Wednesday Wishes

Hi Stamping Friends!

I've got a little bit of "wow" to make your Wednesday a bit more fun.  As many of you know, the Butterfly Thinlits cannot be ordered at this time.  Once Stampin'Up! is able to get a new supply, the item number will be turned back on and that will make a lot of people very happy.  Today I want to show you that you can still make a great card with the Butterfly Basics stamp set, even though you don't have the matching thinlets.

Take a look and you'll see what I mean...

This pretty birthday card is almost a "one-layer wonder." except for the butterflies that are popped up off the surface.  Instead of cutting out the stamped butterfly with the matching thinlit, I simply cut it out with scissors, then added a punched butterfly on top, using the small butterfly punch.  The three little pearls are like the cherry on top.
Here's a quick list of what I used:

Stamps:  Butterfly Basics
               Gorgeous Grunge (for the little dots)
Ink:  Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Crumb Cake
Paper:  Blackberry Bliss, Very Vanilla
Accessories:  Basic Pearls, sponge, glue dots, dimensionals, small butterfly punch. corner rounder punch

 I hope you can see that you can make a pretty card with this set, even though you don't have the butterfly framelits.  Hopefully they'll be back soon, but meanwhile, with a quick change in the sentiment, I plan on using this set for all sorts of occasions... thinking of you, get well, and sympathy are just a few that come to mind.  It could even make a great Mother's Day or Easter card.  

Are you feeling the need to go stamp something?  I hope so!
Please come back on Friday for another classic card.
Hugs and happiness,
