Butterflies on Vellum!

Sale-a-bration, Stampin' Up!

One of the new Sale-a-bration products – only available in March with a qualifying order – is  a whole stack of 24 – 6″ x 6″ sheets of printed vellum.  There are 12 different designs, and I chose the butterfly pattern for my first project.  The whole time I was making this, I was thinking of my friend Susan who hates butterflies.  I know! How can you hate butterflies?  It’s like hating sock monkeys.  Oh, wait.  She hates those too.  And clowns, I think.  I’m with her on the clowns.  And if I had butterflies swarming up my nose and in my hair and – well, kind of like The Birds, but with killer butterflies – I might not like them either.  But sock monkeys?  (*shaking head in wonder*)  Fortunately for Susan, there’s not a sock monkey pattern in the vellum stack.

Back to the vellum – you can color on it with Stampin’ Write markers or Blendabilities (if you have them…And I’m sure they’ll be back!).  I used Stampin’ Write markers for mine, and had a blast coloring all the butterflies.  I used too many colors to name.  I didn’t even try to “match” them.  I just grabbed markers from my Many Marvelous Markers box.

I wanted a little dimension, so I added a stamped, punched butterfly from Papillon Potpourri to the center of the card, some Bermuda Bay ribbon and a sentiment from Simply Wonderful – another Sale-a-bration product.

Remember – if you’ve ordered Blendabilities and they’re on backorder, you can exchange them for something else.  I had five sets on backorder from Sale-a-bration, so I was able to exchange them for all four new products (two of the vellum!) instead.  Contact your demonstrator to get it all worked out!

Hope you have a wonderful day!  Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy!

    I love how you added the extra ‘3D’ butterfly, Buffy! Gorgeous card; can’t wait til I receive my order with this vellum. Susan doesn’t like butterflies??!! shakes head I guess she’s not the friend who will receive this card! (I’m with you both on the clowns though. They’re just creepy!!)

      In her defense, she did have them swarm her – and that would creep me out too! We’re talking thousands. Or, at least, hundreds. Or maybe 10. I wasn’t there, but it sounded creepy.

    Of course I have to wait until right before I go to bed to check my email! Now I will have sock monkey butterfly clown nightmares! It will probably last for at least two nights if not more! Good thing IFLY!
