If you’ve been eager for the Butterfly Thinlits to be available to order again, you’ll be glad to know they’re back just in time for Mother’s Day! Here’s a sweet handmade card for Mom that uses the Butterflies Thinlits and Butterfly Basics stamp set, which come bundled at 15% off the price if purchased separately. In addition Stampin’ Up! has a special offer for customers who order the Thinlits or the Bundle between now and April 30th. Details are at the bottom of this post.
What mother wouldn’t be pleased to receive a card with such a beautiful butterfly! The patterned background is a piece of Something Borrowed Designer Series Paper, suggesting a lovely garden for the butterfly to flit around in.
The larger background is subtly stamped tone-on-tone with Sahara Sand Ink, which gives just enough texture to be interesting without detracting from the focal point. The honeycomb stamp is from the Butterfly Basics stamp set, which is available in wood mount, clear mount, and photopolymer. With its variety of stamps you’ll find this to be a very versatile set, which will inspire you to create many different projects! You can see other examples in these posts: Spring Inspiration, Butterfly Bundle, and Size Does Matter.
Butterfly Basics doesn’t have a Happy Mother’s Day stamp, so I used this one from my collection. It’s stamped in Rose Red to match to butterfly’s wings, and helps to draw the eye to the honeycomb background. Then the eye easily moves back to the main attraction, the gorgeous Rose Red and Early Espresso butterfly!
The dock workers’ strike in west coast ports has created chaos across the country for companies trying to keep up with customers’ needs. While the strike appears to have been resolved, the backlog of containers waiting to be unloaded and then put on trucks to take them to their final destinations continues, and who knows how long it will take to get the ports cleared out.
Cardmakers and paper crafters have been faced with a long list of backordered items. Some products, like the Butterflies Thinlits, were made unavailable altogether because it was taking so long to get them back in the warehouse. Stampin’ Up! announced yesterday that the Butterflies Thinlits are finally in stock, and can be ordered again!
To help make it up to customers who would have purchased the Butterly Thinlits and/or Bundle during either Sale-a-Bration or the 5 days of free shipping, Stampin’ Up! has a special offer for you. Between now and April 30th, you can take advantage of one of these options:
- Purchase the Butterflies Thinlits for $21.20, a savings of 15%.
- Get any of the Butterfly Bundles (wood mount, clear mount, or photopolymer) which are already discounted 15%, and you can choose one of three FREE Sale-a-Bration items (while supplies last)!
