Welcome Spring & a Blissful Card Share

Hi Everyone,
Firstly, I want to apologize for being away so long. I can't believe it is half way through March already and Spring is finally here. 
I am looking forward to posting some of the projects that we have been creating at my classes and workshops recently.  It has been so much fun sharing the excitement of the wonderful new products in the Occasions Mini Catalog and helping people explore their creativity while having fun. 
It actually makes me a little sad to realize there are just 11 more days of Sale-a-bration and then we say goodbye to this wonderful promotion for another year, and the Free Sale-a-bration products I will have to say goodbye to as well. Once April 1st arrives, they will no longer be available, so don't miss out of these amazing free products.
Today I want to share with you a card design that was inspired by another Stampin' Up demonstrator by the name of Linda Higgins. It is created with the Sale-a-bration stamp set Bliss, which you can earn for Free when you place an order of $50 in Stampin' Up products (does not include Shipping & Handling and Taxes).
I created this thank you card last month using Baja Breeze and Very Vanilla Cardstock. The ink I used is Crumb Cake Classic ink and I love the way the three colors compliment each other. As a finishing touch, I used a medium sized pearl from the Basic Pearls pack to accent the butterfly image and the Victoria 5/8" Crochet Trim for a lacey, vintage touch. The background has been embossed using my Big Shot and the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
I just love the stamp images from the Bliss stamp set and the choices they provide. You can use several together as I have in this card, or use the images individually to create your own unique creation.
If you love the romantic, vintage look then you will love this stamp set and like me, will find yourself reaching for it over and over again. That being said, I just couldn't resist remaking this card as a birthday card for a recent card class.
Instead of Baja Breeze, I chose Bashful Blue cardstock to pair with the Very Vanilla cardstock and this time I chose Sahara Sand Classic ink to stamp my images and to sponge the edges.
The beauty of this card design is that you can create your own color combinations and with the Bliss stamp set, you can explore new combinations for a special design of your own.
I hope you have enjoyed today's creative card share and I hope it helps inspire you to create your own amazing projects. Remember, Sale-a-bration ends March 31st, so if you would like to earn the Bliss stamp set or any of the other wonderful Sale-a-bration Free products, contact me to place your order or visit my Online Store to order 24/7. For each $50 in Stampin' Up products you order, you may choose a Free Sale-a-bration product. (Does not include Shipping & Handling or Taxes).
I hope you have a wonderful day.
Until Next Time.
Happy Stamping,
Tricia Butts
