Kylie Bertucci's Monthly International Blog Highlights April 2021

Welcome to Kylie Bertucci's Monthly International Blog Highlights for April as we share our card ideas with the theme of Thank You. You will have the opportunity to visit talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their amazing card designs to help inspire you. 
Today's card design features some of my favorite retiring products from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. I love the Butterfly Gala stamp set (item #148580) and the coordinating Butterfly Duet Punch (item #148523) for creating Spring themed cards and I chose to use one of the designs from the Playing With Patterns 6"x6" Designer Series Paper (item #152490) to create this pretty Thank You card. There were so many beautiful patterns to choose from that would work well with this stamp set and punch to create a variety of cards for all occasions.

This clean and simple card design works well for a variety of occasions and is easy to create. The stamp images in this stamp set are easy to line up and punch out and there are wonderful sentiments to choose from. I colored the large butterfly image with both the Light and Dark Calypso and Light and Dark Mango Melody Stampin' Blends Markers and for the two smaller butterflies I used just the Mango Melody Stampin' Blends Combo Pack. I added Basic Rhinestones for a touch of bling and the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon adds a pretty soft touch to the design. These retiring products are only available while supplies last or until May 3rd, 2021, so now is the perfect time to order them and add them to your collection.
