A card for Spring is what I have today.  Flowers, birds and a sweet sentiment.  I am trying to use my designer series paper that will be retiring.  Plus, I love the springtime feel of this Daisy Delight DSP.


Flying Home, 145929


I adore this stamp set, Flying Home, and am sad to see it retiring.  I have used it several times, but this is the first time I have focused on the birds and nest.  The sentiment is from Ribbon of Courage stamp set.  I thought it went well with the Mama Bird and her babies.

As I mentioned in the beginning, I love this DSP but I also wanted to give the card some more texture.  I looped Linen Thread under the bird’s nest and then a loop of Burlap Ribbon comes from beneath the sentiment.  It gives some depth and texture and plays off of the nest.  I am trying to expand on my normal cards a bit.

Thank you so much for visiting today!  I greatly appreciate your visits and comments.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

The retired lists are in the two links below.  Remember that quite often the retiring colors sell out before the end of the catalog.  Especially now that there is a Color Revamp there are more colors retiring.  And please let me know if you need the upcoming catalog.  I will be happy to send you one once they are available.

Another Paper Pumpkin Special:  The March PP was so popular due to the special gift that it sold out.  So Stampin’ Up! has offered a great deal to replace that.  New Subscribers who sign up before April 10, will receive April and May for half price.  So 2 months for the price of 1.  A great deal.  Use my link HERE, and enter the code: SAVEFIFTY0418


It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I would love to have you join my team.  A great perk for demonstrators this time of year is getting to see the new catalog first.  Then we get to order and play with the new products a month early.  For me, that is one of the best parts of being a SU Demonstrator.  Of course, the discount helps!  If you are interested, please contact me and let’s talk.
