Sheer Perfection Butterfly…

First day of Spring!!!  Are you dancing a jig or shoveling snow?

Isn’t it amazing how erratic the weather is this time of year when we are all so tired of winter cold?

But because we are stampers and creators of beautiful things our weather is always on the sunny side…

Today’s post is such a cutie and came together so easily…let me show you…


Blushing Bride sponged newsprint covered in pretty spring/summer butterflies.  It will be disappointing if Stampin’ Up! doesn’t continue with this stamped vellum…it’s gorgeous plain or colored.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  3 1/2″ x 5″ Whisper White Notecard, Typeset DSP, Basic Black cardstock and Sheer Perfection Vellum Stack FREE with SAB order.
