Stamparatus Circle with Butterfly Basics and Lift Me up

This is a Stamparatus project, using a template (see link below)
 to create a circle card.  I've had a modicum of success, but
I think I will consider using images as the "wreath"
rather than sentiments.  From other samples of the 
wreath technique, it might be easier to line up images!

In this example, I paired the sentiment from 
the retiring Butterfly Basics
(annual p 149) with the Lift Me Up stamp set (p 58)
and Up & Away Thinlits (p 216).

For more information and the directions for making
this template, check this video out.

Bird Banter on Tranquil Tulip Leaves

It's been a while since I posted some birds, specifically
Bird Banter.  I still like the look of the birds perched on
leaves from the Tranquil Tulips hostess set (annual p 223).
  I colored the birds with Stampin' Blends, which
should be available in the upcoming new Stampin' Up! catalog.

Work of Art with Flower Shop

Two of my favorite retiring sets are Work of Art (p 151)
and Flower Shop (p 28) with coordinating Pansy Punch
(p 207).  I love the whimsy of these two sets, which
go very well together.  Here is another example that
combines these two products.  

For this example, the retiring Flirty Flamingo In Color
was used liberally.  Leaves were created with the 
Layered Leaves 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions
Embossing Folder and Leaf Punch from the Holiday Catalog.
