I'm feeling Spring-y, how about you? While I had the Beauty Abounds stamp set out last weekend I put together another card, this time with some fresh Spring colors!
The large and small bubble clusters (for lack of a better description) in this stamp set makes custom backgrounds so easy! I used Petal Pink, So Saffron, and Highland Heather stamped randomly on a piece of cardstock.
The floral swirl was stamped in Mossy Meadow, then the leaves were colored with the Light Mossy Meadow Stampin' Blends and the blossoms with Light Calypso Coral. The greeting was also stamped in Mossy Meadow and after die cutting, it was adhered to a So Saffron piece punched with the Story Label Punch. A piece of Whisper White Flax and Gorgeous Grape Striped Mini Ribbon completed the card.
I don't know if you are aware of the fine print on the back of the Stampin' Up! catalogs that says "Product availability may be limited toward the end of the catalog sales period." While the stamps and ink pads are manufactured here in the United States by Stampin' Up! many, if not most, of the other products are imported. This can create supply issues, especially when items are much more popular than they were forecast to be. Some of the Sale-a-Bration freebies are sold out, as well as some of the SAB Coordination items, and already some things in the Occasions catalog!
To make a long story short (I know...too late!), if there is something you really want when a new seasonal catalog or SAB flyer comes out, don't wait and figure you'll save it for later. It may not be available when you want it.
