Saying Goodbye to the Butterfly

I'm back! See, told you I'd be back before 3 weeks this time ;) A few days ago, SU! released the list of stamp sets that are retiring. You can find them here: Retiring Stamps. I must say, they were pretty cutthroat this year and are retiring many, many stamp sets! But it was needed. Absolutely needed. There were SOOO many stamp sets in the cattie that have been around for a very long time and a change is definitely needed. Of course, there are a few stamp sets that I will miss. I've used one of them on my card for this week's Mojo Monday Challenge: Butterfly Prints.

The Flight of the Butterfly stamp set is also retiring so I wonder if that means that the Butterfly Punch is retiring? I sure hope not but if it does, I know that SU! will replace it with something EVEN better :) They always do!

Tips & Tricks:
*A good example of the something new and even better that SU! will replace retiring products with is the Summer Smoches Product Suite. It is available this month as a special promo, as well as in the new catalgoue June 1st.
*One thing I love about the Butterfly Punch is the fantastic 3D fluttering butterflies I can easily make with it. I've made other 3D punch art, but the butterflies are my faves.
*One product that will be available in the new catalogue (and as part of the Summer Smooches Suite) is the Daffodil Delight Seam Binding Ribbon. It is so rich in color and chic ~ LOVE it!
*Love this card and the DSP? Come use this stamp set and the gorgeous DSP and my Fast & Fabulous Monthly Card Class this Wednesday April 25th.

Hope you've enjoyed these gorgeous Butterfly Prints. 'Til next time, keep letting stamps bring out your creativity!
