Today I want to share a beautiful card given to me by my friend, Davette.  She created her card using Tranquil Tulips, a host only stamp set. Did you know that when you place a personal order of  $150 or more, before shipping and tax, you start to receive Stampin’ Rewards? This means you earn FREE product!  You can choose anything from a current catalog, the Clearance Rack and host only sets.  The host only sets can be found in the back of each catalog and when a catalog period ends, the stamp sets retire. The availability of Tranquil Tulips is guaranteed until May 25th and then will be available until May 31st, or while supplies last.

Host only sets are valued at a certain price but offered as a Stampin’ Reward for a lower price. Tranquil Tulips is valued at $16.00 but is available as a Stampin’ Reward for $10.00.  For example, if you placed an order for $163.00 (before shipping/tax), you would earn $16.30 in Stampin’ Rewards. You could choose Tranquil Tulips for $10.00 and you’d still have $6.30 to spend! 

Back to Davette’s gorgeous card! After stamping her tulips, Davette stamped another Tempting Turquoise tulip onto a piece of Whisper White. She fussy cut it (used her scissors), added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and placed it over the middle tulip, She also hand cut the stem and several leaves and did the same thing.  The dimension it adds to the card is very striking!

Davette also used the Picnic Basket Builder Framelits Dies to create the basket that her beautiful flowers are in.  These dies are retiring and earlier this week also went on sale!  They are only available while supplies last.   

These dies also have a coordinating stamp set, Picnic with You, and can be purchased separately or as part of a bundle.  When you purchase bundles, you save 10% BUT with the sale price of the dies, you’ll save more money by buying the dies and stamp set separately.

These are the retiring products on today’s card.  Everything is available while supplies last, except for Tranquil Tulips as noted above. All of these supplies are listed in the supply list below.  You’ll see the SALE price for the dies when you click on the image.
