CTC #261 - Blue Butterflies

Welcome to another week at CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop, where utilise the projects within the current Stampin' Up! catalogue to inspire our own projects each week. We also invite you to join with us in the challenge each week by using this inspiration in your own creations and uploading a photo to our Facebook page.

This week we are taking our inspiration from the projects in the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue, and what a catalogue it is this year. I always get excited for SAB, it is the best time in the Stampin' Up! year with the ability to earn amazing products for free. This year the offerings are amazing, with stamp sets, framelits, embossing folders, punches, kits, embellishments and stunning Designer Series Paper! If you don't already have a demonstrator message me to get your copy.

I was inspired by this image from page 12, I was flicking through looking at the projects and the cute way the main panel on this card has been punched to create a notch for the ribbon really caught my eye.

I decided to move away from the soft pretty colours of the original and used one of the deeper coloured sheets of DSP from the Perennial Essence collection. The stamped images are from Butterfly Gala and Beauty Abounds stamp sets from the Annual Catalogue, stamped in Night of Navy and Blackberry Bliss. The cute ribbon is from the Mini Catalogue and is originally white but coloured with Night of Navy Blends pen, I love how it keeps it's crinkle look even when coloured. You are going to see much more of this cute ribbon on my projects in coming weeks. 

I hope you are inspired to join in the challenge this week, just use the samples in the 2020 Sale-A-Bration Catalogue to inspire your creativity, then post a picture of your project to the CTC Facebook page.

Time to hop on over and see what Julia has created this week.

Happy Stamping


  1. Fabulous card, the DSP is so pretty and complements the butterflies perfectly

  2. I love how moody your version of this card is! The dark colours look amazing, as do the butterflies. Love it!

  3. Beautiful card Monique, I love the deeper colours you’ve used. I hadn’t noticed the notches for the ribbon, looks great.

  4. The notched edge for the ribbon is such an awesome idea! Love these stamp sets, and the deep colours are so elegant! Lovely.

  5. Love the Perennial Essence dsp as the background. Such a fab card!
