Freshly Made Butterfly Gala

Today is the day!!!  The 2019 Occasions Catalog is here and it's time for Sale-A-Bration too!   If you haven't received your catalog yet, be sure to let me know so I can get one to you!

This weeks Freshly Made Sketches challenge was not one I could pass up!  I had a hard time deciding which stamp set to use for this brought so many ideas to mind! You can guarantee that I'll be using this sketch for a few more creations.
I did finally decide on Butterfly Gala and the beautiful Botanical Butterfly DSP. I love that Stampin' Up! has paired Occasions Catalog items with Sale-A-Bration items.  And this makes me swoon!  I love the colorful images on one side with the bold black and white images on the other.
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Grapefruit Grove, Whisper White, Lemon Lime Twist, Botanical Butterfly DSP
Ink ~ Memento
Stamp Set ~ Butterfly Gala
Other Supplies ~ Butterfly Duet Punch, Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins, Layering Circles Framelits, Tufted Embossing Folder

Did you know you can take this beautiful DSP...
...and use the Butterfly Duet Punch to punch out the beautiful butterflies?
Don't be afraid to cut up or punch out your DSP!!!  The creative possibilities are endless!
I couldn't let these pretty little things go to waste, so I made a second card!

I'm enjoying the last couple days of my winter break and getting in as much stamping time as I possibly can! Keep on checking back as I have lots of new, and old, things to share with you!

Happy Stamping!


  1. Love your card, Bree; that ah-mazing background paper makes your butterfly pop! Thanks so much for joining us for our first sketch of the new year at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. These are both beautiful cards, Bree! I told myself that I didn't need another butterfly punch/stamp set and didn't pre-order this one. Well, now it's on my first order for 2019. Geez!

  3. I love that pop of grapefruit and lemon lime on the black pattern!! Such a sweet butterfly. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
