Sometimes you can have so much of a new thing, you don’t know where to begin. Do you know the feeling?  Sitting among my 2019 Stampin’ Up! goodies, with the Butterfly Gala stamp set in my hands,  I realized I needed a focus. I turned to the challenge at CAS(E) this sketch:


I envisioned a Balmy Blue, Bokeh Dot sky in the center, providing a window for a beautiful butterfly.

Butterfly Window


I stamped the Bokeh Dot rectangle in Balmy Blue ink on Thick Whisper cardstock. There’s a Rectangle Stitched die, a spec smaller than the Bokeh Dot stamp, that I used for cutting.


The butterfly is from one of the black and white designs in the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, which I cut with the Butterfly Duet Punch. In fact, it’s the  paper beneath my card I used for photographing.

I chose two Stampin’ Blends for coloring the butterfly; Light Balmy Blue, and Granny Apple Green.



For the background, I used a black and white pin dot that is on the backside of a butterfly pattern. I found the striped, corners in the Botanical Butterfly DSP also, which were a “must” for the sketch.

The sentiment, “You’ve been on my mind,” is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set, and it fits perfectly in a Rectangle Stitched die, inside the Bokeh Dot window.
