Punch Inspiration CTC#281

Hello and Welcome to our awesome Sunday Night Blog Hop and Challenge CASEING the CATTY.

To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything, and we love to CASE from our amazing Stampin' Up! catalogues.  

This week, we are CASEING from the Punch Bundle section of the Annual Catalogue and I have been inspired by the project featuring the Jar punch at the top of page 168.

I've kept the ribbon detail across the middle, set my featured piece in the centre, and used a small greeting close to the bow of the ribbon.  

My card features one of my new favourites - Life is Beautiful, and I've used it with Blushing Bride and Crumb Cake for a soft feminine feel.  

The bow was created using the gorgeous braid trim which I've stretched to give it more texture.  

The card opens in the centre and features another sentiment from this versatile set.  

I created my own patterned paper for the background by repeatedly stamping the leaf images.  

Up next on our marvellous hop is the lovely Sandra and her inspirational project!!

We would love you join in the challenge with us too!  Check out all the inspiration, and then add your project to our Facebook challenge page!!  


  1. Beautiful card, Julia. Love the soft colour combo and the surprise opening.

  2. This is gorgeous - I haven’t got this stamp set but I’m finding it harder and harder to resist. I love everything about this card, from the colours to the fancy opening. Thanks for sharing.

  3. What a lovely card Julia, I love the stamped background too.

  4. Ooo, a pink tree! I love the soft and pretty combo. This is such a pretty design, you could make a whole rainbow of them. I like the unusual opening - I'll have to give that a go.

  5. I love your card. Great colours and the bow really adds to it. I’ve just caved and ordered this stamp set.

  6. Love that you made your own background pattern. So pretty!!
