Catty Case Saturday....

Today I took a look at pages 80 and 81 in the new spring and summer SU catty. Between the colors on those pages and then the layout they used on the card at the bottom of page 80 I came up with these two cards....

I did use a retired background but everything else is current. The only difference between the two cards is the sentiment used on the front. The background stamp was stamped in versamark ink and then I used a little bit of clear embossing powder. It really made the background stand out.

Now after seeing how that background was standing out I knew I needed a image that popped and why not a butterfly flying off the card.... I stamped the solid image from flight of a butterfly on creamy caramel and then cut it out along with placing two dimensionals on the back and then added the stamped image on cardstock vellum... I place the vellum on the cardstock using a glue dot.

This color combo may play itself out here on my blog in the next few days to build up to a special project... Have a great Saturday afternoon I'm off to see a movie maybe and then work on my next cards... If you try today's catty case please feel free to leave a link here. I'd love to see what you created.

Stamps: Flight of a Butterfly, retired backgrounder
Ink: versamark, stazon jet black
cardstock: chocolate chip, baja breeze, creamy caramel, cardstock vellum
Accessories: clear ep, heat tool, white grosgrain, corner rounder
