CTC 133: Ribbon of Courage

Published by under cards | Jun 18 2017

Welcome to this week’s CASEing the Catty blog hop. Every Sunday night at 7pm AEST, the CTC Crew share great ideas from the latest Stampin’ Up! Catalogues.  We either directly CASE (Copy and Share Everything) a project in the catalogue, or we use an aspect like a layout or colour combo as inspiration for our own creations. This week, we are sharing our projects inspired by the Love & Sympathy section, pages 86-101 of the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue.

Come and join us! Make your own project and share it  in the CASEing the Catty Challenge Facebook Group.  


Ribbon of Courage

The inspiration for my card this week came from the very special Ribbon of Courage stamp set and framelit bundle, and in particular the card on the bottom right of page 97.

A few changes were made, of course. I swapped out the ribbon image for the hearts, but that card was certainly a great place to jump-start the creative process.

I ended up making quite a few of these for a team swap recently.

The hearts were cut out with the Sweet & Sassy framelits and there’s just a touch of Berry Burst 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon poking out from behind the feature layer.

I really love the thoughtful sentiments in this set…

  • “Live every moment, Laugh every day, Love with all your heart”
  • “Sending love and hugs to you”
  • “With faith all things are possible”
  • and “Courage”.

Now aren’t they just words to live by.

    Beautiful card Simone, I plan to use this set for a girls night in fundraiser later in the year. It’s great to see some gorgeous creations like yours using that set. They certainly are lovely sentiments.
