Hello, and welcome back! It's time for another challenge at the Can You Case It blog, this time with a May Flowers theme. As the designers, we could use floral stamps, floral die-cuts or even floral patterned paper. Just make flowers the highlight of your project, and then share with us by linking up your project!
I have a LOT of floral stamps that I could have used, but I surprised myself and used flower die cuts and a small strip of floral patterned paper instead. I was in the mood to make a bolder card. Also, my new Sneak Peak products from Stampin' Up arrived. So, the links below will be a little bare as several of the products aren't available for sale until June 2nd. I used two new colors, Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush. Also, this is new Cotton Paper in these colors. I'd describe it as sturdy tissue paper. It die-cuts like butter, and you can crinkle up the petals and leaves and they will keep their shape. I used the front and back of a piece of Basic Gray patterned paper from the new Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack. The patterns are this stripe/floral and polka-dots with a hand-writing pattern on the opposite side. I added a little bit of watercolor spatter in Basic Gray to the right side with my Aqua Painter.
For the flower center, I stamped the thanks sentiment from the retiring A Happy Hooray Stamp Set in Versamark, and then heat embossed it in white. Then, I sponged the Watermelon Wonder ink over the embossed design, and then punched it out with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch. I also layered it onto two circles punched from the Vanilla Coaster Board for more dimension.
Well, that's all for today! Please join us at Can You Case It, and show off your floral creations. Thanks for stopping by.
