Flowerful Thanks - CAS on Friday Challenge #207


Welcome to CAS on Friday challenge #207. This time around our theme is FLOWERS.

There are an endless number of possibilities for this theme and, of course, floral cards can be used for so many different occasions. It's no wonder most stamp companies issue plenty of flower stamps!

For my offering I chose to use layering dies from Tim Holtz/Sizzix. Doing all the layers in the same colour card and just using ink sponging to give definition makes it a much simpler task than layering with different colours. (Excuse the shadow showing behind there - vagaries of the weather while taking pics lol)

The white-on-white background adds interest and texture without detracting from the floral focal point. 

Materials used:

  • stamps - Itty Bitty Greetings (SU)
  • card - basic white, so saffron, old olive, early espresso
  • other - Bloom dies (Tim Holtz/Sizzix), Gothic stencil (TH), texture paste matte, Dimensionals, craft foam

I'm sure you've got some flower stamps or dies in your collection, so why not join us in the challenge? We'd love to have you! Just click HERE to go to the blog post and also see what gorgeous samples my fellow team mates have created for your inspiration.

Thanks for dropping by.

I love this card Kerry! The white on white paste stencilling makes a perfect background but I am bowled over by the clever idea of just sponging the layering dies with the same colour ink to add depth. I've avoided layering dies so far but I would love to give them a try now that I've seen this subtle effect. Vicky x
