Time to Case- The Flower Challenge

Good Morning.

It's time for another new challenge at  
The Flower Challenge.
This month we are casing a gorgeous card made by Therese Calvird.



I began by stamping the flowers using a set from Stampin Up onto a piece of leftover inky paper.
I fussy cut them out and set them aside.

I die-cut the 'Blessed' sentiment from Penny Black and inked just the bottom using Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers Distress ink.
I wanted to add my flowers to a textured background so I scored lined using my ScorPal and my ScorBug.  I cut the piece to make a split panel then placed my sentiment overlapping both parts.
I mounted the flowers over the panel then added a black gem to the flower centers.

Beautiful, beautiful flowers, Karen! That was the perfect piece of watercolor to stamp them on! Love the scored and split background! The partial coloring on the sentiment is a perfect complement to the bright flowers! An awesome card, my friend!

Gorgeous split panel scored background Karen for your beautiful watercolored, fussy cut and shaped flowers. Love your die cut and partially inked sentiment too. TFS your beauty my friend. Hugs...

Loll said...

LOVE those flowers ... they are gorgeous. The colour mix is so pretty. And I love the texture from your scored background. You sent me a scor-bug a long time ago, but I've never been able to make a straight line with it ... will try using it with my scor-pal. Thanks!! What jumped out as so unique is the die-cut sentiment. Have the split panel with the sentiment overlapping each and colouring just the bottom is so unique and creative, my friend. xx

What amazes me most about your work, Karen it the imaginative ways you do things. I struggle with that! The flowers are amazing on your inked paper as well as the unique and creative background. Love that back panel and the two toned "Blessed" die cut!

It's gorgeous in blue!! That is a neat idea to change the colour but take inspiration from the rest. I'm so impressed with your scored background too. Just perfection in a card! xx

Maria A. said...

Karen, I love the Fabulous Flourettes by Stampin' Up! and you created an amazing card with it, the shades of blue and green look incredible and pop beautifully against your embossed background. Your CASE of Theresa's card looks gorgeous in blue, you made her inspiration, your own.
Hugs,
Maria.

Susi K. said...

Did you say "leftover" inky paper? Such a wonderful kaleidoscope of colour! Love how you split the embossed layer to draw attention to the fabulous half-coloured word sentiment diecut.

Karren said...

Wow, this is gorgeous, Karen and such a great take on Therese's card. The blues and greens are so vivid in your flowers!

Marlies said...

Bobby said...

The inky scrap was perfect for those flowers, Karen. I can't imagine scoring all those lines. Do you need someone to send you an embossing folder? ;)

Heidi Stamps said...

Very beautiful flowers, the colors are perfect. I like how you did the sentiment the same style as Therese too. Lovely CASE. I am still thinking on this challenge.

Anita in France said...

Wow, Karen, those inky blooms are just stunning ... there's such fantastic depth to them! They're gorgeous against the texture-y background and perfect with the ombré sentiment! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Hugs, Anita :)

Princess Judy Palmer said...

What a gorgeous card. That greeting is the best! I like how there is a gap in the embossed panel--just a hint of something different and it really adds to your card.
