CASEing the Catty #477 - CASE the Wildly Flowering DSP Colours

The Wildly Flowers DSP Colours meets Wildflower Designs

Hello, Welcome to Valley Inspirations with Andrea and #477 Challenge with CASEing the Catty.

I am so glad you have dropped by. You may have come from Rochelle Blok, as you take this week’s Blog Hop. At the end of my blog, I have linked to Julia Quinn so you can continue with the Blog Hop.

The Wildly Flowering Suite is so gorgeous and the Designer Series Paper is beautiful with its more muted colour combo. To feature the colours of the DSP I decided to fussy cut flowers directly from the DSP and use background colours of Crumb Cake and Basic White. I have also taken inspiration from the layout of the card at the top of the picture above and converted it into a Latch Fold. I hope you like what I have created to share with you.

As mentioned I took one sheet of the Wildly Flowering DSP and fussy cut a range of flowers.

The background on the front left section was another piece of the DSP that looked like hessian. This piece was embossed with the Layered Floral 3D Embossing Folder and a White Craft ink-pad was lightly dragged over the raised sections to give the embossing highlights. The embossed panel was torn to give extra textural interest. A Basic White panel was also embossed with the same folder and added to the back right hand side.

Flowers and leaves were cut from Basic White card-stock using the Thoughtful Wishes dies. Three of the Countryside Corners dies were used to cut both sections of the “latch”. The 2 larger of the 3 dies were positioned on Crumb Cake card-stock with the RHS closer to allow more room for the fussy cut flowers and die cuts to be arranged. The edge of the larger section had some blending with the White Craft ink and a Blending Brush. The middle section was stamped in Crumb Cake Classic ink with one of the wildflowers from the Wildflower Designs Stamps. A smaller Basic White piece was also cut with a smaller Countryside Corner die.

One of the sentiments from the Wildflower Designs stamps was stamped on Basic White card-stock in both Crumb Cake and Moody Mauve inks. The words were individually fussy cut to create a multicoloured sentiment.

The larger part of the “latch” was attached with Dimensionals to the front panel. The fussy cut flowers and die cuts were arranged and adhered on the latch with Multipurpose Liquid Glue then some Dimensionals were added to ensure the arrangement survived postal handling. A little splattering was added with a Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker.

A Linen Twine double bow was tucked under one of the larger flowers and adhered in place with Glue Dots. A few of the coordinating Adhesive-backed Textured Dots were scattered around the sentiment.

Here is a bit of a close up of the centre of the latch.

When the latch is opened a Basic White panel  is seen that has been simply stamped (and stamped off) in Crumb Cake ink. The Basic White embossed panel is also seen more clearly. A Basic White C6 Envelope was similarly stamped with some wildflowers.

Thank you so much for spending time with me. I so appreciate it. I hope you found something to inspire in some way. x
