In colour flowers for CAS

Hey everyone! 
I'm quite excited today, not just because the sun is beating down on Bolton, but because it is my design month at CAS-Colours and Sketches! To kick it off, I have gone with some brand new Stampin' Up! In Colours, but please don't worry if you don't have them...anything similar is absolutely fine!

I think these are really lovely, vintagey colours, don't you? But when I came to make my card, for some reason I thought of wood and flowers, so here's what I came up with...

I used the Hardwood stamp to create my background, using Tip Top Taupe, but I stamped it off first as it was a little too dark for what I wanted. I then stamped the leaves from Crazy About You in Mint Macaron, stamping twice on each inking to give different shades of colour.

I used the gorgeous Watermelon Wonder for the Petite Petals, stamping several times for each inking. I punched them with the matching punch and then die cut 'happy' from Hello You Thinlits. I made it a bit girly by tying some baker's twine onto it. 'Birthday' shows Tip Top Taupe in it's full colour. I used Sahara Sand for the card base, just to show how well it complements the new colours.

I am so looking forward to seeing your designs...I'm sure there will be some gorgeous creations this week! :)

  4. The flowers look great against the hardwood background - almost like they're climbing on a fence! Nicely done, Lizy!
