#CTC008 - Flower Patch

Hi and welcome to my blog,

today I decided to play along with Jessie Holton's 'Case this Card' challenge #CTC008. Each week the winner of the challenge is the card you must case for the following week.

If you want to join in then follow this link:


So here is the winning card that I'm casing this week. Kirsten did a fabulous job with her card, it looks so bright and happy. I love how she has put this card together.

So I decided to use the same stamp set and matching framelits to create my card.

Here is what I came up with:

I've also entered this card into Kylie's weekly highlights. Make sure you pop over and see all the other entries for this week and vote for your favourite three! Click this link to check them out and vote!

I really enjoyed pulling this "Flower Patch" stamp set out again as I haven't used it in quite a while. I decided to create the large flowers using the new Ombre Ink that Stampin' Up! have released. It gives you a gradual tone across the flower and looks superb. If you haven't used the ombre inks yet then contact me to find out how you can purchase them. They blend really well and create a lovely effect on stamps. The flower patch flower was perfect as it's a solid stamp and really shows the effect.


I cut the flowers out using the matching framelits and also cut an extra one for the inside of my card to carry the theme through the card. The sentiment also comes from this stamp set too which was a bonus as I only used one stamp set to create this entire card.

Matching Envelope using the sweet sugar plum envelope paper :)

My colour palette for this card was:

  • Sweet Sugar Plum
  • Bermuda Bay
  • Melon Mambo
  • Dapper Denim (sentiment)
  • Blushing Bride
  • Pear Pizzazz
All the background stamping for this card was stamped off once first on scratch paper (just to lighten each colour by one shade).

The sentiment was mounted onto the card using foam strips as these sit slightly higher than stampin dimensionals and I wanted it to sit high above the flowers.

Cardstock used:

  • Sweet Sugar Plum
  • Whisper White


Fancy Frost Sequins (they are soooo gorgeous)!!! I used these cute shiny sequins to decorate some of the flowers on my cards. I used the fine tip glue pen to adhere them!

I hope you like my take on this week's challenge card and take the time to join in too.

Thanks for stopping by, happy crafting :)
