Heartfelt Flowers


Another gorgeous CAS creation at CASE Study this week courtesy of Laura Bassen.  How cute is that row of houses?  Total rainbow yumminess!  I went with a pretty direct CASE and stuck with the layout, colours and twine.  If it works, it works!  :)  I used 3 PTI dies for this - Beautiful Blooms II #2, Flower Fusion Stem and Heart Prints.  I wanted those beautiful blooms dies for ages and I think this is the first time I've gotten around to using them since I bought them!  For shame...



Cardstock:  (White ) Gina K, (Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Think Big Favourites #12) PTI
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Punch:  (1/8"hole punch) McGill
Dies:  (Beautiful Blooms II #2, Flower Fusion Stem, Heart Prints) PTI
Twine:  (Charcoal) The Twinery

You aren't the only one...it's almost as if the coveting sucks the inspiration right out? I love how the flowers look with the heart centres :)

LOVE your case of Laura's cute card, Jen! Might just have to CASE yours now, if you don't mind :) It's gorgeous!

Way to use those dies! I am in the same boat where I have quite a few that I haven't used...but when I first see them I have to have them. Trying to be better! I love your take on the challenge card. Gorgeous.
