CTC 234: Pressed Petals

Published by under cards | Jun 23 2019

Hi friends! I’m SO excited about our theme for Case-ing The Catty this week. It’s all about the gorgeous new Pressed Petals suite, which is one of my faves (it’s running a very close second behind Bird Ballad).

In particular, we’re using the Pressed Petals colour scheme as inspiration, and the layouts on pages 72-74.

The rich and noble colours include Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Pear Pizzazz, Rococo Rose, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla.

Don’t worry, we don’t have to use them all! Just as many as we want. Phew!

The card layout I chose as inspiration was this one from page 73…

I changed it around to a portrait layout instead of landscape, swapped out the stamped paper at the top for Designer Series Paper, swapped the sentiment and changed around the flower a little.

Here is my version…

How amazing is the Pressed Petal Washi Tape flower?! Individual petals on a roll of washi tape, so you can peel off as many petals as you like to create a flower. Or use them individually for scattered petals. So fun!

You actually get two rolls of washi tape in this pack. The second is a gorgeous vintage-y script style, which you can see just a little bit of it poking out under the vellum sentiment.

The centre is from a punched daisy (trimmed) in Crushed Curry cardstock, with a metallic Designer Element embellishment to finish it off.

The sentiment was stamped in Merry Merlot ink, then clear embossed to help set the ink onto the vellum. I nice way to add a sentiment without it overpowering the design.

For more inspiration, continue along our fun blog hop. Next up is the fabulous Lauren Meiklejohn – you can see her project here.

Would you like to have a go at this week’s challenge? To join in, you can either directly CASE (Copy and Share Everything) or use a sketch/layout, colour combination or something similar, as inspiration for your own creation. Then simply take a photo of your project and upload it to the latest challenge album in the CASEing The Catty Challenge group on Facebook. Each challenge will end at 7pm (AEST) on Saturday before the next challenge is posted. We pick some winners each week, but most importantly it’s a fun way to get out of your creative comfort zone and try something new. 

Happy stamping,

    Such a beautiful design, I love the washi tape flower. Using the metallic designer element as a flower centre is really clever, it looks amazing.

    This is so vintage-y and pretty, Simone. Perfect with this colour palette. I love the substitution of the DSP on your version and the vellum for the sentiment. Lovely!

    Lovely card, Simone. This is such a great layout in either orientation. Love the woodgrain DSP, too.
