The Flower Challenge - CASE

Hello all!

Today's post is for my debut card as the newest design team member over at The Flower Challenge!
I've accepted Aileen's invitation with pleasure, as I think there is no better place for me to play cards than The Flower Challenge :) !

The Challenge for February is to CASE our Guest Designer. And the first Guest Designer at The Flower Challenge is no less than Therese Calvird from Lost in Paper! I adore her clean, beautiful and feminine card making style!

And this is the card she created for us to CASE !  So beautiful!


I decided to take her layout, soft colors, die cut window for colors to peek out and die cut sentiment.
But I went with a cut out in feather shape and placed my roses on a lower layer.


To start off I made a cutting file of a feather in two layers and cut them out from a white cardstock and a white woodgrain cardstock with my Cricut. I cut small circles too with which I replace the embellishments on Therese's card. The roses are from Hero Arts. I stamped the rose twice using Tattered Rose and Twisted Citron DI on Bristol smooth paper and colored them with Zig brush pens. I used orange and pink shades for the roses and added pink for the background. The sentiment die is from The Ton. I die cut it from a snippet of paper which I colored with Zig brush pens in the same colors like the roses. The YOU ARE in orange is from Avery Elle.


Hope you enjoyed my CASE of Therese's beautiful card :)!

Now it's your turn to create some gorgeousness with Therese's card in mind!
Please hop over to The Flower Challenge blog to get some inspirations from other DT members!


Thank you so much for visiting my blog today!
Have a happy weekend!

This is gorgeous TaeEun and congratulations on your becoming part of the design team over at TFC. The CASEing of Therese's soft and pretty card using this feather design works fabulously and the HA roses are beautifully coloured with your Zig brush markers. x

Stunning! Love how those beautiful roses are peeking through the die cut feather, such a clever element on a floral design. Congrats on joining the team, your amazing floral designs never cease to inspire, this is a perfect match!

TaeEun where do I begin. Such an amazing card and your feather cutout looks simply stunning. My first thought was that you had used a piece of beautiful rose pattern paper then saw you had actually painted it. You need to start making videos I think so we can watch the wonderful process of your car making. Those roses are stunning in design and colouring, the small cut circles also so clever. I am so overjoyed that you have joined the team and cant wait for more inspiration. Hugs Aileen

Hello Tae Eun and welcome to the Design Team at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE, it's a pleasure and a joy to have you join us.
Your card is beautiful, love how you stamped this amazing roses and colored them with the no line coloring technique, it's a hard technique but the results are gorgeous.
Love how this images show through the fabulous feather die, a lovely way to showcase them.
Beautiful CASE of Theresa's card.
Hugs,
Maria.

Such a wonderful take on Therese's card. Really gives me inspiration to try this technique (negative space) more. If only I could colour a fraction as good as you do ... :-( Another stunning card, TaeEun, and congratulations on making The Flower Challenge DT (and yay for us, who get to see more of your lovely cards!).

Karren said...
