Yey, it’s time for another CASE Study with our muse for November, the wonderful Keisha Campbell! Here’s this week’s inspiration:

Keisha certainly rocks die cuts like no one else! What drew me was the dimension from the pin wheel flower with it’s pop of colour over a neutral tag. I stamped and white heat embossed the poinsettia from Clearly Besotted Stamps’ Pretty Poinsettia three times onto vellum card stock. Then I cut out different parts from two of the flowers to layer up. Before attaching the layers to each other, I took the darkest red Copic marker I have (R39) and coloured the back of the vellum pieces. Even though I used a dark marker, colouring on vellum always comes out lighter so my poinsettia ended up being a sweet pink colour :)

I popped the poinsettia onto a tag on which I’d added a little white embossing paste detail with the Peppermint Stripe stencil from Simon Says Stamp and a sentiment from the fabulous Holiday Hellos set, again from Simon :) The tag is strung with some Hemptique twine. I use the 10lb weight which has enough structure to it that if you run it between your thumb and finger nail it creates relaxed loops and twists :) Finally the tag was attached to a patterned paper panel and the panel to a card base both with foam adhesive. Oh and I added some stickles goodness on the poinsettia as the very last touch :)

Please pop by the CASE Study blog to see the Design Team’s creations as well as Keisha’s own CASE and not forgetting our guest for November, Amy Tsuruta :)
