The 2016 -2018 In Color Collection is fabulous! Picking just one favorite color from this lineup is difficult. With that said, I can pick one for just today – and it is the beautiful Flirty Flamingo. My card today is monochromatic and I think that it has a nice ambience about it. Be sure to let me know what you think.
As I was separating paper for my shares, I noticed that some of the patterns in the Irresistibly Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper coordinated with the gorgeous new stamp set Falling Flowers. In addition, Stampin' Up! has matching framelits so no fussy cutting required. This collection is actually called Irresistibly Floral & can be found on page 126 -127 of the 2016 -2017 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.
Beacause I was short on time, I wanted to create a fairly simple card. After selecting which piece of the Irresistibly Floral Specialty DSP that I wanted, I grabbed one of the new Sponge Brayers. These are perfect for adding color to my selected paper. After Inking the brayer with Flirty Flamingo Ink, I rolled it across my dsp. Remember to start off your paper so that you don't get harsh lines. Just ink and roll – pretty simple. Use a tissue to wipe the ink off of the embossed areas of the paper after the paper is inked.
As long as I was going for a monochromatic look, I chose Flirty Flamingo 3/8" Ruched Ribbon to add texture to my card. In addition, I stamped a flower from Falling Flowers with Flirty Flamingo Ink on Flirty Flamingo Cardstock. The May Flower Framelits worked perfectly for cutting out the flower. Of course, I had to add some Pearls to the center.
After adding a dimensional to the bottom of the flower, I coiled some Copper Metallic Thread & attached it to the back of the flower. You will have to look close in order to see the Metallic Thread. The sentiment from Flourishing Phrases is stamped on Whisper White Cardstock with Flirty Flamingo Ink. It is cut out with a Project Life Cards & Labels Framelit & adorned with an In Color Enamel Shape.
The inside of my card has a thin strip of the inked Irresistibly Floral DSP. This helps to tie the inside of my card to the front.
