Sneak Peak: 2008 In Colors

I wanted to play with the new In Colors before I went to sleep the other night, so I found a layout that I liked in the current catalog (Spring/Summer 2008). I changed the colors using the soon to be released SU! In Colors (Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Tangerine tango, Kiwi Kiss and Pink Pirouette).

On this card I started by punching out the 5 petal flower punch with Riding Hood Red Cardstock. First I stamped the line of flowers from the Stamp Set A Beautiful Thing. I stamped the end flower three times, but in different colors (i'm sure there was an easier way to do this, but at the time I wasn't thinking! LOL) starting with Tangerine Tango, Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss. Mix and matched the little center flowers. I used the flower trio from the Three for you Punch box to punch out the little flowers....

I stamped the solid flower in Tangerine Tango onto white cardstock and cut it out... I inked the lined flower in Riding Hood Red ink and punched the center with a 3/4" circle punch...raised that up with Dimensionals and adhered it to the Tango flower.

After cutting and punching out all the flowers and such, I moved on to the base of the card. I cut a piece of Kiwi Kiss and mounted it towards the bottom of the page. Instead of using DSP for the orange piece on the original card I used a stamped strip of Tangering Tango (stamped with the little flower line).

I adhered everything to the card (look at card for placement) and stamped the "sentiment" in White Craft Ink.

Instead of dry embossing the bottom of the card I paper pierced it.

Hope you like my "version" of the card. thanks for looking!

fun card, with new colors I did not even realize it was a beautiful thing set until I saw the sentiment.
