Social Stamping - In Colours

 

Not sure where the month has gone, but we're back Social Stamping with Kelly Kent and friends with our theme this month using "In Colours". 

Given the 2019-2021 In Colours are soon to retire, I thought I would use that set today, but I will share a card I've made previously for a Challenge using the 2020-2022 In Colours further down.

Using Pieced Blooms Dies, I've cut several leaves from Pretty Peacock, and petals in Purple Posy, Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray with some circle centres from Terracotta Tile. To make it easy to put them together I stuck them all to Adhesive sheet and then randomly constructed my flowers.

I've used a base of Thick Basic White and a top layer of Basic White which I embossed with the (sadly) soon to be retired Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. I've layered the embossed piece onto a mat of Terracotta Tile and adhered it to the base card. Then I've popped all the flowers and leaves into place, it's a bit busy and not colours I'd usually use for flowers. 

Next I've added a greeting from Peaceful Moments in Pretty Peacock and diecut with another of the Pieced Blooms dies. A couple of flowers added to the corner and popped onto the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. To finish I've popped a few of the clear Flowers for Every Season Gems into place.


The layers of flowers are balanced with the depth of the greeting:


As mentioned, I have used the 2020-2022 In Colours for a Challenge some time ago and I shall share it here for a totally different way to use the In-colours. If you want further detail, you can find it on my original post.

 I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's ideas today.

Next up we're hopping over to Mandy:


If you get lost along the way, you'll find all the participants back on Kelly's post here. Thanks again Kelly for your time and energy organising our Social Stamping get togethers.
