ICS Blog Hop - Abstract Impressions Color Challenge

Welcome to our monthly Inspire, Create, and Share Blog Hop.  Today we are featuring designs that are based on this color challenge: Blackberry Bliss, Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo.
I used the Abstract Impressions bundle for my design.  The beautiful floral die cut inspired me to try piecing the colors together.  I cut out the entire die in each of the three card stock colors.  Then I used our Paper Snips to trim out the Flirty Flamingo and Blackberry Bliss flowers.  Using a moist Stampin' Sponge dipped into multipurpose glue, I dabbed the back of each cut out flower to adhere in the same space on the full die cut of Coastal Cabana card stock.  I used the same glue technique to adhere the finished floral die cut to the Ruffle embossed Very Vanilla card stock card front.
The Very Vanilla polka dot tulle ribbon adds an airy texture beneath the sentiment label.  I trimmed the top and bottom of the Very Vanilla label to layer it on the same Blackberry Bliss label.  Each of the Flirty Flamingo flowers is accented with Wink of Stella clear glitter.  The Pearl Basic Jewels add one more touch of elegance.  Don't they look stunning against the Ruffled embossing on the card front?
I hope you will order this Abstract Impressions bundle and enjoy making creative projects with it.

Interesting idea die cutting the piece in different colors. I'll have to try that.

Our paper snips make the cutting of each image so easy. I was really relieved to see how quickly it went together!
