My new focus is the In Colors from 2015-2017. Why? Believe it or not on May 31st, they will be retiring. The retirement list is coming out on April 10th and I am sure by the end of this month, supplies will be extremely low or gone. The first to go, card stocked followed by reinkers. I am trying to keep you ahead of the game by showcasing the colors on new projects. If you like the color, purchase the color before it is too late.
Today’s card features the Detailed Floral Thinlit from our Annual catalog. I knew Tip Top Taupe was going to be my card base and then my mind took off looking for the color combination. I decided on Rich Razzleberry (feel like I haven’t used it in ages) and Pink Pirouette. I took Stampin’ Up! sponges and covered my Very Vanilla card stock. I even took a picture of my “art work.”
Helpful Tip: when ever you are shading, I use the lightest color first. You can always shade over the light but you can not remove ink from the darker shade. As you can see, my pattern is random. It all comes together in the end. YES, my hands were full of ink!
For the Flower Embellishment: I stamped the flower from the Crazy About You Stamp Set, in Pink Pirouette and used sponge daubers to show all the colors represented in the card. The flower lines up easily with the Flower Medallion Punch and I put Rich Razzleberry behind it to make it pop. Add one of the metal rimmed pearls and the card was complete! Are you wondering why there is no ribbon? I couldn’t find the right spot without covering up the Detailed Floral Thinlit, so I omitted it. I don’t think the card is missing it. 🙂
I looked back through my photos and came across other cards show casing the Detailed Floral Thinlits. This way, you can see how versatile the thinlits are.
Solid card stock as the cover piece….

I hope you love the Detailed Floral Thinlits. As you can see with each project they look completely different. PLUS, I wanted to mention that the Detail Floral Thinlits are part of a BUNDLE! That is right – it is bundled with Floral Phrases. By buying the bundle you save 10%! We all love when we save money! I have included my project list for you to see the supplies I used in creating today’s card.
