ICS Blog Hop Introducing 2016-2018 In Colors!

Hello and Welcome to the July Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop!  I hope you are ready for some fabulous color inspiration!  If you arrived from the awesome blog of Nichole Smith, thank you for continuing on!  If you started this hop at my blog, please make sure you check out all of this month's projects to inspire you!  This month's theme is the 2016-2018 Stampin' Up! In Colors and they are absolutely Fabulous!!!  In case you've been out of commission and somehow missed them, here are the colors ... 

I seriously LOVE everyone of these colors.. I don't know how to choose a favorite!  So for my card, I used them all!

I started with an 11" x 4-1/4" piece of Dapper Denim Cardstock, scored at 5-1/2" and then added a 4-1/8" x 5-5/8" piece of Sweet Sugarplum for a thin border.  Next was the fun part.  I cut 1/2" strips of all of the new In colors and using a piece of 4" x 5-1/4" piece of scrap cardstock for my base, I added the strips diagonally.  I cut my stray ends off as I went to keep things a little neater.  Once I had all of the strips adhered, I embossed it with my Polka Dot Textured Embossing Folder and attached to my Sweet Sugarplum layer.  I attached some loops of Silver Metallic Thread with Stampin' Dimensionals and then added a Silver Foil Doily.  I heat embossed the sentiment from Grateful Bunch onto a 2" circle of Sweet Sugarplum with Silver Embossing Powder.  I used Tear Tape to attach the Circle to the front of the Silver Doily.  I then glued 5 silver sequins onto the front and added a folded strip of Silver Sequin Trim to the left side with glue dots.  I think it turned out super cute!

For the inside of my card, I used a piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock that measured 3-1/4" x 4-1/2".  I attached some strips to the lower right corner and stamped the sentiment in Dapper Denim.
