Every year Stampin’ UP! introduces 5 new colors that are available for 2 years, at the end of this time, the IN-Colors as they are known, are retired, Coastal Cabana was one of those colors. Earlier this year Stampin’ UP! revamped some of it color families and thrill of thrills Coastal Cabana reappeared as a new core color in the Brights family. I have used it a lot in the last few months, if you check out my last post I used it for a scrapbook page.
I used Abstract Impressions on todays’ card and paired Coastal Cabana with Pool Party – a perfect combination in my mind!
Card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Pool Party Card ~ scored @ 4 1/4
Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4 Coastal Cabana Card
Layer 2: 5 1/8 x 3 7/8 Very Vanilla Card
Ink Colors: Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party and Coastal Cabana
Abstract Impressions is a photopolymer stamp set – it is perfect for multiple layered stamping. I stamped the stems first in Pear Pizzazz then the larger part of the flower in Pool Party followed by the smaller part of the flower in Coastal Cabana. The edges of layer 2 and the inside of the card are sponged with a little Pool Party Ink using the Stampin’ Sponges.
The greeting is also from the Abstract Impressions Stamp Set then cut with the Pretty Label Punch, once again I softened the edges by sponging with Pool Party Ink.
The ribbon is Bermuda Bay 1/4 mini stripped ribbon – which goes perfectly with the other two blues, and it simply adhered to the card with some snail adhesive. A few loops of Copper Metallic Thread and a scattering of the Coastal Cabana Glitter Enamel Dots and we are finished.
