Bling Flowers

I *think* I may have shared this sample at the release party, but I know I haven't blogged it, so here 'tis! Drawing my inspiration from these beautiful bold dots and colors in the DP (from a StampTV kit) I used "Bring the Bling" to stamp and emboss (with black EP) these four different in the set onto Cranberry Tart cardstock, then embossed the leaves onto Fresh Asparagus and cut out for some big, layered floral embellishments! I adhered them with pop dots for extra dimension and curled the end of the leaves and some of the petals up for more depth. I love how the rich, saturated colors and *ever* so slight texture of the Pure Luxury make these almost look like felt or velvet instead of paper! Greeting is from the new StampTV kit "Springtime Silhouettes" on a die cut circle, the pattern on the printed paper made choosing a layout and shape for my greeting easy. :) Doesn't the black just make the white extra crisp and all the other colors pop? I am lovin' this color combo! Thank you for visiting me today! It's almost the weekend!

Melanie, these are wonderful and give me a great way to use up some of the eggplant envy cardstock i still have from SU purchased eight years ago. :)
