Baroque Motifs

I just love this new set! Especially the beautiful large swirly stamp. It can be both elegant and playful. This first card uses 2 of the new In Colors: River Rock & Groovy Guava along with one of my old favorites: Mellow Moss. I didn't order the new ink pads in these colors yet, so I had to make due with what I have. I used Cameo Coral with the Guava, but it's a little too bright I think. The Guava is a more toned down shade. Actually I didn't think I would like the Groovy Guava, but after seeing it in person I really do like it! I used Mellow Moss ink on the River Rock for the swirl design. I like the look of those two colors together.

The second card I did was a more fun and whimsical design. This time I used 3 of the new In Colors card stock: Purely Pomegranate, Soft Sky & Groovy Guava. Since the only ink pad I had to match was the Soft Sky, I used white embossing powder and embossed the flower designs. This set embosses beautifully! For the tiny flowers stamped in Sky I added a white center using my white Signo gel pen. Same goes for the white dots on the corners of framed "kind" sentiment. The brads in the center of the large flower are something I had in my stash. They match the Sky card stock pretty good. I'm hoping to see lots more colors of brads in the new catalog!
Notice the white dot border around the edge of the card? That is one of the stamps from the In the Spotlight hostess set. I have a feeling that's going to be a well used stamp.
