Big Flowers - New In Colors!

Well, I tried to hold off playing with my new goodies until I finished my other projects...but I just had to try out the new colors! ...and the cool new scallop border punch! ...and one of the new sets... Here's a quick card I made using a few of the new colors.

They are all so pretty! I'm loving the new Baja's darker than my beloved Soft Sky, which I am sad to see go. Wasn't sure if I'd like Tangerine Tango or not...but I must say it's one of my favs. I've already incorporated into a scrapbook page as well as this card. The middle flower above was stamped in Riding Hood Red...I'm sure I'll be using this a lot for upcoming Christmas cards. I love most shades of green, so I knew I'd like Kiwi's a shade right between Certainly Celery & Old Olive. Although it is not used on this card, another new color that is destined to be one of my new favorites is Pacific Point. It's a deep, rich shade of blue. My three guys all picked it as their favorite when I showed them the new colors. So I know it will be perfect for guy cards.

The ribbon shown in photo is White Taffeta dyed with Tangerine Tango reinker. I ended up not using it on my card, but I'm sure I'll find a use for it! Dying ribbon with your reinkers is a great way to have matching ribbon when you may otherwise not have any on hand.

Stamps: Big Flowers, Heard From the Heart, Canvas background
Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red & VersaMark
Card stock: Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango & Baja Breeze

Now that I've played a bit, back to my scrappin'! have a good one!
