Hello and Goodbye

When the new Idea Book & Catalog comes out in July we will be saying hello to some new colors and goodbye to many of the colors we have known and loved for a long time. I will be sad to see some of them go, but on the other hand I am excited to have some of my favorite past In Colors Baja Breeze & Riding Hood Red! I was already starting to dread the retirement of my luscious Rich Razzleberry and the fun color of Melon Mambo...but those are going to join the new Color Collections!

Of course there are several colors I'll be very sad to see leave...such as Mellow Moss (guess I'll need to change my blog banner and background now, huh? ;-) Here's a card I made that uses a color combo of a few of my fav colors leaving, along with one of the present In Colors that gets to stay.

Stamps: Season of Friendship and Hello Again
Card stock: Melon Mambo (staying!!!) Sage Shadow (leaving :-( and Whisper White
Ink: Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, Sage Shadow and Close to Cocoa (how I will miss thee!)
Accessories: Large, Small & Scalloped Oval Punches, Top Note Die, Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder, White Organza Ribbon

Here is a list of all the colors that will be leaving us at the end of June. (click to enlarge)
I'm sure if you are like me, there are certain colors you are really going to miss, I suggest that you purchase reinkers for your ink pads and any card stock and accessories you think you will need for future projects. That is what I plan to do. Here are the gorgeous new Color Collections. (click to enlarge)

Aren't the new collections gorgeous? I can't wait to see and create with the brand new colors...Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist & Early Espresso in real life!
