I'm excited to finally receive my pre-order for the upcoming new catalog! That means five brand new In Colors to play with! I LOVE color...but never quite know how I feel about the colors until I get them in my hands and try them in person. Flower Patch is a good set to use when experimenting with color...here's my first card I made while playing with the new colors...I used each and every new In Color on this card!
While I'm sad to see this years rich, beautiful colors go, I'm happy to say that there are a couple new colors that I just love and the rest I like quite a bit. Sometimes there is at least one that I don't care for and have a hard time using...but this time I can see using them all and I rather like how they work together. They are fun, happy colors!
The base of the card is Peekaboo Peach, the matting layer is Dapper Denim, the ribbon is Sweet Sugarplum Ruched Ribbon, the leaves are Emerald Envy (both stamped off, and full strength) and finally, Flirty Flamingo was used on the flower centers. Which of these new In Colors do you like the best?
I also used a new stamp set called Thoughtful Banners. This is a great set that contains 46 different words that can be combined to create your perfect sentiment plus several shapes. The BEST part is that there are two new coordinating punches that go with this stamp set as well! One is a label shape (shown above) which was not available to pre-order. (I had to hand cut for this card) The other punch is called Duet Banner and I can already tell I'll be using it a LOT! I'll be getting the other one in June on my first new catalog order for sure.
Check back tomorrow when I will have a set of five cards using each of the new colors.
