Loving the New In Colors

I am loving the new In Colors that were introduced last month in the Stampin’ Up! catalog.  Seeing these new colors each year is one of the highlights of seeing a new catalog.  For those who aren’t familiar with “In Colors,” these are 5 new colors that are released each year with the annual catalog.  Each set of 5 colors is active for 2 years.  The colors we are playing with today will be in the catalog until 2018.  Don’t get me wrong, I am still mourning the loss of Blackberry Bliss, but Dapper Denim is growing on me and I am having fun playing with all of them.  Here’s a little card I created to show them off…

Loving the New In Colors

Don’t they look good together?  From top to bottom here are the colors used:  Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, and Sweet Sugarplum.  Since I am drawn to pinks and blues I am partial to Flirty Flamingo and Dapper Denim.   After stamping the In Colors on Whisper White cardstock, I used the Heart Framelits to cut them into a heart and I cut a larger white heart to create the framed look.  It is very dramatic against that black cardstock, and the black really “pops” with that Flirty Flamingo layer framing it.  The “love” is stamped in Sweet Sugarplum ink.

Maybe you have been following my Card A Day Challenge on our Facebook page.  I have been busy every day this month creating Christmas Cards.  Our month is almost gone, but before it is over I am going to create a Christmas card using the new In Colors.  Head over to our Facebook Page to see all the Christmas cards we have created so far.  While you are there, be sure to ‘Like’ our page in order to stay up to date on the latest news and inspiration we share.

Strength & Prayers

The new Strength & Prayers stamp set arrived at my house yesterday!  I finally got in my studio around 10:00 last night to play with my new toys.  That was just enough time to design and create a single card with this set, but I am planning on a little more studio time this evening and will share my creations with you on Facebook.  Make sure you “like” my page here so you can see what I come up with!

Strength & Prayers

I mixed the old with the new on my color combo and used Sweet Sugarplum and Perfect Plum.  There’s a dainty feel to this card from the white embossed dove and the pearl accents, and I just love it.  Simple yet elegant.
