I promised a look at the new 2009-2010 In Colors today and I aim to keep my promises whenever possible. I have to admit that it's the same story every year for me. I see the new colors and I think, "Really, that is what's popular?" And then by the end they are prying them out of my ink-stained fingers. I'm still working on liking some of these colors, but they are already starting to grow on me.This card features the brand new Melon Mambo (bright pink) and Rich Razzleberry (purple) with Basic Black. I am generally not a pink and purple person by nature. But I do like these together, especially with the black. This card also features my current favorite, cannot-use-it-enough Big Shot Die: Flowers, Daisy #2. A little gingham ribbon, bling and paper piercing round the card out. This was my card for last week's Stampin' Addicts Sketch Challenge #15.
And this is my card for this week's sketch challenge. It features Crushed Curry (yellow), Dusty Durango (rust) and - my favorite of the new colors - Soft Suede (brown). Also notice the fabulous Polka Dot Ribbon. I love it. It's reversible too so the other side is just a plain grosgrain. AND pay extra special close attention to that great image from Thoughts and Prayers. Notice that the flowers and branches are different colors and match the new papers? That's because for the first time, Stampin' Up is offering MARKERS to match the In Colors!!!!! Thanks for listening Stampin' Up!
The last card features Crushed Curry, Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay (turquoise) and Melon Mambo. I made this at a shoe box swap last weekend so I must give the credit for the cute card to fellow Utah demonstrator Vicky (Nanny911 on Stampin' Addicts) for this one. That fun robot is a brand new set that will be in the new catalog too called Lots of Bots. We stamped it in VersaMark and used silver embossing powder on it, then water colored it. I love the little nut, bold and screw stamp we used for the background. Thanks for the great project Vicky.
