My goal today was to showcase some new stamps and colors. Some are available today and others we have to wait a little longer for (July 2010). I am excited about the new color families and really enjoyed working with four brand new colors in those families.
This card features Awash with Flowers, available in July. Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi and Whisper White cardstock. Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mamob and Wild Wasabi ink. White and Wasabi (retired but coming back) grosgrain and the Scallop Border punch. The Daffodil Delight is such a cheerful color, perfect for spring or summer. The card is very simple to make. I used the bottom of the stem for the stray grass and stamped of once for the inside of the flowers.
This clean and simple card is my favorite of the bunch. The color combo was inspired by an article featuring the new color coach in the Stampin' Success magazine. Want the magazine? Become a demonstrator and receive it for free each month. It features Watercolor Trio, available now in the Summer Mini caatalog. Whisper White and Marina Mist cardstock, Cartainly Celery ink. Scallop and Large Oval punches and Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die (carried over from previous mini catalog). I sponged celery onto the label and stamped off once for some of the greenery. Marina Mist is similar to Baja Breeze but richer.
This is the last of the clean and simple cards. It features Wings of Friendship, available now as a level two hostess set. Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White and Basic Black cardstock. Versamark and Basic Black ink. Vintage Brads, Large and Scallop Oval punches, Clear Embossing Powder and Black and White Striped Grosgrain ribbon. This is another color that is named perfectly, it really does look like hot cherry cobbler.
This one features Elements of Style, available in now in the Summer Mini catalog. So Saffron, Old Olive, Natural Ivory and Early Espresso cardstock. Brown Staz On (retired), So Saffron, More Mustard, Certainly Celery and Old Olive ink. Olive Twill Tape (retired), Linen Thread and Mustard grosgrain. Color Spritzer Tool with Chocolate Chip Marker, Scallop and Eyelet Border punches, 1" and 1 1/4" circle punches. It was a little time consuming because of the watercoloring, but well worth it. Early Espresso looks just like it sounds. It is a very rich dark color, darker than chocolate but not black.
I hope you are as excited as I am about what is in store for next year.
Thanks for stopping by.
