My oh my how I love the new In Colors for 2012-2014 - they're simply beautiful! I particularly like the Raspberry Ripple as it is similar to Rose Red (which was the color I first purchased when I went to my first Stampin' Up! workshop). It's like a full bodied merlot - so rich and alive! A complementary color is Primrose Petals and I used these two as the main colors for my first sneak peek of some of the new products coming in the new catalogue.
I combined the two colors to come up with this card using the new Betsy's Blossoms stamp set. I made a background using the large blossom flower and inking it up with the Primrose Petals. Wow - are the new stamp pads ever fantastic!!!
I stamped it off for the lighter colors and even stamping it a third time where it is quite light and stamped with full ink for the darker blossoms.
The bird image is part of the set and it was stamped in Raspberry Ripple and Summer Starfruit - don't those names sound yummy? I'll have another sample tomorrow using Gumball Green (this name just conjures up one of those gumball machines - lol).
The sentiment is from another new set called Itty Bitty Banners and it was cut out with one of the new Bitty Banners Framelits and layered onto a larger banner.
Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
