Love the New In Colors!!!

Can I just say how much I am loving Stampin' Up's new In Colors? They are fabulous!!! Here's a couple quick pics of some cards I've done lately for workshops, stamp clubs, and swaps using the new colors (sorry if there are blades of grass in the pics - I took them outside in my yard because the lighting was a little better):

Circle Circus Happy B-day Card
Stampin' Supplies:
Circle Circus, All Holidays
Paper: Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White
Ink: Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: 1", 1 1/4", and scallop circle punches, trio flower punch, scallop edge punch, silver brads, clear rhinestone brads

I know, I'm a punch addict!! It makes my life so much easier not having to cut out all those circles, etc. And the beautiful thing about the Circle Circus set is that our punches coordinate with all the images! Brilliant!!

Medallion Thank You Card
Stampin' Supplies:
Thank You Kindly, Medallion
Paper: Melon Mambo, Whisper White
Ink: Melon Mambo
Accessories: Jumbo Grommet, rhinestone brad
***TIP: To set the jumbo grommets, simply line up on your card where you want to place the grommet and, using a mousepad or self-healing mat, push the grommet prongs through the paper. Then, turn over and fold the prongs down with your bone folder. Super easy!
**Another note: The Medallion (background) stamp is one of my fave new sets in the new catalog!! It can carry a card all by itself; it's so beautiful! And very versatile - perfect for thank yous, b-days, weddings, and it could even work for masculine cards with the right color scheme! Love it!!

Razzle Dazzle Thank You card
Stampin' Supplies:

Stamps: Razzle Dazzle, Wow Flowers
Paper: Whisper White, Soft Suede, Crushed Curry
Ink: Soft Suede, Crushed Curry Stampin' Write Marker
Accessories: Crushed Curry polka-dot grosgrain ribbon, 1 1/4", 1 3/8", and scallop circle punches, Sizzix Big Shot, Top Note die for Big Shot

TIP: You can create your own background paper by stamping an image repeatedly on cardstock; similar to the way I did with the flowery background shown on this card.
