Welcome...The New In Colors!

Good morning! Aren't these new In Colors just fabulous??? I didn't think I liked them at first but now that I have them in my hands and I can see them with other colors...I LOVE them! I am so glad I gave in and bought them! Anyway, here is the first card I made with them! I absolutely love this color combination! It is such a soft and subtle look but it is just gorgeous! I got this great stamp from the Inkadinkado set called Birthday Cupcake. Hobby Lobby had a 50% off sale last week on all sets and once I saw they had this set, I knew I had to buy it! One can never have too many cupcakes! :D Oh...speaking of cupcakes...have you seen the INCREDIBLE new cupcake set in the SU! Catalog? It's called Crazy for Cupcakes and it is a MUST HAVE set! Especially for those of you who participate in Taylor's Cupcake Challenges! Anyway, back to the card, I colored the image using my ink pads and blender pens. Since SU! doesn't come out with markers for the In Colors you can turn your blender pens into temporary markers by just dipping them into the pool of ink on your ink pad lid. It works like a charm! The sketch I used is one of the Anni-Verve-sary sketches. I also used my whimsy wheel on the piece of Pink Piroette but it didn't show up as well as I had hoped. To finish up the card I added some ribbon that I got from Taylored Expressions along with some great dew drops!

Well, I guess that's all there is to say about my card! This morning/afternoon Leanne is coming over and we are going to stamp! We are taking a break from our classrooms and are going to have some fun! We only have 3 more days left of total freedom before we have to head back to school so we are going to take advantage of that! Enjoy your day!

I love it! I, too, questioned the new "in" colors when I first saw them but I like this card and seeing the colors put together like this. Cute cute cute!!!
