New In Colors

I almost forgot all about today's sketch challenge....can you believe it!! My new in colors from Stampin Up got delivered yesterday, so I wanted to play around with them. I stamped my flower from Both Way Blossoms and colored it in using my aqua painter and ink pads. I cut it and all the layers out with my rectangle Nestabilities. The sentiment is a rub on from the Love and Happiness set. I added some pink satin ribbon and a spiral clip with some black gingham on it and silver brads in all the corners. I am not in love with the new in colors yet, but hopefully I get there. To me, they are kind of a disappointment after the last two sets. Am I alone?
Well, that is it for me for today!! Lots of blurfing and commenting to do!! Have a great day and thanks for coming by!!

  1. I won't get to see the new in colors till my SU! club this Sunday, so I don't know if I love them yet---what I can tell you is that I LOVE this card you made! The double scalloped frame in front of the swiss dotted bg is gorgeous! Wish I could *play around* and come up with these results, lol! You are awesome! :) hugs, gf!

  7. your card is beautiful! I was not crazy about the colors at first, but they are growing on me; I waited so long to order them they just now shipped today. I will check back with you once I start using them to let you know what I think, k?

  8. I thought I was the only one! No, I do not love the new "in colors", at least the way they show up online. Kiwi Kiss in particular makes me feel slightly nauseated...

  13. Hey girl...I haven't seen the new in colors but they kind of remind me of PTI colors right? Spring Moss? Sweet Blush? Maybe they are different IRL. Anyways, the card is awesome! LOVE all your touches! TFS!

  15. Your card is absolutely beautiful Jessie! :D I love those scalloped rectangles. I need to get a cuttlebug so that I can finally have some nesties! I just love the clean look that they give a card!

    I have to admit that I am a little disappointed with the new colors as well. I think SU! must be running out of color ideas! Anyway, I hear that they grow on you. I have yet to experience that. Hopefully I do though because we are going to have them around for awhile! Haha! I do love how you used them though. They look much more appealing.

    Also, thanks for the super sweet comment on my blog! You made my day! My eye is all better too! :D The drops they gave me worked like a charm! Have a great night girl!

    ((hugs))
