Happy New In Colors!

Heyyy lookit that, I made a card!  Actually I made two, I have another one to share tomorrow or Saturday.  Anyway, I got my new catalog preorder with the new In Colors and I just had to bust 'em out!

Oooooooohhhh I love new colors.  That, my dears, is a card made with Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, and Tranquil Tide.  So far Tranquil Tide is my favorite; it reminds me of the deep bluish green on the Stoney Creek cross stitch patterns I used to stitch when I was a kid.  And I thought these three new colors fit pretty well with the Cupcake Inspirations color challenge:

Pretty.  I also used this week's Freshly Made Sketch:

I paired the brand new colors with some flower stamps that are retiring, so this fits with the Retro Rubber Challenge:

Pretty sure I've had Flower Patch for about three years, and I've made quite a few projects with it.  The Hello You Thinlits are retiring as well, also a favorite here at Snapdragon Stamps.  But just because they're retiring doesn't mean they're leaving my craft room.  I'm like a dragon with her hoard when it comes to crafty supplies ;)

My little baby Sodapop is doing tummy time on the floor next to me while I eat breakfast (homemade apple cranberry muffins, thanks again to Sally's fabulous muffin recipe!), but I'm hoping he'll take a nap here in a little bit so I can go work in my craft room again.  I'm working on a scrapbook project and I also really want to play around more with these new colors...

Cheers, y'all!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Flower Patch
Ink:  Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide
Paper:  Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide, Whisper White
Accessories:  Hello You Thinlits, hole punch

I agree with you that the new in-colours are fantastic and you've showcased them well. Isn't it a good feeling to mix old stamps with new things? Thanks for joining us again at Retro Rubber for our spring flower challenge.

Great way to combine all the challenges! Very pretty flowers in a fun pattern. I too am like a dragon with my crafting supplies, what a fun analogy!
