New Catalogue, New In Colors - Which Is Your Favourite?

Hello & welcome to this months Jems Blog Hop. This month were showcasing the new Stampin' Up! 2016-2018 In Colors. 

Stampin' Up! In Colors are only available for two catalogue years (1st June to 31st May) and each year Stampin' Up release 5 new In Colors. 

Here are this years. Don't you just love their names?!

Have you decided which is your favourite new colour yet? I love some & like others but I'm sure by the time I've hopped through the Jems Blog Hop this month I'll love them all.

Here are my projects using the new colors. 

I've also used the Playful Backgrounds stamp set to create the circle background on the card. All demos who attended OnStage Local in Telford were lucky to get this stamp set in their goodie bags on arrival.

I've also used the very elegant Buttefly Thinlet die as the focal point & the Banners dies to cut two banners one in cardstock & one in vellum to overlay. The vellum banner has been embossed using the Butterfly Embossing Folder.

Can you spot a couple more new products? The sentiment banner has been made using the Thoughtful Banners stamp set & matching punch. The stamp set has an amazing 53 stamps for only £19.00 & if you buy it as a bundle with the matching punch you save 10% (£31.50 for both).

And here's a closeup of all 5 cards. 

And to finish off here is a something I found on Caroline Halletts Facebook page which I though was a fun way of looking at the In Colors.

The next blog on your journey is the very talented Sarah-Jane who I know will have something lovely for you to look at.
