New Stuff!

My order arrived!!

With this card, I was subconsciously inspired by Audra on SCS. On my card I stamped the background with the flourishes, but it didn't show in the picture well. I actually stamped off once to make it a softer background. I really like the River Rock and Purely Pomegranate colors together. Such an elegant pair. Just a simple card here, just wanted to get something made!

Stamps: Baroque Motifs
Paper: Purely Pomegranate, River Rock, Very Vanilla
Ink: Purely Pomegranate, River Rock
Accessories: Celery Organdy Ribbon

This was the first card I made with the new stuff. Although I'm not too crazy about the way it turned out, the colors are fun anyway.

Stamps: 3 for You Punch Box
Paper: Whisper White, Groovy Guava, Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate
Ink: Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi
Accessories: White Organdy Ribbon, Slit Punch

I had to do a little test to see how close some of these colors are to our current colors. I think a couple are very close-for instance: Purely Pomegranate & Rose Red, and Blue Bayou & Not Quite Navy. I really can't tell too much difference except the Rose Red and Blue Bayou are a *tad* lighter than the others. All in all, They are all great colors and my favorite is Purely Pomegranate & Wild Wasabi. I haven't played too much with the others, but I'm sure I'll fall for them sooner or later.
