I have to admit that when I first saw the new In Colors the only ones that impressed me were Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist but after making these cards, I can now honestly say that I love all of them!
Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, Berry Burst and Fresh Fig showcased in these cards with the paper piecing technique.
Try these color combos with the new In Color Combos:

I cased my own card for today’s share using the Floral Boutique DSP.

Well, the Occasions Catalogue has come and gone and I am only just opening this Balloon Celebrations stamp set. Thank goodness it carried over to the current Annual Catalogue!
It is an excellent stamp set to feature the new In Colors which are so beautiful and I am very pleased that we’ll have them for the next two years. I don’t think I have a favourite as they all so striking – Dapper Denim, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, Emerald Envy and Sweet Sugarplum.
The card base is Dapper Denim cut 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″. It card stock appears darker in the photo and IRL is not such a deep blue but rather like a denim color. The first layer is Sweet Sugarplum cut 4″ x 5 1/4″ and the focal layer of Whisper White is 3 3/4″ x 5″.
There is a co-ordinating balloon punch and after stamping the Dapper Denim and Sweet Sugarplum balloons I punched them out with the larger balloon. The others are stamped right onto the cardstock. The strings for the balloon are stamped with Smoky Slate and the sentiment is from the SAB Party Pants stamp set. You can also find this sentiment in Sunburst Sayings and Circle of Spring. Funny how a particular font catches one’s eye with all the options for the same sentiment.
