And we're back! There is so much going on this summer, both in our regularly (over)scheduled lives, and in the Stampin' Up! world. For starters, there's a new catalog, which means some new stamps and accessories. But we've been so busy that we actually haven't had time to play with the new things, and we also haven't ordered that many...yet. So we'll be phasing in new stuff, and all these great new colors, throughout the year.
Today's card is appropriate for our return post, and it is all new stuff! The owls are from Cute by the Inches, a level-2 hostess set, which means you can't buy it, but I'd be happy to help you earn it. All the images are great, and its nine squares that can be used in many ways...and you'll be seeing a few more soon. The sentiment is a stamp from the Summer Mini, In a Word.
These also are new colors! The base of the card, and the reddish paper are both In-Colors, and they'll be available for the next two years--a change that I'm very excited about. The base is Peach Parfait, and the red is Poppy Parade (a new favorite of mine). The dark brown you see peeking through is one of the new Core Colors, which means it's here to stay quite a while--Early Espresso.
So, what do you think of the new stuff?
