New In Colors

If you haven't had a chance to see Stampin' Up!'s new In Colors that will be available in August, here they are! I made this card last weekend when I got my order of preview stuff. I wanted to do something that would show off all six new colors. From the bottom left is Tangerine Tango, going up is Pacific Point, then Riding Hood Red. Moving to the right is Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze. In the bottom right corner is Pink Pirouette. The stamp set, Wow Flowers, is also new and will be available in August too. I used SCS Sketch Challenge 182 for the layout. I stamped the main images in Versamark and embossed them with white embossing powder. Thank you is stamped in black craft ink and clear embossed. {Thank You recipe}
Stamps: Wow Flowers
Ink: Versamark, Black Craft
Paper: Conqueror White, Basic Black, Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point, Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Barely Banana, Pirouette Pink, Lovely Lilac, Pixie Pink
Accessories: white embossing powder, black embossing powder, circle punches, scallop punch, Three For You flower punch, black brad, basic black and pixie pink markers for the envelope

If you want a better look at the new In Colors, Dawn Olchefske has a great color comparison that you can see here.

On a completely non-stamping note (unless you count the stamping I did while watching TV), are there any other Firefly/Serenity fans out there? My husband and I spent two days this week completely immersed in the DVD of this prematurely canceled show called Firefly that apparently developed some cult following (the good kind - and no wonder). They made a movie, Serenity, a few years after the show was over. We really enjoyed it! In fact, we just watched the movie again. It's a really different kind of show, hard to explain. It's a western sci-fi, which let's face it, sounds terrible. But it's really, really good! It has characters that really grow on you and clever dialogue. It's written by the same guy (Joss Whedon) who did Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. I didn't watch either of those shows when they were on, not much into vampires, but guess what just arrived from our Netflix cue? That's right, Buffy! We've been told that if we liked Firefly, we'll love Buffy. So, Buffy it is (and if my husband has his way, Angel will be next).

On the subject of vampires, any Stephanie Meyer fans out there? I've read the first two books in Stephanie Meyer's series. I need to read the third book because the fourth book is coming out in August. Now, again, not much of a vampire fan, and these books are actually young adult/teen books that I heard about in some random Splitcoast forum last year. Tried 'em out! Pleasantly surprised! Quick, easy reads, clearly written for a younger audience, but wonderful mind candy.

Now here I've blabbered on too long. It's way past my bedtime, so off I go!

Cool idea to showcase the colors. I have to say, I'm still getting used to them. I struggle with putting them least for now.

Oh Kim,
You've found out my deep dark not so secret. I'm a Buffy/Angel/Firefly/Serenity/anything Joss Whedon writes freak! Enjoy your foray into the Buffyverse. The first 3 seasons are okay but then it gets fantastic! Angel might be more your speed as it's a little less teen angsty but I'd be interested to hear how you liked BTVS.

The new colors are great and I cannot wait to get them!

I loved Firefly and Serenity! I was late to the game too, we watched it last year on DVD... so great! But never watched Buffy, etc. Have you caught the Dr. Horrible online videos by Joss Whedon? Hurry watch the 3 installments today for free! Tomorrow I think you have to pay.

Kim Gasper said...

Thanks, Pegg! We just went and watched it for FREE! Wacky!! :-)
