Best of Butterflies In Color Intro !!

Hey Stampers,

There is nothing like something NEW is there !?! A new outfit, a new lipstick, a new friend ?? Well, what about new COLORS ?! I LOVE new colors. Even more ways to create beautiful things. Today I am going to introduce to your our BRAND NEW In Colors for 2013-2015 !! They are SO lovely - all I can call them is delicious !! With yummy names that remind me of delicious desserts - how can they be anything but ?? My card today uses all 5 of the new colors - Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana and Baked Brown Sugar. I decided to pair them with a mix of products - brand new, a current favourite and retiring !! Take a look at this sweet card !!

Like I said, can that be called anything but yummy !?! I used the beautiful new butterfly stamp from Best of Butterflies and stamped in 4 of the new colors. These awesome stamp matches our fabulous Elegant Butterfly punch, so of course they got a quick pop out. For some more rich color, I stamped the gorgeous HUGE flower stamp from Betsy's Blossoms in the 4 colors again onto their respective card stocks. Isn't that just a gorgeous background !?! I then punched each of them out with the Curly Label Punch and adhered my butterflies with a Glue Dot. A group of 3 Rhinestones make their sparkly bodies. Cute, right ??

I cut a piece of Whisper White at 4" square to mount my stamped pieces on. I embossed it first with the retiring Cloudy Day embossing folder - this is a DEFINITE must have !! This was then layered onto a 4-1/4" square piece of that gorgeous Coastal Cabana. I added this piece to the left hand side of a Baked Brown Sugar card base. I stamped my sweet sentiment from the brand new Really Good Greetings stamp set in Baked Brown Sugar ink and punched it out with the Ticket Duo Punch. I used a Strawberry Slush scrap to punch out a Petite Curly Label, which I folded over as a fun tab on my Sentiment. A bit of Whisper White Bakers Twine really set off my sentiment piece, and looks so great with the right brown of the Baked Brown Sugar. Awesome !!

Well, I hope you are just as excited as I am about these 5 new colors !! I am so looking forward to using them a LOT over the next 2 years !! Thanks a lot for coming by today !! Leave me a comment telling me which of the new In Colors is YOUR favorite !! Its hard to choose, but I think that Strawberry Slush will get a lot of use in my Stamp Room. Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Stamping !!
