Today is the day that the 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog goes LIVE! I have had a chance to peruse the catalog for the past few weeks and I am very happy with it. There are a bunch of new and trendy stamp sets, accessories and DSP in store for us. My wish list is huge and I do not know where to start! Ok, so I will start off with the new In Colors that I have used for my PPA 100 challenge card!
I have used four out of the five new In Colors on this card, they are Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, Island Indigo, and Lucky Limeade. They are all very trendy colors that match wonderfully well together. The fifth color is Calypso Coral and it also is very pretty.
The other new item on this card is the stamp set Delicate Doilies. There are four stamps to this set and all are used on this card. I stamped each image in a single color, then stamped multiple images in different colors and punched out the centers and layered them up. Each center has a basic rhinestone, that finishes each doily. The thanks stamp from Pretty Postage is popped up extra high for added dimension. Opposite corners are rounded with the corner rounder punch, and some whisper white satin ribbon is pleated and banner cut.
The inside is made using all of the scraps from the centers on the front. The Island Indigo is a bit dark so I used a scallop circle from the scallop circle #2 die for the sentiment inside. The thanks sentiment is popped up with dimensionals (I couldn't resist not to) so remember to save your scraps, I almost always finish my inside with all scraps, a great way to use them up!
Oh and a big note to self, take pictures during the day!! I really struggled taking these pictures at night and could not get good lighting, so sorry, the fault lies with me! What do you think, do you love the new colors? Please drop me a line to know what you think, I enjoy reading all of your comments. Enjoy!
