Let's Look at the New In-Colors

Hi everyone.  Welcome to Tuesday and to a new week.  I do hope you all enjoyed your Memorial Day weekend.  I spent mine with my hubby.  We attended a graduation party for one of his fire fighter's daughter on Saturday night and had a lot of fun.   On Sunday we decided to indulge a little for the long hot summer of Arizona and bought an inflatable pool.  Now this is not a big pool.  It is a smaller one we can get in to cool off and just relax.  We set it up and had a nice relaxing afternoon.  Monday was a work day for my hubby so I spent most of the day with my sister doing girl stuff!!

I went into my craft room to make a card to share with you today and decided I should showcase a few of the new items from the upcoming catalog as well as the new in-colors.  I also decided I would just make a card front instead of a whole card.  With the card front, I may choose to add it to a card in the future or I can just use it as an example.  So let's get started shall we.

Okay so I forgot to rotate the photo prior to uploading it to my blog.  Don't know why I cannot seem to remember to do this.  Oh well I can still talk you through my card.  Just pretend it is vertical.  Since I made just a card front, I started with a piece of Basic Black cut at 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  Next I cut a piece of Whisper White at 4" x 5 1/4".  I took this piece and ran it through my big shot using the new Modern Mosaic impression folder.  I attached the piece to the black with runner adhesive.

Next, I grabbed a half piece of each of the new in-colors:  Crisp Cantaloupe, Baked Brown Sugar, Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabana.  I used the new mosaic punch and punched 2 out of each color.  I then randomly attached them to the card using runner adhesive.  As you can see from the photo, I used the side of the white where the mosaic is depressed and not raised.  That way my punched pieces would fit and look really nice.  I added crystal effects to these added on mosaic pieces and left them to dry.  Once dry, I attached a rhinestone to the top and bottom points of the punched shapes.  

My greeting is from a new hostess set called Sweetly Framed.  I stamped the frame, saying, and hearts using Basic Black ink onto Whisper White card stock and cut it out using my scissors.  I then took a scrap of black and used one of the frames from the Apothecary Accents framelits set to cut out the background for the white piece.  I added rhinestones to this and attached it to the card using dimensionals.  

Well that's all for today.  I will return tomorrow with another card to share with you.  Thanks for dropping by today.  See you all later!!
