Brand New Treasures!!!

I've finally had a little time to play with my new Stampin' Up! goodies from the new catalog.  I'm especially excited about the new In Colors this year.  Pool Party is a lovely robin egg color of blue -- just gorgeous!  And, Calypso Coral is a nice happy color of coral -- MUCH prettier (in my opinion) than the retired cousins from the past -- Cameo Coral or Groovy Guava.  It goes perfectly with Poppy Parade.  Wisteria Wonder is the much needed pale purple that we've been lacking in our color collection.  It looks so great with Concord Crush -- a vibrant purple from last year's In Color addition.  Lucky Limeade is a really rich lime color -- much less "split pea soup" looking than Kiwi Kiss was.  Again, my opinion! :)  Finally, Island Indigo is a brighter version of Not Quite Navy.  It goes nicely with the Pool Party.

Here are a few creations using a new stamp set -- Delicate Doilies.  The thing I love about this set is that it's so versatile.  I created some lovely summery cards as well as a simple, sparkly Christmas card.  There is also a new background stamp called Hello Doily that will be awesome paired with this stamp set.

So, without further ado, here you are!!!

The first two cards were inspired by a card I saw on Splitcoaststampers --  I love how easy this was to create and show cases the new colors perfectly -- Calypso Coral with Poppy Parade, Wisteria Wonder with Concord Crush, and Island Indigo with Pool Party.
Hope this inspires you to create something lovely of your own!!! :)
