All New SU!

That's always fun to say isn't it?

My sneak peek SU box came just the other day. Last night I had a chance to dig in! Here's a first creation:
I stamped the pheasant (beautiful stamp I think) twice in Rich Razzleberry and then in Soft Suede ink on Confetti Cream paper (seriously I LOVE Confetti Cream - I don't know why it took me 5 years to find this paper in the catalogue - it's the perfect deeper cream!) Then I cut out the head and added the wing in Soft Suede popped up. The wheat stamp is added on Kraft. I used the new polka-dot grosgrain in Razzleberry (just used it reversed on the non-dotted side).
I also used the new Modern Label punch for the sentiment. It's a great sized punch.

So far I LOVE the new In Colors, they are deeply saturated, which of course I love. So far I've only used these two, and I think Razzleberry is FANTASTIC! The Soft Suede is reminscent of True Thyme - just more of a neutral, less green. It will work really well. I'm also crazy about Bermuda Bay, looking forward to using that later this week.

Big plus...Markers in the new In Colors. Woo hoo!

Alright - my little guy has the day off of school today (yes we're still in school up here...till the end of the month)...so we're heading to the Library this morning...thanks for dropping by!

You've done these new IN colors some serious justice! The new razzleberry is the color that caught my eye and I love it paired with the suede and confetti cream! What a beauty your card is!
