July Creative Crew - In WithThe New! Part 1

The focus for the Creative Crew over on Split Coast Stampers this month is new stuff.  The 2011-2012 ©Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog goes live today!  WOOOOHOOOOO!!!  I am very excited. 

For the Color Focus we are to use the In Colors.  They are fabulous.  We have 5 In Colors that are staying and 5 brand new to add.  Those are the ones I am focusing on.  They are Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Wisteria Wonder and Island Indigo. 

This card uses three of the In Colors.  Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade and Island Indigo.  The stamp sets are Pennant Parade and Happiest Birthday Wishes (a new hostess set).  The pennants are punched out with the new Petite Pennants Builder Punch.  LOVE that.  
This card uses the new Wisteria Wonder.  It is a wonderful shade.  I just love it.  The stamp set is Delicate Doilies.  The sentiment is from the set Curly Cute.  I am happy that set didn't retire.  The Designer Series Paper is Flirtatious.  The stamping was done on Shimmery White.  I also used Basic Pearls.  I did not use any ribbon!  Shocking, I know.
This uses all of the new In Colors.  Isn't this fun?!  Wooohooo!!!  I just stamped all of the colors on Whisper White.  Stamped the sentiment on Pool Party with Chocolate Chip.  I punched each piece of the colors with the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  The fabulous ribbon is the new Scallop Dots Ribbon in Chocolate Chip.  I cannot wait to get more colors of that.  YUM.
This is for the new catalog focus.  We could choose any item that is new.  I chose the stamp set Simply Soft.  It is a hostess set.  Isn't it just gorgeous?  Pool Party is my favorite color right now.  (Calypso Coral is a close 2nd)  I stamped on Naturals Ivory and used the spritzer tool with Pool Party and Crumb Cake markers.  The background piece is Crumb Cake stamped with Wonderfully Worn and both that piece and the floral piece were sponged. 
The rest is coming.  I just want to put the next 2 cards in a separate post.

Everything is ©Stampin' Up!
