Jems Blog Hop - new In Colours

Well you may have guessed that as the title of this post suggests, 
this month we are showcasing the new 2016 -2018 In Colours.

My first card features my favourite new colour - Dapper Denim

Arty view showing the mechanics of the card

View of card opened

Closed view

Materials used : Dapper Denim and Thick Whisper White cardstock.
Dapper Denim Ink
Stamp sets: Playful Backgrounds, Perpetual Birthday Calendar, Petite Petals
and the sentiment is from Time of Year.
Pansy Punch and Petite Petals punch


My second card uses Flirty Flamingo, which I wasn't too sure about at first sight,
 but it's growing on me now!!

As the matching Designer series paper wasn't available to preorder,
I stamped the background using the Perpetual  Birthday Calendar stamp set
- I think it is quite effective.
The greeting is from the new Hostess set "Time of Year"
and the beautiful matching 3/8" Ruched ribbon finishes it off nicely!!

So - off you hop now to the next blog - Tracy will show you her offering!!
