Let's Celebrate the New In Colors for Global Stampin Friends Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop... from Amanda Bates at The Craft Spa in the UK...

This month's theme is In Colors... and I have chosen to share projects created with the NEW 2019-2021 In Colors ... because they are my favourite set of In Colors ever! Love that (for once) I can easily use 4 of the 5 In Colors together... makes my life easier!
Though for today I am highlighting one colour at a time...
With a few minor variants in (1) Stitched die cut frames (2) greetings (3) floral centres and (4) ribbons as I go...
Click for more detail on each card... as I think that would be a bit of an overload for today!
Though in the meantime... there is some detail and a list below of the products I used... (with Online Store links)..
Note that Purple Posy was achieved using Stampin Blends rather than Finger Daubers and ink pads... as the ink pad is not available yet!
The Pretty Peacock card (made first in the series) is a CASE of a lovely swap - created by Linda Kasparian- that I received at the last Stampin Up On Stage event...
I guess Linda knew how much I liked here card... as I had to share at the time that I was delighted to swap with her having seen her swap card shared on social media a week or so before!
You can see some of Linda's versions here...

Splatter care of a sharp tap of the brush tip end the Dark Black Stampin Blend (ie the marker end... not the actual tip!)... and check out the sparkly Wink of Stella finish on all of the dandelions!
