Summer Starfruit Hello

On Friday, June 1st, the new Annual Catalog is making its debut.  I wanted to show you a card I designed using one of the new 2012-2014 In Colors.  Five new ones, Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, and Summer Starfruit, are being added; they are absolutely gorgeous and I love them all!  I paired the new Summer Starfruit with the Island Indigo, which is one of the 2012-2013 In Colors.

Stamp Sets:  My Friend, Starburst Wheel; Ink:  Island Indigo, Summer Starfruit; Card Stock:  Summer Starfruit, Island Indigo; Accessories & Tools:  Blossom Punch, Fancy Flower Punch, 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch, 5/8" Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Tempting Turquoise Brights Brad, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals

To make the matching ribbon, I used my brayer and applied Summer Starfruit ink to the Whisper White Organza Ribbon.  I apply color to both sides to be sure to cover all the ribbon.  It is a quick way to color your ribbon and a whole lot less messy than dying it.

If you don't have your copy of the new Annual Catalog, let me know.  You can e-mail me and I'll be happy to send one out to you.
