Stamp Off In Color Challenge

I know, many of you check my blog, just to affirm
that it is Friday, specifically Stamp Off Challenge Friday!
 Today, we officially begin using the new 2017-18
Stampin' Up! catalog.  In honor of this new catalog year,
Buffy, Susan and I are having an In Color Challenge.
We have 5 new In Colors, so we are mixing them up
today, in order to get to know the new line-up.

 I will have to say that my favorite new/returning catalog
product is the Glossy White Cardstock (p 194).
Glossy cardstock enables so many different techniques.
It also is much easier to sponge color on to glossy,
because you can "buff out" lines or unintended marks.

In this example, I used 3 In Colors (found on page 184); Berry Burst, Flirty Flamingo and Tranquil Tide.  I also 
sponged on some Pool Party, which coordinates perfectly
with Tranquil Tide.  It is a tad difficult to photograph
Tranquil Tide, as it wants to look Basic Black!

The images come from the Awesomely Artistic set on page
153, with the sentiment from Butterfly Basics on 
page 149.  I embossed the leafy image with the White
Stampin' Emboss Powder on page 201.

So now please click on over to check out the cards
offered by Buffy and Susan, to see what In Colors
they used!

This is beautiful, Jackie. When I saw Glossy White in my box for OnStage, I did a happy dance. (Thank goodness no one saw me.) I'm glad it's back, too - and your use of the "resist" is perfect. Love Flirty Flamingo and Berry Burst with Tranquil Tide. Now....go pop open that Lemon Lime Twist.

Absolutely gorgeous card, Jackie! I love the colour combination you chose. Those dragonflies look so happy in Tranquil Tide :)
