I loved the first In-Colors we had, last years were even nicer but I have to say that I like this years even more and am so happy that we will have them till 31st August, 2010. It actually surprises me how much I like them as when I first saw them online after they were released in the US on the Incentive Cruise (I think it was then) I didn’t think much of them. Seeing them in person is so much different though.
I have 2 cards to share with you today and both of them contain some In-Colors and also some of the lovely coordinating DSP which is part of the May Promotion ending 31st May. Check out the details here.
This first card was my Secret Stamper card which is for a monthly swap on an online stamp group I’m in. I found this lovely card by Ilina Crouse on SCS and made a few alterations and came up with this.
Fifth Avenue Floral would have to be one of my favourite stamp sets in the new IB&C. Mind you there are a few favourites……lol. My favourite Hostess set would have to be the Level 1 set ‘Best Yet’. I just love the fonts used, the layout and words. It’s a very versatile set and was the one on my first order. The new eyelet border punch adds a lovely delicate touch to cards too and of course I can’t miss commenting on the gorgeous Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon (it’s Kiwi Kiss one side and Very Vanilla on the other).
Stamp sets: Fifth Avenue Floral, Best Yet
Card: Basic Black, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White, Urban Oasis DSP
Inks: Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black

This next card is using the Upsy Daisy stamp set. There are lots of variations and similar cards out there like this one. This card was made for my April GTKY (Getting To Know You) partner which is another monthly swap on the online stamping group.
I’ve stamped the daisies twice. First time in Baja Breeze and then the second time in Not Quite Navy which is slightly to the right of the first image to give a shadow effect. Unfortunately it’s not very visible in this photo but I’m sure you can imagine what it looks like up close.
