The second question on my New Catalog Scavenger Hunt was –

We introduced 5 new In-Colors for 2016 – 2018.  Which one is your favorite?

The new colors are

  1. Dapper Denim
  2. Emerald Envy
  3. Flirty Flamingo
  4. Peekaboo Peach
  5. Sweet Sugarplum

Each year Stampin’ Up! introduces five new In Colors, which are available for two years.  So far I really like Dapper Denim – I’ve used it a bunch and also the Peekaboo Peach. Which one is your favorite?

I think Emerald Envy is going to big for the holidays but here is a fun little card featuring it that is not a holiday card.  I’m not quite ready yet to think about the holidays.  Summer is just getting started!


I used the fun new Hostess stamp set called Love You Lots along with the new Layering Squares Framelits.  I love all the sizes of plain and scalloped squares.  There are 19 dies in this set!

The Designer paper I used is from the Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack.  It has three of our new in-colors in it.  But I opted to go with one of the black patterns for this card.  It looks so good with the Emerald Envy.  I watercolored my frog which gives him a lot of variation in color.

I hope you like this little guy.  You can get this stamp set free if you earn Stampin’ Rewards – just host a party or place a qualifying order.  Contact me for more info – or visit my website –
