New & Exciting Colors

It is with great sadness that we farewell our current In Colors because they truly are beautiful! But nothing can out weigh my excitement when my pre-order arrived yesterday full of new & exciting treasures! Here is a snap of the New In Colors already making themselves at home in my ink caddy! The colors are called Pirouette Pink, Riding Hood Red, Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point & Baja Breeze, aren't they pretty?
And also in my little box of goodies, came some new stamp sets! Yay! The one I used in this card is called 'Cheers to You' and contains 5 cute drinks and a cheers to you sentiment. I used the beer mug here for one of our friends who is turning 30 this weekend. I also used the Kiwi kiss, pacific point & tangerine tango colors. I am not sure how well you can see it, but the froth on the beer is actually really 3 dimensional, and looks quite frothy IRL. I found this awesome tutorial on Butternut Sage Designs Blog. Just a note, don't heat it for too long, because it can burn! Don't ask me how I know that, lets just say I do! lol! I tried to take a closer photo of the froth but it is a very dark, gray day here (Yay! Rain at last!) and it just was not happening.
