Well, I haven't had time to play so much with all my new goodies yet! Tomorrow is the day for that! 
I just thought I'd share a couple of cards I made with some new supplies!!! 

You might notice how beautifully bold the images are! Well, you will love the new Classic Stamp Pads! They are so much easier to stamp with! Lots less "tapping"!!! Brilliantly bold!!! You will love them! When you get your new In-Colors, you will get the new stamp pads! Of course you can order any colors you'd like! They are all now available!!!

 This is made with one of the new Hostess Sets, "A Cherry on Top" (#125969w/125971c). You might see a little glare on the card. That's because I stamped the dome on the clear Window Sheets (#114323, $4.95). I used Jet Black Stazon ink(#101406, $7.95) because it is a permanent ink and did not smuge on the window sheet.  I then simply cut it & attached! 
More practice with the new In-Colors! I really love how they go together! Plus, until I get playing with my big order from yesterday, these are the only new stamp pads I have! I really love them! I know I'm going to end up ordering them all!!!

"Betsy's Blossoms" again! This time I colored the stamp with the In-Color Markers & cut the big flower out! Don't know if you can tell from the picture, but there are Rhinestone Basic Jewels (119246, $4.95) to adorn the flower & under the sentiment. 
Love that Baker's Twine! Can't find that color in the catalog? That's because it's not there! I used the Whisper White (#1242620, $2.95) & "dragged" it across the Raspberry Ripple (#126859, $5.95) ink pad! Great way to color your ribbons! Just be sure to let them dry before you try to use them! It can get very messy!!!!

Last one for today! I was soooo excited when they brought back this stamp set! You probably remember it from the Summer Mini Catalog last summer! It's called The Open Sea (#123030, $26.95w/0123032c, $18.95). Being a Cape Cod girl myself, I love any nautical/beach stamps! This was one of my faves because of the "antique" look of it! 
Notice the shading around the circle? I used the Frost White Shimmer Paint (#1168540, $5.95)on a Stampin' Sponge (#101610, $3.50) and just "dabbed" around the edge. It really has a nice "wave-like" glimmer to it. Thought it was kind of nautical!

Well, off to visit my NEW stuff!!!! More tomorrow!

Happy Stampin'!!!!
