Well summer is finally upon us! I hope this month's 
Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop 
finds everyone happy, well, and enjoying the season! Weather here in New England is summer-perfect right now!!!!

So this month we are featuring our brandy new In-Colors from out amazing new Annual Catalog!!! These are some of the best yet!!!

Here's my card:

I managed to squeeze all 5 In-Colors in! lol They even have fun names this year-Dapper Denim, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum, Emerald Envy & Peekaboo Peach!  Sometimes the In-Colors work best for a certain season or occasion, but this batch fits just about any!  So bright & bold, but not "in your face" if ya know what I mean!

I used my new stamp set Vertical Greetings for this one! I LOVE this stamp set! It's just different! It's perfect for a quick card too!!!  I can't wait to explore it a bit more!!!

The beautiful embossing is also a new folder called Seaside! I am totally the ocean girl, so anything that even hints sea is all for me! But I love the swirls on this one. I decided to try them vertically this time-goes with the stamp set! lol

Embellishments include the new Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon and the 
16-18 In-Color Enamel Shapes! These will be a hit!! A super nice embellishment, but flat so it doesn't damage an envelope, and shiny! It's all about the bling in life! lol Throw in a dash of Wink of Stella & it's done!!!

Now if you'd like some other great ideas for the new 16-18 In-Colors then be sure to hit all the blogs on our hop! Next after me is Nicole's blog!!

Happy Stampin'!!!
