SNEAK PEEK: Emboss Resist Congratulations with 2018-2020 In Colors

 Today was the first day I got to take time to play with the new 2018-2020 In Colors both the ink and cardstock.  I decided to go with Blueberry Bushel for the card base.  I chose to use the stamp from the Amazing Congratulations stamp set that is the outline of the entire word.  I stamped it with Blueberry Bushel and heat embossed with clear embosing powder on Watercolor Paper.  I then used the emboss resist technique to paint the rainbow of new ink colors on the paper with an Aqua painter.   I did add Elegant Eggplant at the end of the rainbow partly because it's not a rainbow without purple at the end.  And, partly because Elegant Eggplant is my current favorite Stampin' Up! and I want to use it as much as possible before it retires.

I have wondered since they announced the color reboot and talked about the in formula change if I would even notice the difference really.  Well, I can say I did immediately.  My first use of all the colors was a watercolor wash with the aquapainter.  I first painted with Lovely Lipstick and then with Elegant Eggplant.  I instantly noticed that the color didn't spread as evenly or easily.  The other new In Colors worked just as smoothly as Lovely Lipstick.  I was also quite impressed how smoothly it stamped on the interior of the card.  I think I'm really going to like the new ink formula as much as I like the stamp pad redesign.  I can't wait to share them with all of you.  The good news is that tomorrow, May 1 early purchase begins for you with the Share What You Love bundles and a bundle of the 2018-2020 In Color Ink Pads.  You can order these tomorrow to begin playing with them yourself.  Let me know if you have any questions.
