Addicted to Colors!

It's time for my favorite challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More...Addicted to Colors!  Check out the beautiful color palette we had to work with this week!
I paired our challenge with the sketch at retro sketches.
Now that the new Stampin' Up! catalog is live, I am just ITCHING to get my first order and start creating with all my new goodies!  In the meantime, I've been using some of the items I was able to get in my preorder.
I really like the Wildflower Meadow stamp set, but once you pair it with the coordinating embossing folder it becomes a WOW!  Just that little bit of embossing adds so much more interest to it, I think!  I stamped the flowers twice and cut the second pair out and folded them a little to add some more dimension.  When I colored my stamp, I actually did not even color the dots. They just happened to have some extra ink on them from my dirty scrubber. Oops!  It turned out to be a good oops though because I cleaned it all off really good and tried stamping it without the dots and it didn't look as good!  Oh, there is some retired DSP there from the DSP stacks while I am waiting to get my new ones. Can't wait to see the new designs in person!
Stamp Sets: Banner Greetings, Wildflower Meadow
Cardstock: So Saffron, Whisper White
