Stampin Up PAL's July Blog Hop




Thank you for joining us for the July Pals Blog Hop to celebrate the 2013-15 In Colors! Are you ready to see wonderful creations made with Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush, Baked Brown Sugar and Coastal Cabana? We all love to make these projects, we hope you enjoy viewing them.  
You should have just left stop number 1 on the Pals Hop - Dawn Tidd Dawn Tidd at Tiddbits from Dawn. If so, you are in the right spot.  If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.




So, it just would not be a complete Hop if at least one person didn't mess things up. I just totally lost sight of the fact that it was suppose to be new incolors. It would be bad enough but I happen to be in
love with the new incolors and seem always to be using them. So much so that I have been trying to make sure I use some other colors.
These are new colors if that counts for anything.  Smoky Gray, Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz.

Such a simple card, but I think the watercolor flower just makes it. I used the Woodgrain embossing folder in Blushing Bride, then the Pear Pizzazz chevron ribbon.  I stamped the flower from the new Hostess set Simply Sketched and used my blender pen just touching the tip into the ink pad, to watercolor the flower.
I stamped the sentiment and used the Circle Framelits to cut it out, just did a little inking on the edge of the circle and applied it over one end of the card.

I find I am using this set over and over, such great graphics and it's fun to color them in.




The next stop is  Amy Lazzell at Just a Thought...Cards by Amy , stop number 3 on the Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting – and I hope to see you next month!
