Pals 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. And thanks to the talented Nicole Watt for creating the blog hop badge and buttons featuring the This and That Epic Day Kit (133465), and Venetian Romance DSP (134735).

You should have just left stop number 15 on the Pals Hop - Debbie Mageed at Scrappin' and Stampin'.  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.

My card uses Crumb Cake card stock and the In Color Designer Series Paper stack. I chose two different designs and three colors: Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe and Coastal Cabana.

The sentiment, Thanks So Much, is from the Oh, Hello stamp set and is heat embossed in white.

I also heat embossed four flowers from the new Flower Shop set and punched them out with the new Pansy Punch.

Three of the flowers are clustered on Stampin’ Dimensionals over a strip of Baked Brown Sugar and a thin strip of Crisp Cantaloupe . There are Basic Jewel Pearls in the centers.

The bottom flower is embellished with one of the small Antique Brads.

The next stop is Mikki Sarkisyan at Mikki's Creative Corner, stop number 17 on the Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting – and I hope to see you next month!
