New header for Hop

Welcome to our Blog Hop. Our previous Blog Hops included demonstrators who earned the Hawaii Grand Vacation but now we’ve included demonstrators worldwide who have earned Hawaii, Madeira and the Mediterranean.    

This month’s Hop theme is “Color Me New” where we are featuring projects showcasing at least two new 2015-2017 In Colors.   


 My card uses three of the five new In Colors; Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe.  I added the vellum overlay for the greeting simply because I felt stamping it at the bottom of my card was a bit too predictable.  ((smile))  I really love these hops because they challenge me to try something new.  I stamped the greeting on the vellum cardstock using Jet Black Staz On ink.   


 I used a combination of markers and ink pads for the square images and used my Squares Collection Framelits to cut them out.  

Here are the cutting dimensions:

  • Whisper White cardstock base is cut 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″
  • Watermelon Wonder cardstock layer is cut 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Mint Macaron cardstock layer is cut 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″
  • Tip Top Taupe carsick layer is cut 3″ x 3″
  • Vellum cardstock is cut 1 1/4″ x 5″ 

There’s only one “problem” with my card. Do you see it?

I’m a stickler about not using retired products during a current catalog period and guess what I did? I used the retired Essentials Clips on this card to hold my Baker’s Twine!  When I pulled out my retired products I didn’t even realize I missed these clips and ended up using them.  Oh well.   I guess that makes me like the majority of you – using what I’ve got.  ((smile))

Don’t stop here. Hop on over to the next stop on this Hop for more In Color inspiration!

 Saturday is my birthday and I want to GIVE you a free gift! 

Come back on Saturday and celebrate with me!
