Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for July.  This month we are excited to show off the new 2015 – 2017 Stampin’ Up! In Colors, namely, Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder. The In Color products include card stock, designer series paper, ribbon and other embellishments.  We hope you find great inspiration from the projects.


You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Peggy Noe at Pretty Paper Cards, number 22 on the Pals Hop.  If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

Wetlands, Trust in God, Fun Fold Card, Floral Framelits

I wanted you to see the versatility of Mint Macaron, when paired with Tip Top Taupe. I love both of these colors and when they are together – WOW! This card was inspired by Marianne Skjelstad with this card. My measurements are slightly different than hers so I will give you mine.

  • Tip Top Taupe: 11 3/4″ x 5 1/2″ and scored at 3 1/4″, 5″, 6 3/4″, 8 1/2″Wetlands, Trust in God, Fun Fold Card, Floral Framelits 1
  • Mint Macaron was cut with largest Floral Frames framelit then cut in half, edges were sponged, then adhered to the card base
  • Fussy cut around the Floral framelit, then sponge the edges of the card base
  • Cut the next smaller Floral Frame Framelit with the Mint Macaron DSP paper, cut in half, sponge edges and adhere to card base
  • Panels were cut: Mint Macaron 5 1/4″ x 1 1/2″ and DSP 5″ x 1 1/4″Wetlands, Trust in God, Fun Fold Card, Floral Framelits 2

    Could you please tell me how the bird is attached to the card? Is it just attached in the middle of the oval–if so, just glued or dimensionals? I love your card. Thanks, D.
