Color Me New Grand Vacation Blog Hop

Blog hop banner

Welcome to the Grand Vacation Blog Hop for July!!  Our theme this month is to show off the brand new In colors from the just released 2015 โ€“ 2016 Annual Catalog!! I hope you enjoy all the amazing projects showcased!!

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – The Creativity Cave by Dena Rekow or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. 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. At the moment you are visiting Dena Rekow.
Today I have some really fun and simple projects using the set, Stamp a Bag (I might add, I have yet to actually stamp a bag with it–it is way too fun for cards so far!!!  I also used my Watercolor Wishes Card Kit stamp set to add greetings for the cards. That kit is a dream!!!  Love the stamps for other projects!!
So the theme is Color Me New and we needed to stamp using at least 2 of Stampin Up!’s new In Colors, so I picked Watermelon Wonder (which I love) and Tip Top Taupe (also love–and it is soooooo versatile!!)  I then added Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral to complete the look!
Love the simplicity of this one!!  Quick and easy with a couple of punches some pearls and I’m done!!
Next I added the new Lots of Labels Framelits and built on my previous card to step it up a bit!  I love how it turned out!!
The background dots were stamped off because the “full-strength” ones were just a bit “IN YOUR FACE!!”
The last card I stamped the background in white and I rubbed the edges with my white pad and love how it looks!!  This card is a little simpler, but I thought I needed to put my flower punch down and back off…I am truly addicted to those Itty Bitty Accents Punches!!
