Welcome to our July Blog Hop! Perhaps you have arrived here from Diana Gibbs’ blog, but If you’re just joining us, we invite you to hop along! This month we were challenged to come up with anything Patriotic or Red, White and Blue. Enter the Maritime Designer Series Paper pack – one of my very favorites from the new catalog. There’s just something appealing about it’s crisp clean designs, and I knew it was what I wanted to work with for this month’s Hop. But I was at a bit of a loss for just what to actually do with it. That is until I saw this week’s Cas(e) This Sketch winner by Amy Sheffler. Loved it’s simplicity and I knew that would do just fine for me! So I got out my Banner Framelits and my Star Punch and went to town. I thought the stars needed a little ‘jazzing’ up, so I took my Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities marker and colored some Rhinestones red – cool, eh? Here’s a closer look…
For the greeting, I used photopolymer stamps that came with the June My Paper Pumpkin kit. (What? You haven’t subscribed yet? You can sign up at www.mypaperpumpkin.com but don’t forget to select me as your demonstrator!)
So, have you heard the big news? Several of the color families of the Blendabilities have been released today for you to purchase! When you’re done hopping with us, hop on over to my online store and get your favorite colors. Choose from Coastal Cabana, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, or the Skin Tone Assortment. The rest of the color families will be available to you in August.
Also available to you today is the Color Lifter and The Memento Ink Pad and Refill! The Memento Ink Pad is a must with the Blendies – water-based inks like our Classic Pads and Staz-On will turn your projects into a muddy mess. You have to work with a dye ink like Memento with these markers. Good news, though – you don’t need any special paper. Whisper White does a fantastic job!
And now it’s time to send you over to see what Mary has for you. If you get lost, I’ve listed all of this month’s players below. Thanks for stopping by – enjoy the rest of the hop!!
