Chocolate Mint for Pals Blog Hop

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 Wendy Klein at Doggone Delightful Stampin', number 15 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.

Chocolate Mint -- my all time favorite ice cream flavor!  This new In Color, Mint Macaron, paired with the chocolate-looking Soft Suede, reminds me of that yummy flavor.  And I think this minty blue is such a yummy color!

I've picked three papers with Mint Macaron in them:  Mint Macaron Cardstock, English Garden Designer Series Paper, and one of the Mint Macaron sheets in the In Color Designer Series Paper Stack.

The lace is the new 1" Dotted Lace Trim in Mint Macaron wrapped around the front of the base card and secured with Snail Adhesive.

The sentiment is from Lovely Amazing You.  It is for sale on line, but you won't find it in the catalog.   Click HERE to see this photopolymer set.  Check out how the font in the stamps match the font in the Designer Series Paper Stack sheet!  I love how Stampin' Up! coordinates so many of their products to fit together so nicely.

The embellishment - so cute! - is an Itty Bitty Accents Epoxy Sticker.  It's clear, but fits perfectly over a Soft Suede heart punched out with the Itty Bitty Accents heart punch.  It gives just a little extra texture and shine that makes the card unique.

At the bottom of this post you will see a list of all the "ingredients" I used to make this card.  You can click on any of the pictures, which will get you to my online store.  Please let me know if you have any questions about it.  I will be happy to help!

The next stop is Amy Whelan at Amy's Inklings, number 17 on the Pals Blog Hop!  Thanks for visiting; I hope to see you on next month’s Pals Hop!
