Color Me New Blog Hop

Hey Everyone!

Welcome to the Grand Vacation Achievers hop for July. This month we are excited to show off the brand new In colors from the just released 2015 – 2016 Annual Catalog. I know you will find great inspiration from the projects. 
You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - PATTY CHENAIL or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup is below and it will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting PATTY CHENAIL. All of the "hoppers" are achievers of a Stampin' Up! Grand Vacation!!  This means we all work extremely hard in our Stampin' Up! businesses to bring you inspiring projects to reproduce and share with others!

Our theme this month is Color Me New.  This means we are sharing projects that contain at least two of our brand new colors.  I have showcased three of the five new colors for you!

My project is done on Tip Top Taupe cardstock and both the butterfly and the birthday greeting are stamped in the same color as the paper.  The hydrangea is watercolors using the Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush inks.  I finished it off using our new 1" dotted lace trim also in Cucumber Crush.

I couldn't resist showing you a close up of the hydrangea flower.  I stamped the flower on our watercolor paper in Black StazOn ink and used our aqua painters and the watermelon wonder and cucumber crush inks to create the "painted" affect!
