Thinking Of The Pals Blog Hop


Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!

This month, the theme is a Color Challenge. Using Crumb Cake, Mango Melody, Cajun Craze and Mossy Meadow, the Design Team has created some great projects that you will all want to see. We hope that you will be inspired by all the amazing creations! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. Then, you will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I tried to stay light with the color combo this week for the Pals Blog Hop using the Cup Of Tea bundle along with the Fern 3D embossing folder. I started with a Crumb Cake base and then ran the white card stock background through the Fern 3D embossing folder. I took my blending brush and blended Mossy Meadow ink over it lightly. I then cut a white Deckled Rectangle and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Season Of Chic set in Cajun Craze ink on the bottom. I attached it to the embossed background after swirling some linen thread between. I stamped the cup from the Cup Of Tea set in Cajun ink on white card stock and the stems in Mossy Meadow ink plus several flowers in Mango Melody. I cut them out with the matching Teacup dies. I finished up with some copper dots. I was going for a shabby chic card and I think it rocked it! 

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on November 9th when the theme will be Home for the Holidays.

Until then, have fun in your craft space.

  1. Always fun to see how my Pals put their own stamp on the Hop!
    I love your concept of keeping it light!

  2. Windy, your teacup is so sweet! Love the fern background, and softer colors!

  3. Sweet card. Teacup later is great. I need to start playing with that bundle.

  4. Windy, this is such a pretty "cup of tea". You used the colors perfectly.

  5. Love, love, love the softness of your card Windy. Absolutely beautiful!!!

  6. You did rock it Windy! Great card! :)

  7. What a wonderful card! Such a great way to use the color combination, Windy! I was so intimidated by the strong colors and couldn't see how to lighten them up. You did it perfectly. Thank you for joining the blog hop this month!

  8. Beautiful, Windy. You took some dramatic "heavy" colors and made them light and airy. Love it!
