Color Me New – Grand Vacation Achievers Blog Hop


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 Catalogue. We hope you find great inspiration from the projects.
You may just be starting the blog hop here at my or may have come from the person before 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 Vanessa Webb! 
For this round we were to use at least 2 of the new In Colors on our projects………here’s what I came up with…….
The Pyramid shaped card was an idea I received from one of my Hawaii Grand Vacation swaps…..I can’t remember who swapped with me as I lost the details on the back of the project :(! How cute is the shape? The card folds down flat so that you can still pop it in an envelope and send it in the mail. One of my favourite In Color Combinations at the moment is Watermelon Wonder and Mint Macaron…….they are just made to go together!
A special offer for my blog readers………
If you are NOT a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and you would like the measurements and instructions for this card, please leave a comment on this post before July 31, with your email address included,  and I’ll send them to you 🙂
Here’s a close-up of the greeting  with some Silver Metallic Thread wound behind –
