May Pals Blog Hop Badge

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for May where we are preparing for the retirement of some Stampin’ Up! products.  Though it may be goodbye to some very loved supplies, it will make room for the much anticipated new catalog products.  We hope you enjoy the Pals’ creative projects.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Sue Becker at RnR Stamping, number 3 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.

My card today is very simple. A Pool Party card base topped with a piece of Basic Black card stock. A piece of Watercolor Paper is stamped with images from the Kinda Eclectic (Crushed Curry sun) and Bootiful Occasions (black Staz On boot) stamp sets. I used the Aqua Painter (my favorite coloring tool lately) to paint the boot in Pool Party, and to go over the center part of the sun to give it a more watercolored look than a stamped look. Three Pool Party Candy Dots balance it all out. Super duper easy peasy.

The only retiring item I’ve used today is the Bootiful Occasions stamp set, but everything is from the 2014-2015 Annual catalog. Check back because I’ll begin using brand new products very soon!

The next stop is Lisa Pretto at InkBig Academy Stamps!, number 5 on the Pals Blog Hop!  Thanks for visiting; I hope to see you on next month’s Pals Hop!

And as always, Sweet Stamping!
