Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop 11: Holidays with a Twist!

*if all my pictures aren't up yet,  please come back to visit later*
Welcome to the 11th Edition of the
Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop!

This month our theme is Holidays (in July) with a Twist! The goal is to use products that might not be considered "traditional" holiday products, to create holiday projects. A popular theme this time of year is Christmas in July, which is my plan for this blog post. Since Stampin' Up! has several different products available in both silver and gold, I used several of those products as base backgrounds for each of my cards.

(metallics are very challenging to get good pictures--and we're still having rain--so I tried to snap at least one shot for now...please come back and I'll have more pictures for you later!)

My projects this month use NEW product from the 2017-18 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog, featuring two of the NEW 2017-19 In Colors: Tranquil Tide, and Fresh Fig. I chose the Lovely Inside & Out stamp set (available in wood-mount or clear-mount), and the Label Me Pretty stamp set (available in wood-mount or clear-mount) with coordinating Pretty Label Punch (which you can get for 10% OFF in a BUNDLE).


On the silver cards, I stamped on Whisper White card stock.


On the gold cards, I stamped on Very Vanilla card stock.

Stampin' Supplies: Lovely Inside & Out stamp set, Pretty Label stamp set, Whisper White card stock, Very Vanilla card stock, Metallic Foil Sheets (Silver, Gold), Tranquil Tide card stock & ink, Fresh Fig card stock & ink, Pretty Label Punch, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, 2" Circle Punch, Triple Banner Punch (optional), Stitched Shapes Framelits (used with Big Shot), Oh My Stars embossing folder (used with Big Shot), 1/8" Ribbon (Silver, Gold), Faceted Gems (Silver, Gold), Stampin' Trimmer, Paper Snips, Stampin' Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Glue.
