Display Stamples - Cucumber Crush

Hi stampers!  I'm sharing another group of my samples today.  I have to admit that cucumber crush is probably my least favorite or used in color in this group.  I don't know exactly what it is, I really love bright colors but this one is just too...bright...or something.  BUT, I have to say, I think I've embraced it a little more after being "forced" to use it ;-)  But don't be surprised if you still don't see much of it from me ;-)  The upcoming green is more my speed!

So, let's begin!  The first card is probably my favorite in this group and that shouldn't surprise you since I love christmas.  And I love the combo of cucumber, night of navy, and crumb cake!  I did quite a bit of sponging to tone the green down just a bit. And gold is the perfect accent!

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Holly jolly greetings
Paper:  Whisper white, crumb cake, night of navy, cucumber crush, 2015-2017 in colors DSP stack, gold foil sheets, gold glimmer paper
Ink: Crumb cake, night of navy, cucumber crush
Accessories:  Softly falling EF, Christmas greetings thinlits

The next three cards are pretty simple, which is kind of a trend on my display cards.  I found it really challenging to stamp with only a partial carry over list of accessories so I kept them fairly simple.  Of course I've had about 1000 ideas since my flight out to SLC ;-)  This card combines the new ribbon with a carry over stamp set and the carry over in color DSP.

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Flower flair, endless thanks
Paper: Whisper white, 2015-2017 in color DSP stack
Ink: Basic black, blushing bride, watermelon wonder, cucumber crush
Accessories: Cucumber crush 5/8" mini striped ribbon, pearl basic jewels, flower flair framelits

On this card, I used a new hostess set.  The frog was quite perfect for cucumber, no?  Again, I went simple.  The thick white baker's twine was also a challenge for me so I dyed it green here!

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Love you lots, greatest greetings
Paper:  Whisper white, 2015-2017 in color DSP stack, watercolor paper
Ink: Black star on, cucumber crush
Accessories:  tags & labels framelits, thick white baker's twine, large polka dot EF

And finally, another simple card but I think it's tons of fun!  I'm happy to report that the party with cake stamp set and these cute dies are in the new catalog, hip hip hooray!!!!!  I especially like the two patterns here.  All I did was mount the die cut on the polka dot DSP and it's kind of like a shaker card without all the work!  Of course it doesn't shake but it's still cute!


Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Party with cake
Paper: Basic black, cucumber crush, 2015-2017 in color DSP stack
Ink:  Basic black
Accessories:  Party pop up thinlits

Ok, that's it for cucumber.  I'm working hard to get the rest of my photos edited and posted so stay tuned!

Happy stamping!
