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!
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.
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!
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!
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!
