I'm super excited to be participating in the Stampin' Addicts New In-Color Blog Hop today!!
The color I chose for the blog hop is Cucumber Crush. At first you may think it is only a color you would use at Christmas or St. Patrick's Day. But I want to show you how versatile it really is.
It is such a bright and happy green. It just screams S P R I N G. So for my first card I paired it with Daffodil Delight for a fun friendship card.
Stamps: Sprinkles of Life
Paper: Cucumber Crush, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Cherry On Top DSP
Accessories: Starburst Framelits, Tree Builder Punch, Candy Dots, Cucumber Crush Dotted Lace Trim
Cucumber Crush is also a great "guy" color. This card has already been delivered to our neighbor who has been helping my hubs work on our 21 year old pickup truck.
Stamps: Guy Greetings, Lots of Thanks
Paper: Smoky Slate, Cucumber Crush, Whisper White, Cherry On Top DSP
Accessories: Zig Zag EF, Triple Banner Punch, Circle Punches, Candy Dots
It can also be a very elegant color. I received a wedding invitation recently that used Cucumber Crush as an accent color. I thought this would make a great bridal shower card for the bride-to-be.
Stamps: Big news, Everything Eleanor
Paper:Cucumber Crush, Brushed Gold, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Spring Flowers EF, Label Framelits, Lace Doily, Itty Bitty Flower Punch, Cucumber Crush Dotted Lace Trim, Rhinestone Jewels
There are so many great ways to use Cucumber Crush. Depending on what color you pair it with it looks fabulous for any occasion! I hope you will give it a try.
For the Sprinkles of Life card I used the sketch from Sketch and Stamp:
For the Guy Greetings card I used the sketch from Nacho Average Challenge:
For the Big News wedding card I just CASEd a card I saw on the web. Which is my usual MO. ;)
