It’s Day 3 of my display samples share! Since Friday I’ve been sharing projects I created for the 2016 OnStage Display Boards in Salt Lake City. We’ve done Watermelon Wonder, Tip Top Taupe, and so today I’m going to be sharing projects highlighting ways to use your Cucumber Crush!
Now, I know some folks LOVE this color because they love the bright colors… love bright green for Christmas, or if you are my neighbor, it is perfect for Tinkerbell punch art and party decorations! No seriously, I didn’t realize how perfect of a match it was until we put the Tinkerbell picture next to the cardstock. Fabulous!
But if you are like me, sometimes lots of bright green is hard to work with, so I had to put in at least one card that isn’t quite so bold. So that was this card. I played with the Swirly Bird stamp set and Affectionately Yours designer paper to create a card that lets you use bold colors and highlight your favorite pattern papers (plus it is a great way to use up scraps!)
But if you like bold… let’s go bold! I mixed bright colors with the much loved Celebrate Today stamp set. Though this also taught me that I need a new firm foam Night of Navy ink pad! I still was working with my old linen style pad and the coverage just isn’t the same on these large, solid photopolymer stamps.
How about a fun gift box? Plus more copper foiled paper from the Affectionately Yours designer paper pack!
And then, if you are going to go bold, let’s go CRAZY BOLD! I mixed In Color designer paper with the Affectionately Yours designer paper to make a super bright and cheery layout that was great for our Tulip trip. PS – yep, that is Swirly Bird to make those tulips! I was pretty proud of that discovery. ha ha ha. Just exactly what I needed to finish out the layout.
And with that we have 2 Days Left to get your favorites from the Stampin’ Up Retirement List and I’ll have 2 more days of display board samples to share. Don’t forget, you can take advantage of my May Shopping Special until May 31st. :
