Stampin' Addicts New Colors Blog Hop
Welcome to Stampin' Addicts New Colors Blog Hop! Not too long ago, we focused on the retiring colors from the Color Refresh; now we are kicking off the new colors with a hop. Grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and enjoy the yummy color tour.
If you have been following the blog hop in order, you have just come from Rhonda's blog featuring Coastal Cabana. Weren't her projects fun? For my stop on this blog hop, I am highlighting the new In Color Crisp Cantaloupe.
For my first card, I thought I would illustrate Crisp Cantaloupe as a fabulous and yummy summer flower color.
Stamps: Field Flowers, Banner Greetings, Woodgrain BG; Paper: Crisp Cantaloupe, Pear Pizzazz, Baked Brown Sugar, Naturals White, Whisper White, Epic Day DSP; Ink: Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz, Baked Brown Sugar; Accessories: Naturals button, Linen thread, Natural Trim, Modern Mosaic EF, Big Shot, Sewing machine, Thread, Dimensionals.
The combination of Crisp Cantaloupe with Coastal Cabana just screams island colors. I put together a coral reef card for a stampy friend who is a huge snorkeling fan.
Stamps: By the Tide, Itty Bitty Banners; Paper: Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Crumb Cake, Whisper White; Ink: Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Black Stazon; Accessories: Linen thread, Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch, Brayer, Aquapainter, Sponges, Bitty Banners framelits, Fancy Fan EF, Big Shot, Dimensionals.
Changing gears a little, I held over a card we made at the annual New Catalog Kick-Off and Open House to show Crisp Cantaloupe isn't only a feminine color.
Stamps: Label Love, Oh, Hello; Paper: Crisp Cantaloupe, Summer Starfruit, Very Vanilla, Early Espresso Core'dinations, Soho Subway DSP; Ink: Early Espresso; Accessories: Linen thread, Very Vintage button, Artisan Label punch, 2-1/2" Circle punch, Sanding block, Chevron EF, Big Shot.
I can't just make cards... that's not me! :) I had to think for a bit to come up with a 3-D that matches this color well. I ended up with this wonderfully coordinating color combo of Crisp Cantaloupe and new Smoky Slate for this girly table ensemble.
Paper: Crisp Cantaloupe, Pink Pirouette, Pear Pizzazz, Smoky Slate; Accessories: Hung Up cute clip, Pearl jewels, Basic Gray stitched grosgrain ribbon, 1-1/4" Circle punch, Bird builder punch, Beautifully Baroque EF, Dress Up framelits, Petite Purse die, Big Shot, Dimensionals.
I've got one more project to share. I just couldn't stop.... I hope you don't mind! The Soho Subway paper gave me the idea to give a This and That journal page a whirl with one of my favorite pictures of my daughter in NYC.
Stamps: Designer Typeset; Paper: Crisp Cantaloupe, Very Vanilla, Soho Subway DSP; Ink: Early Espresso; Accessories: Epic Day This and That Journal, Petite Pennant builder punch, Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch, Sewing machine, Thread, Dimensionals; Font: Candice.
