This Color Combination Could Be Tough
I’ve been sifting through a few color combinations trying to change up things as I create.
Do you ever find yourself using the same colors all the time?
I don’t notice it right away until all of a sudden I look at the pile of cardstock scraps near my desk and think to myself… WOW. The same colors are used frequently.
One of my favorite Pinterest boards I have and pin to frequently is my Color Combinations board. You can see it here. It’s LOADED with colors.
I decided to pull a color off my ink shelf that has barely been used. In fact I think it’s been used ONCE. EEK.
Cucumber Crush is not on my favorite list of colors but I love a good challenge and wanted to see what colors I could pair it up with. I thought it would be fun to challenge you too!
Ready for a weekend challenge?
Cucumber Crush -Color Combination
Are you thinking SUMMER? That’s what I instantly thought of when I looked at these four colors together. It screams summer.
I thought of citrus, watermelon, and swimsuits to be honest.
Here is what I created using this combination.
The Apple of My Eye stamp set was top of my list. Think lemons, limes, oranges and sweet slice of watermelon. YUM.
Tips & Tricks
- Stamp the round citrus image in all four colors onto Whisper White cardstock.
- Punch using the 1-1/2 or 1-3/4 Circle Punch and then cut in half.
- Create a tag using Crumb Cake cardstock and the Ornate Tag Topper punch
- Attach the Citrus halves to the tag using Snail Adhesive and alternating with dimensionals.
- Add a Gold Foil Doily for a little extra punch of color.
You are not going to believe this…
As I was typing this I was looking to see what size punch I used for the citrus image. I noticed the Idea Book & Catalog states to use the 1-1/2 circle punch.
Quick thought to myself was… “Silly Stampin’ Up! We don’t have a 1-1/2″ Circle Punch!”
Then I flipped to the pages filled with our punches.
OH MY GOSH…..
WE DO have a 1-1/2″ Circle punch.
We’ve had this since JUNE!!! Where I have been??? How did I miss this???
Just when you think you know everything in the catalog- BOOM! You don’t.
Friends… You know what I’m ordering ASAP?
Yes. That. Punch!
Here is the good thing. I managed well with the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch but I know the 1-1/2″ Circle punch is going to be AMAZING for layering. Oh the opportunities I have missed.
It’s a good thing this is Friday. It’s been a crazy week of crazy and I’m ending my Friday on a great note knowing that I have another tool coming my way.
