Stake Your Claim

CCMC368Oh it’s that time again…time for another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday challenge and we have an interesting color challenge for you:  Cucumber Crush, Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango.

I do have to say…Cucumber Crush is a bit ‘challenging for me.  It just such a BRIGHT green and although I LOVE greens…this one, well, not so much.  I struggles with how to use it but I do have to say…this turned out pretty goo.

Besides the Stake Your Claim set…can you tell where the hat and dots came from?  If you guessed No Bones About It…you are RIGHT!!!  I had that ‘sitting on top of my desk’ form a project and thought it would be fun paired up with the Stake Your Claim.

Here’s the details…

  • Cucumber Crush – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 4 3/4 x 3 1/2.  Stamp dots in Pacific Point, layer onto Pacific Point 4 7/8 x 3 5/8 and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Stamp stake using Cucumber Crush, cut out (or use framelit), add using dimensionals
  • Stamp hat in Tangerine Tango, cut out and add to stake
  • Schoolhouse dsp (diagonal print) – 1/2 x 3 add using dimensionals
  • Silver Glimmer – 1/2 x 2 5/8, add using dimensionals.  Trim off excess of both
  • Color large and medium Perfect White Accents with orange sharpie.  Add to finish card off.

  1. Well, for not being a Cucumber Crush fan you sure hit this one out of the park! You have such an eye for putting fun elements together! The little birthday hat, the blue dots and the sparkling strip all work together amazingly! Such fun!!!

  2. What a fun modern collage combo! I LOVE Cucumber Crush – I so lamented the loss of Gumball Green but I’m happy now with the arrival of this fresh colour; with card creations like this, I’m sure you’ll learn to love it too!
