No Bones About It

Sorry I’m late getting this post up for today.  Trying to get things together so I can go and visit my sister and the day of the week completely slipped my mind.

It’s time for another SUO challenge and our theme this time is Mainly Masculine – cards for guys.

So I’m looking through my VERY limited imaged that could be masculine and saw my fun ‘No Bones About It’ set that I haven’t used in a while so decided to go for it!  I paired it up with the Urban Underground dsp and thought it turned out pretty good.

Here’s the details…

  • Delightful Dijon – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Black/Silver X print – 2 1/4 x 5, add to card front
  • Slashed print – 3/4 x 5 1/2, add to card front
  • Very Vanilla – 3 x 3 1/2, stamp greeting using Delightful Dijon and foot prints using Memento Black, add to card front
  • Very Vanilla – stamp one dinosaur using Memento Black and Smoky Slate and the other using Delightful Dijon and Memento Black, Cut out and add to card front, stamp leaves using Delightful Dijon and Smoky Slate, cut out, add to card front
  • Add Silver Star from the Urban Underground Embellishments to finish off.

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see their wonderful creations!

No Bones About It

Summer15HopWelcome

Welcome everyone to the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Design Team Blog Hop where the FABULOUS designers pick a theme and we each off a project based on that theme.  For the month of August we are going to be having fun with the new incolors.  This week we are taking a look at CUCUMBER CRUSH!  This color makes my brain freeze!  It is that ONE that I talked about at the beginning of the month that is the one color I…DO…NOT…LIKE!!!  Okay…but I THINK I came up with an okay card…

CucumberDo you remember Glorious Green?  That was a color SU had waaaay back when I first started with SU (hint…started in 1999…LONG time ago!).  Anyway, as I was building up supplies I bought a pack of that paper.  When SU retired that color…I STILL had some of that pack left.  Yep…THAT wasn’t a favorite color either!  I did find though, I could ‘tone it down’ with grey so that is what I did to make Cucumber Crush to make it work for me!

Here’s the details…

  • Basic Grey – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Cucumber Crush print (Cherry on the Top dsp) – three strips 1 1/8 x 3 3/8.  Round the top corners of one and the bottom corners of the other and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Add 3 large silver Basic Metal Buttons – one to each strip.
  • Whisper White – 2 3/4 x 3.  Stamp ‘foot prints’/Cucumber Crush, greeting/Memento Black, one dinosaur Smoky Slate/Memento Black, the other dinosaur Cucumber Crush/Memento Black.  Cut our the dinosaurs and add using dimensionals.
  • Wrap around the Smoky Slate Thick around panel then add to card front using dimensionals.

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.
