SA New Color Hop: Crushed Curry

http://www.stampinaddicts.com/forums/general-stampin-talk/9354-new-colors-blog-hop-june-10-a.html
Welcome to our hop! One of the great things about Stampin' Up! is the color coordinated line of products, and the fact that SU keeps it fresh by updating the color families every few years, and adds new In-Colors every year. This year marks another color refresh and SU brought back a few old favorites and introduced some soon-to-be new favorites. We at Stampin Addicts wanted to highlight these new colors and have put together a fun hop for you today.

If you are following along the hop from the beginning, I am stop #9, the last stop! You may have just arrived from Sara's blog where she featured Soft Sky, another of my favorites. Didn't she do a wonderful job?! If you are lost, here is the link to the main hop thread. Don't be afraid to leave us some comments and share conversations there. We all like to chat as much as we like to stamp, lol!

I was going for a very masculine feel with this one and you can never go wrong with the banner look. Those chevrons are from the big oval of chevrons from the Oh, Hello set, believe it or not.

  • Ink: Raspberry Ripple, Island Indigo, Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Illuminate
  • Paper: Crushed Curry, Island Indigo, Crumb Cake, Naturals White, Raspberry Ripple
  • Other: Big Shot with Chevron and Honeycomb EF amd Finishing Touches edgelit, 1¼" Square punch, Signo white gel pen, dimensionals
 How about a little party in a card! The colors I picked for this card just made me think of fruity drinks at the beach :) I've never drank alcohol at the beach.... maybe I should someday!

 I love me some butterflies, and  I could not resist making this playful and bright card. Can you see the embossed line frame around the image panel? It is really cute in real life!

You are a master at making wonderful patterns on plain card stock. Who needs DSP? :) I love your butterfly card.

I knew you would do amazing things with Crushed Curry! I love the first one and the Happy Hour one. All of them are fantastic!

Love the bright, cheerful colors! And if you ever get the notion to have an alcoholic beverage an a beach, don't come to San Diego....they've banned alcohol on our beaches. :-(

Curry's not a color I would choose, but you've done great things with it. I really love the butterfly card. - Feeling a CASE coming on.
