Color + 1 Week at Dynamic Duos

This is my second post of the day.
It's a short scroll down for Less Is More!!


When there is a fifth weekend of the month, Dynamic Duos has a really fun challenge - we pick one color and YOU get to pick the second color!  For this month, our pick is Crumb Cake.  ANYTHING goes with Crumb Cake so I hope you all play along.


I have paired it with the new Stampin' Up color Primrose Petals for this very clean and simple card...


Friendship

I am not the most trendy person...but I am loving the hexagon trend!

The other design team members, as usual, have put together some amazing cards for your viewing pleasure.  You will see Crumb Cake paired with greens, and blues, and oranges, and pinks, and even black.


Check them out for inspiration and then play along.  REMEMBER: Just TWO colors plus neutrals.  We have this handy-dandy little graphic to "define" the neutrals!

  • Stamps: Papertrey Ink Happy Hexagons (a $5 set!) and Quilter's Sampler
  • Paper: white
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Crumb Cake and Primrose Petals
  • Accessories: Stampin' Up Neutral buttons, Cuttlebug Pinking Stitch embossing folder (new release)

Kim! This is so crisp and clean. Love the Primrose and Kraft together. The button is the perfect finish and that EF just frames it out beautifully. I am patiently (???) awaiting my PTI order. Love those little hexagons too!

LeAnne said...

Oh my goodness, the hexagon creation is beautiful. Love the two colors in the sentiment. Have ordered the hexagon stamp from PTI and so very sorry the die is not available yet. Can't wait. And your
never give up card makes me want to order more memory box die. Love them. And love the way you put the card together. Just found your blog today and can definitely say I wil be visiting you frequently. Thanks for your great inspiration!
