Cantaloupe, Brown Sugar and Wisteria

Sounds like a weird recipe doesn't it?  Well, it would be if we were talking about the fruit, the sweetener and the flower.  Instead, these are the colors for this week's Splitcoaststampers color challenge.

The challenge was super easy for me this week as I had already embossed this piece of Crisp Cantaloupe Coredinations cardstock and stamped the image when I was visiting Karen over the 4th.  She is so generous with her tools and supplies and I love using the Big Shot and new stamps while I'm there.  I just had to add color and matting.

The stamp set is Cherish Friendship.  I colored the chair with markers and watercolor crayons.  To get the twine colored, I used a Darlene DeVries technique.  Add ink to your craft mat, spray with water and then roll some white twine around in the mixture until dyed.  The 'dessert' this week is to use a clip so my clip is from Tim Holtz.

I also did the coloring and assembly for this card I stamped and embossed at Karen's.  I'm not sure what stamp set this image is from but I really like it. It is delicate but not so small that I can't control the blender pen.  The blue cardstock is Island Indigo, now part of the Regals collection.

Speaking of all these great colors, yesterday I posted about my updated cardstock deck.  I had to update as Stampin' Up! has added some new colors and brought back a lot of older In Colors.  Here's the post.

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be back tomorrow or Friday with a new scrapbook page and video.


  1. Love the cards, Lisa. The second image is Serene Spring by Stampin' Up. It's one of my favorite sets. The image is versatile enough to use several types of sentiments with it.

  2. Your cards are so beautiful.
    I love these images and you coloured them up beautifully.

  3. Definitely Serene Spring. One of my favourite sets. What a gorgeous card!
