Fancy Friday - Least Use Color Challenge

Welcome back to the Fancy Friday Blog Hop!
My fancy friends and I are back for another blog hop! This group of past and current Artisans became fancy friends thru the Stampin' UP Artisan journey and well, we love working with each other so much that we decided to continue on with an all new blog hop to inspire you in FANCY new ways! 
 Each month on the last Friday, we will bring to you new challenges of all kinds (photo inspiration, color, sketch, stamp focus, etc)! This month, we are bringing back some least use colors from the Stampin' UP colors. Some examples are Marina Mist, Elegant Eggplant, Tempting Turquoise, Island Indigo, Pacific Point and Chocolate Chip to name a few! I even bet some of your ink pads have dust on them! We hope this inspires you to get out these least use colors and create something NEW! Leave us a comment with your link OR post with the #fancyfriday in any social media if you join in!

I have been wanting to create a project with this cute Photopolymer stamp set called Apple of My Eye from the Occasions Catalog. The images are so cute and fresh for summer!
Immediately the unused Pumpkin Pie came to mind when I saw the orange or lemon slice shaped image. Then I paired it with the Bright Designer Series Paper Stack where I pulled the bright Tempting Turquoise and Pumpkin Pie striped pattern. Do you see how I changed the direction of the stripes so that they blend to make a chevron pattern on one side? I stamped the greetings in Pacific Point, the last of my unused colors.
I made a matching gift package to hold 5 yummy clementines. I used the Berry Basket Die Cut to make this. Just add a paper doily over one of the edges. Then finish off with flags and a tag of the orange slice on a piece of linen thread. 

Thanks for stopping by my post for the Fancy Friday blog hop!
Be sure to join in the fun and open up with unused Stampin' Colors! 
Inspire. Create. Share. That's what I love to do.

This is so cute Cindy! I can remember when chocolate chip was my favorite and not it probably is collecting dust! This set is adorable and you showcased it so well!
