I have a Color Crush on Pink Paislee

Oooh… how perfect are these colors for a week leading up to St. Patrick’s Day?! These emeralds and golds are just luxe and beautiful and I really loved working with such a fresh Spring color palette for these projects.  Pink Paislee’s Hot Hues has become Color Crush… indeed I DO have a crush on these greens!


I dug up a couple of empty embellishment tins and created a little gift that I would love to get myself. I personally believe that everything is cuter and better in miniature so little tins filled with small treats is just about perfect!


The green patterned papers from Spring Jubilee were excellent for the color crush palette.  I also inked up some Mistables paper to get a deeper green.




The gold “labels” are artisan elements (some of my favorites!) with gold Pearl Ex for a little color and shimmer.  Gold glitter and  a cool Nantucket tassel round off the gold accents on these.



I inked just the edges of the Mistables paper on the card and fussy cut the green pieces from the Spring Jubilee papers.  I added a glitter edge to the Mistables trim, a cool wooden spool button, and even the “U” from the Phantom alphas.

I seriously dug deep and mixed all sorts of Pink Paislee products for this.  It was like a fin little treasure hunt! I ended up falling in love with this color scheme and the end result.  Although the inspiration seems very “Saint Patrick-y” I purposefully made my project to be more generic and usable.  It’s Springy and bright and makes me smile!

AND it fits with the current “Go Green or Go Home” theme at Paper Issues, which you clearly need to check out.  Clearly.  Link up your own projects or just go drool over the ones that have already been posted.  Don’t forget to get 20% off with the SCRAPGOO code in the Paper Issues shop!
