Mix It Up Challenge Time

Happy December Everyone!
A new month means time for a new challenge over on the Mix It Up Challenge Blog.
Remember, this is a monthly Anything Goes challenge but with a fun twist that you can choose to join in on ... or not!  This month's theme is:
Anything Goes + Veggie Stamping
I don't know about you, but I have NEVER used a vegetable in my crafting!  LOL
SO, this was truly a first for me and a true challenge!!

I have used the end of an English Cucumber as my 'stamp' to create my background panel.

Using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks, my cucumber & water onto watercolor paper.

After creating my panel, I die cut my panel using the Memory Box
Memory Box - Dies - Open Studio - Wrapped Stitch Frames
This die set cuts out the frame leaving the inside panel so I simply turned the frame
portion UPSIDE DOWN so that the colors did NOT match.  This added
extra depth to my finished piece.

I stamped the floral image (a very old Paper Inspiration stamp)
and added my die cut Frantic Stamper 'Hello' which was die cut twice and glued together.
Frantic Stamper - Dies - Large "Hello"

I do hope you'll pop over to the Mix It Up Challenge Blog and join in the fun!
You have until 6 PM EST the last day of the month to enter!
I'm so inspired by the rest of our amazing DT 
and I can't wait to be inspired by YOUR project!
As always, thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to stop by!


  1. It came out rather well I think. Love the beautiful colors. [Bunny]

  2. This is super and an update of you can’t have your veggie and eat it! I love the colour combination. Hugs Mrs A.

  3. Your cucumber did a great job LOL :D Lovely card and thanks for the trick

  4. Wow great card ! And I'm with you I can safely say I've never used a vegetable in my crafting - takes me back to school days and doing potato printing! Thanks for stopping by my blog and your lovely comment

  5. Beautiful veggie stamped background and I love the wonderful colors. The silhouette image looks great with it.

  6. I have never used a vegetable either to craft, that cucumber made for a great background! The silhouette stamping on top of it is perfect!

  7. Ha! I've heard about the veggie stamping. It sounds so funny, but just look what you did! How cool! A distressed circle with a distressed ring around it... we would buy a stamp like that. Looks great as a background, Darlene!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me some love!
