Default I Love Cool Caribbean!!

I am so glad to finally have this color. I've been wishing for an aqua for years, and now I finally have it.

It has not disappointed me!!

I just did a card with cool caribbean, taken with teal and chocolate chip and it's such a pretty combination.

mmferg gave us the color combo with cool caribbean, cameo coral and chocolate chip and it's gorgeous too!

So have you come up with any great cool caribbean combos?? Please share!!

me either, but it's kind of a correct gnome coloring and I already had the fine lace stamped on the ruby red so I just reached for it and used it.

I didn't think I would like it - b/c I'm not fond of that shade of blue - but man it really adds a softness to cards. I have loved everything I have made with that color.

Oooo, that sounds interesting! I bet it looks great. I never think to use Not Quite Navy, didn't use to think I liked it. But Emily uses it a lot in her color challenges and I've discovered that I really like it with certain colors. Thanks for the tip!!

I saw a card in the gallery using Cool Caribbean with Cameo Coral and thought it was such a great combo, I had to try it too. Here's my CC & CC card --

Cool Caribbean is my favorite! I've always loved light aqua (it was one of our wedding colors!) so when SU! came out with this I was turning handsprings.

I got a swap card that was ultra cool: Cool Caribbean with Basic Black....so SUAVE!!!!

I love this color so much because it works so well with the retro look. I just uploaded a Pattern of Friendship card using it with Teal and dark brown that I made a couple of days ago. I love how it works with so many colors. If they really do discontinue it I will have to buy about a dozen packages!

You all are killing me, your cards are so gorgeous. I swore I wasn't going to buy any of the in colors. Why have stamp pads and inks that I can't match to paper after this year. I love CC so much though. Do you really think SU! will kiss it goodbye forever? What are you guys going to do paper wise near the end of the year, buy 20 packs to last forever? Seriously, is it just me who is scared to buy the in color stuff or do you see yourself using the cc ink with other papers and not worry if you run out of the cc paper?

I will also have to buy lots of caribbean and cranberry at the end of the year.

You can also match Caribbean with Artichoke, looks really neat. I just love this color.
