Default What's wrong with Mint Medley??

I realize everyone has their favorite colors and least-favorite colors (and I started that thread on least-favorite colors), but I'm wondering why no one likes Mint Medley? It's not one of my favorites, and I haven't used it a lot (but then I'm a fairly new stamper and even newer SU demo!). Has anyone searched the gallery for Mint Medley to find some cool ways to use that color?

Sheesh...I keep calling it Mint Melody and it's Mint Medley...oops!

I don't know what's wrong with it, I just can't bring myself to buy it. I have all the inks plus kraft white, vanilla and red. But no Mint.....

No Problem! I do have a card with both the ink and the CS in my gallery. And ~ for the record ~ it is Melody, not medley.

I like the color, but I like all the SS colors.

Yikes! I just edited my card's description from melody to medley. Now I will have to edit it back to the way it was! Sorry, Jenn.

I like it!!! I have one card in my gallery that uses it, and more that I just haven't added yet. It reminds me of spring, my favorite time of year!

Someone else mentioned this in the post about least favorite colors, and I have to agree - it also reminds me of mint chocolate chip ice cream....yumm!!!!

Hmm ~ I wonder if Mint Melody and Chocolate Chip would look good together.

I don't know, but they sure taste good together. Think I'll have to send dh on an ice cream run.

Hmmm. I thought that was Mint Melody with the Pinks and Browns on this year's catty cover.

Just had a Mint Chocolote Chip icecream cone!!!

That's Sage Shadow on the SU! cover (along with Choc. Chip, basic brown, close to cocoa, baroque)

I'm not crazy about Mint Melody either, but I found a few good samples on pages 184/185 and 174/175.

Speaking of mint CC ice-cream... how about using the Chocolate Chips wheel on pg 102 with MM? (if I owned it, I'd give it a try....) Would love to see any samples if anyone out there happens to own a chocolate chip ink cartridge and chocolate chip wheel... this can get confusing, and all this chocolate-talk is making me hungry!!!

I like Mint Melody! I use it for baby cards when I don't know what the baby is. I also use it with Lavendar Lace, Pretty in Pink, and Barely Banana. It's not a bad color!

But before I do the Mint Melody and Chocolate Chip, I thought I would share one of my favorite color combos......

Mint Melody and Tempting Turquoise!



Gotta love it!

I don't care for it because when I bought my condo both bedrooms were painted a bright mint green...including the closets! It looked horrible and took 3, yes 3, coats of white paint to cover it up and it's still seeping through in some areas. I ran out of paint for one of my closets, so it's still mint!

So this is why I'm not very fond of Mint Melody...I do like chocolate mint chip icecream though!

I've used it on baby cards - I think it's a great color!! Hope they don't remove it from the catalog seeing that it's not popular!

Guess we had better stock up on it!
Yikes! I would faint if they stopped offering it!
It's one of my favorites!
(Can you tell I'm anxious?)
