Mint is quickly becoming my new favourite colour! (or, I guess shade... or is it hue? I can never remember...) Anyway, I really like mint. It just feels so fresh, and plus, I am probably very easily influenced by trends and designs and stuff, so when I new colour starts popping up all over decor magazines, blogs, and awesome outfits I will never wear but enjoy seeing on Pinterest, I pretty quickly fall in love.
So, here are some of the mints that there are. You may even have some. You may want some more. ;)
I don't have a nice true MINTY embossing powder, or stamping ink -- suggestions for some products to check out?
What about you? Are you in love with mint, too?
satin ribbon (Dear Lizzy Neapolitan); sequins; sewing pins; vintage seam binding; and a few epoxy brads by Making Memories, October Afternoon, and My Mind's Eye.
Mists. I checked out my mist swatch book and found four that were very close to being truly minty: Mr. Hueys mint julep, Mr. Hueys dewey, Mr. Hueys Seafoam, and October Afternoon Sprinklers Miss Mary Mack.
Here is a sample of my swatch book, so you can see Mr. Huey's seafoam and Mr. Huey's dewey alongside some other mists in the blue/green family.
And I found minty alphabets. Heidi Swapp Clear Pop acetate alpahs, felt Thickers, October Afternoon mini market letter tiles, and there's a set of mint corrugated paper Thickers in there, too.
Mint washi tape! Airmail stripe in thin and wide; argyle, wide confetti triangle, a thinner airmail stripe in a slightly different shade, and a paper tape with dotted diamonds.
More little minty things! Buttons from an OA button pack, and some resin flowers.
