I love it when I find some patterned paper will work for the challenge! This time Plaid Patterns Paper Pack to the rescue!! I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base then added a strip of Watercolor Wash Paper pack down the right side. On more Sweet Tooth card stock, I spread molding paste through Cascading Scallop Stencil and popped it up on foam mounting tape after tying around some baker’s twine.

Next I cut Big Numbers Die-namics from Plaid Patterns Paper Pack and popped them up on foam, then added the sentiment from LJD You’re the Sweetest, stamped with Versamark on Lavender Fields card stock then heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. I finished off with some clear Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

And that’s all I have for you today! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you soon!

As you can see, I flipped the sketch for my card today. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then I did some water coloring on Ranger Watercolor Paper with Peerless Watercolors, trimmed it to the two horizontal elements, and popped them up on foam mounting tape.

The circle element was created by using two dies from Circle STAX Set 1 Die-namics and Stitched Mini Scallop Circle STAX Die-namics, both cut from Sweet Tooth card stock and popped up on foam. I added Happy Hellos Die-namics cut from Brushed Gold card stock and finished off with some enamel dots.

That’s it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you soon!

Fabulous Is a Frame of Mind–CTD #398

CTD398_2016jun22


Hello and welcome to a new Color Throwdown Challenge! This weel Lynn is our hostess and she has picked a tropical palette that says summer is here!

I had so much fun making this card! I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then did a bright watercolor background with Peerless Watercolors on Ranger Watercolor Paper. I popped that up on foam after stamping the sentiment, from LLD Tickled Pink, with Black Licorice hybrid ink. Then I added LLD Flamingos Die-namics, cut from Razzle Berry card stock, Sweet Tooth card stock, Black Licorice card stock, and Grout Gray card stock.

To complete the color palette, I stamped flowers from BB Polynesian Paradise, cut out with BB Polynesian Paradise Die-namics, colored them with Copic markers, and adhered to the card front.

And that’s it from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD398 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd398 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week, including our incredibly talented June Guest, Kara Vrabel!

Again, I started out with a Smooth White card stock base and added a strip of Birthday Blowout Paper Pack along the bottom edge. Then on more Smooth White card stock I stamped the sentiment with Persimmon dye ink and popped it up on the base with foam mounting tape.

I stamped the candles from Make a Wish Stamp set with Gravel Gray dye ink, cut them out with Make a Wish Die-namics and popped them up on the card front. The flames were stamped with Lemon Drop dye ink and the hearts with Persimmon dye ink. I popped them up on foam tape and it was done!
