Color Throwdown 402 - Hi There

It's Wednesday, and that means a new Color Throwdown Challenge starts today! I've used one of my favorite Dawn Machell designed stamp sets from Reverse Confetti - Too Cute To Spook because the challenge colors reminded me a bit of Halloween although I didn't end up with a Halloween themed card, and that's called stretching your stamps!

I started by watercoloring a background in the blue and green shades and then colored and cut the images from Too Cute To Spook using the coordinating Confetti Cuts - Too Cute To Spook. Since I decided to NOT go with a Halloween look, I combined a sentiment from Bear Hugs and clouds from Weather It Together. I love mixing and matching the Dawn Machell line of stamps and dies!

Color Throwdown 401 - Celebrate!

Happy Wednesday and welcome to this week's Color Throwdown Challenge! Today just happens to also be my BFF's birthday (Happy Birthday, Jane!), so I thought I'd put together a celebratory card for the occasion using SugarPea Designs SugarCut - Celebrate die.

I watercolored stripes in the challenge colors on a SugarCuts - Chatterbox Journal Card speech bubble and then spattered extra drops of water here and there. On top of that, I layered the SugarCut - Celebrate die cut in glitter gold and a single vellum SugarCut - Party Banner. Finally, I added star sequins from the sequin mix - Warm Golden Glow Sparkly Shaker.

We'd love to see your take on the Color Throwdown Challenge, so please using keyword CTD401 if you upload to public galleries and #colorthrowdown & #ctd401 on social media. Click on the links below for even more inspiration!

Reverse Confetti July SFYTT

Happy Monday!

It's time for a new Sketch For You To Try, so come on out and play along for a chance to win free product from Reverse Confetti when you use this month's sketch in combination with Reverse Confetti stamps and/or Confetti Cuts dies. 

I couldn't wait to ink up Mermaid Wishes again, sigh, she melts my heart! She's a perfect match with the Scalloped Tag Layer Confetti Cuts, so I used that as the vertical sketch layer and bits of washi tape for the horizontal layer. I once again used my handy-dandy Wonky Double Scallop Border Confetti Cuts die to create a wave edge at the top of the watercolored layer.

I really wanted the sentiment to blend in with the watercolored background layer, so I stamped it in tone on tone ink and love the result!

Sweet2Repeat Blog Hop

Happy Friday! Welcome to the SugarPea Designs Sweet2Repeat blog hop featuring more fun and inspiration from the June Release. Hop along and leave a comment for a chance at a $20 gift certificate to the SugarPea Designs store.

I did a bit of ink blending with the SugarCuts - Celebrate die and then adhered it to another layer of SugarPuff Foam for a bit of dimension. Then I adhered it to a layer of It’s A Celebration Patterned Paper that I trimmed with the largest SugarCuts - Stitched Flags

I used another sheet of the It’s A Celebration Patterned Paper for my base layer as well. I love how quick and easy cards come together using these coordinated paper pads!

YNS Dare + Color Throwdown 400

Hey all, I'm so excited to be guesting this month with Your Next Stamp and have a snappy little shaker frame for the YNS Dare Challenge - Frame It!  Have you checked out the July release over at YNS? If not, you really need to take time to do so I'm also on board with this week's Color Throwdown #400 - red, green and white.  I hope you have a few minutes to stop by both the Color Throwdown Blog and  YNS Blog for a chance to win a stamp set of your choice by leaving a comment.

I used Flippin' Fabulous along with Island Fun die set to create a fun little shaker frame using an embroidery hoop. After stamping and coloring the images on watercolor paper, I adhered it to the back of the hoop and then filled it with a fun shaker mix. Then, I die cut a large circle from acetate, adhered it to the front of the hoop and embellished it with a watercolored palm tree from Island Fun. I think this would make an adorable gift bag tag.
