Color Throwdown Challenge #444

Welcome to this week's Color Throwdown Challenge. I really hope you'll come out and play with us as I'm hosting the challenge over at the Color Throwdown blog. There's some swanky inspiration over there, so be sure to check it out. My card combines new and old from the Reverse Confetti line - Globe Confetti Cuts, Work of Art and coordinating Work of Art Confetti Cuts (the new kids in town). 

I love mixing up product lines and thought the artist palette when combined with the sentiment made a perfect partner for the globe. I started by clear embossing the sentiment and then color washing green ink over it using Zig markers. I used the same greens to watercolor the paint on the palette. Making this card with its shades of green reminded me of our dear sweet May guest - Amy Tsuruta, so this one's for you, girl! Amy typically combines yellow with her signature green, but the challenge colors weren't calling for it, and didn't want to be a rule breaker.

Enjoy The Ride

Happy Thursday! I couldn't resist the current Inspired by All the Little Things challenge featuring the sweetest bicycle and basket of flowers. Of course, Reverse Confetti's newly release Rollin' was the perfect match! I also used stamps and dies from Hippity Hoppity and Candles 'N Confetti

Color Throwdown 443 + SPD Mix It Up 31

Welcome to double challenge day here on the blog! I've got a sweet little number for you today featuring this week's Color Throwdown Challenge palette and the SugarPea Designs Mix It Up challenge sketch.  My card today uses a fun mix of SugarCuts dies and a stamped sentiment from Terrific Ties.

I have so much fun with these SugarCuts 'scapes, and love mixing and matching them with other products to create a sweet little scene. I used the sketch from the Mix It Up challenge as my scene starter, adding watercolored elements from SchoolScape and Whatever The Weather. I topped it off with a die cut Thanks sentiment and Terrific Ties stamped sentiment. The entire scene is situated on a Notebook Journal Card.

Sweet 2 Repeat Blog Hop

It’s time again for the SugarPea Designs Sweet 2 Repeat Blog Hop!  Now that you have the Spring Release in your stash, the SPD designers have geared up to inspire you with even MORE creative possibilities featuring the new products.  
 One of my favorite products from the release is Terrific Ties and the coordinating dies, including Dad Words. There are endless possibilities when combining these stamps and dies. I created a crisp white shirt collar and popped in on the top of a Chatterbox Journal Card, just because I love that die and thought it would be fun and different. I then topped my 'shirt' with a Terrific Ties die cut from blue striped washi tape (applied to a scrap of white cardstock), a wood veneer star. I stamped Terrific Ties sentiment in light grey ink and triple stacked the Dad Words die.
 
 Would you like to WIN a $20 gift certificate to spend on some SugarPea Designs of your own? Please visit with each of our design team members listed HERE on the SugarPea blog and leave a little comment to win!

Thanks for stopping in to share a bit of your day with me.

May Sketch For You To Try

 It's my favorite month and time for my May Reverse Confetti Sketch For You To Try. Please stop over at the RC blog for more inspiration and full details. May is flying by, which means Father's Day is just around the corner, so I used the sketch and the adorable new Miso Happy set to create a sweet card that could easily be given for the occasion. 

The sentiment from One Day At A Time is just perfect. All proceeds from One Day At A Time will benefit The Pink Fund, a definite win-win when you add it to your cart!


Thanks for stopping by and have a great Thursday!

Color Throwdown #442

As soon as I saw the challenge colors for this week, my mind immediately went to Reverse Confetti's Lift Me Up set. I colored the pair of giraffes in the yellow and khaki hues and the sweet little birdie in light blue using Zig markers. I colored washed a scrap of Cloud White cardstock in the same blue as the bird and die cut it with Reverse Confetti's new Hello & Thanks Label Confetti Cuts


This week's colors are in honor of our fearless leader at Color Throwdown - Barbara Anders. She's behind the scenes making sure everything run seamlessly for each week's challenge. Let's give her a hand!

How about a little more color inspiration from Team Color Throwdown and guests:
Amy Tsuruta - May Guest Designer
