Color Throwdown Challenge #570

Welcome to this week's Color Throwdown Challenge - turquoise, orange and gray.
My card uses images from Sweet Stamp Shop which has unfortunately closed its doors for the time being.  I've always enjoyed playing with their fun and witty designs and just love the combo of this jumbo sentiment and adorable cat + cake image.

Color Throwdown 566

Hi, there! Thanks for stopping by for my Color Throwdown post, once again featuring new (and old) products from Paper Smooches.  This week's colors are cream, gray and orange.

I can't get enough of the new Laurels Dies and decided to tuck them inside the pocket die from the Tooth Fairy Die and a partial sentiment from Caffeinated.

Here's a peek at this week's inspiration piece hosted by the one and only Lisa Henke.

Color Throwdown 565

 Welcome to another Color Throwdown Challenge with shades of gray, lavender and white for you to play with. 

I've chosen a 'bobalicious' image from Paper Smooches' new stamp set - Caffeinated. I also used the coordinating Caffeinated Icons Dies set to trim it out and then added a sentiment from Caffeinated Two, also from Paper Smooches.Those specs just make me giggle!

oh hello, paris

Welcome to this week's Color Throwdown Challenge. This week's colors lend themselves perfectly to a watercolored rainbow look and that's just what I've done with SugarPea Designs ParisScape die. I've paired the watercolored Paris skyline with my favorite SugarPea word die, Hello.

deconstructed simplicity

For this week's Color Throwdown Challenge in shades of aqua, purple, blue and yellow! I've used Reverse Confetti's Modern Floral Stack Confetti Cuts set along with a sentiment from PaperTrey Ink. I deconstructed both the die cut leaves and sentiment and then reassembled them on either side of a narrow strip of card stock to create a minimalist-modern-Orla-Kiely inspired card. Enjoy.

Color Throwdown 555 - hello

Hello.
I have my weekly Color Throwdown card to share with you featuring a dreamy combination of green, yellow, pink and lavendar. I'm not usually drawn to softer colors such as this, but I'm pleased with the results of my watercolored efforts. 

 foliage (99867) | hexagon (14228)

I also want to share the inspiration for my card which I came across on my "Cool Cards" Pinterest board. THIS card by Joy Taylor served as my literal inspiration but I used Silhouette cut files to recreate the shapes of her card and then stamped the teeny 'hello' from PaperTrey Ink's Desktop Design (I don't believe it's available any longer).
