CTD 608: Welcome Fall!

Thanks for stopping by today!
I've got this week's color combo for Color Throwdown 608 and it's a gorgeous one at that!

I used fall images from Year of the Rat from The Cat's Pajamas and colored them in with Zig markers in orange, pink, peach and yellow. I also added touches of colored pencil shading here and there for depth.

CTD 607 - Punny Farm

I have a fun, interactive card for you this week featuring stamps and dies from two of my favorite companies, both near and dear to my heart: SugarPea Designs & The Cat's Pajamas

Whatever The Weather
Barn To Be Wild
Peek-A-Boo Frames

Each of the farm animals is watercolored in this week's Color Throwdown Challenge colors - yellow, purple and blue. Have you heard the poem, The Purple Cow? I remember reading it in our ancient set of Childcraft: The How & Why Library waaay back in my younger years and there was an accompanying picture of a purple cow. Growing up on a dairy farm in WI, I thought it was the funniest thing I'd ever seen. Anywho, that's where the inspiration for my card started. Oh my gosh, I just searched and found it! Anyone else remember this?

Childcraft, I love these books | Purple cow, Poetry for kids, Cow

 The first view is all buttoned up with sentiments from SugarPea's Barn To Be Wild stamped on interactive Peek-A-Boo Frames from TCP.  The cloud and sun die cuts are from SugarPea, but I'm sorry to say they may not be available any longer.

This second view shows the windows opened revealing the adorable farm crew from SugarPea's Barn To Be Wild.

Finally, a peek at all of the elements before I put everything together. I love these punny sentiments and know just the special recipient who shares my pun-loving sense of humor. 🖤

Time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge and I've got a fun, whimsical card to share featuring images from Picket Fence Studios and sentiment from Julie Ebersole's Totally Random Sayings Vol.3. I love how the two styles are in perfect tandem. 

Coloring in my usual - Zig Clean Color Brush Markers in peach, aqua and kraft.

And now for more color inspiration...

Color Throwdown #605 - Gnome Love

Imagine my excitement when my recent order from The Cat's Pajamas arrived (yesterday) freaky fast! That's the service you can always expect from Alma, owner of TCP Stamps. Yep, she's the real deal.

I just had to put those new stamps and dies to use for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge and managed to wrangle about 4 different products into my typical clean and simple design.

Besides my gnome-y crush, I just love those crisp, clean numbers and the stitched detail of the frame.
