Color Throwdown Challenge #502

Wednesday, July 18, 2018

Happy Wednesday and welcome to a new Color Throwdown Challenge!  The beautiful colors in this week's challenge makes me want to sit at the beach in the warm sun watching frothy waves hit the sand!

For my card today, I chose several fav products from Reverse Confetti...

I started by creating the background using the new Striped Circle Cover Panel and placed Stormy, Navy and Baby Blue cardstock behind the openings.  The frame was created using the smalles Stitched Squares die and popped on the darling little seal, which I copic colored, from Sealiously.  The sentiment from the set was white embossed on Midnight cardstock.

How will this week's colors inspire you?  Can't wait to see what you create!


Pink & Main Diggity Dog

Monday, July 16, 2018

Hot diggity dog - it's Monday!  Ok, I'm not very excited about it being Monday, but I am definitely thrilled with Pink & Main's July release -- are you?!

For my card today, I created a plaid background using two of the stamps in the new Pattern Maker stamp set and inked with The Park and Riverwalk inks! These oh-so-cute pups are from the new Diggity Dog stamp set and coordinating dies which I copic colored.

And check out these new inks!  The colors are bright, gorgeous and coordinate perfectly with many of the pattern papers such as Sunrise, Sunset and Beach Babe.

What is your favorite product(s) from the new release?


Dies R Us - Country Summer

Friday, July 13, 2018

Summer is one of my favorite seasons! We've had a lot of rain storms this summer which the flowers and plants have loved -- everything has grown bigger than I've seen at this time of year!

For my card, I used the following products:

To start, I stamped and die cut the Lawn Fawn - How You Bean  jar.  Using the Lawn Fawn - How You Bean dies, I cut a light blue cardstock and made a wavy trim to the top.  I cut a slit in the top and bottom of the rim of the jar to slip in the die cut stems from Impression Obsession - Strawberry Set.

Using the Impression Obsession - Strawberry Set, I cut the strawberries, stems, leaves and flowers.  The darling berry carton is from Impression Obsession - Tomato Carton.

Come join in all of the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.

Color Throwdown Challenge #501

Wednesday, July 11, 2018

Happy Wednesday and welcome to a new Color Throwdown Challenge!  I'm excited to be guest designing this month and to share this week's card with you for challenge #501...

 My card features several fun images/dies from Honey Bee Stamps!  To start, I cut Reverse Confetti Stormy cardstock with My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle die.  Using Honey Bee Stamps Hexagon Bunches die, I cut Sand cardstock for the outer part of the die cut and Sunshine cardstock for the hexagon shapes.  For the jar and flowers, I used Sweet As Honey stamp set; stamping the jar and word on plaid pattern paper and the top on Stormy cardstock.  The adorable bees and flowers are from the Busy Bees stamp set.
