Happy Birthday–CTD #431

CTD431_2017feb22

Hi, everyone, welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Amy Rysavy is our hostess and she has chosen a fun palette based on this luscious inspiration piece.

Obviously, I was inspired by the piece as well as the colors, as I chose to work with LLD Sweet Succulents and LLD Sweet Succulents Die-namics. I stamped the images with Black Licorice hybrid ink on X-Press It Blending Card, cut them out with the coordinating dies, colored them with Copic markers, and set them aside.

On Grout Gray card stock, I spread molding paste through English Brick Wall Stencil, allowed it to dry, put my stencil back, and sponged the bricks with Latte dye ink. I stamped the sentiment at the bottom of a Sweet Tooth card stock base, popped the card front up on foam mounting tape, and adhered the succulents, also with foam tape.

And that’s it from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the
Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD431 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd431 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week, including our incredibly talented February Guest Designer, Donna Mikasa!

I decided to make a shaker card for this project using the larger butterfly from the set. I cut my shaker window with LJD Jumbo Peek-a-Boo Circle Windows Die-namics, stamped the sentiment from Beautiful Butterflies Card Kit with Black Licorice dye ink, and created the shaker element using Heat Resistant Acetate card stock and foam mounting tape. The back was stamped with Romantic Script Background, and I filled it with MFT Signature Sparkle Mix Sequins and Silver Shimmer seed beads.

I adhered my card front, complete with shaker element, to my card base and adhered the butterfly, stamped with Black Licorice dye ink, Cotton Candy dye ink, and Ripe Raspberry dye ink, with foam tape. I finished off by added some hearts cut from Ripe Raspberry card stock and Silver Sparkle card stock with Tag Builder Blueprints 3 Die-namics and Tag Builder Blueprints 6 Die-namics.

And there you have it! Beautiful Butterflies Card Kit is now available in the MFT online store so go get yours!!! You’ll be glad you did :) Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!

For today’s card, first I stamped up my butterflies with, top to bottom: Blu Raspberry dye ink, Tropical Teal dye ink, Orange Fizz dye ink, Persimmon dye ink, Sour Apple dye ink, Jellybean Green dye ink, and Black Licorice for the details. Next I stamped the sentiment along the left side of my card base, then trimmed and embossed another piece of Smooth White card stock with Stitched Strip Die-namics.

I popped that up on the base with foam mounting tape and adhered the butterflies, also popped up on foam tape. To finish off, I added some Sparkling Clear Mix sequins.

And that’s it for today—thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!
