Thanks so Very Much–Color Throwdown Challenge #444

CTD444_2017may17


Hello, I’m back with another Color Throwdown Challenge! This week our hostess is Amy Rohl and she has picked a classic color combo based on her equally classic inspiration piece.

Since the colors and inspiration piece are calm and simple in design, I went the same way. I’ve been seeing art work around with just one large framed tropical leaf so that was my inspiration. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base and added strips of Calm & Cozy Chevron Paper Pack down each side. Then on another piece of Sweet Tooth card stock I cut Rectangle Peek-a-Boo Window Die-namics and stamped the sentiment from Thanks so Very Much with Black Licorice dye ink.

I popped that up on the base with foam mounting tape and added a leaf from Leafy Greenery Die-namics cut from Gumdrop Green card stock. To finish off I added some enamel dots.

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 CTD444 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd444 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 May Guest Designer, Amy Tsuruta!

I’m using Blueprints 12 Die-namics for my flowers and foliage today. I created a bouquet of colorful flowers and leaves using Sour Apple card stock, In the Buff card stock, Orange Zest card stock, Grapesicle card stock, Pure Plum card stock, Cotton Candy card stock, Ripe Raspberry card stock, Wild Wisteria card stock, Lavender Fields card stock, Coral Crush card stock, Tangy Orange card stock, Peach Bellini card stock, Persimmon card stock, and Daffodil card stock.

I used a Sweet Tooth card stock base, added some Black & White Basics Paper Pack and then stamped another piece of Sweet Tooth card stock with Distressed Patterns and Black Licorice dye ink. I cut the edge with Stitched Scallop Basic Edges Die-namics, popped it up on the base with foam mounting tape, and added a sentiment from Feel Better, stamped with Versamark on Black Licorice card stock and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. Love all those pops of color on the black and white base!

And that’s all from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by—see you soon!

Grateful for You–MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #333

MFTWSC333_2017may18


Hi, everyone, I'm back with this week's MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge! Are you ready? Here's this week's sketch. All of the details about the sketch challenge are available on the MFT Challenge & Inspiration blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The MFT Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

MFT_WSC_333

This is an interesting sketch and I decided to treat it with a color blocking technique. I used Blueprints 18 Die-namics to cut the top piece from Blue Yonder card stock and the bottom from Grapesicle card stock then hand cut the two strips in between from Wild Wisteria card stock and Summer Splash card stock. I taped all the pieced together on the back then cut the whole thing out with Blueprints 20 Die-namics.

Then I stamped the whole thing with Roses All Over Background and Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder then popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam mounting tape. I stamped the sentiment from Grateful for You on Black Licorice card stock then heat embossed with white detail embossing powder and adhered it to the card front on top of some curled up silver thread. Next I cut the die from Grateful for You from Sweet Tooth card stock several times, adhered them together, and adhered them to the card front, as well.

And there you have it! Remember, you can get all the details by visiting the MFT Challenge Blog. You have the chance to win a $20 in MFT voucher. One winner is chosen at random each week!
Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!
