Howdy, Friend–CTD #234


Happy Wednesday!! It’s time for another Color Throwdown Challenge and this week my bestie, Tammy is our host. She has some gorgeous colors for us to work with this week. I had such fun putting this card together!

swatch 234

I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, added a Black Licorice card stock layer, and then a embossed Kraft card stock layer. I love that embossing and I think it has a definite “tooled leather” look, perfect for this slightly Western-themed card.

So, next, I stamped the bottom layer of my Die-namics Well Worn Greetings Die & Stamp Set with the gingham image and Wild Cherry ink. The second layer was made with Kraft card stock which was covered with strips of washi tape before being cut out. Love this! The top layer was stamped with the border and the sentiment on Sweet Tooth card stock with Black Licorice ink and popped up on foam.

To finish it off, I made another Die-namics Poppy Builder using Wild Cherry card stock and Black Licorice card stock, and the leaves are from the new Die-namics Flower Box set cut from Gumdrop Green card stock. A Gumdrop Green button for the center completes the poppy.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment and the sweet heart from the set:

  1. I had to come over from Color Throwdown and get a closer look at this! I really like the embossing folder you used on the bg. Do you remember its name? And the layers - stamped and washi-ed : ) - are wonderful. and besides all that Jelly Bean green is MUCH nicer than Garden Green any day!!! :)


  2. Gorgeous card, Bar! Love the layered sentiment and incredible looking red poppy flower!

  3. So pretty! That layered poppy is amazing!

  4. Really pretty card! I love the patterned papers you have layered behind the sentiment.

  5. This is one of my all time favorite color combinations and your card does it justice plus! I love your bold flower and the patterned layers for your sentiment.

  6. WOW, I love this card!! Great use of the colors. Really beautiful. TFS.
