Welcome Baby - CTD #340


Hello, everyone, it’s time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! This week the awesome Jodi is hosting and she has chosen some SWEET colors for us: pink, green, aqua.

swatch 340

I thought these pastel colors would be great for a sweet baby card. I’d been wanting to pair BB Somebunny balloons with the elephant from MSTN Wild Things and this was the perfect opportunity. I started with a Grout Gray card stock, then proceeded with one of my favorite layouts. I stamped up some patterned paper using Plaid Builder Background and Tickled Pink dye ink, Sour Apple dye ink, and Blu Raspberry dye ink and added a panel to my card base. Next up is a strip of Sweater Knit Background stamped with Tickled Pink dye ink. Then I popped up a piece of Sweet Tooth card stock dry embossed with Starry Night Stencil and added a Stitched Circle Die-namics cut from Sheet Music Background stamped Sweet Tooth card stock. Next I cut and stamped the elephant and the balloons on Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 110lb paper with Black Licorice hybrid ink, colored them with Copic markers and popped them up on foam mounting tape. The sentiment is from LJD Beautiful Baby and was stamped on Steel Gray card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. I finished up with some silver glitter stars, cut with Star STAX Die-namics, Sun, Moon, & Stars Die-namics, and Scattered Stars Die-namics along with a few enamel dots.

Another sentiment from LJD Beautiful Baby was stamped on the inside.


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 CTD340 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd340 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 April Guest Designer, Karen Giron!
