Hello–CTD #417


Hi, everyone, it’s time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! Lori is our hostess this week and she’s chosen a pretty palette based on this awesome inspiration piece.


How cool is that? I love that ol’ truck full of pumpkins! I went kinda Fall-ish but no pumpkins. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base and added a piece of Plaid Patterns Paper Pack down the right side. I love it when I have some patterned paper that works for a challenge! Then I cut Smooth White card stock with Stitched Scallop Basic Edges Die-namics and did some sponging with Berrylicious dye ink for a background. I used a Mini Ink Blending Tool and splattered some clear water on when I was done, and popped that up on the base with foam mounting tape.


Then, using Sour Apple card stock, Orange Fizz card stock, Orange Zest card stock, and Tangy Orange card stock, I cut Stitched Flowers Die-namics, layered them up and adhered them to the card front. Next I added Thanks & Hello Die-namics cut from all three of the orange card stocks then layered—you can’t see in this photo, but the three layers show IRL. I adhered that to the card front and finished off with 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 CTD417 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd417 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 November Guest Designer, Marisa Ritzen!

  1. This is beautiful! Love the plaid and curved edge and sponging behind the flowers - all of it, it!

  2. Love this.
    the colors are so bright and pop off the card.
    thanks for sharing.

  3. What a wonderfully cheerful card. Love the bright colors on this terribly dreary day in Washington.


Thank you for your kind comments--they make my day and I appreciate every one!
