Merry Christmas–CTD #423


Hey there, peeps! Welcome to the last Color Throwdown Challenge of 2016! Can you believe this year is almost gone? We’re taking the last two weeks of December off as usual but we’ll be back on January 4, 2017 with a brand new year of challenges for you. Today’s color are brought to you by Broni and I just couldn’t resist making another Christmas card.


I made the poinsettias using Winter Warmth and Winter Warmth Die-namics with Cherry Crisp dye ink, Razzle Berry dye ink, and Sour Apple dye ink, hot glued the layers together and set them aside.


I stamped the sentiment, from Hand Lettered Holiday, on a Sweet Tooth card stock base then applied molding paste through Star Celebration Stencil and allowed it to dry. Next  created a double layer frame: Rectangle Frames Die-namics and Black Licorice card stock on the bottom and Single Stitch Line Rectangle Frames Die-namics and Sweet Tooth card stock for the top. I popped them up on the base with foam mounting tape, added the stamped flowers, and finished up with some sequins for a festive touch.

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 CTD423 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd423 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 TWO incredibly talented December Guest Designers, Leigh Penner AND Kim Singdahlsen! Yes, you read that right—as our gift to you, we have two amazing guests to share their inspiration with you this month.
