Hi everyone! Welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week my girl Jodi is our hostess and she’s chosen some colors for us inspired by this lovely succulent garden.
I didn’t really want to do flowers and I did succulents a few weeks back so I started looking though my stamps and dies and spied Color Drops STAX Die-namics—I hadn’t used them in a long time so I decided to show them some love. I started with a Sweet Tooth cards stock base and added another panel of Sweet Tooth card stock dry embossed with Star Celebration Stencil to add a little interest. Then I cut three different sizes of Color Drop STAX Die-namics from the challenge colors and arranged them on the card front.
Once I had them like I wanted, I popped them up on foam tape. Next I heat embossed part of a sentiment from Yay for You Stamp Set on Black Licorice card stock cut with Skinny Strips Die-namics and adhered it directly to the card front. Lastly, I cut Congrats Die-namics from Gold Sparkle card stock and adhered it, partly directly and partly with foam tape.
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 CTD545 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd545 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!
