Thankful for You - Color Throwdown Challenge #618


Hey there and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Lynn is our hostess this week and she has some decidedly Thanksgiving-ish colors for us to play with. 

I wanted to use the word "Thankful" and nothing does that better than Impact Alphabet Die-namics. And since it makes a longer word, I made a slimline card to accommodate it.

So first, I cut Sweet Tooth card stock with Slimline Starter Die-namics and sponged Mini Cloud Edges Stencil with Orange Zest dye ink. Next I added Slimline Grassy Edges Die-namics cut from Gumdrop Green card stock and added it to it, then popped it up on foam on the background.

Modern Trees Stamp Set was stamped with Fall colors (see below), cut out with the coordinating Die-namics, and adhered directly to the background. 

Next I sponged Strathmore Bristol Smooth card stock with Orange Zest and Tangy Orange dye inks, cut the letters, and popped them up on foam for dimension. The rest of the sentiment, from Essential Sentiments Stamp Set was heat embossed on Milk Chocolate card stock and also adhered 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 #CTD618 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd618 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!
