Thanks a Bunch - Color Throwdown Challenge #637


Hello, welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Lori is our hostess today and she's challenging us to play with to some decidedly Spring colors!

I got out my old standby, Flower Silhouettes Stamp Set and Die-namics for this card. Seriously, if you don't have this set you need it! I've lost track of how many times I've used it and it's diversity is it's strong suit--SO much room for creativity with this set. 

Anyway, first I spread molding paste on Kraft card stock through Basket Weave Stencil and set it aside to dry. 

Next I stamped the images on Smooth White card stock in the challenge colors (I used Cotton Candy, Butterscotch, and the new Prickly Pear dye inks) and cut them out with the coordinating Die-namics. By this time the background was dry and I adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape. I gathered up the flowers and tied them with hemp cord, then adhered them to the card front, also with foam tape.

To finish off I heat embossed a sentiment from Bitty Thanks & Gratitude on Prickly Pear card stock cut with Elegant Folded Banner Die-namics and adhered it 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 #CTD637 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd637 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!
