Color Throwdown 481

Hello, friends.

I am thrilled to be guest designing today for the Color Throwdown #481 challenge.

481

Isn’t this a lovely color combination?  So very pretty!

I don’t have any inks that match these colors exactly, so I went with what I have that was close and created this card:

ToY-019-01

While I had the You’ve Been Framed dies out on my desk for that card, I went ahead and used them for a couple of additional cards.  One, with a different flower color:

ToY-020-01

And another color combo using the supplies from my previous card that were still hanging around:

BDAY-023-01

Thank you to all those at Color Throwdown for the opportunity to be a guest today – I had some much needed creative time while on assignment, and that is time which I am always grateful to have!

And thank you all for stopping in today.

Monday’s Papertrey Ink Anniversary challenge was for color combos.  I ordered the Birthday Balloons stencils from last month’s release, and I have been very eager to do some ink sponging with them.  I used Laurie Schmidlin‘s rainbow color combo to create this card:

I stenciled the balloons onto the panel, then I doodled the balloon strings and outlines over them.  I also used a gold paint marker to add the dots on the balloons and the rest of the panel.

This card is going into the linkup for the Papertrey Ink Day 8 color challenge.

Sunday’s Papertrey Ink Anniversary challenge was to use dies only, no stamps.  That is a difficult challenge, for me.  I absolutely LOVE dies.  In fact, I love them so much that I have far more dies in my stash than stamps.  But when restricted to ONLY using dies…..?

Well, here is what my “Great Brain” conjured up for me:

 

BDAY-021-01

Using my Shaped Sayings and Brushed Off Rectangle dies for the first time here, in addition to my Sheer Basics vellum paper that I purchased during that crazy paper sale last year.  Oh my goodness, we’d better not talk about the ridiculous hoard of paper I have a result of that! LOL.

Moving on…

This card is going into the linkup for the Papertrey Ink Day 7 challenge.

My teenage daughter has dubbed this card THE perfect card, so I must have done something right – LOL!

While I do love a pretty floral stamp, I also love balloon stamps.  I really have a hard time restraining myself whenever I see balloon stamps.  I have used the Balloon Adventures stamp set from Stampin Up for this card, and also the Direct Messages stamp set by Papertrey Ink:

This is for the CAS(E) This Sketch #258 challenge.

In addition to coloring all my stamped images, I sometimes like to sit and do some sponging on white cardstock, just to have some on hand for when I get around to using them and also to practice my blending skills.  I used one of the ombre panels for this card.  I’m not much of a Valentine kind of person, so I turned these Color Throwdown Valentine colors into a birthday card, instead.

Friday’s Papertrey Ink Anniversary challenge was to use a stamp set from the 2018 retiring stamps list.  I chose to work with the Framed Out #12 stamp set to create this card:

BDAY-018-01

I also used some striped paper from the Clipsters Make-It-Market Kit and also the “happy” die from the One Liners die collection, both of which I had never used to this point.

This card is going into the linkup for the Papertrey Ink Day 5 challenge.
