Always in Bloom - CTD645


Hello, crafty friends! I’m here with this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge card where we have the bold colors of aqua, pink and black to create with.
For my card I used the fun new stamp set, Always In Bloom along with the Always In Bloom dies from The Greetery. I started out by die cutting all of my shapes and then used aqua mist, hawaiian shores and tropical teal along with hibiscus burst and raspberry fizz to stamp all of my images. I added a piece of raspberry fizz card stock to a white card base, then added a die cut stitched black panel and then added my images popping up the bloom and three of the flower stems above my white embossed sentiment.

Have a Pawsome Birthday! - CTD644

Hello there and welcome! It’s time for another Color Throwdown Challenge where we have some fantastic new colors and an awesome art piece by artist Terry Runyan who I admire as our inspiration. 
For my card, I tried to draw inspiration directly from the inspiration photo but used dogs instead of cats. I used the stamp set, Critters at the Dog Park as well as the Critters at the Dog Park dies from Lawn Fawn. 
For my background, I used the Outside In Stitched Rectangle dies with some gray card stock and then using the Critters at the Dog Park set I stamped all of the dog images. I also used the Say What? Pets stamp set and dies for the small dog, speech bubble, sentiment and paw print. I colored all of my images using copic markers and used foam tape to pop up four of the dog images and the dog bowl.

Hey Lady Ladybug Card and Gift Tag - CTD642

Hey there, crafty friends! Today I’m sharing a fun birthday card and gift tag set that I created for this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge where we have some sweet colors for all of us to create with.
The Lawn Fawn stamp sets I used to create my card and tag are Hey Lady with the Hey Lady dies along with the How You Bean? for the jar with the How You Bean dies. I used some red striped Doodlebug Designs paper which I die cut using the Outside In Stitched Rectangle dies and I also used those dies to die cut my white card stock rectangle that I blended with kitsch flamingo distress oxide ink. The sentiment and the leaves, stick, thought bubble and larger ladybug are from the A Bug Deal stamp set with the A Bug Deal dies.
I used the Grassy Hillside Borders die with some new leaf card stock for under my jar and stamped the happy birthday sentiment onto a die cut Everyday Sentiment Banners. The tag for my bag of chocolate ladybugs was die cut using the Stitched Circle Tags and red card stock with a smaller stitched circle die cut using the Outside In Stitched Circle dies. On the tag I popped up the leaf and ladybug with foam tape and on the card I popped up the jar and the three ladybugs inside.

Where it Leads

Hello, crafty friends! I’m sharing another card that I created for the Papertrey Ink/Ink to Paper April release featuring the stamp set, Where It Leads.
The Where It Leads stamp set is such a great set for scene building, for my card I used the set to create a beach scene by adding the seagulls from the Seas of Life stamp set and adding some watercolor.

To create my card I used a panel of water color paper and watercolored the top portion aqua blue color and the bottom in a sandy beige. I die cut all of my images using the Where It Leads dies and I stamped out the steps image in chocolate and kraft ink, the grasses in ripe avocado, the rocks and seagulls in gray and the shrubs in new leaf inks. I stamped my sentiment from the from the Just Sentiments: Steps set onto a die cut circle and added foam tape to the bottom of the steps, three of the rocks and the sentiment circle.
