Color Throwdown #522 using SSS Comfort and Joy



Happy Friday!

I have my submission for the Color Throwdown Challenge #522.
The colors this week are Coral, Red, Green and Gray


I just got me the Tom Holtz trimmer so I wanted to cut up some paper and do some layering. 

I used some gray card stock from my stash and heat embossed the SSS Christmas Sweater background with Ranger Red Geranium embossing powder. 

I then layered  this green pattern paper.


I used the SSS Comfort and Joy stamp set for the sentiment and greenery. 

I used Distress Oxide Inks in Abandoned Coral and Candied Apple to make the sentiment have a gradient look when I stamped it. 

The greenery was stamped with Memento Ink in Bamboo Leaves. 

I also added some berries with the Nuvo Jewel Drops in Rosewater to give another touch of a coral like color and it added some dimension. 


Thank you so much for visiting and have a great day!
Till next time!

Color Throwdown #521 using SSS Poinsettia Background and Mama Elephant Sending Hugs


Happy Saturday!

I was a tad intimidated by this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge #521
The colors this week are Silver Black Gray and White. 

I really wanted to use the new stamps I got and luckily worked out!

I used the SSS Poinsetta Background stamp with Ranger Silver Embossing Powder onto some Gray cardstock. I cut it out with the stitched rectangle die from the MFT Blueprints 13 Die-namics. 


The beautiful sentiment is from the Mama Elephant Sending Hugs stamp set and also embossed with the Silver Embossing Powder. 

I popped the sentiment panel up with the SSS big Momma Foam Tape and  mounted the whole piece on a white card base. 
I then finished off with some Nuvo Jewel Drops in Grey Mist  to add some shine. 

Thank you so much for stopping by!
See you next time!

Copper Thanksgiving card using Gina K Autumn Wreath Builder



Hello!

so....I totally forgot I had this blog post but I am still gonna put up though past Thanksgiving. Oooooppss. 

Today I have a card using just one ( ok technically three with the sentiment and circle) 
stamp for the wreath.


I used the Gina K Autumn Wreath Builder stamp set with Distress Oxide Inks and Ranger Copper embossing powder. 

I used Tea Dye and Gathered Twig inks for the circle and leaves. 

I felt it needed some shine so did one of the leaf rounds in 
Versamark to use the Copper embossing powder. 


This was my first time using this embossing powder and oh man is it pretty. 

I used foam tape to pop onto a Kraft card base.


Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you next time!

Color Throwdown #519 using SSS Ornate Ornaments

Happy Wednesday!

I am so excited for todays post since I am the 
Guest Star Stamper for this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge #519



I was so excited to see that the colors this week were Red, Aqua and Silver. 


I really wanted to use the Simon Says Stamp Ornate Ornaments Stamp set but didn't know how to make the tree work since no green. 

I then thought of those old school Aluminum Christmas trees and how would be a great backdrop for some colorful ornaments.

The tree branch comes from the Sunny Studios Holiday Style stamp set and was heat embossed with Ranger Silver Embossing Powder. 


I heat embossed the ornaments onto some Bristol Smooth card stock and colored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

I used:
Geranium Red
Light Pink
Turquoise Green
Light Blue
Light Gray

I fussy cut the images and attached with Gina K Connect Glue. 

The sentiment is also from the SSS Ornate Ornaments set and heat embossed in silver.
 I used the light gray marker to add a slight shadow since I thought at first looked a tad flat. 

I popped the panel onto the red card base using the SSS Big Momma Foam tape to add just a little dimension. 


Thank you so much for visiting and please go visit the Color Throwdown site to see all of the other beautiful creations and I hope to see yours submitted!

Color Throwdown #517 using the Lori Whitlock A2 Flexi Card

Happy Friday!

Here is my submission for this weeks Color Throwdown #517 Challenge this week. 



The colors this week are Orange, Kraft, Red and Aqua.


I adore this Lori Whitlock A2 Flexi card design I got from the Silhouette Design Store. 

I only used the colored red card stock for the card base and used Kraft for the trees and sign. 

Everything else was ink blended with Distress Inks and Distress Oxide Inks. 

I used the Tim Holtz Lumber 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder on the trees fence and sign back to add some fun texture. 


I altered the image just a tad and added a bunch more leaves to add some more color on the inside panel.

I used Gina K Connect glue to attach everything. 

I just love how this card can be mailed flat and then have so much dimension when the receiver puts together!


Thank you so much for visiting and I will see you next time!

Color Throwdown #516 using Gina K Autumn Wreath Builder

Hey Again!

I hope you are having a great Friday!
I have another post for a Color Throwdown Challenge
This weeks colors are Dark Teal, Rust and Cream.

I loved the colors when I saw the inspiration photo and couldn't wait to play. 


It was just perfect timing that my order of the last Distress Oxide Inks came in 
and Rusted Hinge is in that set. 

I used Hero Arts Fiesta Teal and the Rusted Teal with the Gina K Autumn Wreath Builder stamp set and stencil on some cream cad stock.


I used the dots and other accent stamps form the Concord and 9th Wreath Turnabout stamp set. 
I used Ranger Copper embossing to add some more of a rust color and add some shine. 

I then took the card base and ran through the Tim Holtz Wood 3D Embossing Folder. I thought it looked to blah with the flat paper. Plus I adore that folder and want to make everything be wood. 

I used the SSS Big Momma Foam tape to pop onto the card base and added some Nuvo Grey Mist Jewel Drops for some dimension and shine. 


Thank you so much for visiting and I will see you next time!
