Peace Joy Love | Color Throwdown Guest Designer




Hello!  I'm super excited to be the December Guest Designer for the Color Throwdown!  If you've been following me for any amount of time, you know that I LOVE this challenge.  Check out this week's awesome color challenge: 

Lime Green | Hot Pink | White

Here's how I was inspired:


I went NEON!  It's been a while since I've used a neon palette, I had so much fun designing this!  Let's start from the bottom and work our way up!

I used the Right At Home Grid Background Stamp with Hero Arts Neon Red Ink.  Isn't it so much fun?



My frame is from Reverse Confetti Stitched Note & Frames.  This is truly a staple for my card designing!

The stamps are:

Lawn Fawn How You Bean?  
Lawn Fawn How You Bean? Christmas Cookie Add-On


The cookies have been colored with Spectrum Noir:

FL1 | FL2
CG1 | CG3
TN1 | TN2

I can't wait to see how the Color Throwdown team was inspired:

December Creative Hop | Reverse Confetti




Happy Sunday!  Today is the 8th of the month which means it is the Reverse Confetti Creative Hop!  You should have arrived here from Heather Hoffman's blog.  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning which is the Reverse Confetti blog.

Today we are featuring the new Snowflakes stamp set + coordinating confetti cuts:


See details about these products on the Reverse Confetti blog and respective product pages. These products are exclusive to the Reverse Confetti store and can not be purchase at other retailers.

Here's how I was inspired:


I managed to create a bunch of cards using an Iced Aqua and RC Aqua color palette!  I love my MISTIs and they really made the process go so much quicker!

I used the same design for both colors.  Although it isn't readily noticeable, there are some snowflakes stamped, some clear heat embossed and some sparkle heat embossed.


What I really love about this design is that it is postal friendly!  So happy about that because so many of my other cards will probably end up going out as parcels.


Although you can't tell by the photos, I did manage to use all the sentiments in this set.


I've been super smitten with the RC Aqua color so both styles make me a happy crafter.  


I finished off my card with a white shimmer mist.  So much texture on a postal friendly design.


Up next is my teamie, Kathy Schweinfurth!  I can't wait to see how she was inspired!  In case you get lost along the way, here's the complete hop listing.

Warm Wishes | Lawn Fawn



Today I'm sharing a card featuring some Lawn Fawn products that I finally inked up!  My card starts with a Scalloped Rectangle panel of Snow Day Remix.


I layered a Stitched Mountain Border cut from packing paper and topped with their coordinating snow caps.  The stitched Pond is also cut from the Snow Day Remix.


I managed to combined:

Snow Bunnies for Simon Says Stamp
Mice on Ice
Believe in Yourself
Thanks a Latte [sentiment]

That Jackalope kills me.  Love all those critters!

Stay Cozy | Color Throwdown Designer




Hello!  I'm super excited to be the December Guest Designer for the Color Throwdown!  If you've been following me for any amount of time, you know that I LOVE this challenge.  Check out this week's awesome color challenge: 

Turquoise | Green | Gold | White

Here's how I was inspired:


I'm shaking things up with some sets from Ellen Hutson LLC!  I started off with the Alpine Window by Julie Ebersole for Essentials by Ellen.  I love that the images can easily be layered.  I decided to just color the trees and add a bit of gold glitter cardstock to back the windows of the cabin.


I first started off with my Iced Aqua panel and die cut the circle.  I adhered a panel of acetate behind it and then layered my Alpine Window panels.  I should have then stamped my sentiment but got carried away with my foam adhesive and shaker contents.


I knew better than to try to either peel off all the foam adhesive on the back or to try to even think of stamping my sentiment directly on the Iced Aqua panel.  So I ended up finishing off my card with the Stay Cozy sentiment heat embossed in gold on a white strip!  It is from the Over the River by Julie Ebersole for Essentials by Ellen.

I can't wait to see how the Color Throwdown team was inspired:
