BeYOUtiful | Color Throwdown Guest Designer






I'm back with another month of guest designing for the super fun 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:

Navy
Pink 
Green

Here's how I was inspired:


Have you seen the Reverse Confetti January Release?  Those critters are from the Cheerful Pals set.  So cute, right?

I incorporated the navy with the die cut stars from the same Cheerful Pals set.  The pink is more of a Rose palette from Reverse Confetti's earlier release Every Little Bit 6x6 Paper Pad.  I was determined to use that pattern panel for my card today.


I recently had the 'conversation' with my Crafty Friends that stitching is icing on the cake, check out the confetti cuts I used for today's card:

Stitched Squares
Stitched Rays
Nuts About You [stitched landscape]


I was going to color the grassy landscape with my copics but decided to just keep it white.  LOVING all the stitched white panels.

The copics I used:

RV000
RV17 | RV19
G000 | G00
W00 | W1

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

Happy Birthday | Lawn Fawn



Masculine birthday cards are always a challenge.  I started making birthday cards for my co-workers a couple years ago and the tradition still remains.  With this card, one thing lead to another and this is the end result:


Um, 10 stamp sets later!  Not sure that my co-worker will actually know the amount of time and coloring that went into this.  I literally went through all my Lawn Fawn sets pulling out anything that had a bird.


I use my much hoarded green argyle paper from the Knit Picky 6x6.  

Here are the sets I used:

Easter Party
Flamingo Together
Gleeful Gardens
Hello Baby
Jump for Joy
Peacock Before 'n Afters
Say What!? Pets
Winter Owl
Year Four
You're My Type
Foursquare Backdrop:  Landscape



I love all the pops of green!  Here are the copics I used:


RV000
R20
R21 | R22
YR04 | YR09
Y17 | Y38
YG07 | YG17
BG10 | BG11
V15 | V17
E30 | E31
E40 | E42
E50 | E51

I was thoroughly inspired by the Lawn Fawnatics challenge:

Bonjour | Newton's Nook Designs


So I saw the reminder about Newton's Nook Designs' Inky Paw Challenge.  The current one is an awesome sketch so I dug through all my NND sets and decided to ink up Newton Dreams of Paris.


After having the opportunity to visit Paris a couple years ago, the set is that much more fabulous for me.  Let's start from the bottom and work our way up.  The pattern paper is all from Paper Smooches' Rainbow Sherbet 6x6.  The colors are what make me a happy crafter these days.  All the images are nestled onto the Paper Smooches Fab Frame Die.


I used the rainbow stripe panel to pick out my copics:

RV000
RV14 | RV17
YR12 | YR14
YG41 | G12
V01 | V12
E30 | E31
W00 | W1
T1 | T4
W7

Do you see a bit of gold glitter?  I cut a narrow strip to copy the sketch, although it's flipped and the bow is from the Lawn Fawn Mini Picture Frames.


I was inspired by the Inky Paws Sketch Challenge:

Get Crafty | Color Throwdown Guest Designer





I'm back with another month of guest designing for the super fun 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:

Navy
Teal 
Mustard

Here's how I was inspired:


I've mentioned that I'm a bit behind on my purchases.  I was super excited to ink up some of The Greetery that has been patiently waiting to be used.  This card duo features their:  Katie's Cuties:  Gettin' Cozy Stamp Set
I love it that more companies are having their dies cut the interior of the images too.


Do you see that I used one of the Knit Wits stencils in the background with Pumice Stone Distress Oxide?

Here's my other design.  


Same design, different image and flipped to the otherside of the panel that has been cut with their Crimped Frame Die.
