Color Throwdown 407-Smile




Hi, everyone!  It’s Lori is our hostess for this week’s Color Throwdown challenge.  The colors from this week's inspiration photo are lime green, teal, and yellow.  The colors are generic and it's fine if you want to add in other neutrals. 

Once you’ve finished your card or other paper crafting project using the colors, add a direct link to your creation using the linky tool at the bottom of the post.  And, don’t forget to use the keyword CTD407 if you upload your project to an online gallery. You can use the keywords #ctd407 and #colorthrowdown if you upload to any social media sites (yes, we're on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!).  All of the challenge "rules" are in the right sidebar in case you have any questions.

I used one of my all time favorite sets from Reverse Confetti for today's card, Later Gator. That gator! OMG....it's adorable. I used the Lator Gator Confetti Cuts to cut him out after I colored him up with my copic markers. I used the amazing All Framed Up Confetti Cuts to do just that, frame up my main image panel. Keep checking back, it's back ordered right now. Jen will be restocking it as soon as she can, I am sure. 


I created a sweet little teal mound for him to stand on with the Edgers Confetti Cuts. I then decided on another fun detail with two tones of lime card stock and the Leafy die. Sentiment is super simple, stamped in Tropical Teal Premium Dye ink onto the speech bubble from Jolly Holiday Confetti Cuts.

Reverse Confetti August SFYTT



Hello Fetti Fans! There is still time to play along with the Reverse Confetti August SFYTT! Going back to work and school this week, I put the adorable new Worm Wishes Stamp set to work.  I colored up the pencil with copics and used the Worm Wishes Confetti Cut to cut it out. I layered it up on to the larger solid circle from Circles 'n Scallops and the pierced circle from Flowers For Mom.


I used the tiny pinking edge from Edge Essentials to add in a bit of texture and visual interest in the background. Love that set. I tied on a solid twine bow in Honeydew to finish it off. 

Here is the sketch

and a few details you might want to know about the challenge. 
There will be a new sketch posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 1st of each month.
The sketch link list will be open from the 1st until noon CST on the 29th. The SFYTT button is  posted on the sidebar.  Click on it to be taken to the current SFYTT post and link list.
Reverse Confetti stamps and/or Confetti Cuts are required to win.  This is a way we get to thank our customers for using our stamps.  Anyone is welcome to play, though!
You may enter as many times as you wish.
There will be a winner each month and that person will receive a $20 gift certificate to the Reverse Confetti store and claim the title of ‘Fetti Fave. The winner of SFYTT will be posted on the Reverse Confetti blog on the 30th of this month.








Thanks for hanging with me today.

Curtain Call-Aug. 15 Flamingo


It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!



 The LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!
 You should come play along!


Of course I couldn't help myself and I reached for the Fabulous Flamingo Stamp set and matching Fabulous Flamingo Confetti Cuts. I used the Thanks Tag Confetti Cuts for a pretty layer for my bird and used the same set for my die cut word. I cut three of them from Green Room cardstock and glued them together. In the background I added the green polka dots from Whole Lotta Dots

Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs for more inspiration!

The new Toucan of Friendship stamp set was perfect for these colors. I just love these sweet birds. I used just one of them today and added some flowers from the set. I used the Toucan of Friendship Confetti Cuts to cut them out. I also tucked in a few Leafy Confetti Cuts. 

I used the Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts to accent the fun new Circle Band Confetti Cut. One last detail I added was the stitched detail from Detailed Circles
