Color Throwdown 501- birthday sheep


Hello everyone! Amy Rysavy here as your host for week's Color Throwdown challenge! I still find myself obsessed with the color combo of grey and yellow together so when I saw this room picture I HAD to use it for inspiration this week! The colours for this week are to use grey, yellow, kraft, and white. Remember we just use generic colors (so any brand/type/whatever you have will work) and you can always feel free to add in neutrals (white/black/etc) to make your creation pop!

If you upload your creation to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD501, and please use #CTD501 and #colorthrowdown on social media so we can find your gorgeous creations!  When linking up your creation using the linky tool below, please be sure to link your specific post, not a general link to your blog.  All of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, and you can always check there to be sure!

One last detail to remember, no digital designs.  Only digital images that are printed off and colored will be allowed.  Totally digital designs will be removed from the link up.

Here's some fabulous inspiration from the rest of the CTD team to get y'all started!

I shopped my stash today and boy am I so glad I did. I discovered something exciting with this sweet little sheep from Lil' Inker Designs. The stamp set is called Farm Love and I colored up the sheep and the little heart bouquet with Copics. I then used the Farm Love Dies to cut them out. When I did this I discovered that the sheep had extra cut lines around his arms so he can hold all the things! yay! I know I should have already been aware of this, but I never used this image during the release. So it was a happy discovery! 

I used one of my favorite cover plates for the background in Sand card stock. It's called Quilted Stitched Harlequin. I just love it in kraft. The sentiment is from Hand Drawn Happiness (isn't is soooo pretty??!!) and I mounted it all on a Dual Stitched Circle die



Check out the beautiful creations from the team this week! They are sure to inspire you, they always inspire me!! Have fun creating, we cannot wait to see what you come up with using these colors!!

Reverse Confetti July Release

 Wooohoo! it's release day! It's been an exciting week and we are so ready for the Big Release of all the July goodies. I can't wait to see what you all purchase AND most of all what you all create with the new products. CLICK HERE for the New Release products, but don't miss the hop.....it's full of awesomeness!  

I have two quick projects to share today. I love our blog hop days, they are full of so much inspiration. I hope you'll follow along. So let's kick things off here with an easy treat box with the Treat Tubes. I love these to give little boxes of yummies. Today I filled on with goldfish crackers to go along with my sentiment. I used some Sand card stock and the Treat Tube Topper Confetti Cut


For the tag I used some Premium Polar White card stock and cut the larger solid circle from Falala Circle Confetti Cut and then stamped a sentiment from the Great Adventure stamp set in Midnight ink. I gave the stamp a little curve to fit the bottom of the circle. I colored up the critters in the boat image with copics and used the Great Adventure Confetti Cuts to cut out the image and a few of the waves in Iced Aqua and RC Aqua card stock. I made it into a tag simply by punching a sweet little hole in the top and adding some twine to it. 


 Here is another look at the finished product. I love that aside from the coloring, it was really easy to pull together. 

I also have a sweet card with the new Pattern Builder stamp set and the matching Pattern Builder Confetti Cuts. I stamped each later in a different color, cut them out and then pieced them together. 
 


I used some Premium Polar White card stock for the base and used the Stitched Squares  Confetti cuts for a border and then stamped one of the Pattern Blocks in Pistachio ink on the inside for my background. 


The sentiment was inked in Iced Aqua ink and is from the One Day at a Time stamp set.

You know I looooove all things by Dawn Machel and this sweet set is no exception. I started coloring all this sweet images from the new Great Adventure stamp set with my Copic markers. I created a sweet little scene centered around the campfire. I knew I wanted to use the S'more sentiment. I often decided on which creatures to use based on the sentiment I want to ink up. I used the coordinating Great Adventure Confetti Cuts to cut them out. 


I kept the panels on this card long and narrow and added the Geo Panel in Premium Polar White over Mist card stock. I then added two strips of the green pattern paper from Cue the Confetti paper pack. I set it up up on a Sand card base. I stamped the sentiment from Greatest Adventure in Midnight ink onto the double ended flag banner piece from Tag Me Confetti Cuts. Here's a closer look at all the details.

Reverse Confetti July Countdown-Day 2

 It's such an exciting four days coming at you. I'm so glad you are here.  It's time for Countdown to Confetti.....the July release sneak peeks start today. All the new stamps, dies, and paper will be available for purchase on July 8! We kicked things off yesterday, if you missed it, be sure to scroll down.

Sooooo, todays stamps had me all full out squeal when I opened my DT package, especially the Mod Stack! It is soooo so cool and I love the texture on the stamps. The two sets we are sharing about today are called Mod Floral Stack, Pattern Builder.
First up from me is my card with the Mod Floral Stack....if I had to pick a favorite from this release it might just be this first card. I picked a rainbow of RC ink colors: Grape soda, Iced Aqua, Grass, Bumblebee, Orange Fizz, and Salsa. I stamped up the Mod Floral Stack starting with the largest image and worked my way up, ending with the small heart image from Kindness Cards


I added a strip of the awesome rainbow striped paper from the new Cue the Confetti 6x6 paper pack along the left edge of my card. I love a simple white sentiment embossed on black card stock (Midnight cs) with anything rainbow, so that's what I did here. The font on the sentiments in Mod Floral Stack is sooooo, so pretty! Here's a close up. 



My next card I wanted to show off the Mod Floral Stack Confetti Cuts. I inked three of the blooms from Mod Floral Stack in a trio of RC inks: Blueberry, Lagoon, and Olive. I layered them up and added an enamel dot over top. 


I love these colors with Stone and Sand, which are great neutrals to pull this card all together. I cut a window from the Stone card stock with the large solid circle die from Falala Circle Confetti Cuts. This circle window was the perfect excuse to show off the awesome new background die, Striped Circle Cover Confetti Cuts. It is such an awesome detailed die. I love the I stamped a sentiment from Mod Floral Stack in Lagoon ink to the bottom right of the cut out window. 


I loved these colors so much from the last card, I decided to use them again on my last card for today with the new stamp set Pattern Builder. I masked off the bottom half of a 4.25 x 5.5 Premium Polar White card stock on the diagonal and got busy building my floral pattern with the textured images in the set. 

I then added the bottom half of the Way Stripes Confetti Cut in Sand card stock on the bottom right side of the card. I stamped a sentiment from Mod Floral Stack in Lagoon ink. That scripty font just makes me smile.
