Color Throwdown 498- hello flamingo


Hello there!  Lynn is our hostess for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge #498!  She found this week’s inspiration photo while searching for ideas for her daughter’s birthday cake and thought the flamingos and colors were fun for summer. I hope you'll like creating with the colors Peach, Pale Pink, Hot Pink and Green for this week's challenge and I hope they inspire you to create something special. We are using generic colors, so as long as you use the color values shown, you are all set! As always, please feel free to incorporate any neutrals that you need in your design as well!

If you upload to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD498, and please use #ctd498 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog. All of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, please check them out if you are in doubt! 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.


I love the flamingo from Think Pink. I colored up the bird and added a touch of green from the challenge colors with the puddle image from the set.I added the hot pink color to the flamingo and then used the Think Pink Confetti Cuts to cut it out. 


 I layered the Hello Square Confetti Cuts. I cut it out in Premium Polar White card stock and then blended in Peach and Piggy Bank ink to finish off the challenge colors. 






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!!

CAS(e) this Sketch #276- Seriously, You Rock!

I am playing along with the current CAS(e) this Sketch challenge. it has been a really long time since I have linked up to this one. I loved the stars in the background and I took this sketch literal. I die cut stars from the Reverse Confetti set Seeing Stars Confetti Cuts. I cut them from Bumblebee, Stone, and Stormy card stocks. 


I RARELY combine companies on a card, but for this one I added some Lil' Inker Designs for my sentiment. I LOVE the Seriously word die and finished off the sentiment with the Seriously Awesome stamp set, in Stormy ink. This card only took me 8 minutes to create and it's perfect for the occasion I needed it for. 




Stop by the challenge Blog
to see the sketch. 


Thanks for stopping by. 
Hugs, 
Lisa

Color Throwdown 497-with sympathy

 


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

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 CTD497 if you upload your project to an online gallery. You can use the keywords #ctd497 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.  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.

Sadly, I had to send a sympathy card last week, so I worked ahead with these colors and made this card. Thankfully I had the gorgeous Tall Blooms stamp set with the perfect sentiment and beautiful flowers. I watercolored them up with some RC inks in Bellini, Coral, Pistachio, and Iced Aqua. 

I added in the soft Buttercup card stock cut with the Woodgrain Confetti Cut and then layered that over the Eyelet Cover Panel in Premium Polar White card stock. The sentiment from Tall Blooms was stamped in Midnight ink. 



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!!

Lil' Inker Designs June Release-Day 2

It is day two of the June Release by Lil' Inker Designs. If you missed the kick off yesterday, be sure to stop by and leave some love for a chance to WIN the full release. We are back today with more of the new release products. 

Today I am sharing some baby love. I combined a whole lot of JUST RELEASED dies to make this card. I started with the awesome background. It's called Perfectly Plaid Cover die and it looks great alone or layered up (by flipping the die around) to create a multi-colored plaid.

 I then cut out the onesie from Baby Onesie Shaker die. Isn't it great that you can use it in multiple ways?? I obviously didn't create a shaker, instead I just gave it a quick run thru my die cut machine. Check out the stitched detail, love it! I then tucked in some of the gorgeous XL Perky  Posie dies. Dude! those flowers are some of my faves from LID in the original size (check 'em out here), so I was stoked when Laura created them in this jumbo size. yay! Oh, how I  love variety! I stamped a sentiment from Little One stamp set onto the onsie die cut and then added in one of the Baby Word Tags dies. Soft, pretty, and oh-so-sweet!

Lil' Inker Designs June Release

It's finally time and I am super excited. I have been sharing sneak peek sover on Instagram this past week. I am happy to finally share my finished projects with all the JUST Released goodies from LID. I know you are going to love them. The coffee products are just fabulous....so let's start with some of those today.  Oh, wait....before I dive in, you can find all the release details over on Laura's Blog. check it out here! You can find the shopping link HERE....but you'll want to wait to see what the team has to share. it's good, trust me. 

Ok. Let's dive in.....The To Go Coffee Cup Gift Card Holder die is my favorite from this release. OMG. It makes giving gift cards so easy and super cute....I love starbucks gift cards and it is THE gift for all teens these days. I used that die, along with the other coffee products and made this sweet little matching duo. 

I started this first card with the Dual Stitched Mats-Circle die to create a window for my customized coffee mug. I used the Coffee Talk 2 dies to make the mug, spoon and heart steam details. So sweet! I stamped the sentiment in navy ink from the Coffee Talk 2 stamp set. WOW! have you seen this one yet?? It is a GINORMOUS sentiment set with amazing coffee themed sentiments. 


Here's the finished To Go Coffee Cup Gift Card Holder die. I colored up the Super Coffee Die & stamp set with copics and added it to the top of the cup. 


Along the bottom of the cup, I stamped a sentiment from Coffee Talk 2 stamp set in Midnight ink.  

Here you is the gift card holder open, so you can see how the gift card tucks inside. The decorated sleeve slides off, just like a real coffee sleeve. 


Here is the blog list for today!
