Color Throwdown 544- Celebrate





Hi everyone, this week Wanda is pinch hitting for Amy Rohl who had a mishap that will require some time off from the CTD duties (wishing you a quick recovery, Amy!). Amy had already picked this wonderful color combo of coral, aqua and navy--and any other neutrals you need to complete your design.

If you upload your creation to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD544, and please use #ctd544 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.  Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please use a direct link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog.  All of the rules are in the right sidebar, so check them out if you're unsure.  And no digital designs will be allowed - only digital images that are printed off and colored.   


Last week I was on death's door. Well, not really, but I did have Strep throat and it was horrible. So, sadly, I missed out on the challenge. I didn't want to miss another one and I loved these colors. I thought about using a whale, but I went with another large mammal, this adorable ellie from Reverse Confetti. It's called Party Animal and it's adorable.  I colored him up with some Copic markers in aqua colors. One of my favorite things about stamping and creating with paper....you can make it anything you want. I then used the Party Animal Confetti Cuts to cut him out. 



I pulled in the coral color with Coral ink blended onto  Polar White card stock cut from the Split Circle Cover Panel. I popped it up with foam dots, you can see the detail here in this photo. 


The sentiment was easy with the help of Navy card stock and the Party & Celebrate Confetti Cut. I finished it off with a greeting from So Many Sentiments. A strip of striped paper from Sweet Stripes


Now here is some great inspiration from the talented design team.  We can't wait to see what you create!

Lil' Inker Designs/May Release-day 3/GIVEAWAY


It's an exciting week around here. It's the final day of RELEASE week for Lil' Inker Designs and there are some fun and fabulous stamps and dies just for you! I love it all, and you will too!

Oh, wait....before I dive in, you can find all the release details over on Laura's Blog. check it out! You can find the shopping link HERE....but you'll want to wait to see what the team has to share. It's soooo good, trust me. 

 Don't forget....you can WIN IT ALL! 

 All you have to do is leave comments along your way  today and every day, as you hop.  We'll pick one winner from a DT Member's blog. Today is the last day to leave comments for your chance to win. 


One of my favorite things about stamping companies is when they release products that stand alone AND also work together with coordinating products. It really allows for all kinds of budgets to shop and enjoy new goodies.  I combined a handful of new release products on my last card. 

Black and white tropical prints with a pop of green are so on trend this summer. I went with this trend and used the leaf images from Think Happy Thoughts Tropical stamped in Midnight ink along the bottom of my card. I cut the "aloha" word from green striped paper with the Hawaiian Word dies. I am soooo so happy Laura created the shadow die with these words. 


I tucked in a sweet Pineapple Shaker die. How great is that texture? I love the detail on this die.  I went a step further and added an element of fun with the tropical drink from Think Happy Thoughts Tropical, colored it up with Copics and then used the matching Think Happy Thoughts Tropical Dies to cut it out with ease. I tied on a bit of natural hemp twine for a touch of added texture. 


Here is the blog hop line up for today. 
Join me to see what the rest of the team has created.

All you have to do is leave a comment here or over on IG (@lisahenke). I will be picking a winner from all that comment. 


 I have a handful of new products to share today. I was so giddy about this gorgeous pineapple set. It's called Something Sweet and I heat embossed it with some Rose Gold embossing powder. I am always thrilled when there are matching Something Sweet dies for a stamp set. 


Here is a closer look at the gorgeous detail of this stamp. You can also get a look at the fun background I created with the new Pineapple Collage Stencil. I got a new spool of natural hemp twine, so I tied some on. 


I embossed a sentiment from the Something Sweet stamp set in matching rose gold embossing powder. Check it out. 


I used another new stencil from this release on my next card. It's called Floral Damask and it's so pretty. I used the Life Changing Blending Brushes and Coral ink to show off the adorable Sasha Kitten stamp. 


I kept Sasha Kitten pretty simple, a touch of YG11 copic to color up her eyes. I stamped the sentiment in Intense Black ink. Oh, how I wish I could live like a cat. Isn't that stamp great?!

Lil' Inker Designs/ May Release/ Day 2


It's an exciting day around here. It's day 2 of RELEASE week for Lil' Inker Designs and there are some fun and fabulous stamps and dies just for you! I love it all, and you will too!

Oh, wait....before I dive in, you can find all the release details over on Laura's Blog. check it out! You can find the shopping link HERE....but you'll want to wait to see what the team has to share. It's soooo good, trust me. 

 Don't forget....you can WIN IT ALL! 

 All you have to do is leave comments along your way  today and every day, as you hop.  We'll pick one winner from a DT Member's blog.

This next project was created with one of my all-time favorite product released from LID. I love all the Cover Plates, but this Cover Up Butterfly die is Ah-MAZING!! I started with some water color paper and the ink smooshing technique using Picked Raspberry and Candied Apple distress ink. Once the panel was dried, I added some splatter, because Splatter is always a great way to accent a water colored panel. I cut the Butterfly Cover Up Die from white card stock and added a sentiment from Spread Your Wings (I love that Laura designed these these products to work together). I white heat embossed it onto a strip of Midnight card stock to make it pop! 


Next I pulled out some Distress Oxide inks and to ink blend over the white embossed butterflies from Spread Your Wings. Once the butterflies were cooled, I stamped the sentiment in the center and then blended on Tumbled Glass and Squeezed Lemonade Distress inks. 


I love how easy the inks blend with the Life Changing blending brushes. Here is a closer look at the white heat embossed butterflies. It is a simple card, but the embossed details really add a touch of wow! I think this sentiment makes a great graduation card. 


Here is the blog hop line up for today.

I have a fun and fantasic shaker card for you today. It's with the new Pineapple Shaker die. I love the details on this die and there are so many ways to combine the pieces and create many versions of a paper pineapple. 

 

I added the Pineapple shaker to the top of a Stitched Gift Card Holder. I added a sweet sentiment from the Be Sweet stamp set. It's the perfect companion to the die. I stamped it in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

Reverse Confetti/ May Release/ Happy Birthday




 
It's here, it's here....the May Release from Reverse Confetti is LIVE! I'm so excited to see you all get these awesome products into your hands. I also want to say Happy Birthday to RC. I have been blessed to be a part of the team for the last six years. 


I have two cards to share today showing a little more of the fun stamps and dies. If you remember back to day 1 of the countdown, you might remember my other Celebrate card, with the letters all cut from the Sweet Stripes paper. This is the left over, positive piece from that card. I lined it with some Navy card stock and added back in the bits of the negative letter pieces. I love the Party & Celebrate Confetti cuts.  The font is big and bold, great for all celebrations.  



I decided to add the adorable little bear from Ice Cream Social. I also added a sentiment from that set to complete my card's greeting. 


I had the Party Animal stamp set on my desk, and decided to color up the cake image. It was the perfect size to fit in the circle from my new favorite tag, See Through Tag Confetti cuts. I simply added the sentiment under the image.  


I love how the diagonal stitched lines really pop in the Premium Polar White card stock. I tied on some bakers twine and added the completed tag to the top of some polka dots from the Darling Dots paper. I did add some glitter to my cake frosting, even though you can't see it in these photos. 







and here is a look at the New Products I used on today's projects. 








Thanks so much for all your love and support this week! 
I thoroughly enjoy reading each of your comments.
