Color Throwdown Challenge #349



Hello everyone!! Have you been watching the Women's Soccer World Cup games? We watched the US vs Germany game last night...it was sooo good!!! The US team ROCKS!!! They won 2 - 0 and will go on to play the winner of the Japan vs England game that plays later today. My granddaughter, Mackenzie, has watched all the games and dreams of being in the World Cup one day. If that were to happen this old grandma would be sitting in the stands cheering her on!!! Anyway.... It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!! Jodi is the hostess and I looove the colors she picked...white, kraft, turquoise and orange. They are so fresh and summery!! 



My card features several Taylored Expressions dies and a fun technique was used on the background.  A stencil was applied to the white card base and then Cracked Texture Paint was trowled on. The stencil was removed and the cardstock was set aside to dry. When it was dry, sponging was done with crumb cake and pool party ink. 


The frame was cut out of Toffee cardstock with one of the frame dies from the Taylored Expressions Frame on Frame Cutting Plate. The flowers were cut with the TE Silhouette Stems 4 die and the thanks sentiment was cut with a die from Taylored Expressions that was given away free with an order...gotta love those freebees!!!  The button and cording finish it off. 

Remember, be sure to add CTD349 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!! Also, please use #ctd349 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.

Pinterest Inspired




Hello everyone!! Today I have a Taylored Expressions Pinterest Inspired card to show you....I found my inspiration from this gorgeous creation by the very talented Shannon WhiteI love how Shannon added the circle of flowers over the banner. I changed the design by adding a full circle of multicolored flowers and moved the circle directly in the middle of the banner.

Shannon's Card

Get Well Soon Card By Shannon White #Cardmaking, #GetWell



The Salt Water Taffy cardstock  banner was embossed with the Taylored Expressions Leafy Vine Embossing Folder and the Bloom Where you're Planted dies were used for the flowers and leaves. Enamel dots were used for the flower centers and the sentiment is from the TE Goody Goody Gumballs stamp set. The twine and rounded corners finish it off.

You've Been On My Mind


Hello everyone!!! I just had to make another card with this week's Color Throwdown colors: blue, red, and yellow!! I love this color combo and since I was the hostess this week, I got to pick my favorite colors...Woot!!!

My anniversary was June 12, however, my hubs was on a fishing trip so guess what...I bought my own anniversary present!!! I bought the new Papertrey Ink Nostalgic Notions kit...I just love the retro look to the papers and stamps!!!

The background paper is from the paper pack and the flower stamps and dies were used for the stacked flowers. The yellow scalloped layer was created with the die and stamp from the kit....it was stamped with Versamark and embossed with white ep.

Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!!!!

Color Throwdown Challenge #348


Hello everyone....it's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!! It's my turn to host the challenge and I used the colors from a super cute little boy's sailboat quilt as my inspiration: blue, red, and yellow!! Feel free to use any shade of the colors and the neutrals of your choice...hope to see you in the CTD gallery!!!


The Potato Chip cardstock background was embossed with the 
Taylored Expressions Walking on Sunshine Embossing Folder and then a white craft ink pad was used to ink up the sun's rays. The sentiment from TE's Of Thee I Sing stamp set was stamped with real red ink onto a piece of Doodlebug's Patriotic Picnic patterned paper and popped up with foam dots. 


The Taylored Expressions Ride the Wave die was used to cut out the wave from the same Patriotic Picnic 6x6 paper pad as were the sails on the TE Little Bits - Sailboat die. The ship base was cut out of Cherry Pop carstock and the little heart sticker was the finishing touch. 

Remember, be sure to add CTD348 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!! Also, please use #ctd348 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.
