Hello everyone!!! We have a very special CTD challenge this week...Tammy is the hostess and she has picked colors that are perfect for a back to school card. We are going to send our cards to our sweet Lori because she will be starting a new teaching position this fall and we wanted to wish her good luck with her new job!!!
My card features stamps from Taylored Expressions: The Pockets and Pages Journaling Notepaper, Love Teaching, and Classroon Cuties with the coordinating Back To School dies.
The TE Pockets and Pages Journaling Notepaper stamp was stamped with Bermuda Bay ink on white cardstock and the Spiral Punch was used along the edge. The Love Teaching stamp was stamped over the notebook stamp with Smoky Slate and Baker's Twine was tied around the panel. It was layered over a piece of Bermuda Bay card stock that was embossed with a large circle folder and a little clip was added. The school house image from the TE Classroom Cuties set was colored with Copics, cutout with the coordinating dies called TE Back to School, and popped up with foam tape. The letters were cutout with the TE Sweet and Simple Alpha Lower and sewing and distressing finish it off.
Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors.....use what you have as long as they are close to the challenge colors and be sure to add CTD304 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!
You will find all the challenge details on the Color Throwdown Blog.
