Color Throwdown #323


Hi, everyone! It’s Lori and and it’s my turn as hostess for this week’s Color Throwdown challenge. I’ve chosen this set of non-traditional holiday cards using pale pink, rose, kraft, and green as the inspiration for our color palette this week.

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 CTD323 if you upload your project to an online gallery. All of the challenge "rules" are in the right sidebar in case you have any questions.

Before you head off to create, here’s some inspiration from our talented team to get you started. We’re also joined by December’s guest designer, Sue Lelli, and this week’s Guest Star Stamper, Rosemary Dennis. I'm looking forward to seeing what you create with these pretty colors, for our last challenge of 2014!

Color Throwdown #322


Hello Throwdown fans, are you ready for a new challenge?  I hope you'll LOVE these colors as much as I do!  Last year, just about this time, an issue of Family Fun magazine showed up in our office waiting room, and on the cover was a cute little girl wearing an apron made from this fabric.  I just LOVED the retro combination of colors, so I just knew we'd have to have it for a challenge this Christmas!

If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD322. Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please link to your specific post, not just to your blog.  All of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, so you can check them out there.

The design team has some great inspiration for you today!  I can't WAIT to see what YOU create!  Have fun!

~Tammy

Hi, y'all!  It's Broni here and I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  Did you get any crafting done?  Well, if you didn't over the holiday weekend maybe you're ready to start now.

We've got a new color palette for you - beautiful shimmery neutrals - just perfect for holiday cards, if you so choose!  The colors are Silver, Gold, Dark Brown, and White.

If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD321. Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please link to your specific post, not just to your blog.  All of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, so you can check them out there.

We were so fortunate to have Petra Swart as our Guest Designer in November and for December we are just as fortunate to have another wonderful artist with us.  Please help us welcome Sue Lelli of Card Therapy.  She's a fabulous mixed media artist and card maker extraordinaire.  I can't wait to see what she creates for us this month!

Also, please help us welcome this week's Guest Star Stamper - Joanne James of The Crafty Owl's Blog.
