Color Throwdown #100


Hello everyone, and welcome (finally!) to Color Throwdown #100!!! The team has been so excited for this day to arrive, and we hope you're excited, too! Let the fun begin! The colors today were actually chosen by team member Kristin Bueter. However, you've probably noticed that Kristin has been MIA for about a month now... she's currently away from home on a work-related assignment. So having her choose the colors today was our way of including her in the challenge. You'll also notice one of our long lost members playing along today, too...Kisa Peters! Kisa graciously supplies us with the beautiful blog banners each week and the color swatches, but for today we convinced her to stamp something and play along, too! You'll also see our new Guest Designer for July, Makiko Jones. Maki's designs just make us ooh! and aah! everytime she plays along so she was a natural choice for our next Guestie! And finally, we're thrilled to have eleven other former Guesties joining us today for the celebration! These are some of the nicest, most fabulous stampers and we're just thrilled that they all said yes to joining us today for this special celebration! (Who wouldn't, anyway?) ;)


There are some rules we need everyone to be aware of today. In order to be eligible to win any of the fabulous prizes, you must ...

1. Submit a newly-created, paper-crafted creation... a card, scrapbook page, 3-D item, anything as long as it falls under the category of paper crafts and follows the specified colors. (And please, no "rainbows"... your creation must consist primarily of the specified colors.) As always, you do not have to use these exact colors... just whatever you have that is most-similar.

2. Upload your creation to your blog or other online gallery, then leave a direct link to your creation using the Inklinz widget below. A direct link means it will take us directly to your creation... not to your whole gallery, or to your blog, please. Any links that don't follow this rule will be deleted. (You may resubmit if you discover that your link was deleted for not complying.) You have until 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on Monday, July 12 to submit your entry.

3. Start commenting! Winners will be chosen by random number from all the comments left on the designers blogs listed below. So the more blogs you comment on, the better your chances are at winning, but please only one comment per person per blog. The designers blogs where you will find prizes are....

Tammy Hershberger - Stamp Happy
Broni Holcombe - Splashes of Watercolor
Barbara Anders - Paper Pursuits
Danielle Kennedy - Wild Dragonfly Designs
LeAnne Pugliese - Wee Inklings
Laura Pryor - Lil' Inker

In an effort to save space, please refer to our post from Monday, July 5th for the complete list of companies, prizes and where they are located! There is almost $1700 worth of prizes up for grabs, to be sure to check out the official list! We also refer you to that post for some FAQ's!

So there you have it... COLOR THROWDOWN #100! We're so anxious to get this show on the road and hope you have fun and enjoy the chance to win some fabulous prizes and get creative with these colors! Now go..... get busy! Happy stamping!

Angela Fehr said...

Deloris said...

Hi, I need some help. I posted a card #122 with the correct link to my card in the SCS gallery. The image appearing on your blog isn't correct - it shows the SCS logo, but when I click on it, my card shows up correctly. Not sure why it's showing SCS instead of my card in the gallery. Should I post my card to my Flickr gallery and add a new link so the picture of the card shows correctly or is it ok as is?

You can reach me through SCS pm or post a message on my card.

Thanks!
