Color Throwdown #116

Happy Wednesday to everyone!!! I missed playing with everyone last time....and I hope you can play along with us this week. I have been making Christmas cards all year long---I made a goal to do one a week, and I've been able to keep up with it! It's a great way to get a good headstart on your stash, so I thought I'd encourage everyone with these holiday colors:
Now, if you don't want to do a holiday card, that's okay....I am sure you creative souls can come up with lots of possibilities with these colors! If you don't have the exact SU shades, use something close...you'll find all the other details on the sidebar. Do be sure to link directly to your post and if posting to an online gallery you can use keyword CTD116 so we can find all your stunning creations! Can't wait to see what you create!

Good morning Color Throwdown fans! I'm here to announce this week's Featured Stamper! Thank you to everyone who played along this week!
Drum roll please.........

This week's Featured Stamper is #20 Christina MacLaren with this beauty...Picked by Random.org


Funny enough, Christina's card was going to be one of my noteworthy mentions for this week. I love the clean and fresh design! Congratulations, Christina. Please e-mail me at lpryor1@hotmail.com to receive the Featured Stamper badge for your blog! Yay!

Here are a couple of other noteworthy entries for this week:
Regina Mangum Love the Great Pumpkin and this fun tribute. Fun use of the Matilda collection papers too!
Emily Keaton Possibly the best execution in design for a Winter holiday using these fall colors! Love her watercoloring too!
Barbara Washington I was impressed by how this entire piece looks like it's been watercolored and not stamped at all! Cool!

See you tomorrow for a brand new set of colors. LeAnne is our hostess with the mostess!

Color Throwdown #115

Hello Everyone! With Halloween just around the corner, believe it or not, I haven't really had my fill of Halloween card making for this year. I have made only one card for Halloween and actually, it was my inspiration for this week's colors. Let's have a looksie at those very colors:



I thought they were a nice pick and would work for either a fun design or something very elegant and judging from this week's inspiration cards from the design team they thought so too!

I hope that you get to play along this week! Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors, use something close and try to stay within these three colors primarily. You can upload to the CTD blog here by using the InLinkz tool below...just be sure to link directly to your post and if posting to an online gallery you can use keyword CTD115 so we can find all your beautious creations!!

Enjoy and have fun!!
