Featured Stamper #174


Hello! It's time for me to choose the Featured Stamper of the week. I used Random.org and it came up with lucky #13 - Evelyn in Oregon and this great card (love that sentiment and that background paper):



I also chose 3 entries that I thought were extraordinarily outstanding!




Such gorgeous work, ladies!

Thanks so much for playing along with us this week. Please join us again tomorrow when Danielle has a fabulous new challenge for us all!

Color Throwdown #174

Hello and good Wednesday morning to you! Broni here, and I'm your host for this week's Color Throwdown challenge!

Since we've chosen to use inspiration photos for our color schemes this year, I decided to browse the internet for ideas. I'm quite sure it's no surprise that I chose a "beachy" color scheme this week! This artwork's colors immediately caught my eye, but I also love the fascinating watercolor ethereal beauty of it.

So, here's the plan. Create a papercraft project using these colors, or colors very similar. Use the linky tool at the bottom of this post to give us a DIRECT link to your project, and please link the Color Throwdown in your post. (Please pay attention to the deadline on the Linky Tool to enter... we set a deadline so that we have time to chose our Featured Stamper.) We always love to see your beautiful and imaginative creations!

Hi, everyone! Barbara here, but the entire team joins me in welcoming you back to a brand new year of color challenges. We have a few things in store for you this year, starting with new color graphics like this week's:

We hope you had a fabulous Christmas and are ready to get back to creating. With that in mind, the design team has some samples to show you to get those creative juices flowing, so be sure to check them all out, and please help us welcome our January Guest Designer, Stacy Morgan of Twinshappy.

As always, if you don't have the exact colors just use the closest you have and be sure to direct link your card to the linky tool below. Also, please link the Color Throwdown in your blog post. Thanks for playing and have fun!
