The Color Throwdown 379-Friendship flowers


Hello, everyone! It's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge! Lynn is our hostess and has the colors for this week. With Valentine's Day a week from today, how about  a romantic color palette for this week's challenge.  And what's more romantic than roses and water colored heart shaped sugar cookies with flecks of edible gold, right?   With water coloring so on trend right now I thought these colors and inspiration photo would be fun, I hope you like them too.


Remember, we're using generic colors, so as long as you use the color values shown: Pink, purple/mulberry, metallic gold, and hot pink, you'll be good...the color police won't come after you--this is all about having fun! And, feel free to incorporate any other neutrals you need in your design, as well. 

If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD379, and please use #ctd379 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog--all of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, so check 'em out to be sure. 




I love purple. It's my favorite color, but I don't often reach for it when I create cards. I was super excited about this week's colors. I started with a water colored background. I used my distress inks and smooshed them onto an acrylic block. Spritzed with water and then laid it down on some distress water color card stock. Once it was dried, I gave it a splattering of purple ink and some clean water to added some extra interest. 


Stamps and all dies are brand new from Reverse Confetti. Oh, my. Those flowers just make me happy. I stamped the Garden Bunch with my purple and pink ombre ink and then used the coordinating Garden Bunch Confetti Cuts to cut them out. I tucked in some of my favorite Leafy die cut pieces. The touch of gold was added with the largest Swirlies die and some sequins. The sentiment is from A Friend Like you

Check out what the Color Throwdown Team has created today!

Woohoo! She is with us FULL TIME NOW!!
and
so excited about
this month’s AMAZING Guest Designer-Kay Miller!







Have a beautiful Wednesday!

Reverse Confetti February Release


Yes! today is the day and I am so excited. I bet you are too! It's the 8th and that means the Reverse Confetti new release is LIVE! I hope you have your shopping lists ready, but you might want to hold on a little bit longer and do our New Release Blog Hop to see what else the team has created for you today. 



I couldn't wait to color up the sweet little boy bunny from Hippity Hoppity! I  made this sweet little friend card that really came together quickly thanks to all the fabulous Confetti Cuts. Gosh how I love those bunnies! I gave him a little carrot today! If you are picking these cuties up, go ahead and be sure to pick up the coordinating Hippity Hoppity Confetti Cuts, too. I love the nice clean white borer they leave. 


I used the Documented rounded rectangle die to cut out the cute heart Quick Card Panel-Hoppin' Dots for my backdrop. I added the newest Pretty Panel-Bold Line. I love how it looks with setiments. I stamped part of the greeting from A Friend Like You. I used Fancy Word Confetti Cut to add the word, friend. I finished the card off with a little Solid Strawberry Twine and some enamel dots. Short and sweet! 












Be sure to check out the rest of the design team today! 
There is lots more to see!

Countdown to Confetti-Day 3


One more sleep until the Reverse Confetti Feb. release goes LIVE! So for today we have more goodies to share with you. Jen's got all the release details on the Reverse Confetti Blog. Plus, you have a chance to win one of 2 RC Gift Certificates. Leave comments on the the DT blogs as well as the RC Facebook page. You can purchase all the new release products on Feb. 8! 
Today I've got two cards for you. The first shows off the cool new Swirlies Confetti Cuts along with the newest installment of the religious sentiments called The Lord's Strength. I started with a white card stock panel and stamped some splatter from Color Me Happy. I then added my own splatter with a paint brush and topped it with a couple of Swirlies


I stamped the sentiment from The Lord's Strength in black ink. I thought this would make a nice Thank-you card, so I also die cut the "thanks" from Fancy Words. I finished it off with some sequins and a strip of coral chevron paper. 


I had to show you another great Confetti Cut releasing tomorrow. It's called Basket and it's sooo, so versatile. Here I actually made it into a pail. Two tones of grey card stock and a few silver brads. I love it. I also stamped a sentiment from A Friend Like You. 


 I used a polka dotted design from the Quick Card Panel-Hoppin' Dots for my main image panel. I used the rectangle from Thanks Tag to cut out a window for my bucket. 




Those cool flowers are also a new Confetti Cut. They are from the Flower Wrap die set. So cute! here's a close up. 


Here is a closer look at the products I used today.

It's day two of our Countdown to Confetti February Reverse Confetti release sneak peeks. If you missed my post yesterday be sure to check it out. There were lots of great samples by the DT. Jen's got all the release details on the Reverse Confetti Blog. Plus, you have a chance to win one of 2 RC Gift Certificates. Leave comments on the the DT blogs as well as the RC Facebook page.

Today we are showing off the adorable new Hippity Hoppity stamp set. It's so super cute, and you will want it. Just warning you. I love that there are both a boy and girl bunny included in this set along with a handful of other embellishments. 

I used the sweet little girl bunny and colored her up with some copics. I used the Hippity Hoppity Confetti Cuts to cut her out. I also used the sweet little butterflies and added some stamped hearts from Weather It Together. I also tied on a pretty Natural Solid Twine Bow



I stamped the sentiment along the scalloped Edgers die. I just love that embossed detail on the die cut piece. Behind the main panel, I added one of the new Quick Card Panels-Hoppin' Dots. Don't forget, the Quick Card Panels are a limited quantity product. Once they sell out, they are gone. If you love them, don't wait to order them.  







Thanks for stopping by today!

I can feel Spring coming and it makes me happy. Well, maybe not in the weather, but this new Garden Bunch stamp set is amazing! It is a multi step stamping floral set. I added them to a new Confetti Cut called Flower Wrap! I love that this set comes with it's own flower dies AND a sweet little tag. I chose to leave those off this card to really show off the Garden Bunch. I cut out all the flowers with the coordinating Garden Bunch Confetti Cut

Here is a closer look at the flowers I stamped. I tucked in some Leafy dies in a few different shades of green. 

A few more details I have to point out at that amazing curved border. It's a new Edger die set, and I love it! I added a panel of yellow polka dots behind the curve. It's one of the new Hoppin' Dots Quick Card Panel. I stamped a greeting from A Friend Like You. I love this new sentiment set. The mix of fonts is so so cool AND the greetings are lovely.
