Color Throwdown #312




Hi, y'all!  It's Broni here as your hostess this week!  Can you believe it's October already!??  Geez, before you know it, it will be Christmas! But not so fast!  Let's enjoy our October by starting off with a Halloween tinted color challenge.  Don't you love the idea of packages in neutrals with a big ole pop of orange!?  I do!

We'd like to thank the awesome Lisa Henke for adding her beautiful creations as our September Guest Designer!  For the month of October please join us in welcoming the incredible Tara Godfrey!

Remember that we're using generic colors now.  The 4 colors in the palette this week are kraft, orange, black and gray.

If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD312. 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.  For more inspiration, check out the other design team members' creations below, and get inky! We can't wait to see what you come up with this week.

A few other cards caught my eye this week, and here they are, in no particular order: 
1.  Jenny - I really love these two shirt cards; masculine is hard and she made it look easy :)
2. Jackie Pedro - I love how Jackie has combined several patterns without looking cluttered.
3. Mona Pendleton - I never tire of seeing Mona's layouts and mixed media pieces.

Thanks again to everyone who played along--we love seeing that gallery fill up every week. Be sure to check back tomorrow when Miss Broni has an AWESOME color palette for us to play with--you won't want to miss it!

Color Throwdown #311





Hi, everyone! It's time for a new challenge! Barbara here with your colors for this week. I am in the process of redecorating the master bedroom and I've been looking and pinning things to think about. I really love the colors in this photo, so I'm using it as my inspiration piece this week.
Remember, we're using generic colors now, so as long as you use the color values shown: Kraft, a citrus-y green, an aqua-ish blue, and gray, you'll be good...the color police won't come after you--this is all about having fun! Kraft and gray are neutrals and are part of the palette, but 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 CTD311. 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. For more inspiration, check out the other design team members' creations below, and get inky! We can't wait to see what you come up with this week.

Color Throwdown #310



Hi there Throwdown fans!  It's Wanda here...hanging on for dear life to some summer-like colors inspired by these floral embellishments I found in an Etsy shop.

You'll notice we are no longer listing specific color names on the inspiration swatch and are letting you interpret them with ink or paper colors of your choice (Pssst...but I did have Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Coastal Cabana in mind for my choices!)  Another reminder... neutrals are free! Neutrals include black, white, gray, kraft, etc. Lastly, remember if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD310. Also, when linking up your card using the Inlinkz 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. For more inspiration, check out the design team members' creations below. 

We're happy to announce that Joanne James from The Crafty Owl is our guest star stamper this week!  Be sure and check out her lovely sample below...or visit her blog and leave her some love!

Have fun and I look forward to seeing your creations in the gallery!
