Color Throwdown #343




Hi there, and welcome to another Color Throwdown challenge!  I found this awesome quilted table runner for our color inspiration today, and I hope you'll like these colors (golden yellow, brown, turquoise and teal) as much as I do!  It's OK to add in other neutrals, but we ask that you please keep your creations to primarily these colors.

Once you’ve finished your card or other paper-crafted project using the colors, add a direct link to your creation using the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of the post. And, don’t forget to use the keyword CTD343 if you upload your project to an online gallery, or hashtag on social media with #ctd343 and/or #colorthrowdown.  Challenge guidelines are in the right sidebar in case you have any questions.

Here is some inspiration for you from our talented design team!

Happy stamping!
~Tammy

Color Throwdown #342




Hello, everyone! It’s Monika here today, bringing you this week’s Color Throwdown challenge. Bring on the colors and balloons, and let's celebrate!  The colors from this week's inspiration photo are red, yellow, blue and orange. The colors are generic and it's fine if you want to add in other neutrals.

Once you’ve finished your card or other paper crafting project using the colors, add a direct link to your creation using the Linky tool at the bottom of the post. And, don’t forget to use the keyword CTD342 if you upload your project to an online gallery or to Instagram (yes, we're on IG now!). All of the challenge "rules" are in the right sidebar in case you have any questions.

Before you head off to create, here’s some inspiration from our talented team to get you started. And, be sure to stop by to say 'Hello!' to our May’s guest designer, the fabulous Tenia Nelson.  I'm looking forward to seeing what you create with these FUN colors!
