Color Throwdown #378




Hi, everyone!  It’s Lori and it’s my turn as hostess for this week’s Color Throwdown challenge.  I found this fun happy mail photo as inspiration for our colors this week.  The colors from this week's inspiration photo are red, pink, dark gray, and light blue.  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 CTD378 if you upload your project to an online gallery. You can use the keywords #ctd378 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites (yes, we're on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!).  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.  You'll notice we have a new addition to our team.  We enjoyed having Amy Rysavy as our January guest so much that we asked her to stay on as a full time team member--and she agreed!  We're also welcoming a new guest designer for February, the amazing Kay Miller, plus our talented guest star stamper, Samantha Johnson. 

I'm looking forward to seeing what you create with these fun colors!

Color Throwdown #377


Welcome friends! I'm so glad you are here for your weekly dose of color with the Color Throwdown. It's Lisa Henke here and I'm thrilled to be your hostess this week. I am gearing up for the love holiday that is right around the corner and as a mom of all boys, I am always on the hunt for a unique color combo other than red and pink for my guys. Kraft, Gray and Yellow was just what I was looking for. I hope you are inspired by the photo, the touch of rustic with a little bit of feminine just makes my heart happy.

If you upload to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD377, and please use #ctd377 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.  Also when playing along please be sure to use a direct link to your creation/blog post and not a generic link to your blog.  All of the rules are in the right sidebar if you have any questions.

Have fun and I can't wait to see what you do with this week's challenge. Now take a moment to check out the inspiration from our fabulous design team below.
