Color Throwdown #303



Hello, Color Throwdown friends!  It's Broni here and I'm excited to be hosting this week's challenge.  For your inspiration I chose this fun and colorful photo of some watermelon popsicles!  Yum!  Perfect for summer!

Remember, if you don't have the exact colors, use whatever you have that's close...the color police won't come after you--this is all about having fun! If you upload to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD303. 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. For more inspiration, please check out the other design team members' creations below.  Then let's see your creations!

Featured Stamper #302



Hey, everyone! Are you ready to find out who last week's Featured Stamper is? Well, wait no more, I'm here to reveal! Thanks so much for all of you who played along--the gallery was amazing with all of your gorgeous creations! 

 And, without further ado, randomly chosen Featured Stamper #302 is....Jane!!! And here's her gorgeous card!!



Please join me and the CTD team in congratulating Jane!!! Jane, you are now invited to join us as our Guest Star Stamper for the challenge on August 6th.  Please email Tammy (tammyhershberger[at]gmail[dot]com) by 11:59 p.m. EDT Friday, August 1st to obtain your Featured Stamper blinkie and get details for the challenge.

A few other cards caught my eye this week, and here they are, in no particular order: 
1. Kirsty - love that she colored and stenciled on embossing paste for her background
2. Pat - I'm a sucker for flowers, especially stunningly colored ones
3. Carol - it's hard to mix multiple patterned papers sometimes, but Carol nailed it

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 #301

A big THANK YOU to everyone who played along with my colors this past week!  I was afraid I might have scared some people away with the rather unusual combo, but you rocked the gallery with some awesome cards!

Are you ready for the big reveal???  Our featured stamper for CTD challenge #301 - picked by random.org - is.....
Check out her beautiful entry below!

Congratulations, Sarah! You're now invited to join us as our Guest Star Stamper for the challenge on July 30th.  Please email Tammy (tammyhershberger[at]gmail[dot]com) by 11:50 p.m. EST Friday, July 25th to get your Featured Stamper blinkie and to get details for the challenge.

It was tough to narrow down all the entries, but the following five cards were some of my favorite in the gallery:
#10 Jodi - gorgeous design and color balance!
#11 Becca - loved her grunge and bling details!
#32 Christine - great CAS design with a doily collage!
#42 Susie - adorable summer theme!
#44 Maura - beautiful masking creation!

Stop back again in the morning for a super new set of colors by the ever so talented Barbara Anders!
