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!

Color Throwdown #309

Good Morning!! Vickie here bringing you the colors for this week's Color Throwdown challenge!!


I picked this gorgeous quilt for inspiration as I loved this combination of colors!! Yep, I want it!!

NOTE: Did you notice that we're no longer including color names on the color swatch? Although we have traditionally used Stampin' Up! colors, we recognize that times have changed and there are many companies from which you can buy supplies. We are going with generic colors to hopefully avoid stifling your creativity by using any industry names. As a result, we decided to provide you with the colors "pulled" from the inspiration piece rather than actual color names. Is that confusing... I hope not!! For example, with this challenge there is blue, light blue, a citrus-y green, and gray. As long as you use these as your main colors... you're good!!

Another reminder... neutrals are free!! Neutrals include black, white, gray, kraft etc. I did name gray, a neutral, as part of this challenge due to the predominance of the color in the inspiration photo, so in this case gray is a part of the challenge palette.

Lastly, remember if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD309. 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. 

Get forth and get inky!! We can't wait to see what you come up with this week!!

Lisa Henke, is still with us this month providing more inspiration!!
