Color Throwdown #363 - Guest Star Stamper!!



Hello crafty peeps! I'm excited to be the Guest Star Stamper for The Color Throwdown #363! And boy, were these some challenging colors to work with! Tammy described them as pale mint green, saffron yellow, and ivory. I've tried to match up these colors as close as possible with what I have in my stash. Here is the card I made:


And the inside:

I really searched my paper stash for these colors. (Apparently, I'm not a big fan of pastels! LOL!) I finally found a couple mystery designer papers hidden in a bin that stores papers dated 2010 and older! Whoa! The ivory paper has this amazing design on it, and I swear it feels like a thick, starched paper towel! LOL! The very pale mint green paper that I stamped on was soooo pale, I decided to accent it with a slightly darker mint green. I used the two green papers for the die cut leaves. The flowers were stamped and heat embossed in white on vellum, and the outline stamped and fussy cut from saffron cardstock and layered. The sentiments on both the front and inside are heat embossed in gold.

Ooooh! Shiny!  

I hope you find some time this week to play along and create something with these pretty colors at the Color Throwdown! You should also do yourself a favor and check out the amazing creations the Design Team came up with! WOW! Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you have a great day!
