Pool Party Throwdown

This week at the Color Throwdown challenge blog, Broni is our hostess with the sweetest mix of summer colors…pink, aqua, yellow, and lime! 

I took these colors to the pool with Papertrey Ink’s “Floating By” stamps and dies!

I also used Papertrey Ink’s “Pool Water” stencils to make the background by inking over the top with aqua inks, then spraying some aqua glimmer mist over the top. Some fun bubble embellishments and lovely flowers and leaves from The Stamp Market’s “Tropical Vibes” set to complete my sunny party!

Tin Bucket Floral Throwdown

It’s my turn this week to host The Color Throwdown! A mix of brights and vintage reminiscent of a garden party…fuschia, green, gray, and terracotta!


I used The Greetery’s “Print Shop: Floral Frame” stamps, stencil, and dies for my card…

I stenciled and stamped the floral border, then filled my Papertrey Ink “Vase #7” with matching flowers! I love how the bits of terracotta (Rusty Hinge Distress Oxide Ink) really make the fuschia flowers POP!

Greenhouse Throwdown

It’s the 750th challenge at the The Color Throwdown  this week, how amazing! Wanda chose such lovely, light pastels…teal, gray, and pink!

I made a card with The Greetery’s “Greenhouse” die!

Also used The Greetery’s “Pot-Pourri” stamps and dies, “Macra-made For You,” and “BotaniCuts : Wildflower Mix.”

The outside sentiment is from Papertrey Ink’s “Treasured Teacher” and the little wooden door opens to reveal a sentiment from vintage Papertrey Ink’s “Mixed Messages!”
