Color Throwdown #59

There was a fabulous Color Throwdown this weekend. The challenge was to use the colors Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie, and Chocolate Chip. This is what I came up with:

This card will be a little thick to mail, but I love the way the ribbons look. I cased the ribbon idea (still trying to figure out the blog I got it from to give credit). I used a retired orange ribbon, and paired it with Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon. The stamped images were from the Paradise stamp set. I inked the image in Ruby red, and then rocked the image on chocolate chip to create the brown colored tips. The sentiment came from the Full of Life stamp set. It was a great color combination and perfect for fall.


  1. Great design! Love those leaves and your beautiful ribbons! Thanks so much for playing the Color Throwdown!

  2. Very pretty, and that ribbon treatment is fabulous! Thanks for playing the Throwdown!

  3. Very pretty! I love to layer ribbons, it is such a rich look! TFP!


Welcome to my site!!

I recently moved to Arizona a couple months ago, and am very happily settling into a new career. I was introduced to stamping over 10 years ago. I've always been into crafts, and picked back up with stamping a couple years ago. I love that I finally have the time to dedicate to my crafts, and that I'm able to share my ideas with everyone. I've seen myself grow in my creativity over the past couple years, and to those who say that they are not creative - don't believe it. Anyone can do this, and creativity doesn't happen overnight, it evolves as you learn more and more about the art of stamping. My husband is incredibly supportive as I put more time into my stamp designs and my scrapbooking.
