Color Throwdown #60

I've had this card finished for a couple days, but I've been busy with several other projects, and haven't had time to sit down and post this. The challenge for the Color Throwdown #60 were:I was so excited when I saw these colors - what a fabulous combination. I'll start with my creation:Admittedly, I went really crazy with the layering of cardstock. I seem to be starting out with one version of a card, and ending up with something totally different lately. I started out with a base card of full of colored polka dots - boy what a change of card. I used the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set to create the flowers, and then used the Sizzix Buttons #5 to cut out the buttons in the center on my Big Shot. The scallop punch was used, and I used the crop-a-dile to cut out small circles in the scallops. I added a little bit of ribbon weaving on this card, and also some zig zag stitching on my sewing machine. A little too many layers?? Maybe, but I like it anyways!!


  1. Very cool---I love your buttons and the weaving! Thanks for making such a neat card with the challenge colors!

  2. Just lovely! Thanks for playing the Throwdown!

  3. Love those cut out flowers!! Thanks for joining us in this week's Color Throwdown challenge!


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.
