Color Throwdown and FMS Challenge Cards

Hi, I’m back with another post for today…this time I’m adding a card for the Color Throwdown Challenge #435. This week’s colors are: Turquoise, Yellow, and Orange.

CASE CTDI used a combination of patterned paper and stamped images in the challenge colors. I cut 1-inch by 1-inch squares and arranged them in a grid. This is not my design but one I CASED from Splitcoaststamper mschatzma.  Here is her card that I cased:


The Free-For-All Challenge at Splitcoaststampers this week was to CASE a card that we had saved in our favorites folder. I had mschatzma’s card saved for quite a while. The grid patterns and detail on the individual squares caught my eye. My card is similar in theme and style but mine is not quite as tidy…I didn’t have a grid die and hand cut the tiles so my little squares are a bit off kilter.

Products used: (cardstock) MFT Smooth White, Kraft, Graphic 45 6×6: Voyage Beneath the Sea; (stamps) Avery Elle (The Reef); Versamark, Embossing Powder, Twine, Starfish Charm

I almost forgot I also have a card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #280.  I’ve got Spring fever (again) so I went with a springy theme for this one.

Rainy SpringI paper pieced the umbrella with a cute plaid from Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid 6×6 pad.

Products used: (cardstock) MFT Smooth White, PTI Spring Rain, Blueberry, Lawn Fawn 6×6: Perfectly Plaid; (stamps) Penny Black (April Showers); MFT Hybrid Ink: Black Licorice, Foam Tape, Wink of Stella
