Color Throwdown 301

Good morning, Friends! I hope you have a had a great week! I feel like it went by pretty fast! I am looking forward to a nice weekend. It will be hot outside but I plan to do some indoor work like stamping and sewing!! I have a massage today and I am hoping that she will help the sore muscles in my injured arm. Nick can sleep in. He is pretty tired and sore from his week at soccer camp. I'm glad! It's getting him good and ready for high school (did I just say that???)! 

Today's card was inspired by the colors at Color Throwdown. I was trying something different. And different is what it is!

  • Card base is Crumb Cake
  • Stamp the splatter images from Gorgeous Grunge onto he card base using Smoky Slate, Soft Sky and Calypso Coral (I stamped off before stamping the Calypso Coral onto the card)
  • Use the Hexagon Hive thinlit to cut the the little hexagons from Crumb Cake
  • Sponged the edges of each hexagon shape using Crumb Cake ink then adhere to card base (don't adhere the one with the flower yet)
  • Stamp the greeting from Honeycomb Hello onto a strip of Whisper White using Smoky Slate and flag the end then adhere to the back of the hexagon shape
  • Adhere hexagon shape to card with dimensionals
  • Punch a flower from Soft Sky using the itty bitty accents punch pack and adhere to card
  • Add a Calypso Coral candy dot to flower center
Here are the Color Throwdown colors for you to see. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

  1. What a pretty card Deb. Love the honeycomb background and the tiny little flower. Great use of the colors. Thank you for playing along with us at The Color Throwdown this week.

  2. This is really different, Deb, but wow, is it fabulous! I'd never have thought of doing something like this. I adore the tiny pieces of white and colour, it just pops right out at you! Perfect!

  3. Lovely CAS design with the dimensional hexagons! Thanks so much for joining us at Color Throwdown!

  4. So pretty! Love the little pop of color from the flower against the kraft background and hexagons.
