Color Throwdown #52 - Clear & Simple Stamps


It's time for another exciting Color Throwdown, as this week we have another great company sponsoring our challenge... Clear & Simple Stamps! Please be sure to stop by the Throwdown blog to read about this wonderful company and to see the generous prize they're donating for one lucky random participant this week!
The challenge this week is being hosted by Barbara, and she chose Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip and Perfect Plum for you us to Throwdown! So why not see what you can do with these colors, and try to win the prize or be chosen as our Featured Stamper? Remember, the colors are only meant as a guide! If you don't have these exact colors, just use whatever you have that is similar! Link your creation back on the Throwdown blog using Mr. Linky and make sure you're using a direct link! Links that take us only to your blog, and not directly to your entry will be deleted and ineligible for prizes!

The ladies at Clear & Simple Stamps also generously donated a stamp set to each member of the Throwdown team to use for this challenge, and the set I received is called Glam Girl! The sentiment included with this set (shown here) just kept calling out to me, so I had no choice but to create my own mirror on the card for a princess to gaze into, hoping to see Prince Charming staring back! The stars are also part of the set and I stamped them using Versamark Dazzle for some extra bling along with the added gemstones. If I'd had some smaller gemstones, I would have encircled the mirror with them!

Stop by the Throwdown girls' blogs to see what they've created with their Clear & Simple Stamps, too!


I try not to upload too many times in one day, (I know some people don't like receiving multiple emails with blog posts) but I do have a few other things I need to show you today, so please stick with me and stay tuned! Thanks!
