Color Throwdown #265
It’s time for another Color Throwdown challenge, and I’ve got one more card to share with you today using the new Multi-Step Bicycle stamp set from Kitchen Sink Stamps!
These new stamps were just released on Monday, along with 4 other fabulous sets, so I hope you made time to go shopping. At this point, you’ve missed out on the 15% off savings, but you can still always save 10% on your order when you use the code KSS10Tammy at check out! (Or click the link in my sidebar.)
Joan is our hostess today with this interesting color combo. I was a little iffy on it at first, thinking “what am I going to do?” as I do many weeks lately, but found some papers that worked well, and I was off and running!
And here’s my card, using the Multi-Step Bicycle set, and some Authentique papers. And for this card, I used the awesome now-available cut file for the bicycle, the basket and the flowers! I am SO excited that Maria is now designing cut files to go with the stamps… it adds a whole new design element to my creations, and actually makes the mult-step stamping process easier, too! Check out Maria’s blog post here where she explains how she does it… I tried this and it makes such a difference! (And… even Maria will admit that her explanation can be confusing, so if it is just drop me a line and I’ll try to explain better!)
Since Cantaloupe is a shade of orange, I’m entering this one in Linda’s “Orange is the New Black” Recipe Swap challenge for this week, too!
Do you love the sentiment on the front? Those “Keep Calm” statements are so popular lately… I love that Maria included it in this set! On the inside is another great sentiment from the set… one that I suggested be included. I also added a “silhouette” of the bike using the step #2 stamp, and some Memento Toffee Crunch ink.
I’ll upload my card to my Kitchen Sink Stamps gallery,
and list my color recipes there for you!
