Color Throwdown #56

DSCF4991

Broni is our hostess today and she has chosen some fresh new Stampin'Up! colors for our challenge:

CTD 56 swatch

Our sponsor this week is Rubbernecker Stamps!  Be sure to check the Color Throwdown blog to get all the details about this wonderful company and what they're giving away this week!  EVERYBODY needs to check this out!!!  Remember, you don't need these exact colors to play, in fact, Broni has given some substitutions on the CTD blog, so check it out.  Post your creation on your own blog or an online gallery, and use CTD56 as the keyword.  Then come back to the CTD blog and link your post, (not just the blog address) to Mr Linky so we all can see your creations!!  You may be just lucky enough to be chosen the Featured Stamper, and then be in the running for a Guest Stamper spot!  So lets get on to the card!

When I saw this new Coffee & Tea Inchies set, I knew I would LOVE it.  In fact, I think I will just keep this card for myself and not give it to anybody!!! LOL!!!  'Cuz I LOVE COFFEE!!!  What do you think:

I love these colors together, too; the new SU Thoroughly Modern DP works perfectly with this color combo.  I did a variety of paper piecing after stamping each image with Soft Suede.  I used the dots from IBBG for one Dusty Durango coffee cup; the DD coffee pot, I freehanded the zig zag lines with a marker.  The "i" was also drawn with a marker; the heart is from the 3-heart punch by SU.  Nesties and circle punches made the layers, and the polka-dot Dusty Durango ribbon finished it off.  You can barely see it, but I also stamped "coffee" in Fresh Snow (PTI) on the dotted DP.  Mmmmm, I can smell my java brewing now. 

So lets see what the others made with this warm fall color combo:

 The little details:

  • Stamps: Coffee & Tea Inchies, Rubbernecker
  • Paper:  Confetti White, Dusty Durango, Bermuda Bay, Thoroughly Modern DP
  • Ink:  Soft Suede, Dusty Durango, Fresh Snow (PTI)
  • Acc:  Nesties, Circle Punches, Polka-Dot Ribbon, 3-Heart Punch, Dimensionals

LOVE IT! This is a great card. I can almost smell the coffee. I can see where you stamped it on the background. It looks great. I am a tea girl but I love the smell of coffee. Nice that there is tea in the set too.
