Clean and Simple at Tuesday Throwdown

This week's challenge at Tuesday Throwdown is sponsored by
http://lacysunshine.weebly.com/ and our theme is Clean & Simple.

I've used an image from our sponsor for my card:

I really intended to use white glitter on the snow, but when I sprinkled it on, I realized it was white embossing powder!  Oh well, I liked how it turned out, so it was a happy accident!  I used a scrap piece of blue glitter cardstock for the snowflake, which is a Cricut cut.

I hope you will come on over and join us!

Shaped Gift Card - New Baby

This week at Tuesday Throwdown our challenge theme is "Bundle of Joy" and we are sponsored by the ever awesome

I've used our sponsor's sweet Mama and Baby Elephant image to make a gift card.

I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Colored Pencils in gray and pink.  The card shape is a Cricut card base from "Sentimentals" cartridge, available in Design Space.  This card measures 3"x 3 1'4".  By duplicating one side of the card base and sizing it just a bit smaller, I cut the patterned paper, which is a scrap from my stash.  Since the card is so small, I thought a tiny bow was all the embellishment it needed.

Thanks for stopping by and I sure hope to see you join us at Tuesday Throwdown!

The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers and the background paper is from K & Co.

Embossed Copper

Hello!  Last time it was Team A's turn to post on Tuesday Throwdown, I was so covered up with life that I had to skip.  So it seems like it's been months since I've posted!

This week our sponsor is
 http://digitaldelightsbyloubyloo.com/ and our challenge theme is "Add Metal".

So here's my take with our sponsor's image "Steampunk Tasha":

I've had a roll of thin copper sheeting for something like forever and finally thought this would be a fun way to use some of it.  The diecuts were all in my spare parts box (sweet!).  The black doilie is a Spellbinder's die, the white piece on it is the negative cut from a Cricut "ready to make" card and the green label is a Cricut label cut in half.  My image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers then fussy cut and the paper is a piece from a Paper Studio sheet.  The "hello" stamp is from Winnie & Walter's "The Big, the Bold and the Happy" set. 

This was really a fun card to make and I hope you like it!  Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out all the other great projects over at Tuesday Throwdown!

Black and White + One

Oh my gosh!  It just dawned on me today that I never got my post up for the past Tuesday Throwdown Challenge!  Now that it's almost over, here's my card!

Our theme is "Black and White with one other color" and our sponsor is MHK Designs.  I used digi paper, rocker image and sentiment all provided by our sponsor.   

Bg apology to my teammates at Tuesday Throwdown for being so neglectful!

One Layer Cards are Kinda Hard?

This week's challenge at Tuesday Throwdown is "One Layer" and we are sponsored by  

I had a much harder time with this challenge than I thought I would.  "One Layer" sounds so easy!  But once I printed out my image, I thought "Now what???"  I wanted to use ribbon or diecuts or something! 

So I used a Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page border punch and a little glitter and called it good.  So I guess it really is easy, after all!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great week and join us!
