Color Throwdown 504

Happy Sunday one and all!  I'm sorry I have been quiet lately.  I have been busy working on some quilting projects.  If I ever get around to taking some nice pictures, I will share them here.

Today I really, really wanted to make a card.  I have purchased a lot of great products lately and I NEED to use them.  I happened to get an email reminder today that the Color Throwdown challenge #ctd 504 would be ending tomorrow.  I checked out the colors and decided to go with it.  I took a look around my very messy desk and grabbed a few items that I had out.

Here is this weeks inspiration:

You can find all the details on how to participate and link up HERE.  The middle color is copper and I knew I had a gorgeous copper embossing powder from Hero Arts in my stash.

Oh that splendid copper!!  Swoon!!  I stamped the Love of Coffee background stamp from Picket Fence Studios on to a piece of Neenah Solar white with the Ink on 3 embossing ink pad.  I sprinkled the embossing powder liberally over the entire card front.  I let my heat gun warm up and watched the magic happen.  Gets me every time.  I set it aside.

Next I grabbed a scrap piece of black cardstock and stamped the Candy Stripe background stamp from Hero Arts and used the same copper embossing powder.  I stamped the coffee cup from the Coffee with a Splash set from Altenew using black Versafine ink.  I sprinked it with clear embossing powder and hit it with the heat tool.

I cut the coffee cup out with a circle die from MFT Stamps.  I used the Ink on 3 embossing powder and gently swiped it all around the circle edges.  Copper embossing powder and melt.  I layered all of the pieces onto the black card base.  The circle was adhered with foam tape.  For the last bit of detail I added dots of black Pico Embellisher.  All done.  I am quite pleased with the final product!

Hopefully I'll be back soon with more cards to share!
