Graphic Black and White Card-Just a Note

Hi Everyone!

I have a card today that features a clean and simple, graphic style.  I am entering it in two challenges. The first is Cards in Envy where the challenge was to use only black and white on your project (a small amount of color is ok).  The second challenge is CAS on a Sunday, where the theme was just using a sentiment on your card.  I have a new stamp from Mama Elephant I had been wanting to use, so I thought this would be the perfect project.

 

I first masked an inked rectangle onto a white notecard using Merman ink from Lawn Fawn--The names of their inks are so great!  On top of that, I adhered a die cut rectangle from Nestabilities Wonky Rectangles cut from My Favorite Things 6x6 pad--Dots and Stripes-Neutral.  On top of that, I added another rectangle with my sentiment heat embossed with white powder.  Some white enamel dots added a little interest--you could also try white paint splotches--I'm not brave enough yet :).  Clean and simple--my favorite!

Blog just a note

Later in the week, I will feature another card featuring black and white as the main component.  This look really packs a punch and would be great to make in multiples.

Thanks so much for joining me today!

Papertrey March Blog Hop Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Today, I have a card for the Papertrey Ink March Blog Hop Challenge.  The inspiration photo had so many rich colors and floral images--this was a fun one!

I used a card base made from Dark Indigo cardstock and adhered a white circle from the Shaker Shapes Circle die to the middle.  This was stamped with a sentiment from Signature Greetings.  I layered various flowers from Bitty Bouquets and Bloomin' Cute around the sentiment.    

I placed a circle frame from the Shaker Shapes Circle Die cut from Soft Stone cardstock over the top of the white circle.  This was adhered with foam to give it a raised look.  The edge of the circle is lined with more die cuts from Bloomin' Cute.  I tried to stay with the color scheme of the floral photo.

 

A QUICK TIMESAVER:

To make things go faster with all the die cutting, I stamped all my images and  put as many dies on one sheet of cardstock as I could.

I use an extended cutting pad for my Sizzix machine so I have more surface area to run everything through at once.

Retro Thanks

Hi Everyone!

I'm really excited to share a card I have for the NBUS challenge #10.  I love the idea of getting out your "Never-Before- Used -Schtuff" and actually USING it :).   For this challenge, I decided to break out my never been used Mod Fun Shapes stamp set from Inkadinkado and get to work.  Darnell had suggested using a bubble theme, so I thought the circles stamp would fit nicely.

Glamorous Gold!

Hi Everyone,

Today I have a card for the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge.  The challenge was to incorporate gold into our card.  I love gold and aqua together so I went all out with my gold!

   

 

  Casual fridays 1

 First, I embossed the gold flowers from the Wonderful Words stamp set onto an aqua card panel.  Then, I embossed the sentiment onto a vellum strip  backed with white card stock and adhered it to the panel with foam tape.  A gold bow and hearts completed the panel and everything was added to a white notecard.  Just a note on the gold embossing powder-I have a hard time finding one that works for me.  They're either too "bronze" looking or too metallic for my taste.  I really like this one from WOW though.  It's called "Gold Pearl" and it has a softer gold finish.  So if you have a hard time with your gold, this might be one to check out.
