This design was also made for a challenge over at StampTV. The challenge was simple - black and white only! I chose to use an SU! printed window sheet overlay for the main image, on the black. For the sentiment, I used my Basic Black Stampin' Write to ink up just the outline of a stamp from the SU! set "Four Frames", then stamped a sentiment from GinaK's "You Are Not Alone". A little SU! 1/4" White Grosgrain Ribbon adds the finishing touch. ENJOY!

I made this card for a challenge over at GinaK Designs StampTV. The challenge was to use 1 layer, 1 color and 1 embellishment. You could also accent with glitter, etc. I accented with the Spica Glitter Pen in Pink, around the edge of the flower, as well as in the middle of the flower. I used SU! Whisper White and Melon Mambo, as well as the retired Melon Mambo Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon. Images come from two stamp sets by Melanie Muenchinger for GinaK Designs.
I love the colors on this card, as they are bright and cheerful and remind me of several of my friends! I used Stampin' Up!'s Pear Pizzazz for the base layer, as well as to highlight the Finial Press embossing folder. Nestabilities scalloped circle made my focal image pop, along with some sponging around the edges with SU! Pumpkin Pie ink. The Elzy Bells image is colored with Copic Markers. The sentiment uses all SU!: Modern Label Punch and the stamp set "Teeny Tiny Wishes", and a flower brad - all popped up on Dimensionals. ENJOY!

These are thank you cards I made for a friend's son, for his Confirmation. I used Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler, the Big Shot and the reverse cut out of the Top Note die, a retired set called "Refuge & Strength". The first dove image is also from a retired set called "Peace Be Unto You" - I had four of these images already stamped, and on hand. This is the image I originally wanted to use, however, the friend I had previously borrowed the stamp set from, no longer had it. So, on to Plan B!
Instead, I used the Dove from the Big Shot Holiday Windows Movers & Shapers die! A different look, but still a good look.
And for his confirmation card, I used the Top Note cut out and the reverse cut out from the Holiday windows Mover & Shapers Dove die! I love the effect of using the reverse cut outs from the Big Shot dies.
Also used were the Word Window and Designer Label punches.
