I am pleased to host the challenge this week at Heart 2 Heart. It’s a Black and White Tuxedo theme! I have always loved the simple elegance that a black and white color palette can give to a project and this was no exception. I created an all occasion card using the Hello Lovely Day to Day scrapbooking stamp set for the rose and leaves and the “hello” Thin Cut for my sentiment.
To embellish the Black and White Daisy cardstock card, I embossed the background panel with a vertical stripes embossing folder (now only available on Clearance), Black and White Shimmer Trim and cut the “hello” from black glitter paper.
Please take a look at the other stunning black and white projects created by the Heart 2 Heart Design team. Then join in the fun, create your own artwork and share with us! We really love to see what you all come up with!
Thanks for stopping by today! If you need any of the supplies I used for this project, please shop HERE!
At Bitten by the Bug 2 this week the challenge is to create a project using RED and WHITE. I made this simple card from Flower Market and Art Philosophy(retired) cartridges by Close To My Heart. It was really hard for me to stick to only two colors so I just had to add a splash of green for the flower’s stem.
I used two retired embossing folders which are on clearance from Close To My Heart (Diamonds and Dots) to add more interest and texture to the card and popped up several elements using dimensional foam. The white layer behind the flower is cut from glitter paper.
Please hop on over to Bitten by the Bug 2 to see the beautiful red and white projects created by my design team sisters. Then get busy making your own projects to link up for us all to enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by today! Eat lots of chocolate this week in honor of Valentine’s Day! Laurie
Today I made a very non-traditional Valentine’s Day card. No reds or pinks in sight on this one! Instead I used the Rustic Home paper collection from Close To My Heart and the new Hello Lovely Cardmaking Bundle which includes stamps and coordinating Thin Cuts. This is seriously a gorgeous set of goodness that I can’t wait to play with lots more in the future!!
Isn’t that floral spray amazing? I must say that using this stamp and die set on kraft paper in Chocolate ink was not my original idea. I saw a beautiful card made by another CTMH consultant and that was my inspiration. Check out the entire Hello Lovely Cardmaking Bundle in the photo below.
This card is going in the mail today as a Valentine greeting for my husband. I haven’t seen him in in over a month now since I’ve been spending the winter in Florida helping my son and his family after their second son was born and I miss him!
Here’s wishing you a wonderful, relaxing weekend with plenty of LOVE! Laurie
Here is another Valentine card that I made from a free cut recently available on Cricut Design Space. I always enjoy trying out some of their projects and this was a fun one to make! If you want to make a fancy, swirly Valentine card for someone, this is just for you. You could even add a little glitter to make it even more “blingy”LOL!
