I recently entered a couple of challenges. The first was to use only kraft, black and white colors, and the other was to make a card having to do with kindness. I am about to share my cards. :-)
First up we have Kindness cards:
I love the bright colors. The letters are die cut and glitter applied. The colorful background peeking out from behind the die cut front was made with Distress Oxide Inks.
I used an embossing folder and smooshed blue/gray ink on the debossed part. Then I applied Versamark to the raised parts and heat embossed with white ink. I stamped the sentiment and die cut it then used die cut blue birds for a pop of color.
I love this die cut front, can you tell? I think it's a Tim Holtz die by Sizzix. There are 4 dies that cut out parts of the page. This is my favorite. This card I entered in both challenges.
Another card that fit both challenges. The flower and sentiment are from the Daisy Delight Stampin' Up stamp set. The patterned paper is Gina K. Designs.
Another card in kraft, black and white. The stamp set is a retired Stampin' Up set, but one of my favorites..
And my final card done in kraft, black and white. I used the Nuvo Crystal Dew drops to make little "water droplets" on the card front.
Hope you have enjoyed my cards.
