LIM 218 - Mostly Black

It's been a few weeks since I've played along with the challenge at Less is More, and this week's challenge seemed to spark my mojo!  I've gone overboard again, and made 5 cards for this challenge! Here's my cards for this week's challenge:

This first card is on a black card base, with a tiny white border on the embossed card panel.  I heat embossed the poppy stamp from SU with a detail white embossing powder.  I heat embossed the sentiment from Hero Arts on a strip of vellum and adhered it over the black panel, then adhered the black panel to the white background before popping it up on the black card base.

When I started this card, I had NO idea how it would end up.  This is actually a top folding card, although it looks like a side folding card.  The recipient will probably really be confused when trying to open it! LOL!  I stamped the PTI sentiment on the center of the white panel.  The flowers are from Sweet and Sassy, and were stamped in black ink then cut out with a matching die.  I added some black gloss to the center of each of the blooms.  I also popped up the two middle sized blooms, rounded the right corners and adhered the panel to a black card base.

This card was SO super quick and easy!  I printed out the silhouette children and the sentiment...cut it out, adhered it to a black panel, then popped it on a white card base....SUPER quick and easy!

This card and the next card are both cards that I did a little Zentangle inspired art on.  When I think black and white, I often think of added a few of my doodles.  The sentiment on the above card is from PTI, stamped in black.  I cut the panel using a stitched edge rectangle from Simon Says.  I popped the white layer on a black card base.

This card is also some of my ZIA...I used the same die for cutting the white panel and the sentiment is also from PTI.

Whew! That was a lot to drop on you today! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by for a visit!  Hope you'll come back soon!  Your comments are greatly appreciated! Until next time...

Pin It!
