Black, white and one other colour

I'm really late for this month's challenge over at St Luke's Charity so have made two cards to compensate!!!  They are both in the same colourway of black, white and Dusty Concord Distress Ink.  For the first I have used my Marianne Designables DS0912 cutting and embossing folder which I just fell in love with when I first saw it.  This has been mounted onto black card and then onto a 5" x 7" white pearlised card.  The flower and sentiment is an Anita's stamp which was actually too long for the space so I covered the flower and inked the sentiment, stamped it and then covered the sentiment, inked the flower and placed that above.  The butterflies are a new Stampin Up Embosslits folder using pearl card and colouring with the Distress Ink.

The second card was inspired by Aileen and I just couldn't resist doing a similar card using my Stampin Up Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder and Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die.  This has been mounted onto some purple pearlised card and then onto black and I'm not sure you can see from the photograph but I've coloured a peel-off sentiment to add to the black margin at the right side and then placed some gems.

Thanks for visiting my blog.


  1. Better late than never and I love the colour combo on these two cards. That Marianne die looks very tempting - not seen any of those but might have to look around!!

  2. Absolutely beautiful!
