It’s time for our September Color Fusers Blog hop! This month, we have a special combo, where each designer can use any color we choose with black and white! I LOVE black and white on it’s own, but I also love adding a pop of color as well. One of my favorite colors to use with black and white is Cherry Cobbler, so I decided to go with that!
One of my favorite bundles from the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog is the Color & Contour Bundle. I have used this bundle more than any other since the new catalog came out! The bundle includes both the Color & Contour Photopolymer stamp set, as well as the Scalloped Contour Dies. The dies include dies to cut the flowers in the stamp set, but also includes a nice selection of scalloped edge layering pieces that look great on any project! Take a look at the full bundle below:
To make my card, I used Basic Black cardstock for the base. I added a Basic White middle layer, and Cherry Cobbler top layer. I stamped three flowers onto the right side of the Cherry Cobbler piece in Cherry Cobbler ink, then stamped one in StazOn Black onto a small piece of white. I stamped over the black outline with the fill in stamp in Cherry Cobbler ink, and then cut out the flower on my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, as well as the Basic White scalloped rectangle. I assembled the white layers with the Cherry Cobbler, wrapped a piece of the Black and White Gingham 1/4″ ribbon around it, and tied a bow. I then adhered everything to the base. Next, I added the flower with Stampin’ Dimensionals, stamped the sentiment (from the Biggest Wish Photopolymer Stamp Set), and punched it with the Double Oval Punch. I then adhered the sentiment with dimensionals as well. Finally, I added a few rhinestones, and the card was complete!
Measurements for this card are as follows:
Basic Black cardstock card base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)
Basic White cardstock middle layer: 4 x 5-1/4 inches
Cherry Cobbler cardstock top layer: 3-3/4 x 5 inches
Basic White scalloped layer: 2-1/4 x 3-3/4 inches
Basic White scraps for flower and sentiment piece
