Black and Cream

Finally, I've created something different from my usual! I have been wanting to do a cream and black card since seeing the blk and cream pp in the occasions mini. I love the new pp, but just don't need that many pieces. If I could only get 1 or 2 of them. I got the Bliss stamp set free from the SAB promotion. I didn't like it at first, but then thought of going outside my comfort zone. I had some ideas in my head and then looked at the occasions mini and realized my idea's were similar. I love this new background folder from SU called Vintage Wallpaper. I don't have a Big Shot, but it worked well in the Cuttlebug. These folders make deep impressions. I also used my new scallop oval punch and did some layering. The big Bliss image is stamped on the cream and I used the oval punch to cut it out. My fab friend Mel gave me some of her SU black lace. Very nice lace! Now, I'll go overboard making cream and blk cards. lol

Thanks for stopping by for a look see!

Birthday Bakery Store Front

I saw a card like this on SCS in the Birthday Bakery section by debzi333 and had to give it a try! It was really easy to look at her card and copy. Something totally different and easy is my level of crafting! This stamp is really getting used the last couple days.

I stamped the image with blk craft ink directly onto the Whisper White. Used the window punch for the awning and bottom window ledge. I think I might make another one of these today. Still need more Bday cards.

Birthday Bakery Cards

I have 4 Bday's coming up and also Vday is soon around the corner. I cased the red and blue card from Mamamostamps on SCS. Loved the red and blue glittery paper from Candy Cane Christmas paper and thought what a good idea to use for Bday's. This was the best pp SU has ever come out with!
I have a hard time with masculine cards, but found in all my pp pieces some more masculine coloured pp and used a similar design to the red and blue card. The image is from the SU Hostess Set - Birthday Bakery. I coloured with matching copics to the papers, added silver for the trays and stickles for some shine to the white. Nothing fancy, but a nice easy card to do!
Thanks for a having a looky loo!
