Happy first day of April!! And, that means a new monthly challenge on the Stampsmith Challenge blog. Thanks to everyone that left challenge ideas in the comment section of the Challenge blog! Barbara W and Stamper Sue both suggested Black/White with a splash of color. So, guess what!! That is the theme that has been selected for the month of April!
Black and White with a splash of Color
With a least one Stampsmith Stamp
I went to work and came up with my Design Team creation using a stamp from the "It's a Dog's Life" Full Sheet. Of course I used black and white ---- with a splash of RED. I made this card a Flap Fold design.
Here you can see how the flap extends out over the front. The Sentiment is from the "Say It Like It Is" Full Sheet.
- Flap Fold Card Base: Cut a base 4 1/4" x 9 1/2" from CS
- Score at 4"
- Make the center piece large enough to overlap the front. I made my center piece the size of the image plus four layers. 3 1/2" x 5"
This is what the layout looks like from the inside:
Flap(black) Score Inside
Another look at the overhang.
- Stamp the puppy and kittens with black dye ink on glossy white CS.
- Layer with red and black CS
- The black/white DP is from My Mind's Eye
- Stamp sentiment with black dye ink on smooth white CS.
- Add a red satin bow
I have plenty of room on the inside to stamp another sentiment or write a note. Very fun!! Get out you Stampsmith stamps and make your own black/white with a splash of color project!! I can't wait to see what you come up with!! Link up over on the Stampsmith Challenge Blog.
And, a few other super fun Challenges!!
