Creative Sketches Week 2- Color Challenge

This week at we were working on a color Challenge with Black, White, and Brushed Silver.  I love the a la carte stamps Stampin Up! carries in the back of each Mini catalog and in the Main one, so I wanted to highlight one of the newest ones, Be My Valentine # 122045

I chose Basic Black Cardstock and ran it through my polka dots embossing folder.  Then I took my Brushed Silver cardstock and scalloped each edge with my scallop border punch.  I inked up my stamp twice, and stamped on my whisper white cardstock with Basic Black ink, and then on scrap with Real red ink for a very subtle pop of color.  I trimmed out my Valentine Sash, and mounted it on my card with dimensionals.  Before I attached the silver and white pieces, I carefully added a Basic Black taffeta ribbon around the edge of my card and adhered my bow with a mini glue dot.  I love that stuff.  You can't really see it in the picture, but I also added two rhinestones to the smaller flowers on the top half of the heart.  I do love a little bling! I think the overall look is very elegant, but somewhat masculine because of the color palette.

What can you make with just Black, White, and Silver?  Pop over to and post your link!  Can't wait to see what you make!
