It's All About Red, Black, and White-Stampin B's






I'm up early this morning to upload my card for the Stampin B's Blog Challenge and it is very cool. I put on a pair of socks when I went out yesterday for the first time since last winter. Oh, I hate cold weather. I'm the type person to freeze in the summer with the air conditioner on and everyone else is blazing hot.
I guess that is why I made this RED HOT card today. Joanne aka jojot on SCS
asked that we make a red, black, and white card today. That is her all favorite color combo. I love them, too..mine turned out mostly red even though I didn't intend for that to happen. You know how it is when you start making a card, you may end up with something entirely different than you had in mind.
We would love for you to join us at the Stampin B's Blog Challenge with your red, black, and white card or project.

Recipe:
Stamp: Paper Inspirations-Leafy Stems
Paper: PTI white cs, SU Real Red cardstock, black cs from Hobby Lobby, no name dp
VersaMark and Zing black embossing powder
QuicKutz embossing folder-Label
White satin ribbon

Now...of course I already love this color combo, but what YOU did with it is so bold, dramatic and gorgeous. Love the use of the Big Note....and it looks fab in the red....great black and white dp in the bkgd to set the whole thing off.....so gorgeous

Oh Brenda this is gorgeous! I love the black embossed on red and the pretty black and white background paper with the red on top! Great color combo challenge this week ~ looks like I was actually a little psychic since I used that exact combo on my StampinB's challenge card for last week.

Oh I love it Benzi - that black flower really pops against the red.
Hope your feet got warmed up ... I'm afraid we've been in our socks for ages and I bought a pair of winter boots the other day!
