Designer Challenge Day 5 31-2018

It's the last day of our challenge!  It's another day to choose one of Theresa's picks for us.

Here is Sue's card:

I chose the black tag. I started with some printed paper – looks like a dictionary page with a fancy border. I added color using Clearly Besotted’s Flower Arrangement and Hero Arts Tide Pool, Pale Tomato, Butter Bar, Soft Granite). The sentiment is from Paper Smooches’ Chit Chat stamp set. I added some jute twine for a “natural” look. I popped the tag up with some fun foam for added dimension on a natural card base. ~ Sue

The black tag really stands out, Sue!  Beautiful cards this week!!!

Here is my card:

I chose the off-white napkin with the pretty red flowers.  After peeling the layers apart, I adhered the napkin to a red panel of card stock using Stick-It to make the red more prominent.  I tied a black ribbon to the panel with a simple knot.  The sentiments are from a Catherine Pooler stamp set.  I used tuxedo black Memento Luxe ink.  When I heat set it the red peeked through around the sentiment on the napkin making a halo effect!  Love it!  I added some black enamel heat set dots for accents and used a black card stock base.

We have had a lot of fun bringing you our takes on different items this week.  We hope you feel encouraged to just go pick up one item and look at it in a completely different way and create something beautiful!  Happy card-making!!! ~ Gracie

  1. Great way to end the week. Gracie I love the way the red came out around the sentiment. What a happy accident.
