Anyhoo... I have two cards to share today. I actually got the idea for this fun background from one of the Stampin' Up! 2013 Artisan Design Team members, Connie Collins - I just love all her designs. She had a post about the Little Black Dress of Designer Series Paper, using the Back to Black DSP. I loved the idea, just wish I'd though of it! What a great way to customize any project and the papers have such fun and bold patterns.
I cut a piece, I used the same pattern since it was easy to colour - I used the Night of Navy assortment to colour the white spaces in an ombre effect. I stamped the thanks 3 times in Night of Navy and punched out and matted onto the Label Bracket Punch - I also used a piece of 1/4" Cotton ribbon, coloured with the Blendabilities for perfect coordination........ love, love the blendabilities - they are so much more than markers for colouring!
Here are both cards, side by side looking all handsome in their new clothes! I hope you like my shares, and thanks Connie for the fabulous inspiration :)
