Cut it Up – Black, White, and a POP of Color!

It’s always a fun challenge, to use black, white, and then a pop of color.  The results are always so pretty.  Check out the other projects over at Cut it Up to see what I mean.

Here’s mine.  I made a set of note cards.  I need lots of those since I send notes out every month to my penpals!  When I was shopping over at Newton’s Nook, our sponsor for this challenge, I saw this beautiful set called Beautiful Blossoms, and they really are.  I bet people with mad coloring skills could really do them justice, but I thought they would be perfect for a black and white challenge.  I also picked up the die set that goes along with the stamp set and used it to cut out my flowers.  I followed this tutorial for “triple time stamping” for these cards.  (You really can’t go wrong with triple time stamping.  Every time I have done it, the cards turned out beautiful.)

Here they are individually.I had a lot of fun making these cards and they turned out exactly how I imagined them!  Hope you take up our challenge and create a project that is black and white with a pop of color.  You could be the lucky random winner of a $20 store credit to Newton’s Nook!

    Hi Evelyn, I love your cards!!! I was one of the ladies you recognized on the most recent Cut It Up Challenge. I made the card with the three hummingbirds. I was reaching out to find out more about being a guest designer for a future challenge on the Cut It Up Challenge Blog. I was not sure the best way to contact you? Thank you!!!
