Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Black, White And One Other Colour

Hello everyone, today it's my turn to create my Design Team card for Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog. The theme this week is Black, White And One Other Colour and  remember your card/project must have a stamped element on it. We hold a weekly challenge with a fantastic prize plus a monthly prize draw for everyone who enters a card/project throughout the month. 

My DT card this week is not really my usual style but I'm really pleased how it turned out.  As I mentioned the theme is Black, White and one other colour and I decided to add a hint of red. I only added a little red because I didn't want it to overpower it.  I'm so pleased with how the baubles turned out, considering the stamps were a craft magazine freebie (costing me £4.99). The stamps are from Spellbinders, there's loads in the free set plus they're a good size with caps and sentiments included and the stamping quality is amazing 
So I stamped and embossed them in Black Tinsel embossing powder and added a little red pencil to highlight certain areas.  The background was done using an embossing folder and the white/red frill was cut using a border die. To finish it off I added bakers twine and gems.  So now it's all done and  I've taken my photo this card is winging it's way to Amsterdam to my cousin for Christmas.

Here's what I used:
Stamps: Spellbinders 'Heirloom Ornaments' freebie stamp set from Simple Cards & Papercrafts
Cardstock: Black, Red, White
Dies: Spellbinders Border Die
Embossing Folder: Papermania 'Snowflakes'
Other: Prisma Pencils, Black Tinsel Embossing Powder, Bakers Twine, Gems

So why not drop by Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog and check out what my fabulous Design Teamies have created to inspire you, and while you're there why not enter your card or project into the challenge. This week's sponsor and prize is from My Mum's Craft Shop and the monthly draw sponsor is The Ribbon Girl.

I look forward to seeing what you create.
