Simple Elegance

Simple elegant describes this one today. It was a card that took me 15 minutes to create. It doesn’t get much better. This one would make a great workshop card and give you another reason to buy the Big Shot. That handy tool makes creating so easy and fun! My inspiration was found spending time with my friend, Katya from Belarus working on her wedding album. We used this down the side of several pages yesterday.

The blog tour is in just a couple of days. There will be so many great projects and ideas floating around. I’ve got my sketch book ready and can hardly wait! How about you?

The challenge this week at Late Night Stampers was to create a card using Black and Pink. One more task completed and marked off my list. I’m finally catching up a bit. Well here’s my share…

Challenge 29

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes

  1. Wow Dacia! This is so pretty. I just love pink and black together and I would have never thought to use the swirls this way. I love it:)

    Happy Friday!

  2. I love your card, and was wondering …I have a cuttlebug that I use and will the swirly die go through it?…and also was wondering if you apply adhesive to the back of your pink card stock before running through the big shot, would it not stick to ur machine?…or what kind of adhesive are you using? tyvm, Jan

    • You just pushed me over the edge. Now I must have this die. I am also wondering the same as Jan if you “Apply adhesive to back of pink, layer, and run through the Big Shot.” how do you then “Remove the black and pink from the right side. Remove the pink from the left side.” So curious.
      Great blog. Right into my favorites.
