New on the Scene

Stampin up scene in a garden
Today's post is inspired by this week's Splitcoast Stampers Limited Supplies Challenge (LSC213), to use exclusively black and white.  I began with a vase of pretty stems (and a sneak peek) from Scene in a Garden (Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini, available April 1).  It's inked in Jet Black Stazon.  TIP:  I prefer the crisp look of Black Stazon over Basic Black, especially when stamped on Whisper White. 

I used a Basic Black Stampin' Up! Marker to dot a little border. The image was adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals to Basic Black and Whisper White card stock.  The background snaps to life with the Tr?s Chic background stamp and is layered over Basic Black and a Whisper White 4.25 x 5.5 card base (scored on the side).

Since I adore Stampin' Up!'s textured card stock, I thought Basic Black would be the perfect treatment for the horizontal panel and scallop edge.  The "wonderful you" sentiment is from the Wonderful You stamp set, not shown in the Stampin' Up! Spring/Summer Idea Book and Catalog. However, you can still order this versatile set.  I have included the images for you below.  Click here to see all the Stampin' Up! dormant but available stamps!

I popped the sentiment out with a Small Oval Punch and adhered it with a Stampin' Dimensional. A Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware Label Holder adds a jazzy polish.  The final touch was a clip and snippet of Black Gingham Ribbon.

  1. Very chic! Love the use of simple black with what I think of a typical watercolor set. A great fall to layout, also!

  2. It sounds like we all love black and white cards. They are just so classic and timeless. And of course yours is so nicely done. I do believe I need to get the Tres Chic stamp.

  3. Oh la la, what a classy card. Black and white is always a winner. Another Stampin Pretty card. Thanks for all your wonderful ideas.

  4. Love it, Mary! I agree 100% with Tiffany…I love the black & white and the background stamp you used. All of it looks great together!

  5. I love black & white Mary! Great job with the background. I always have problems with those big stamps. Very stylish with the hardware! Love it!!!

  6. Gorgeous……..love black and white only cards! I really need to get busy with my new sets!! Thanks for the inspiration!
