Pink and Black

I saw this alphabet set at Studio Calico the other week and really liked it. It is suitable for scrapbooking, but I thought it would look nice on cards. I received it on Tuesday and couldn't just let it sit there. So I got to work creating this 4.25 square card. I embossed the letters on black paper using pink embossing powder. I cut those out, then added the word chickadee using a Studio G rubber stamp alphabet. I added the scalloped black paper, the polka dot ribbon, and the black mat, but it felt a tad unbalanced. So I stamped this sweet little bird, embossed it, cut it out and popped it up.

Stamps: Noah (Studio Calico), Studio G alphabet, Sheltering Tree (gel-a-tins)
Ink: Versamark, True Black
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette, Black
Accessories, etc.: Pink of Me gelly powder, pop dots, scallop punch, polka dot organdy


  1. wow, i'm so impressed by your card! i'm going to have to try embossing with those stamps, too (if only all my embossing supplies weren't packed up at the moment....)

  2. I love this colour combo it works so well. It's really lovely :o)
