Diva Coffee Break Challenge

Hi there Stampers! Thanks for stopping by!
As I was blog surfing yesterday I came across the Diva Coffee Break Challenge for the week and of course had to play along! I had such fun using such simple colors that I had to make two cards!

When I saw the colors were white, black and gray I knew I wanted to ink up my much neglected Pocket Silhouettes stamp set!

I started with my typical WW base, added a panel of Walk in the Park DSP from the Occasions Mini Catalog and tied some organza ribbon from Michael's. I stamped my images in Basic Black on Whisper White (WW)and matted them on Scallop Squares of Basic Black. I popped them up on dimensionals and then added my butterfly from the Great Friend stamp set (I cannot get enough of this one!).

My second card starts with a WW base with a panel of Rockabilly DSP.
I added a strip of WW and some ribbon and stamped the happy birthday circles from the Wow Flowers stamp set in Basic Black and Going Gray. I punched them out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch and matted them on Basic Black Scallop Circles with Dimensionals. The final touch is the silver metal stickers (Colorbok). Kind of funky but I like it. :)

Ingredients #1:
Stamps: Great Friend, Pocket Silhouettes Paper: Walk in the Park, WW Ink: Basic Black, Going Gray Accessories: Dimensionals, 1 1/4" Square Punch, Scallop Square Punch, Organza Ribbon

Ingredients #2:
Stamps: Wow Flowers Paper: Rockabilly DSP, WW, Basic Black Ink: Basic Black, Going Gray Accessories: 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Silver Metal Stickers from Colorbok, Striped Ribbon, Dimensionals

Hope you enjoyed my cards and give this challenge a try!
