White, Black and Red

I was feeling rather crafty this weekend so I decided to participate in a challenge (or 2 or 3). Wish Big @ My Craft Spot Make a Birthday something. I think I need some new birthday stamps, I'm getting kinda tired of using the same one all the time! :)  Color Challenge @ CardzTV Use Red, White and Black only. And 1,2,3 @ My Creative Time This one was fun. Use 1 bow, 2 patterned papers and 3 buttons. I think this is the first project I've done in a long time not using my Cricut! So without further ado, here's my project:

The patterned papers are just things that I've had laying around for a long time, I think they came from paper packs. The stamp is just one of those $1 bin stamps from Michaels. I had a cute frame that I wanted to use, but it was the wrong color even though it was red. I'm weird about red and I don't like using 2 shades of red I just don't think they go well together so I used the frame and traced and cut it out. I used my black ink pad to ink the edges of the red and used a red stamp pad to ink the black paper. The ribbon is just from Hobby Lobby and I have no idea where the buttons are from.

I thought the card needed a little bit more texture so I clear embossed a pattern on the frame.


  1. Great embossing! Love those buttons too! Thanks for joining us in the My Creative Time ~ Designer's Challenge. :)
