Love in Black & Vanilla..

Yesterday was a rough stamping day.... My supplies were not liking me! I started with one card for a swap, got my layout together and made the sample and Boom! No card stock in the base color.. lol isn't that how it always works. So back to the drawing board, and I'm know for not making easy swaps either.. I don't know why I just can't make a simple swap, it always involves multiple layers, cutting small pieces.



Enter the messiest card on the planet..lol My base is Basic Black with a layer of Very Vanilla. I stamped the Bella Toile Background on the upper half with Basic Black craft ink and then embossed it in clear powder.



I had black ink everywhere...lol After embossing I attached it to my card base and tied some black grosgrain around the center and stamped my sentiment from the new level 3 hostess set "Occasional Quotes" in black. I wanted to add some pearls and hearts but afterwards it's not quite what I wanted but it looked okay so I went with it. I made 10 of these in a hour and half...lol
