Dynamic Duos #79 It's Black Tie!


Wow, has it been a crazy busy week around here.. I'm off to a Stamp Camp this afternoon and then tonight my weekend can start!! Sorry for the lack of Post this week.. I will be back to my regular schedule next week I promise.

Today is Saturday however and that means it's time for a new challenge at the Dynamic Duos.. This is the one card I managed to create this week.

This week it's Black Tie.. Use Black & Smoky Slate (Silver) with a little Dessert Option of Christmas!


I went all out and created a Christmas Card with some Black & Silver, with a touch of Very Vanilla thrown in. 


I have no idea what the name of this stamp is.. It's been in my stash for a few years and this is the first time it's seen ink. It's from Inkadinkado and the number on the side is 98223 if that helps anyone looking for it. I normally don't use Non SU contraband but this image is GORGEOUS!! 

I stamped the image onto a piece of Very Vanilla with some Black StazOn and then I matted it with some Basic Black card stock and some Silver Glimmer paper. For my card base I created a Very Vanilla standard A-2 size base and then I added a layer of Basic Black cardstock and another layer of some Modern Medley DSP. That was also matted on Silver & Black. 


It needed another extra layer of Silver so I found some Silver thread in my stash from many many years ago.. The addition of a Basic Black button ties it all together.. It's hard to see in the photos but that Silver Glimmer paper really makes this card come to life. It's so pretty in person. 


Head over to the Dynamic Duos Blog and see what the rest of the Design Team created with this week's "Black Tie" Combo.. We hope you will join us, The Challenge ends Thursday at 12pm EST.
