SAY IT WITH SCALLOPS AND KIWI KISS

This card uses Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #56. I used one of the new In Colors of Kiwi Kiss and paired it with Basic Black and Whisper White and the new stamp set, Say It With Scallops. Each image from this stamp set fits the new Scallop Square Punch perfectly and is Stampin' Up!'s chosen Ronald McDonald House stamp set this year. Two dollars from the sale of each Say It With Scallops stamp set goes to Ronald McDonald House charities.

The idea of placing the "hi" in the Build-A-Brad came from Sherri Barron's awesome card found HERE. To make my Build-A-Brad black, I simply colored it with a black Sharpie permanent marker. I ran out of black brads and used the same trick on silver brads! This card measures 4 1/4" x 4 1/4". RECIPE
Stamps: Say It With Scallops
Paper: Bella Rose DP, Whisper White and Basic Black CS
Ink: Kiwi Kiss
Embellishments: Build-A-Brad, Brads, Kiwi Kiss 5/8" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon

Gorgeous card, Nancy! I saw MJ make a card with the HI just like that. I already ear marked that part to case as well. It adds so much to that image.

Thanks so much for playing!

Beautiful Card!!

This is gorgeous! I think B&W with kiwi is such an elegant combo!

I knew how to change the color of a brad with embossing powder, but I never thought to do it with a Sharpie! Very clever!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful card!

I totally love what you've done with Beate's sketch!! I love the Kiwi with the black and white...and that yummy ribbon!!

Lisa Page said...

Very clean! I have these supplies and I'm gonna case, well, with different color paper and ribbon 'cause I don't have anything that's Kiwi Kiss except for cardstock! Did you know that you can color the HodgePodge Hardware with black sharpies also? It works really well! Thanks for sharing!
