Colour Pop Challenge!

Hi all! Welcome to another challenge! We've got a classy one for you this time - we want you to make a card, or other paper-crafting project, using black, a white and a pop of colour.... very classy don't you think?!

Now, looking at the cards we three A Passion for Papertrey girls have come up with (with no consultation!) you might think it has to be pink but it certainly doesn't! You can use whatever colour you like!

I used a negative die cut for my card, I wanted to emboss the front of the card but I somehow managed to mis-place one of my Cuttlebug plates so had to leave it clean. Typically I found it straight after I'd adhered the main panel to the card!

Card details:
Stamps: Friends Til The End
Card: Stampers Select White/Basic Black
Ink: Basic Black
Paper: Bitty Dots 2009
Dies: Double Ended Banner/Love Lives Here
Other: Corner Chomper, adhesive gems, copic marker

Over to Caryn:

"I had a great time with this card - I had to try and make something whilst sharing my small desk with three of the children who had the laptop on it and their drinks, cupcakes , sticky fingers, yada, yada....
Anyhoo, this is what I managed to produce from beneath the rubble that was my desk when they finally departed!! I used the Beautiful Blooms II set that hasn't seen daylight for some time and the new True Black ink - OMG it stamps so well!! My splash of colour is Raspberry Fizz - yum!"

Stamps: Beautiful Blooms II, Say It With Style.
Card: Stampers Select, Bazzill Raven
Ink: True Black, Raspberry Fizz
Ribbon: Top Notch Twill (Raspberry Fizz)
Other: Mega Mat Stack 4 die.

Over to Aimes:
"Oooh I do love this design theory of contrasting a pop of colour against a black and white design. I'm normally a sucker for using red for this technique but I couldn't resist trying out my new PTI Raspberry Fizz die ink:

Card Deets
{Hello Friend}
Stamps: Rosie Posie, Modern Basics (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Raspberry Fizz Ink (Papertrey Ink)/London Fog, Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Cardstock: White and True Black (Papertrey Ink)

This super-flat and super simple card uses a simple masking technique and features stamps from Rosie Posie. The sentiment comes from my beloved Modern Basics :)"
