TGIFC ALL ON BLACK - #tgifc225


Join us this week for #tgifc225 - All On Black.  As usual, I have done my own thing by not having a black card base, but black still features heavily in the background of my card!  If you love black, then this challenge is for YOU and I hope you will join in and submit your own design at the challenge site.  Just click on the banner below to visit!


One thing I never have a problem with is working with Black.  Technically not a colour, it is still my favourite!  I very rarely make a project without it in some form.  Just about every piece of clothing I own is black or at least, has it in it.


This card is bold and dramatic.  The gorgeous Magnolia is stunning in it's size but it is the black background that adds drama to the card.  I used my Stampin' Blends to colour this piece and opted not to put a sentiment on the front.  Can you see the very subtle embossing over the card front?  The Subtle Embossing Folder has to be my all time favourite!  Just look at the gorgeous texture!


I wanted the ribbon detail to be dramatic too, so I punched holes in my card to weave it in and out before tying it off in a lovely big bow.  Yes, after all that hard work colouring I punched holes in it.  So glad I didn't mess it up! A few well placed sequins completed this dramatic look.

You have until next Friday to submit your own creations.  You may very well be our favourite pick for the week!  Good luck!

If you want the supplies to recreate my project, I would be delighted to be your demonstrator.  Click on the pictures below to shop my New Zealand store 24/7!

  1. Love your card Paula. Was wondering, how did you get the flowers pink? I see no pink Blends listed. Did you color the background with Black Stampin Blend? Such a stunning card.

    1. Hi Loralee, I used the ivory and Bronze Blends to create the soft coral colour of the flowers. Yes, the Black Blends was used to colour the background. Glad you like it!

    1. Monika, this card was created simply by stamping the flowers and then colouring them in with alcohol markers (Stampin' Blends). The background was created with a Black marker.
