Color & Contour – Friends

Thanks for joining me today.  I wanted to have another play with a few challenges that I have already participated in along with the next Stampin’ Through the Catalog stamp set choice: Color & Contour found on page 98 of the Annual Catalog.

I chose to play with another line from the current Tic Tac Toe board (#126) along with the sketch from TGIF (#329).

Here is the result:



  • Floral Cluster: Three Flowers from the Color & Contour stamp set were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a scrap of Basic White cardstock.  Using the two-step fill-in coordinating Floral stamp and Real Red ink the Floral Petals were colored.  The Flowers were then die-cut with the coordinating die from the Scalloped Contours Dies set.
  • Accent Panel (1): (2⅝ x 4”) Black and White Cross Hatch patterned piece of paper from the Hostess Pattern Party Designer Series Paper pack.
  • Accent Panel (2): (3⅛” x 4½”) Basic Black cardstock die-cut with one of the scalloped frame dies from the coordinating Scalloped Contours Dies set.
  • The truncated sentiment, Friends, from the Positive Thoughts stamp set was stamped onto a scrap piece of Real Red cardstock (1⅝” x ½”) with Versamark ink and heat-set with Black Embossing Powder.

All of the elements were adhered to a Basic White card base (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) as per the sketch ensuring that the Flowers remained the primary focus.

This card meets the requirements for the current Flower Challenge (#59), so I decided to participate.

Again, Black and White with a pop of Color is always a great combination.  Have a favorite color?  Just use that one and the card will still be wonderful!

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today.   Cheers,  Jolanda!

  1. Wonderful design Jolanda. Love the black and white design with a pop of red. The flowers are so pretty clustered over the grid background. Thanks for joining us at The Flower Challenge!
