Being cool is always important

Happy Tuesday, everybody! Hope your week has started off nicely! I sure am loving life and I cherish every minute I spend in my studio! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! A new ‘Black & White + One Color’ challenge has started today over at The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge and our sponsor is Eureka Stamps so be sure to come on over and play! I created a fun birthday card using the sponsor’s Cool Cat with Shades image and Being Cool sentiment from my stash. Isn’t this guy really just the coolest?!

For the ‘Black & White + One Color’ challenge this fortnight, we are to use black and white and a choice of one other color along with the twist of ‘Add Spots’ as shown in the photo below. I used black and white plus neutral tan as my one color, and I did play the twist by adding a strip of black and white polkadot paper.

I cut a 5-1/2″ square top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock along with a CutCardStock Basis 80# Black cardstock layer and some patterned paper pieces. I printed the digital image and sentiment on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock, and fussy cut the image and die cut the sentiment. I also printed ‘Happy Birthday’ on the computer, trimmed it into a strip and adhered it to the bottom of the image. The finishing touch on this one was the addition of three square gemstones in the bottom left corner.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of patterned paper, added a layered CRAFTplorations Happy Happy Clear Sticker and layered the panel on CutCardStock Basis 80# Black cardstock.

And one more peek… this image and sentiment are just so stinkin’ cute I can’t stand it!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. I had a loud chuckle at this card, it’s just great, a wonderful fun card. I love the mono effect of it too. You have been very busy. Can I have a little of your mojo please?
