Stampin Friends February Blog Hop - Black, White & Whatever You Like

Welcome to the Stampin Friends Blog Hop! I am so excited to be a guest hopper! This month's theme is "Black, White, and Whatever You Like." We could also use gold or silver as an accent. If you're following along the hop, you've arrived from Lynn Streifert's blog.

With black and white as the theme this month, I immediately thought "elegant." That led me to think of weddings! So, I created this card for the newlyweds using black and white, with pink as my accent color, and a touch of gold. What says love more than hearts? The card is A2 size in black, layered with pink, black, and then black and white heart patterned paper. The hearts are die cut using stitched hearts from MFT Stamps. The heart stamped inside the white heart is from the You're So Sweet stamp set by Stampin' Up.  The "For the Newlyweds" stamp is from Teeny Tiny Wishes by Stampin' Up. 

For my 3-D project, I decided to decorate a pre-made favor box. You can buy these at a very reasonable price, or there are a lot of dies available to make your own. The styles of boxes vary and are simple to decorate as little thank you favors. I layered black cardstock and the same heart patterned paper to the front of the box and used die cut ovals from Stampin' Up stitched shapes, the small oval punch, amd some hearts die cut using the same MFT Stamps dies. I added a little gold thread for accent and tied a bow using some black sheer ribbon. The "thank you" sentiment is from Endless Thanks by Stampin' Up.
