Tune in Tuesday ~ Black and White Cards with a SPLASH of Color with Holly Mays

Tuesday, April 26, 2011


I am VERY excited to share my black and white cards with a SPLASH of color with you! I {heart} this little bunny from Beautiful Day! I knew right away that I had to put something on the board he is holding! That's where Background Soup comes in~ one of my very FAVORITE stamp sets!


The "hello" is from Background Soup...and it is the perfect size to fit on the bunny's board!


Here you can see where I cut out my "hello" image.


Here you can see where I started to lift out my "hello". Notice how I cut the "hello" out like a puzzle piece? When I am done using the "hello" as an individual stamp~ it will fit right back where it belongs!


I used Background Soup on this card...along with I Love Easter! The little flowers are from Neutral Mini Blossoms~ I colored the mini flowers with a red marker. I always use the Neutral Mini Blossoms because I can make the flowers ANY color that I want by using markers, ink pads, etc.


Both of my cards use flowers as a SPLASH of color. A SPLASH of color can be anything~ a flower, ribbon, buttons, cardstock, a colored image~ the possibilities are endless! Also~ you don't necessarily have to use the color red as your SPLASH of color! Use any color that you want!

    Nice cards, Holly. It is intersting how most of the linked cards also have the pop of red on them.
