Red and White on White

 Simon Says Stamp

I am a complete sucker for this style of card.  It can be a little tricky with different "shades" of white but the overall effect is really quite stunning.  I find that my most successful white on white cards are the simple ones,  I can over complicate things if I don't stop myself.  I used the Starlite Black ink instead of black as it would look a bit too harsh and that little hint of shimmer looks so elegant.

What you need
Cardstock - PTI Shimmer white, white
Stamps - PTI Inside and Out: Baby
Ink - Brilliance Starlite Black
Die - PTI Ribbon Tails
Embossing Folder - Sizzix Textured Impressions "Medallions, Frame and Damask"
Ribbon - SU white organza

Next up, what I think maybe one of my favourite cards and certainly a design I will use again.  I didn't want to change anything about the sketch, just love its simplicity and it works so well in red with a hint of black.  

What you need
Cardstock - PTI white, Pure Poppy
Patterned Paper - PTI Pure Poppy collection
Stamps - Inside and Out:  Birthday
Ink - Versafine Onyx Black
Dies - MFT Jumbo Fishtail Flags;  PTI heart

I hope to be back later today with a few more cards. It looks as though we will have an on-again, off-again rainy day, and with a sick daughter, I don't think we will be going anywhere.
