Playdate Cafe, The Shabby Tearoom and Stamp Something



These are 3 more challenges I entered today. The PDCC #40 found here is all about Black & White with a splash of GREEN. The Shabby Tearoom challenge was 1-2-3. One ribbon, two buttons and 3 punches. Finally the Stamp Something challenge was to have something flowery in the project.

I am enjoying testing myself in the combining of challenges. Really gets me to thinking about how I want a card to turn out. This card turned out kind of shabby chic which I really like.

Now for the Shabby Tearoom challenge I incorporated one satin ribbon, 2 white buttons and 3 punches - circle punch, fiskars border punch and PTI die. Now I do have 3 circles but I took the challenge to be 3 different shapes. That may not have been the intent but I really wanted the flowers for the Stamp Something challenge to be black so they could fit my Play Date Cafe Challenge. Rather than mask and stamp I chose to punch out the flowers. I lined the inside of the card with white and a bit of patterned paper and I also made a matching envelope that is lined with the black & white patterned paper using the PTI envelope liner die.

Supplies:

Cardstock: Papertrey Ink True Black and Stampers Select White
Patterned Paper: PTI Black & White Basics, Basic Grey Capella
Accessories: PTI Vintage Buttons, Mat Stack #1 die, SU! circle punches, EK Success 1.75" circle punch, Fiskars border punch, PTI True Black satin ribbon, DMC floss
Stamps: PTI Round & Round anniversary set

Angy, this color combo (shabby black & white with a touch of green) is to die for! I love how vintage it looks! Nice design element that your stamped image of the two flowers echoes the medallions in your background paper!
