OTWC #43

Hi everyone!  This week's issue of Off The Wall Craftiness inspiration is just plain and simple.
Black and White.
Take a look at the inspiration photo.



I could NOT wait to ink up last month's new Wilson Designs stamp set: Simply Silhouettes.
Have I mentioned just how much I like this set? Especially this little girl silhouette. Soo sweet!
This card will be linked up over at The Moxie Fab World for their new challenge:  The Appearance of Cameos Challenge in the Moxie Fab World!!


I was telling my friend Jen about my obsession lately with embossing folders and just had to use another new one.  I believe it is by Cuttlebug and goes perfectly with my favorite frame from Simply Silhouettes. 


This week's sponsor is Third Coast Stamps.  Want to win a sweet prize?  Just go link up a new project over at Off The Wall Craftiness and remember if you use Wilson Designs stamps, you get an extra chance to win!  Just let Kim know in the comments!

It's so elegant but with the perfect touch of cuteness. I'll have to look into some smashing embossing folders like this... darn you and your card powers!

Your execution of this is just fabulous! You have no idea how much I am missing my die cuts, punches, and embossing folders!!! This is just making my mouth water girl! I am pretty sure this is one of the ones I own too!

A perfect combination of silhouettes and embossing. Your ribbon use is phenomenal in this card and the previous post.

Gorgeous card Miss Amy!!!

nancy jane said...

This card is stunning. The embossing and colors give the card an elegance that is countered by the innocence of the silhouette. Great layout, too.

Anne said...

Phenomenal!! I love everything about this card: the colors, the silhouette, the bling!!

Audrey Pettit said...

Wow, your card is stunning!! I just popped over from Moxie Fab World to check out all the fabulous cameo projects, and I absolutely adore yours! This is just so elegant. Love the embossed panel and love the black ribbon and scalloped edge. Gorgeous silhouette image and I love the scattering of silver pearls, too. Really beautiful!

Colleen Dietrich said...

Amy, you're right: your embossing folder is just perfect for that silhouette frame! I've used a frame stamp, as well, for a card that I will post late, late tonight for Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple Design Team. I'm their Guest Designer tomorrow, and I love the frame I've used.

Must say, Amy, that I always like your cards. You have a wonderful style! And I'm honored that you dropped by my blog to leave a comment. :D

Lee Anne said...

This is beyond perfect. The bow is beautiful and the embossing folder adds such nice texture.

Eva said...

Great layeres, like the way you used the scalloped edge border. Black and white is always a winner...and the sentiment is awesome.

Diane Jaquay said...

STUNNING card Amy, love the background embossing and that beautiful silhouette!!!
