Another Striking Black And White Greeting Card using Shaded Summer Stamp Set

  • Are you enjoying your copy of the new Annual Catalog?
I really enjoyed creating my previous card using Shaded Summer, using just Black and White.  So, I decided to create another card using Black and White and Stampin' Up! Shaded Summer Stamp Set. For this card, I chose a lighter background from the All Together 6" X 6" Designer Series Papers, framed in Basic White, and atop a basecard of Basic Black. I created a wide diagonal Basic Black banner and used that to highlight the die cuts and stamped floral image.  Adding a few Black Matte Dots completed this sophisticated card.   Its very gratifying to be able to create beautiful cards with only black and white.  What more do you need? 

Black and White Floral Greeting carding using Stampin' Up! Shaded Summer Stamp Set

To create today's card, I used a base card of Basic Black Cardstock.  Then a layer of Basic White.  Then I selected one of the Black and White prints from the All Together 6" X 6" Designer Series Paper, found in the "What's New" section of the Stampin' Up! Web site.  I created a wide Basic Black diagonal piece to break up the pattern in the Designer Series Paper, and to use as the image laye for my stamped and die cut images.

I stamped the largest flower image from the Shaded Summer Stamp Set and used the Summer Shadow Dies to die cut the image.  Additionally, I used other dies in the Shaded Summer Stamp set to cut Black and White layered flowers and added them to the image layer.  These dies will be available in the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog, and have been available previously.

To finish my card, I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto a Basic White oval glued to a scalloped Basic Black oval.  These were created using the Double Oval Punch.  Then I added the a few Matte Black Dots to the edge of the Designer Series Paper and next to the sentiment. 

Below are the tools used to create these cards.

New Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogs Release - 3 May 2022.  My current customers who have ordered within the past 6 months have already received their copy of the upcoming 2022-2022 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog. Hope you are enjoying your copy.  You wouldn't believe how dog-eared my last year's catalog has become!

In this day and age, why would anyone want a hard copy of a catalog, you might ask.  

  • Because I love to mark up my copy with items I already have.  
  • Next, I use two or three different sticky notes with items I'm going to order first (my must-haves), next (nice-to-haves), and finally (this is so cute, I should just get it).  
  • Then, I look at the sample cards in the catalog, which I'll copy exactly or use as inspiration to create my own version.  It's so much easier to lay the catalog open to the card idea as you create it rather than trying to access your mobile's phones 

If you do not have a current demonstrator and would like a new Stampin' Up! Annual catalog, please contact me here
