Dynamic Duos #71!

Can you believe tomorrow is the first day of autumn already? We've had so much rain for the past 2 months here it seems. I hate to say it but I'm almost ready for snow and snowmobile season. I know, I'll regret saying that but at least we can get out and about and do some recreational activity!

Today we have 2 great colors to play with at Dynamic Duos, Basic Black & Crumb Cake:

My Card:

It's really hard to capture in a photo but my "Beautifully Baroque" stamped image is embossed twice. First with White Embossing Powder and then again with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. The shimmer is stunning in real life but here is a closer look and if you click on the photo you may be able to see the shimmer close up:

The flower in the center was made using the Simply Pressed Clay Molds and Simply Pressed Clay. Once the flower shape was dry, I used a Basic Black Stampin' Write Maker to color my flower black.
Stampin' Up! supplies I used:
  • Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White
  • Inks: Crumb Cake, Craft White, Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker, StazOn Jet Black
  • DSP: Neutrals Paper Stack
  • Tools: Corner Rounder Punch, Heat Tool, White Embossing Powder, Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, Simply Pressed Clay Molds, Simply Pressed Clay, Ticket Punch, Sponge Dauber
  • Stamps: Gorgeous Grunge, That's The Ticket, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Beautifully Baroque
  • Accessories: Candy Dots
