Magic on Cardstock Class

When I have seen samples of cards using the Black Magic Technique, I loved it. I changed the name a bit though in my title for the post because I do not like the name of the technique.

Personally, I have always liked black for a background. When I used to take my children to have their pictures taken I was always partial to the poses that had a black background. Nope, I don't care for white backgrounds. Black makes things pop (stand out)!

I have 3 cards finished. I have 1 more started but not finished yet. When I get it done I will post it on here for you to see.

Stampin' Up! Colors I used for this card are basic black, tangerine tango, and whisper white. Stamps: tart n tangy and sincere salutations. Tools: 1 3/4" scallop circle, 1 3/8" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, 1 3/4" x 7/8" oval punch, big shot, elegant lines embossing folder, white gel pen, and stampin' sponge. Accessories: basic pearls.

Stampin' Up! colors I used to make this card are regal rose, rose red, basic black, and naturals white. Stamps: thoughts and prayers. Tools: scallop trim border punch and stampin' sponge. Accessories: 1/4" black grosgrain ribbon.

Stampin' Up! colors I used for this last card were rich razzleberry, basic black, whisper white, and regal rose. Stamps: upsy daisy and sincere salutations. Tools: eyelet border punch, ticket corner punch, scallop oval xl punch, 1 3/4" x 7/8" oval punch, an white gel pen. Accessories: 5/8" organza ribbon and basic pearls.
I think these cards turn out beautiful! I know that I am partial though. Thanks for stopping by and leave a comment!

Now go-n-stamp!!
