All White with. . . . .

I've been admiring all the beautiful cards posted for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and decided I wanted to join in the fun! They would like us to make an all white card with a colored image.

I just happen to have this cute snowman stamp still on my desk from my wintery scene card, so I inked him up and colored him in, cutting him out and adding him to my small, Swiss Dots embossed panel. I then layered that onto my white card which is embossed with the Tim Holtz snowflake embossing folder. My sister's birthday falls during the winter months, so I think I'll be saving this card for her.



I really like how a brightly colored image looks on an all white card, so I just HAD TO make another one! This time I used a Hero Arts flower.



I had fun adding black enamel accents to all the dots on this one!

I hope everyone's week is off to a good start! I have four more days of work this week, then nine, glorious days off! Hope to get lots of card making done!

Thanks for stopping by today! :)

Pretty cards Barb, I love the pop of colour against the white. I am still on school holidays at the moment, I bet you are looking forward to your time off work. I love all the extra crafting time!

Very cute cards Barb!. They look great!! You inspired me to take out my only Tilda and make a white card with her. I followed your lead with embossing folders - it's about all you can do when it's all white. It's a fun challenge that makes us think outside the box. Thanks for inspiring me to do this one!!!

Awww, your snow guy is so cute Barb and that flower is stunning on the white background! Love all the dry embossing. Yay, almost vacation time for you! Don't you just love having time off?!

Your two cards are lovely Barb, the embossed BG adds so much texture. Your gregarious, happy orange flower radiates warmth and vitality and has a tactile quality, I just want to touch it!
