PWC319 Red, Black and White

This is a love card.  Not in the traditional sense.  It's about shoes.  Shoe lust, you either get it or you don't.  If you get it, then you probably have seen every episode (and movie) of "Sex and the City", stopped women on the street that you don't know to ask where they got their shoes, have purchased shoes that you don't have anything to wear with (yet), stand in your closet just to admire your footwear, you think the higher the heel the better, would never wear sandals without a fresh pedicure, and have or have to have the Sassy Shoes stamp set from Paper Pretties.  But I'm getting ahead of myself...

It's Wednesday, that means it's time for another Paper Pretties challenge.  For July, all the challenges are color challenges.  This week's color combination is "Red, Black and White".   A crowd favorite that will be lots of fun for you.  Don't forget to add your card at the link up area on the challenge blog so you're in it for a chance to win five digis of your choice.  We can't wait to see what you make.

Red, black and white is such a fun combination.  You can go in so many directions, anything from a cutesy country gingham look, maybe a Christmas card, or even a sophisticated and sleek birthday card.   My choice was a cute friend card.  The stamps in this set are outlines so for this card in order to get a red shoe I stamped on the same card stock that I used to die cut the heart background.  Then I cut it out an popped it up on a die cut heart.  I made a belly band, stamped the sentiment on that, tied some twine around it, added a charm before tying the bow and attached it to the heart background, then popped the heart with the shoe on top of that.  Voila!

Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties "Sassy Shoes- clear"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black"
paper - Stampin' Up "Basic Black" and "Cherry Cobbler" card stock; Bazzil "Snow White" card stock
miscellaneous - Simon Says Stamp "Floating Hearts" die; Spellbinder's "Scalloped Hearts" and "Hearts" dies; waxed black linen twine; shoe charm

  1. Gorgeous card and yes I definitely get it. Love it. Thank you for sharing at CFTH challenge.

  2. I do love shoes, but, unfortunately, I don't have the pedicure (or pedigree) to wear sandals properly. Nonetheless, I wear them anyway. ;^)
    This is a darling card, Chris! Love all the fab die cuts you used in your color combo! It goes without saying that I love the sentiment! :^)
    Hugs, Penny
