Black and White Checked Remarkable You

Happy Friday Stampers ~ this Black and White Checked Remarkable You uses a favorite paper of mine!

Today I will be doing a lot or organizing but will take some time to reward myself in my craft room.  I have a lot to get done but I know I stay motivated when I have a little play time.  I still need to make some cards for my blog and I also need to make my video for Sunday.  Guess I have my craft plan for the day!

I loved, loved, loved the black and white checked paper from the Holiday catalog.  I was so sad to see it go.  That’s okay as we have this fabulous paper in the Occasions catalog.  If you love black and white paper like I do, let me show you how to use that paper to create great cards! Check out the class here.












I am slowly working through my images I colored previously and today’s card uses another one.  I had a little of the black and white paper from the Holiday catalog left.  I decided I would use it with one of my colored images.  I had colored the image with Calypso Coral watercolor pencil so I chose that color for my card base.  I added a piece of the black and white checked paper.  I cut out my image and attached dimensionals to the back.  To add some interest, I took a 1″ strip of Calypso Coral and using my scoring board I scored it every 1/8″.  I scored each line 3 or 4 times so they would really show up.  I mounted the strip onto a piece of Whisper White that was 1 1/4″ wider with the embossed lines up.  This strip was then mounted onto a piece of Basic Black that was 1 1/2″ wide.  I attached these strips to the lower half of the card base.  My flower was then added to the card base.  Because I love my bling, I added some rhinestones scattered around the background and a strip  along the lower left hand of the embossed piece.  Check out my Black and White Checked Remarkable You card below!
