Stamp Simply #96 – Little Black Dress!

Published by at 10 30 pm under Challenges,General Purpose Cards

Keyword ssnotime96 – There is no time limit. You can play this challenge and upload your project at Splitcoastand/or your Blog, anytime at all. You (and that means anyone and everyone, blogger or not!) can play as many times as you like!!! The point is to keep it simple, quick and have fun!!! Please link back here.

Little Black Dress – The staple of every women’s wardrobe — or so they say. How many of you actually HAVE a little black dress? Not me! Anyway, today’s challenge is to make a project of understated elegance using black and white. If you need to add in a little pop of another color, that’s fine, as long as the project is primarily black and white and its overall feel is that of understated elegance. I think this one will produce some real beauties! Can’t wait to see!!!

Check out the great samples for the Stamp Simply Challenge today on the blogs of these designers:

Please bear with us as we are all uploading and linking on Thursday night. Everyone should be uploaded by Friday morning.

You can see all Gallery Submissions here. Thanks, girls!

And here is my mostly black and white card of understated elegance — LOL!


Well, maybe I messed up on the understated elegance part — LOL! But it’s a fun card and it’s mostly black and white.


The black layer under my Prima flowers is the Peony Nestability by Spellbinders. The corners are Cuttlebug dies. Silk Ribbon is from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

And as you read this I am off vacationing!!! A fun girl time trip!!! I am actually going to meet, IRL, many of the Stamp Simply DT girls linked above — can’t WAIT! I’ll tell you all about it when I get back!!! Thanks much for stopping in!
