One swap,three cards....


*click on any pictures to enlarge*
Here are more cards I created for another of  Barbara's many swaps (SCS:barbaralynn)
I joined in, in her 'Red and White' , ' Black and White' and ' Red and Black' cards's swap
by taking a spot in each of those categories.
We  needed to use just the above colors on our card—no other colors were allowed.

This is my take on the old classic black and white :

Card Deets: White and black c/s,'Well Scripted' SU stamp,lrg white circles eyelets,white ribbon,
    'Victoria' CB folder,beaded oval nesties, MS lattice punch, one jewel. Tecnique: embossing

Next, are my red and black cards:


Card Deets:
real red,cherry cobbler and black c/s,'Upsy Daisy' SU stamp, d/p: 'Sugar Rush' by Basic Grey, label 8 nestie, black and red embossing powders, sm. butterfly punch, lrg red and black brads,  black,red, burgundy ribbons, glamour dust gliter, 'Swiss Dots' CB folder.
Tecnique: wet and dry embossing, layering, shaped card using nesties

Note: I used two different takes for these cards, wanting to show a 'positive-negative' effect tecnique

Lastly, here are my red and white cards:


I must say that these turned out to be my favorites amongst all the three entries. :o
It is also my very first try at a round card and for sure I will be making many more using same method.
I love their fresh, crispy look to them...

Card Deets: real red c/s, real red and  onix black inks, d/p:'Love Notes' by Making Memories,circle and scalloped nesties, 'Vintage Label' SU sentiment, 'Just Saying' Inkadinako sentiment, red rhinestones sqaures by Kaiser, Glamour dust glitter, lil red bow. Tecnique: easel card, round shaped card
Here you have it...a gallery of three intertwined colors :o)  Which one is YOUR favorite?? :o)
Have  a GREAT day you all ....hugs and smiles
