Dynamic Duos #87: Black Tie Week

Hello, stampers! This weeks challenge at Dynamic Duos is to create a project using Black and Melon Mambo.  The Dessert option is to use umbrellas.   I thought I didn't have any umbrellas, but being a Dynamic Duo designer, I thought I should try to include the dessert option if at all possible. So, I dug thru my tiny stash of stamp sets (ha! ha!) and found one. :) 
It happens to be a VERY old stamp set that was also a Sale-a-bration stamp set from way back when.  Here's the challenge:
And here's the card I made:
A cheer up buttercup kind of card. : )
STAMPS: Send a Celebration (retired), Geometrical, Petite Petals, Banner Blast (SAB set), and You're Lovely (SAB set)
INK: Onyx Black Versafine, Versmark and White craft pad
PAPER: Melon Mambo, Basic Black and Whisper White
ACCESSORIES: Melon Mambo and Basic Black DSP, White embossing powder, Melon Mambo reinker, Black Watercolor crayon, Aqua Painter, Petite Petals punch, Chalk Talk Framelit, Finishing Touches Edgelit, Itty Bitty Shapes punch, Arrows Textured embossing folder, 5/8" White Organza Ribbon, Basic Pearls and Gray Bakers Twine.
Chalk Talk Framelits Dies Punch Pack Petite Petals Clear Bundle Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Geometrical

Thanks for stopping by! Have a happy stamping day! 


  1. What a pretty card! I love all the wonderful detail, very eye-catching.

  2. Oh, Annette! I love how you brought out one of my favorite stamps (evah!) and updated it. So, so pretty - and perfect for this color combination!

  3. Definitely cheery! Every little detail is cute! I especially like that (new?) chevron embossing folder--it seems to be indicating "life is looking up," perfect with your sentiment.

  4. Another fantastic creation! Love the use of the new Arrow EF along with all of the other details- gorgeous!!

  5. So beautifully detailed, Annette. Love the white ink on the card stock- great design. Smiles to you!

  6. Very pretty! your found stamp was just perfect for this challnge. (I think that's why I have such a difficult time getting rid of retired stamps, etc.

  7. Beautiful card Annette. Love the tag and pretty flowers. Great job with the colors.


Thank you for taking the time to post a comment with me! Happy stamping!
