This is my card for the release of the set “Bells on Bobtails” by Mark’s Finest Papers.

I love making black & white cards and this one is no exception.

I inked the image and the sentiment in Palette Noir. This is a one layer card with a black matting.

I added some silver half pearls to the horses harness and to the edging of the sleigh.

Since this is such a simple card I also added a beautiful black ribbon, glittery snowflake with a silver half pearl in the middle.

All of the supplies for this card can be found at Mark’s Finest Papers.

This is my card for the release of the set “Brick Wall” by Mark’s Finest Papers/Speedy the Cat Series.

I found a mottled piece of card stock stashed away that was perfect for my brick wall. I inked the brick wall stamp with Palette Burnt Umber.

The vine is inked with TH’s Pine Needles ink and added the pretty paper flowers. I then inked the butterflies with Palette Noir, colored with Copic markers and covered them with some Crystal Effects. I decided to have some fun and added Speedy the Cat to the image.

The sentiment with the gorgeous font is also part of this lovely set.

The colors for this card are mid. yellow and white. I added some lace to give this card a wonderful vintage feel.

Supplies for this card can be found at Mark’s Finest Papers.

Happy Hopping, Nicole

  5. Lovely cards! Your sleigh card is so stunning in black and white with silver accents!

  8. OOooh, black and white sleigh card,so pretty. The brick wall card is cute with the cat. I was wondering if the cat was a stamp or just a copyright logo. Adding the flowers is a great idea and I love the color.

  9. LIke the black and white and a great brick wall that you have going there. Thanks

  10. Nice black and white! Great use of the brick set.
