Black Tie Week at Dynamic Duos

It's Black Tie week at Dynamic Duos!!  That means one of our two colors is black and we have a dessert option.  This month, the second color is Poppy Parade and the dessert option is punches.


Heaven Knows You're Special

I love the Flower Fusion sets by Papertrey Ink.  I don't think there is anything particularly original about my layout as I have seen many others have put together three cute flowers with these sets.  But I loved the idea of them in black with a punched flower on top - then I got practically giddy when I found these printed Candi Dots for the center!

Check out what the rest of the design team has put together.  You'll be amazed at the variety of cards that can be put together with a red and black!  Then try it out for yourself and link up - we would love to see what you come up with.

You know how in food, there's nothing better than fresh bread with butter (ie a simple pleasure), well, I believe in stamping, there's nothing better than crisp black stamping on a load of white space - even better with pops of red. I the simplicity of this card!

Awesome layout and design, Kim! You know, the current challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is to make a card with a black card base...this would fit that, too! Love the pop of red, and I adore that PTI flower stamp set. Sweet!

Isn't it great when a classic design comes together, complete with Candi Dots for the centre of your flowers? This is totally cute.

Another fantastic card Kim. The black white & red is really striking. The punch works really well with the PTI stems, must try that :)

Stunning, Kim! So crisp, and clean, and dramatic - the colours look fabulous. I giggled at your serendipitous discovery; the candy dots are perfect!
