Candy Kisses

Barb started a new group on SCS this year. It's called Challenge Your Stash. CYS group members are to use stuff they already have to create a card/project based on the theme the month's hostess selects. We alternate hostesses, so everyone will get a chance to choose a theme. It's going to be a lot of fun to see what each person does with her own stuff and a unique theme on the 28th of each month.

This month, to kick things off, Barb is the hostess. She selected a color challenge - Black, White and Silver.

What do you think of when you think of silver? Of course, I think of Hershey's chocolate kisses. ;)

Stampin' UP! For the Love of Chocolate (2002)

I used silver embossing powder on the kiss and fussy cut it, layering it on top of the one stamped in black ink. I did that because I didn't want the little strip of paper sticking out of the kiss to be silver and I couldn't figure out any other way to do it.

On the inside of the card, I stamped (black ink) another chocolate kiss...

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Jeanette this is stunning - love everything about it - especially your embossed image over the black, and the sentiment gave me a wonderful smile.

That silver embossed kiss is absolute perfection on this wonderful design, Jeanette! said...

I hardly ever use just black white and silver except in graduation cards but this is lovely.
