Spotlight Stamping

My craft class is doing Spotlight Stamping this week so I had to come up with a couple of quick cards as samples so I've made two very similar using Hero Arts Flower Wood Background stamp.

The first one I use just stamped in black on white card then with white ink on a snippet of black card for the spotlight so I'm entering this into Pixie's Snippets Playground

The second one I've just coloured some  of the spotlight with blue Promarker. The blue card for layering and the ribbon are also coloured with the Promarker as I didn't have anything matching. I'm entering this one into Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge which this week is Stamping and/or Sapphire (and of course butterflies)

Stickles, ribbon and a butterfly greeting finish both cards


  1. A really striking creation Kimbo, your card would fit in very nicely sat Allsorts this week.

    It's great to see you over at the Playground this week, so pleased you joined in.

  2. Hi Kimbo, I really like how you've spotlighted this card. I have this stamp hidden away somewhere and now must get it out again. Barbxx

  3. I love the design of this card. Really like monochromatic schemes too!

    Thanks for entering this into the Snippets Playground.

    Brenda and Viv are in charge of the tree house if you feel like some hooch later!

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  4. Im waiting with baited breath. As Arnie would say "I'll be back!" Hugs Mrs A.

  5. I like this idea very much, spotlighting one area, it is very effective. Love the background stamp, it looks so good with that splash of colour.
    It is good to see you over at the Butterfly Challenge.

  6. I'm back!!! Looks classic in the black and white but my how different it looks with the blue element added in. Thankyou for fluttering by and your card will be entered into the draw twice. Hugs Mrs A.

  7. I thoroughly enjoyed your spotlight snippets cards, Kim! You've inspired me to add this style to my to-do list!! Enjoy the weekend! Hugs, Darnell

  8. Two lovely cards. It is always fun to see the same design done up in different colours!
