Stampin' Up! Color Coach - Card #6 - Dynamic Duos of Smoky Slate + Basic Grey

Smoky Slate Card #3

Dear Stampin' friends

This card is both a Dynamic Duos creation and the sixth card for my self-imposed Color Coach Challenge!! This combines two shades of grey....Smoky slate and Basic Grey....


When I sat down stood up (I craft standing!) to make this card, I grabbed my Basic Grey scraps and found that I had kept a 'negative' from when I made some grey leaves from the Little Leaves sizzlit. I put it against some Smoky Slate cardstock and it WORKED!!! Add some images from the Happy Day stamp set and some pearls and a card was born!!! :)Please visit the rest of the team from the Dynamic Duos Challenge blog to see what they did with Basic Grey....

Don't forget that you can order any of these items at my online store or by sending me an email or calling 0413 405 139.

Materials used:
Stamps - Happy Day
Ink - Basic Grey
Cardstock - Basic Grey, Smoky Slate, Very Vanilla
Accessories - Pearls
Tools - Stampin' Trimmer, Big Shot, Little Leaves sizzlit die, SNAIL


  1. I love this idea Alison! I never think to use the paper which have cut outs :) I will certainly be giving this a try soon!

  2. I love that you used a scrap to make this gorgeous card! So elegant!

  3. I love the gray on gray!! So elegant with the pearls!

  4. I love the tiny pearls that you placed at the tip of each leaf! Such an elegant card!

  5. Love this card so much! I love the grey-on-grey and the sweet pearls. Such an elegant card, Alison!

  6. I can not stamp sitting either! Love the negative space and the use of both grays!
