So glad I grabbed a few moments to make a card for the #18 Virginia's View challenge - Geometric Patterns....None of my stamps were very forcoming with such shapes but this embossing folder was just the thing.  I inked up one side before passing it through the cuttlebug and yippee for once the ink took evenly over the white card. I trimmed that down and layered it onto a black to frame it and tie in with the black items on the card.  I stamped the vase on orange card and fussy cut it and die cut the spray (my NBUS element) in black and orange so I could cut off the flowers and adhered them to the stem.  Then I die cut the sentiment in orange and black to give it a shadow effect.  I am posting my card to Darnell's #5 NBUS challenge....who so makes you look at the growing stash and make sure you USE it.  I'm quite pleased with my card as orange is not one of my goto colours.  Thanks for taking a peek


  1. Stunning card Robyn...I love the way you inked and embossed the background...and that black stamped on orange looks great! Have a great weekend x

  2. Hi Robyn, beautiful card, love the asia touch in there!

  3. I love the Asian feel of this, Robyn! And thank you for giving me renewed hope that inking one's e/f and having it work is not just a myth!! Oy, how many times I've tried! I shall not give up after seeing this!! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #5 ~ which was so long ago now! I’m sorry that nursing the Mister back to good health has delayed my visit to thank you. Thank you for your good wishes and prayers! I hope both your new grandchild's arrival and your reno goes smoothly!!Hugs, Darnell
