Flower Cascade

simplicity sister

Hello! I’m back with another card for Penny Black. This card uses a beautiful new cling stamp called Flower Cascade.

PB Enjoy | Marion Vagg

I stamped the image in the top right hand corner and coloured it with Copic Markers. I coloured and cut out another flower and adhered it with foam squares to add some dimension to the card. The enjoy sentiment is a die cut from the Hooray creative die set.

Sunny Studio Guest Designer

Hello. Yesterday I had the privilege of being a Guest Designer on the Sunny Studio blog. I was super fun to ink up some of the latest Autumn release stamp sets – lots of class and cuteness. I recommend that you check out the Sunny Studio store for all their great products if you haven’t already.

This first card uses the Autumn Splendor stamp set. It was fun mixing different colours to create the two-toned leaves. The sentiment was stamped onto a Sunny Studio Stitched Heart shaped die.

Grateful for you Sunny Studio | Marion Vagg

Next up I used the Woodsy Creatures stamp set to create this hilarious bunch of selfie-taking critters! I gave this to a colleague at work.

Just For You Card Set – Penny Black

simplicity sister

Today I have set of four cards to share with you using some new Penny Black products. I used the Swirl Squares creative dies to create a focal panel for each card – one of each design. I used the inlaid die cutting technique – it was a little time consuming placing all the pieces back in, but well worth it in the end. The sentiment is from the Holiday Snippets stamp set and is white heat embossed. Each panel is raised on some craft foam and to finish each one off I adhered a metallic gem.

Love You – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

I’m back with another card using Jane’s Doodles stamps.  You can find it here on the Jane’s Doodles blog. I used the Anemone and Love stamp sets. The anemone (I had to extend the stem with a black marker) was coloured with Copic markers and I thought it looked rather like a poppy by the time I was done with it. I stamped the sentiment in VersaFine black ink and then clear heat embossed it. I made a small slit with my craft knife above and below the sentiment and put the stem of the anemone through the slits.

Love You JD | Marion Vagg
