For You – Penny Black

simplicity sister

I’m back with another Penny Black card. No stamps used on this one, only dies. I used the Party For You sentiment die and the Love is Growing die. To adhere all the dies to the card panel, I first applied a piece of double sided adhesive sheet to the back of my card stock. I then ran the dies through my die cut, essentially creating my own die cut stickers. It saved me a lot of hassle as I didn’t have to apply an liquid adhesives which can get messy.

Hello – Jane Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

I’ve really had a lot of fun playing with Jane’s latest stamp set called Daisies. It is such a versatile set and the images are really easy to colour. Copic Markers are my favourite way to add colour to an image, and that’s what I have used again here. I added a really subtle blue around the daisies for some added interest. You can find my card here on the Jane’s Doodle blog.

Happy Birthday – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

I’m popping in with another card using one of Jane’s Doodles latest stamp sets called Daisies. This card is pretty much identical to one of my cards from the last blog hop (which can be found here), but I decided to step it up a bit and create my own plaid background (using the Stripes and Dots stamp set) and changed up the sentiment and the colours.

First up I stamped the daisy stamp onto some white card stock and coloured the image with Copics. I then fussy cut around the flowers before adhering it with foam dimensionals onto a yellow card base.

For my second card, I die cut some clouds from some masking paper. I then sponged on some Salty Ocean distress ink and moved the mask several times to create the cloud scene. The stork and baby were coloured with Copic markers and I then fussy cut around these before adhering them with foam dimensionals.

Watercolour Medallion – Penny Black

simplicity sister

I’m back with another Penny Black card using some products from their latest release.

I usually create a background like this one with distress inks. But this time I used Kuretake watercolours instead. What I love about these paints is that they are so creamy. I started by wetting some water colour paper with plain water and a paint brush. I then randomly painted on some teals and blues and let the water do the blending. I dried this with my heat tool, before putting some of the watercolours onto my craft mat and adding water to make little pools of colour. I then dabbed the paper into the paint to create the splotches. I did this several times until I was happy with the result.

Hello Penny Black | Marion Vagg

Once the panel was completely dry, I die cut it with the Penny Black Medallion Creative die. I removed some of the die cut pieces and then adhered the rest onto a card base with some liquid glue. The Hello die cut is from the Penny Black Hello Christmas word set. I really love how it turned out.

Hello Friend – Jane’s Doodles

Happy Easter! I have a card over on the Jane’s Doodles blog at the moment. It uses the Under the Sea stamp set and the sentiment is from the Hello Friend stamp set. By the way, Jane is having a sale at the moment – 20% off all stamps. Shop here.

After stamping the fish in some waterproof ink, I water coloured the scene using my Kuretake water colour paints. I mixed in some of the white pearlised paint with the aqua paint, and it turned out beautifully. It has a nice lustre and shine to it.
