Sweet 17 – Penny Black

simplicity sister

Today I have a birthday card to share with you that I made for my niece’s 17th birthday. I actually made this around the same time as this card that was over on the Penny Black Simplicity At its Best blog. I was having fun playing around with the Penny Black Numbers Creative dies.

This card still uses the inlay die cutting technique for the focal panel with the 17, but for all those blue glittery numbers I made my own stickers using double sided adhesive and some glitter card stock that I had in my stash.

A fun and simple way to make a card, and I didn’t use any inks or stamps!

Sunny Studio Guest Designer

I’m Guest Designing on the Sunny Studio blog this weekend. I got to play around with some of the new Sunny Studio 2016 Winter Release. There are some awesome stamps and dies in this release – be sure to check it out here.

First up I used the Merry Sentiments stamp set and matching die to create a colourful string of lights. The tree branch is from the Holiday Style stamp set and I stamped it several times in two different shades of green. I used the Merry Word die as part of the sentiment.

Next up is another Christmas card using the same sets as before. To add some dimension to the card, I created some ornament hangers with silver thread. To compliment this, I silver heat embossed the sentiment.

Lastly, I have used the Small Holly die (which is a free gift with every purchase from the Sunny Studio store while stocks last) to create a simple embellishment for a gift tin. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Merry Sentiments Stamp set onto some vinyl adhesive stickers.

I am totally in love with one of Jane’s Doodles newest sets called Monster Squad. Those monsters are just so cute and always put a smile on my face – especially when googly eyes are added. Here are a couple of projects I have made over the past couple of weeks that have been over on the Jane’s Doodle blog.

Knowing You – Penny Black

simplicity sister

Today I have a monochromatic card to share with you using Penny Black products. I’ve incorporated stencilling, die cutting and stamping into this one.

I stencilled on some teal ink over the Oscillations stencil, to create the chevron-like pattern. The leaves were die cut from a mixture of white card stock and vellum using the Leaves Creative die set. Finally the sentiment is a favourite of mine and is from the Sentiment Collection stamp set. This set has some beautiful sentiments in it.

To finish off the card I added some clear gems.
