Metropolitan Hugs – Penny Black Sneak Peek

simplicity sister

Hello! Long time, no post!

Well it has been a long time between cards and posting and that’s because we moved house. I’ve unpacked 90% of the boxes, so most things are up and functioning again. I’ve also just finished setting up new new craft space, so I hope to get crafting very soon. It’s been over a month since I have made anything!

Anyway, it’s my turn over on the Penny Black Simplicity at its Best blog today. I made this one before the move. Here is a little peek at my card, but you will have to head to the Simplicity blog for the full reveal.

Blue Birds – Penny Black

simplicity sister

Hello – just a quick post to share a serene little scene using a Penny Black die called Layered Scene. This die set actually comes with two dies that can be layered, but I chose to use just one of the layers. I die cut the scene from white card stock and then used my Copic markers to selectively colour in the different areas. I did add some dimension on the birds by using some 3D mounting foam.

It is very rare that I make a card with no sentiment, but I felt this one didn’t need one.

Christmas Gift Tags – Penny Black

simplicity sister

Merry Christmas! I hope you are all enjoying this wonderful time of the year celebrating the birth of Jesus. I’m all ready for Christmas and for the first time ever, we will be spending Christmas Day with just the four of us and no extended family (but we will be spending time with friends).

Today I have some Christmas tags to share with you made with Penny Black products. I have gone for a simple black and white theme with a pop of colour!

The first tag uses the Tagged Creative die as well as parts of the Poinsettia Bough Creative die, that I coloured with Copic markers. The sentiment is from the Rejoice with Joy stamp set.

The sentiment on the second tag is from the Festive Cheer stamp set, and the floral elements are from the Layered Scene Creative die. I distressed this one with some white pigment ink and a baby wipe to create a chalkboard effect.

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.

PB 17 | Marion Vagg

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