Especially For You – Penny Black

simplicity sister

Hi friends! Today I have a card made with some pretty darn cute images from Penny Black. I’ve used the Time to Celebrate stamp set and the sentiment is from the Banners Sentiment set.

To create my scene, I stamped the cute puppy dog in Tuxedo black ink. Then I did some stamp surgery and cut off the balloon from another image in that set and stamped that above his tail. I used a Copic multiliner to draw the balloon string and attached it to the dog’s tail. Then I stamped the bees and the sentiment.

Instead of colouring with Copic markers, which is my go to medium, I decided to get out my Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. It certainly was very therapeutic to colour!

Hello – Penny Black

Hello! I think Adele’s song was playing on repeat the whole time I made this card, but it’s a good song, and I quite like how the card turned out as well!

I used the Penny Black slapstick/cling stamp called Birthday Tweetings (well part of the stamp) as well as the Chat Bubbles Creative die set.

I stamped and then coloured the phone with Copic markers. I fussy cut the phone, as I didn’t need to bird this time round, although it is a very cute and whimsical image.

The background looked a little plain to me, so I decided to use the Chat Bubble Creative die set and emboss the speech bubbles into the background using an embossing mat in my die cutting machine. I find that this adds more interest to the card, without taking away from the focal image.

I adhered the phone and sentiment with some foam tape and then mounted that onto the card base with more foam. I hand drew the phone cord.

Build a House – Penny Black

I’m back with another card using Penny Black products from their recent Bliss release. This time I had fun playing with a Creative die called Build a House. So many fun combinations can be made with this die. I opted for a really clean and simple card.

I coloured the house parts with a mixture of Copics and Distress inks. Once assembled, I coated the roof and front door with some clear Wink of Stella for some shine. It’s a bit hard to tell, but I put some Glossy Accents into the windows to give them a more realistic look.

The sentiment is one that I created from two sentiments from the All Things Great stamp set. I did a little bit of stamp surgery, and that allows me to get more mileage from my stamp sets.
