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.

From Our Home to Yours – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

It’s been a bit quiet on my bloggeroo lately. I haven’t been putting my feet up though, but rather rushing around like a headless chook! School is finally finished for the year – reports are written and have been sent home, classrooms packed up and all the end of school concerts and presentations done!  I’ve survived my kid’s birthday party and now I’m madly doing the last minute dash to be ready for Christmas. I’m almost there! But I’m tired.

Anyway, I have a card to share that was over on the Jane’s Doodle blog last week using the Winter Wishes and Mr and Mrs Claus stamp sets.

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.
