You’ve a Star – Penny Black Full Bloom Inspiration #2

Happy Sunday! I’m back today with another cute Penny Black critter from their latest release called Full Bloom. It’s no secret I’m in love with these little bears, and this one I’ve used today has especially won my heart. It’s called …Star and has a coordinating creative die as well.

My daughter loves soccer and this is her second season. I made this card for a friend of hers who plays on the same team, and celebrated her birthday this weekend.

To make something a little different to my standard card, I made a gatefold card. The image was coloured with Copic Markers and the sun and background were created with Distress Oxide inks (Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn, Squeezed Lemonade and Fossilized Amber).

The #1 die cut on the inside of the card comes in the same …Star cut out die set. The friend sentiment is from the Number 1 stamp set and it is a great set as it has many names which could be substituted such as Dad, Mom, Teacher etc.

The cloud die cut is an older one, but a good one called Silver Linings.

The sun comes with the Friendship cut out die set.

To view and or purchase any of the new products from the Full Bloom release, head to the Penny Black online store.

Thanks for your company today. If you want to know about any of the products I have used, just contact me.

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello! Today I have a Jane’s Doodles card to share with you which was posted on the Jane’s Doodles over a week ago. To see the original post over on the Janes Doodle’s blog, head here.

The rocket is from the To the Moon stamp set and the sentiment is from the Birthday Wishes stamp set. I needed some children’s birthday cards for my stash, and this will be perfect for a little boy. The rocket is coloured with Copics. I created the clouds, by first making a mask from a cloud die, then  blending on some ink with an ink blending tool.

Copics and backgrounds

COPIC_participant

Hi there. I have been taking the Online Card Class – Copics Markers for Card Makers and have really been enjoying learning new ways of using my Copics. I don’t have a ton of Copics, but I am trying to get more mileage out of what I have. For this card I was playing around with creating a brick background as taught by Sandy Allnock on Day 9.

I was going to mount the doggie panel onto a white card panel, but it looked too plain so I went to town with Pumice Stone distress ink mixed with water and had some paintbrush flicking fun! I think it adds to the whimsical look of the card.
