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.

I’ve made two very CAS cards with this cute set. First up is a sparkly unicorn frolicking in the clouds. I created the clouds by making a mask from masking paper and sponging on Tumbled Glass distress ink.

Zoo-Licious

I have been having fun playing with my new Recollections stamp set that arrived last week – Zoo-Licious. I am really into cute little animals/creatures designs as they make great birthday cards for kids.
These cards were so easy to make. I am still a beginner when it comes to colouring in with Copic markers, but I am improving – I think! It is also a bit challenging as I am so limited with the number of Copics that I own.

And a close up of the giraffe….with a teeny weeny little bit of Glossy Accents on his spots!! I couldn’t resist.

Supplies:

Stamps: Recollections – Zoo-Licious, Practicing Creativity sentiment – ‘You’re Dandy’
Ink: Versafine Ink – Onyx Black, Memento Ink – Tuxedo Black
Card: X-Press It Blending card
Other Supplies: Copic markers, Glossy Accents, Black felt pen, Googly eyes

So cute or what? Don’t you just love the googly eyes? I do!!

Thanks for stopping by,

Marion
