With Heartfelt Sympathy – Penny Black

simplicity sister

Good evening! Today I have a card to share using some Penny Black products. I love ink blending so decided to pull out some awesome Distress Oxide ink colours – Squeezed marmalade, Spiced Marmalade and Candied Apple.

Once the panel was inked up and dried completely, I stamped the branches and bird (from the Penny Black You & Me stamp set) in Versamark ink and white heat embossed them. The sentiment is from the Penny Black Soar stamp set, also white heat embossed.

I added some translucent Nuvo drops around the branches for some additional details.

40-591 Penny Black You & Me stamp set

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello and welcome to the Jane’s Doodles blog hop where the Design team are showcasing Jane’s latest stamp release – three new stamp sets that are simply adorable. You should have arrived from Milka’s blog. If you get lost along the way, there is a list of blog hop contributors at the end of this post.

Without further ado, here are the three new sets – and I think you are going to love them!

Happer Camper

Outdoors

Patterns

I have two cards to share with you today. The first up uses my favourite animal from the Outdoor set – the moose! He is simply adorable! The trees are from the Happy Camper stamp set.

I partially die cut a circle from white card stock to create the focal piece. This was inked up with Distress Oxide inks. All images were stamped, coloured with Copics then fussy cut. I mounted the focal panel with 3D mounting squares onto a white card base.

My next card uses elements from all three of the new sets. The Patterns stamp set was used to create the tone-on-tone background arrow pattern. Again all images were stamped, coloured with Copic markers and fussy cut. This card is quite a long card (23 cms) so I will be making a custom envelope for this one.

In addition to Jane having a 20% off sale on all clear stamps until this Tuesday, she is giving a stamp set of your choice to one lucky winner. All you need to do is comment on all the blogs in the hop and you’ll be in with a chance to win! The winner will be announced this Wednesday. Good luck!

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.

Especially for You Cityscape – Penny Black

simplicity sister

Happy Sunday. I’m popping in with a card using some Penny Black products. This card turned out a little differently than I had planned, but sometimes you just have to go with the flow.

I started out by blending some Wilted Violet and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks onto the card base. I splattered this with some water to create the stars.

I then die cut several of the Metropolitan Creative die from card stock. These actually come together, but I cut them apart and arranged them to make a more dense city by placing some building behind the first layer of buildings. I adhered the buildings on with Glossy Accents.

The sentiment was white heat embossed onto a black strip of card stock and is from the Banner Sentiments stamp set.

Penny Black products used:

Penny Black 30-423 Banner Sentiments stamp set
Penny Black 51-169 Metropolitan Creative die

Supplies

Stamps: Penny Black Banner Sentiments stamp set

Card: Neenah Solar White 110lb, Black card stock

Ink: Versamark ink, Distress Oxide ink – Blueprint Sketch and Wilted Violet

Other Supplies: Cuttlebug, Penny Black Metropolitan creative die, Glossy Accents, White embossing powder, Heat tool, Anti-static powder bag

Thanks for your company today,

Marion
