Warm Hugs – Penny Black Merry and Joy Inspiration #4

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is merry-and-joy.jpg

I’m back with another Penny Black featuring products from the ‘Merry and Joy’ release.

This was a super simple card to create. I stamped the Carefree Christmas image onto some Neenah Solar White cardstock and coloured the image with Copics. When finished, I re-stamped the again (with a stamping press) in VersaFine Onyx black ink to intensify the black outlines. The sentiment is from the Merry Up stamp set.

I adhered the panel to a light blue coloured note card.

Jane's Doodle Banner

I have some Jane’s Doodles cards to share with you today that have been on the Jane’s Doodles blog over the last month or so.

I’ve been on a colour blocking theme of late, and the following two cards use this technique. Head here for the original post. This card uses the Cats stamp set.

Next up is this card which uses the Seamus stamp set and the sentiment is from the All Occasions stamp set. You can find the original post here.

And finally, I have this floral card which uses the Magnolia stamp set and the sentiment is from the Hello Fall stamp set. You can find to the original post here. I created the score lines using a score board and I used an embossing mat to create the oval impression in the centre of the card.

Merry – Penny Black Merry and Joy Inspiration #1

Hello! I’ve got some new Penny Black goodies in the house from their latest releases (Merry and Joy and Autumn Bliss) and I’m excited to start sharing some cards I’ve made with you here at my blog.

This is my first Christmas card for the year and it features a gorgeous creative cut called Bird Ornament. I die cut it from white card stock and coloured in the bird, branches and berries with Copic markers. I then inlaid all the pieces back in around the coloured images. I die cut another bird ornament and trimmed out the inner parts of the die cut to leave the border and ornament top, which I coloured with grey copics and adhered with a liquid adhesive.

The sentiment is from the Merry Builder stamp set, and the branch image in the background is from the Trinkets stamp set.

I’ll be back really soon with some more cards,

Jane’s Doodles – Celebrate

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hi there! I have a really fun card to share with you using Jane’s Doodles stamps. This card has been CASED from a super cute card made by Vanessa Menhorn – and she kindly allowed me to borrow her design. You can find her amazing card and blog here.

I masked off the background with some washi tape and used several Distress Oxide ink combinations to ink up the 3 rectangles. I then stamped the three critters from the Outdoors set and coloured them with Copics. I then trimmed them off in the right places before foam mounting them onto the background. The sentiment is from the All Occasions stamp set.

Such a cute design and I want to thank Vanessa for allowing me to use it. Be sure to check out her blog and her other amazing cards.

Hugs – Penny Black Dreaming Inspiration #6

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is penny-black-dreaming-june-2019.jpg

Hi. I’m back sharing another Penny Black card using yet another cute bear image from the Dreaming release. This bear stamp is called Pawsome Present. I also used the Polaroid die and die cut it from some green card stock. To add some interest to the frame, I stamped some foliage images in green ink for a tone one tone effect. These foliage images are from the Special Friends and the Butterfly Garden sets.

For the subtle chevron pattern on yellow base card, I inked up a sponge dauber with some yellow ink and used the Zigs & Zags stencil. The sentiment is from the Huggable stamp set.

With Love – Penny Black Dreaming Inspiration #5

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is penny-black-dreaming-june-2019.jpg

I’m back with another adorable Penny Black critter. This stamp is called A Present and is from the Dreaming release. The sentiment is from the It’s Your Day stamp set.

I coloured the image with Copic markers and for something different I used Prismacolor pencils to add the shading. The dotty stencil is an older one, but I use it all the time and it is called Oscillations. I die cut the circle window using a standard sized circle die from Spellbinders.
