Thinking of You – Penny Black ‘Share the Love’ Inspiration #2

Hello again! I am back with another card for Penny Black using some products from their latest ‘Share the Love’ release. You can check out all the new products here.

Today’s card uses an adorable bear stamp called Fur-ever Yours. Isn’t he the sweetest? I coloured him with Copic markers and die cut it out with the Fur-ever Yours cut out. The sentiment was white heated embossed over the top of his belly using an awesome new set called Only You.

I mounted the bear onto a die cut panel which was made using the Stitched Stackers die set (which is from a previous release). To create the striped background, I cut some coloured card stock into strips and adhered them to the card base – making sure it was centred.

It’s hard to tell from the photos, but the heart has some subtle shimmer and I added some black enamel accents to the bear’s eyes. I love adding all the little details.

Thanks for stopping by. To view and or purchase any of these new products from these releases, head to the Penny Black online store.

I’ll be back soon with another card,

I Love You – Penny Black Share the Love Inspiration #1

Hello! I am back sharing a card for Penny Black using some awesome goodies from the latest ‘Share the Love’ release. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, this release has lots of inspiration for that someone special in your life.

I stamped and water coloured the images from the Tenderness stamp set with Zig clean color real water brush pens, then die cut them out using the coordinating cut outs. The banner and sentiment are from the Banner Blooms set. There is a coordinating cut out set for this stamp set as well, but I didn’t use it for this card.

Once I had all the images coloured and cut out, I arranged them onto some textured card stock with 3D mounting tape and then adhered the panel to a teal coloured card base.

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

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.

With Love – Penny Black Full Bloom Inspiration #5

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is full-bloom.jpg

Hello! I have been busy crafting at my desk this weekend. Today’s card uses products from Penny Black’s Full Bloom release.

This bird image is from the Peaceful Time stamp set, and I stamped it in Copic friendly ink onto some Neenah solar white card stock and coloured it with Copics. I used a Spellbinders circle die to cut around the image. I did extend the branch in the image to reach the edges of the circle using a Copic multi-liner pen.

To create the impressed leaves in the background, I took two of the small leaf dies from the Peaceful Time Cut out creative die set, and repeatedly ran them through my die cutting machine, using a tan embossing mat to impress the images, rather than cut them out. This created a subtle, textured background to mount the focal image onto.

Penny Black – Happy Heart Inspiration #3

Hello friends! Happy New Year! As 2018 is about to come to a close in Australia, I just want to say a big thank you to all my blog readers for their support and encouragement in 2018. I appreciate you all!

Today I have some more projects to share with you using products from the latest Penny Black release called Happy Heart Day.

I stamped the bear and balloon from the Space Reserved stamp set, and coloured them in with Copic markers before fussy cutting them out.

I then used the largest of the Heart Balloons creative dies and die cut one from the front of my card base. The balloon die cut out was inked up with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink and then spritzed with water and dabbed with a paper towel to create the splotchy effect. I then adhered the blue heart to the inside of the card. The sentiment is from the Kisses and Wishes stamp set (I had to do some stamp surgery as I only wanted the top portion of the sentiment).

And for my second project I made a little gift package for some sweet treats. I am a HUGE fan of musk sticks and I would just love to get something like this as an I love you gift. I have used the Heart Balloons dies again, as well as the Love and Miss You creative die.

I scored and folded half an A4 piece of card stock to make the packaging. Before die-cutting, I used the Oscillations stencil and some white pigment ink and sponged on the dots. I then die cut the largest heart balloon into the front panel. The musks were packaged up in a clear plastic sleeve and placed behind the window opening. I die cut three love sentiments from white card stock and adhered them together to form a thicker sentiment and adhered it across the window opening.

Penny Black – More Happy Heart Day Inspiration

Hello friends! I am back today with some more inspiration using products from the latest Penny Black release called Happy Heart Day. There is still time to win some Penny Black prizes in the blog hop from last week, which you can check out here.

For today’s inspiration, I have used the adorable All My Love stamp set.

The sentiments are from the Kisses and Wishes stamp set.

For my first card, I stamped the dog and balloon image onto some white card stock, then coloured them with Copic Markers. I fussy cut the images, but I cut off the top portion of the balloons, as it was going to be a little too tall for my card design. I die cut a circle and trimmed off the bottom portion.  I created a background scene with a hand-made mask and some inks. I popped up the balloons and dog on some mounting foam and hand drew in the balloon strings.

The sentiment is white heat embossed.

My second project uses the same two sets, but this time I created a wine bottle tag. I made my own tag using a paper trimmer, score board and a smaller circle die. Who wouldn’t want to receive a special bottle of wine for Valentine’s Day – perfect for my husband. This image was stamped and also coloured with Copic markers.

All of these products are now available in the online store and you can view the Happy Heart Day catalog here.
