‘Tis the Season – Penny Black Merry and Joy Inspiration #5

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

I have another card to share with you using Penny Black products from the ‘Merry and Joy’ release.

This card is not my usual go-to style, but it was fun making something a little different. I die cut the Scarlet Season creative die from red and green coloured card stock. I adhered the skeleton die cut layer over the top of the red flowers, but for the leaves, I used the skeleton die and embossed the details into the leaves using an embossing mat in my die cutting machine.

I created a thicker Merry sentiment, by adhering several layers together. The ‘Tis the Season’ sentiment is from an older sentiment set called Holiday Snippets.

I did lots of ink blending in the background. The cursive handwriting stamp is called Script, which is an older cling stamp.

I covered the red flowers and the merry sentiment with a little bit of clear shimmer pen.

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.

Noel – Penny Black Merry and Joy Inspiration #3

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

I’m back again with another Christmas card using new Penny Black products from their latest releases, ‘Merry and Joy’.

I stamped and coloured the Winter Garden cling stamp onto some Neenah Solar white card stock using a stamping press and Memento Tuxedo black ink. I then coloured in the image with Copic markers, using more wintery muted tones. Once I had finished colouring the image, I re-stamped it again, but this time with VersaFine Onyx black ink. I like to do this as it gives a crisper, more defined image. I then fussy cut around the whole image.

I die cut the Star Noel creative die several times from white card stock and adhered them together to create a thicker sentiment. For the top layer, I covered the surface in embossing ink and Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder and heat set it. I did two layers of embossing powder, as this gave a smoother and thicker finish.

I adhered all the elements onto a circle shaped note card, which I created myself.

I added in some details onto the berries with a white gel pen.

Noel and Joy – Penny Black Merry and Joy Inspiration #2

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

I’m back as promised with some more Christmas cards using new Penny Black products from their latest releases, ‘Merry and Joy’ and ‘Autumn Bliss’.

I think I had my Laura Bassen hat on when I made these cards – I love her style and everything she makes is AMAZING! She often makes cards with stripes on them, so I borrowed a leaf from her book.

For this first card I die cut the Star Noel Creative die from a panel of white card stock, but instead of using the positive of the die, I used the negative part. To create the stripes underneath the Noel, I cut some thin strips from scrap card stock and adhered them to the base card. I popped up the Noel sentiment with some mounting foam. The holly image and the Merry Christmas sentiment are from the Carefree Christmas stamp set.

My second card continues the stripy theme, but this time I die cut the Merry and Joy Creative die from white card stock several times and adhered them together to create a thicker sentiment.

The Holly image is again from the Carefree Christmas stamp set and the white heat embossed sentiment is from the Merry Up sentiment stamp set.

And here they are together.

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,

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.
