Hello friends! I’m back to share a sneak peek of a card I have over on the Penny Black Simplicity at its Best blog. Lots of colour and flowers – a perfect combination. I hope you will check it out over on the Simplicity site. Head here.
Hello friends! It’s been a little while since I have posted. Not because I haven’t been card making, just because life has been super busy and I haven’t got around to posting!
Today’s card is another adorable Penny Black critter from the Timeless release called Flower Teddy, which I haven’t had a chance to colour until now. I reached for Copic markers again (no surprise there), but I spiced things up a bit with an artsy and inky border.
The border was created by die cutting an oval from white card stock and then inking it with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink. I them spritzed the PB Honeycomb stencil with water and placed it randomly onto the inked border (where the water bleached the ink). To add to the distressed look, I also flicked on water, added some Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide ink and then in some places, inked over the stencil.
The sentiment is from the Happy Hugs stamp set (which I only stamped the Hugs and left off the Happy part). I finished off the card with some white gel pen details on the flowers and grounded the image by creating a floor with Prismacolor pencils.

Hi friends! I hope you have had a great week. Today I have a card to share with you using some Penny Black products. I am really into floral cards at the moment, so when the urge is there, I have to respond. And I think this is probably one of my all time favourite floral stamps from Penny Black – Flower Cascade. The sentiment is from the Choose Happy stamp set.
The floral image was stamped and then coloured with Copic markers. I used a craft knife, a ruler and scissors to partially cut out the image and frame before mounting it onto the card base. I stamped the sentiment in VersaFine onyx black ink. To finish it off, I added some white gel pen detail to the petals and splattered some white ink onto the right side of the card.
I love how it turned out.

Happy New Year! To kick off 2019 I am sharing a sneak peek of a card I have over on the Penny Black Simplicity at its Best blog. Head on over here and check out my card with instructions on how I made it.
Good evening! Today I have a card to share using some Penny Black products. I stamped the images onto the focal panel from the Penny Black Tiny Treasures stamp set and coloured the whole panel in with Copic markers.
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.
