I have a Penny Black card to share with you today – using two of my most favourite crafty items – Dies and Oxide Inks. I *may* have added a couple more Distress Oxide inks to my stash recently, so I was just itching to use them.

I started by masking off a border on the front panel of my card, and blended in some Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Candied Apple Oxide ink. I spritzed the Penny Black Verdure rubber stamp with some water and stamped the inked panel – I love the watermark/oxide ink effect that it created in the background.

I then added the Penny Black Swirling Wings butterfly die onto the panel and white heat embossed the Thank You sentiment onto black card stock. It is part of a sentiment from the Penny Black Kind Words stamp set (I did some stamp surgery).

Penny Black products used:
Penny Black 51-137 Swirling Wings Creative Die
Penny Black 40-475 Verdure Stamp
Penny Black 30-226 Kind Words stamp set


Stamps: Penny Black Verdure and Kind Words stamp sets

Card: Strathmore Bristol smooth card stock, Black Card stock

Ink: Versamark ink, Oxide Inks – Candied Apple, Fossilized Amber, Spice Marmalade

Other Supplies: Penny Black Swirling Wings Creative die, Cuttlebug, White embossing powder, Heat tool, Masking Tape, Liquid adhesive, Ink blending tool

I hope you are having a wonderful day.
Thanks for stopping by,






  1. I’ve only just started playing with the Oxides and after looking at your blending I still need a ton of practice lol. Your card is so beautiful Marion, love how you have added the leaf impression!

  2. Gorgeous card! How large is the finished card?

    • The finished card size is approximately 14cm by 14cm. Hope that helps.
