Timeless – Penny Black Release Blog Hop and Giveaway

It’s a “Party with Penny!”  You’re invited to join in the fun as Penny Black celebrates the release of their newest collection of stamps and dies, Timeless

You should have arrived here from Suzie Lessard’s blog.   If you want to start the hop from the beginning, you can go to the Penny Black blog for a complete list of all of the blog hop participants.  

Well to get this party started, I have two cards to share with you today. The first card uses this A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E Penny Black bear from the set called Balloon Ride. The sentiment is from the Butterfly Garden stamp set.

I coloured the images with Copic markers and fussy cut them out. For the background clouds, I hand cut a cloud mask from masking paper and sponged on the clouds with some blue ink. I then re-stamped the bear and balloon image on top of the clouds and adhered the fussy cut bear and balloons over the top.

My next card uses a mixture of two stamp and their coordinating dies – Butterfly Garden and Butterfly Garden Cut Out and Special Friends and Special Friends Cut Out. The sentiment is from the Flower Teddy stamp set.

The butterfly and banner were coloured with Copic markers and die cut using the coordinating dies. The foliage behind the butterfly was stamped in coloured ink, and I added some detail and shading with matching Prismacolor pencils. After a lot of image shuffling (and I mean a lot…), I decided on this layout and I love it. The sentiment was white heat embossed over the top.

And it wouldn’t be a party without a giveaway; right?  Penny Black is giving away a $50 shopping spree to the Penny Black online store to FIVE lucky winners.  To enter, leave a comment on any blog hop post (this one included). The giveaway closes on Sunday, March 10 at 11:59 PM PST and winners will be announced on the Penny Black blog on March 18.
