You’ve Got A Friend – Penny Black Full Bloom Inspiration #1

Posted by on May 20, 2019 in Animals, Clean and Simple, Copic markers, Distress Oxide Inks, Friendship cards, Penny Black, Stamping | 2 comments

Hello friends! Today I have a card to share (and the first of a few) showcasing some of the new stamps and dies from Penny Black’s latest release called Full Bloom.

For today’s card I couldn’t go past these adorable sea dogs just hanging out in a boat. Too cute! The stamp is called Friendship and the coordinating die is called Friendship cut out (and in this case I only used the sun from the die set).

I stamped the image onto my card panel and coloured it with Copic markers. I then created a mask, and made by own sunny background rays using some thin washi tape. I sponged on some Squeezed Lemonade and Fossilized Amber Distress oxide ink. I extended the waves under the boat and created another hand cut mask and sponged on some Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers Distress oxide ink. I popped up the sun with some mounting tape. The sentiment is from the same Friendship set.

To view and or purchase any of the new products from the Full Bloom release, head to the Penny Black online store.

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. What a fabulous card Marion, love all the wonderful details that you have added to your sweet little scene!
