Hello! I have been busy crafting at my desk this weekend. Today’s card uses products from Penny Black’s Full Bloom release.

This bird image is from the Peaceful Time stamp set, and I stamped it in Copic friendly ink onto some Neenah solar white card stock and coloured it with Copics. I used a Spellbinders circle die to cut around the image. I did extend the branch in the image to reach the edges of the circle using a Copic multi-liner pen.

To create the impressed leaves in the background, I took two of the small leaf dies from the Peaceful Time Cut out creative die set, and repeatedly ran them through my die cutting machine, using a tan embossing mat to impress the images, rather than cut them out. This created a subtle, textured background to mount the focal image onto.

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. Super sweet card Marion! The added detail of the textured leaves in the background was the perfect choice!

  2. That’s so pretty! I was encouraged that you did such a pretty sky background with copics! I’m hopeless with distress inks.
