Me again! Two posts in 2 days! What is happening to me? Well these posts are the fruit of a very productive crafty weekend. I’ve had such fun in the studio of late. These adorable critters from Penny Black are from the Refreshing release and I just couldn’t stop at one tag – so made 4!

All these cute critters are from the Critter Delights stamp set.

I used the Tagged creative metal die set and die cut 4 tags. I then stamped each image onto a tag with Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured them with Copic markers. (Once coloured, I like to re-stamp over the image again in VersaFine Onyx black ink as it makes everything pop!).

I die cut the Silver Linings cloud dies out of some Post-It notes and used these as a stencil to create the clouds in the backgrounds. I kept on moving it around and changing up the angles. I used Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink for the clouds.

The sentiments are all from the Carefree Wishes stamp set from a previous release.

Thanks for sticking with me through this photo heavy post. I had a lot of fun creating these tags and know that they will come in very handy for my kid’s friends birthdays.

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

If you have any questions, just email me.

Until next time,
