New Penny Black Christmas Releases
Hello! I know it has been a little while since I posted here – almost two months ago. It’s not because I haven’t been crafting, it is just that my life has been super busy. However the good news is that I am now on my summer holiday break, and I have just finished the hardest and most challenging year of my teaching career.
Penny Black have been very busy releasing some new Christmas awesomeness in two releases – Season of Hope and Winter Wishes. Due to COVID, things took a little longer to reach me, but you will be pleased to now that I have a lot lined up to show you this coming week.
My first project isn’t a card, but rather a Christmas decor piece using the Mirthful and Winter Greens creative dies. I love both of these dies as they are slightly bigger than usual.
The Joy is popped up on some foam squares, but the leaves are adhered to the base, which is a whole piece of Neenah solar white card stock. The ‘To the World’ sentiment is from an older Christmas set called Holiday Snippets – I reach for this set every year and white heat embossed it onto black card stock.
I added some pearl drops to the berries to add some dimension. I simply love how it turned out!
Next up is a sweet little winter scene using some cute critters from the Scarved Sweeties set. This one is pretty straight forward – stamped and coloured with Copics and then I added some white gel pen detail for the snow. The trees in the background are from the Snowfield Friends stamp set. I really love creating scenes.

So happy to hear that you are on your well earned break, I can’t even begin to imagine how difficult this year has been for you! I Love the CAS Christmas Decor, and yes I reach for the ‘snippets’ sets all of the time too and those two sweet bears on the bench look so very relaxed… we could all use a little of that lol.
