merry, merry...

Hello friends!!  Did you see??? Penny Black is going to be having a big sale for club members that starts this Friday and runs through the 15th.  In order to get in on all the savings you need to be a club member,


Just head over to the Penny Black website and click on the "Join the Club" link and sign up before Friday, November 8th.  On Friday a special email will be delivered to your inbox so you can start shopping!  To get your creativity flowing I'm sharing a card that I made using a few of the stamps that will be on sale.  Going to pop this into the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge clean & simple.

For my card I used the Penny Black clear sets Joyous (30-037) and Marzipan (30-126).  I also used the background cling stamp Retro Pattern (40-086), but because I used watermark ink for a tone on tone look you really can't see it.   I used a red and green Gelato to color the image and then sprayed the stamp before stamping it on my cardstock.  The sentiment was stamped and punched out.  I rounded two corners and then added the little button/twine embellishment in one corner. 

Thanks for stopping by... now go join the club!!!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Penny Black red and green; Stamps:  Penny Black; Ink:  Tuxedo Black; Gelatos:  Metallic green and red
