penny black blog take over...
Hello friends!! This week the Penny Black Stamp Squad is taking over the Penny Black blog and sharing some fun projects to take you into the new year! Today I have taken over the Penny Black blog and I'm sharing a card that I made using Penny Black's fabulous stickers and a technique that is very similar to paper piecing. You can find the post here. Here on my blog I'm sharing a bonus card I made. I also explain how I made the cards. Here is my bonus card:
To make each card I started by picking out which stickers I wanted to use. I chose to use stickers from the Scented Garden and Fresh Fields. I adhered the stickers (two of each design) to some thin cardstock (printer paper would work, as well) and then proceeded to trim out portions of each sticker. Adhering the stickers to thin cardstock gives them a bit more support and makes them easier to trim out. Once I had trimmed out everything I adhered each piece using foam dimensionals. I finished off this card by stamping the Penny Black background image Retro Pattern (40-086) on red cardstock using red ink, adhered it to a cream cardstock base and then added my beefed up sticker to the center. Some twine tied in a bow finished things off. I included a photo to show the dimension that is achieved by layering sticker images in this way.
Thanks for stopping by...
