Hello friends!! All week Penny Black has been tempting and teasing you with all the wonderful stamps that you will be able to purchase through a special email promotion and now the day has finally arrived... YAY!! If you signed up for the Penny Black club then you received a special email in your inbox today and you get to go shopping and save, save, SAVE!! To celebrate this week of special savings the Penny Black Stamp Squad is having a blog hop to showcase many of the stamps available. You should have gotten to my blog from the lovely and talent Lin's blog. I have two cards to share with you today.
First up is a card that I made using the Penny Black cling stamp "Twinkling" (40-083) and a sentiment from the PB clear set "joyous" (30-037). The inspiration for this card comes from the Eric Carle book "Dream Snow". Dream Snow is a Christmas tale about a farmer and his little flock of animals. At the end of the story the farmer decorates a small tree for the animals with all kinds of sparkly, twinkling ornaments. For my "ornaments" I used four different Stickles (Christmas Red, Champagne, Holly and Platinum) and some clear rhinestones. To give it the a slightly rustic look I roughed up the edges of the kraft cardstock piece. I die cut the tag from patterned paper using the small tag die from the Penny Black Tag It set, stamped it with the sentiment and then roughed up the edges of the tag, as well. A bit of ribbon was added to the tag using some brown hemp twine.
For my second card I decided to pull out my Copic markers and do some coloring. The image I used is the cling "dashing through snow" (40-159) and colored it with the following Copics: B32, B34, B37, R24, R27, R29, R39, R89, Yll, Y13, Y15, YG21, YG25, YG23, G09, G05, G12, YG63, YG67, Ell, E15, E13, E21, E53, E50, E51, W1 & W2. Once I was done coloring I added some subtle sparkle with a silver Wink of Stella brush tip marker and the edges were inked with Iced Spruce and Evergreen Bough distress inks. The sentiment is from the clear set "Christmas Fashion".
Thanks for stopping by... your next stop is super talented Penny!
