PBSC - March

 


It's time for the March challenge at Penny Black Saturday Challenge. The theme for this month is Anything Goes with the optional theme of Easter.


I chose the Anything Goes theme and created this birthday card with some new stamps from Penny Black. These cute bunnies are from the new stamp set Cuteness and they are so adorable. I stamped them onto my panel, masked them and did a bit of ink blending using a grid stencil from the Penny Black stencil set Background Basics and some Distress Oxide inks. After removing the masks, I coloured the images with my Copics adding touches of white gel pen here and there. The sentiment I used is from the sentiment set Delightful Day. Before adding some enamel dots, I matted the panel onto a piece of black cardstock and adhered it onto my card base.

Guest Designing at CAS on Friday

I have the pleasure of being the Guest Designer for the current challenge at CAS on Friday where the theme is Hello. Thank you so much for having me, ladies!


I went super CAS with my card and kept the elements at a minimum. I created the background with a stencil from the Penny Black stencil set Background Basics and did a bit of ink blending with Distress Oxide inks in Salvaged Patina and Uncharted Mariner before splattering some white watercolour paint onto the circle. I used an older Winnie and Walter die for the word, die cutting it from dark grey cardstock. The flower is die cut with a die from Simply Graphic. I adhered the die cuts in their places and matted the panel onto a piece of dark grey cardstock before embellishing the card with some black gems.


Please be sure to pop by the CAS on Friday blog to see the wonderful inspiration provided by the Design Team and don't forget to join in the challenge!

Simply Spring

I created this simple card with a gorgeous Altenew stamp called Simply Spring. I coloured the image with my Copics and did the background using a stencil from the Penny Black stencil set Background Basics. I ink blended some Distress Oxide inks in Saltwater Taffy and Brushed Corduroy through the stencil before stamping my sentiment on the panel (the sentiment says 'Heartfelt congratulations' in Finnish). Lastly, I embellished the card with some gems.

PBSC - February



It's February and a new challenge has begun at Penny Black Saturday Challenge. The theme is Anything Goes with the optional theme for February being Wings.


I chose the optional theme and used this sweet lil' hedgie flying his plane. The stamp is from the Penny Black stamp set Love Everywhere. I coloured the image with my Copics adding some accents with a white gel pen before die cutting the image with the matching die, Love Everywhere Cut Out. For the background, I used a circle stencil from the stencil set Background Basics and did some ink blending with Distress Oxide inks in Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet. The sentiment comes from the stamp set In the Air and the little hearts are die cut with Hearts Galore die. I matted my panel onto some pink cardstock before I attached everything in their places.


Hope you can join us at PBSC this month!

Painted Daisies

I loved colouring this gorgeous stamp by Pinkfresh Studio called Painted Daisies. Such a lovely stamp with lots to colour!


I did the colouring with my Copics before die cutting the image with the matching die. I wanted the flowers to be the main point of interest so I didn't add much else to the card. Just a dark blue background die cut with Hexagon Tiles Cover Plate and a sentiment heat embossed in white (the sentiment says 'On your birthday').

Flowers

After all the Christmas cards, it's lovely to make floral cards. Here's one I made with You're the Best stamp set by Pinkfresh Studio.


I coloured the flowers with my Copics and die cut them with the matching dies. I created the background by very lightly sponging some Distress Oxide ink in Antique Linen to my card panel and splattering it with some gold ink. I also used a die by Penny Black called Soaring to create the blue swirly loops. After I had adhered it in its place, I stamped my sentiment and adhered the flowers with some foam adhesives.

PBSC January




It's the first month of a brand new year and time for a new challenge at Penny Black Saturday Challenge. The theme is, as always, Anything Goes with the optional theme this time being Something New.


I decided to go with the optional theme and my 'something new' is a new stamp. This gorgeous birch stamp is from the new stamp set by Penny Black called Scenic Layers. Before stamping the trees, I took some masking paper, tore it to create a snow bank and placed it on the bottom edge of my panel. I then stamped the trees in black ink and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. I stamped the trees again on a piece of masking paper, fussy cut the tree trunks and placed them in place. I then used a stencil from the Background Basics stencil set and sponged some Distress Oxide inks in Victorian Velvet, Antique Linen and Mermaid Lagoon on the panel. After removing the masking paper from the trees and the snow bank, I stamped a sentiment from the sentiment set When Snow Falls in its place. I then splattered the panel first with some water and then with white acrylic paint to create the snow. Lastly, I matted the panel onto some light blue cardstock.
