Feathered Friends

I love bird stamps. This bird comes from the new Penny Black stamp set called Feathered Friends. There are actually two separate bird stamps in this set and they can be used together or on their own, as I've done here.

I coloured the image with my Copics. I die cut the panel with Semi-Circle Stackers die, left the die in place and sponged some Distress Oxide ink in Frayed Burlap on the panel. The sentiment I used is from the sentiment set Feeling of Christmas. I splattered the panel with some white acrylic paint before adhering it onto a piece of dark brown cardstock and then onto my card base

I made these two Christmas cards with a new die set by Penny Black called Antlers from their latest release, Winter Collection.

For the first card, I die cut the deer out of glittery golden cardstock. I created the background by partially embossing my cardstock with a new embossing folder called Filigree. I then sponged some blue Distress Oxide to the upper part of the cardstock and splattered it with some gold ink. I heat embossed a sentiment from Jolly Snippets sentiment set on a strip of dark brown cardstock and adhered it in place. I then adhered the deer and embellished the card with some white half pearls.

For the second card, I stamped and masked the birch trees from the new stamp set Scenic Layers, the little bush is from the same stamp set. I then masked the rectangle and sponged some Distress Oxide inks to create the background. I splattered the background with some water and with some white acrylic paint. I very slightly coloured the birch trees with my Copics. I die cut the deer out of kraft coloured cardstock and sponged them lightly with some brown Distress Oxide ink. The snow bank is die cut with Rolling Hills die and the sentiment is from the All Is Bright stamp set.

Chilly Days

How adorable is this couple!? These snowmen are a new stamp by Penny Black from their latest release Winter Collection and it's called Chilly Days.

I coloured the image with my Copics adding a bit of white gel pen here and there. I then die cut the edge using a die from the set Spirited. Behind the die cut edge I placed a piece of cardstock sponged with Distress Oxide inks in Faded Jeans and Uncharted Mariner and splattered with water. My sentiment comes from the Christmas Sentiments set. I also used some Stick & Shine snowflakes from the Extraordinary sheet and foiled them with pink foil from the Classic Colors Multipack foil pack. Lastly, I added tiny white halfpearls to the snowflakes on the die cut edge.

Berry Basket

I made this card with some yummy new goodies from the latest release called Winter Collection 2023 by Penny Black. This cute tree with the basket is a new die and it's called Berry Basket.

I die cut the tree, the basket and the berries (or ornaments, depending on how you want to see them) and coloured them with my Copics (please note, the tree is in real life blueish green but for some reason it looks totally blue in the photo. Go figure.) I also added a bit of Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen to the berries/ornaments. I die cut the panel with Stitches of Love die, left the die in place and sponged Distress Oxide inks in Saltwater Taffy, Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries on the panel. The sentiment is from the Sweet Sledder stamp set. Before matting the panel onto some red cardstock, I splattered it with some white watered down acrylic paint. The cardstock in the background is embossed with the gorgeous new embossing folder called Filigree. After adhering everything in place (I adhered the panel onto a piece of craft foam before adhering it to the background), I embellished the card with a little bow of twine and some white half-pearls.

I made this one-layer Christmas card with a Penny Black stamp called Beaming. I stamped the image on the panel and coloured it with my Copics, adding a bit of white gel pen here and there and some Stickles glitter glue to the Christmas lights. For the background, I used a stencil from the Penny Black stencil set Background Basics and sponged some Distress Oxide inks on the panel. I also used the gorgeous Penny Black Stick & Shine snowflakes from the set Extraordinary with some green foil from the foil set Classic Colours Multipack. Before splattering some white acrylic paint dilluted with water on the panel, I stamped a sentiment from the Penny Black sentiment set Season to Believe on the panel.
