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').

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.

Feathered Friends #2

Here's another card I made with the new Penny Black stamp set called Feathered Friends (you can see the first one by clicking here).

I coloured the bird with my Copics again and stamped a sentiment from the sentiment set When Snow Falls. I then masked the stamped image and sponged some Distress Oxide inks in Broken China and Uncharted Mariner on the panel. I also splattered the panel with some white acrylic paint to create the falling snow. I die cut the frame twice using  Stitched Loops die, adhered the frames together and adhered them to my panel. Lastly, I adhered the panel with the frame onto my card base.
