Penny Black always has the most fabulous stamps and this past year many have been flowers that are just so so pretty. Today I’ve chosen one of her collection to share with you in several different ways.
I’ll be sharing four cards today all with the focal point from Penny Black‘s Dreamy stamp. It’s always amazing how you can take one stamp and change it up in so many ways. I’ve used Strathmore Water Color paper for the primary mat of all four cards. The base and other mats are Spellbinders Celebra’tions Solids. There are numerous Tim Holtz Distress inks involved including three of the brand new colors, Twisted Citron, Abandoned Coral and Fossilized Amber.
This first card uses WOW embossing powder in Persian Indigo to create this luscious purple. I choose a Hero Arts sentiment for the inside so I could make this into a Sympathy card. The butterfly is from JustRite Stampers Floral Baskets clear stamps. This is an A2 size card.
The second card is a little larger 5″ x 6″ and incorporates Tim Holtz Distress inks in Twisted Citron, Spun Sugar, and Squeezed Lemonade. I’ve used another JustRite Stampers stamp collection called Black Eyed Susan for the sentiment and those darling bumble bees. To bring the mats together I’ve used the Spellbinders Celebra’tions Linen Thread in cream and green.
I’m so happy with the results of this Dreamy flower. I used a green embossing powder for the stems and the lower part of the flower. For the top of the flower I used a clear powder and then tipped the ends with Stickles. The inside sentiment on this card was stamped with a Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Handwritten Thoughts stamp.
This last card will be made on camera with you to share how I used the Tim Holtz Distress inks to color the mats, the stamping and sentiment selection. I hope you’ll come join me so I can share with you. The sentiment on the inside is another from the JustRite Stampers Black Eyed Susan. If you’re someone who likes to do batches of cards I think this Penny Black Dreamy stamp is the perfect choice, you could make any type of card necessary or leave the insides blank so they’d fit whenever and whatever need arose.
So I’ll be waiting on the video to share with you. I’ll list all the supplies I’ve used today directly below the video.
Thanks and Happy Craftin’!
