This week we decided to create our own criteria for a challenge. We decided to make cards using Penny Black stamps we’d been given for Christmas and not yet used. We’ve included thank-you and birthday cards so let’s get started.
This is my note card sized thank-you card with a cute hedgehog from my new Penny Black set Wonderful. I’ve used my Lil’ Inkers die Silly Stitched to outline my circle and scraps of paper from Stampin’ Up that were lying around my workspace. Using an aqua painter I colored this image with SU inks: Pink Pirouette, Sahara Sand, Real Red, & a bit of Smokey Slate. The sentiment is from SU’s Vertical Greetings.
Next is Karen’s birthday card using her new Penny Black stamp from U R the Gift. It’s also colored with an aqua painter using SU inks: Wisteria Wonder, Real Red, Pink Pirouette, & just a touch of Early Expresso. The sentiment is from Simon Says’ Birthday Celebrations.
Finally we have another Thank-You card this time from Robyn. The image is from Penny Black’s Smile All Day collection. Once again colored with an aqua painter with inks not known. Her paper is from a Recollections pad called Holiday Lodge.
We hope you will have time to do some card making soon and perhaps something we’ve shared will inspire you. Thanks for stopping by.
