Penny Black Simplicity Sister Time
It is snowing as I write this post. I love the snow! especially when I can stay warm and safe inside! I pray that you are warm and safe and as it gets closer and closer to Christmas your hearts are filled with peace and joy!
Here are two more SIMPLE Christmas cards I made to show off some sweet products by Penny Black.
I began by stamping this cutie pie on to a panel - cut to 5.5 x 3.5". I masked the image before adding my "floor" and the polka dot/snowflake background. I created my own stencil for the snowflakes using the snowflake dies in "Frosty's Snow". Then I removed the mask and colored my image using Prisma Pencils shaded with Gamsol. The top panel is attached to my A2 card base with foam tape and a splash of Wink of Stella to finish off the gift bow. A sweet and totally huggable card - if I may say so myself : )
My next card was even easier. I started in the same way - stamping my image, masking it,sponging a stenciled background then coloring the image with Prisma Pencils shaded with Gamsol : ) This time I stamped the "merry" directly on to the card face but rather than stamping the word Christmas I decided to add dimension by gluing a die cut instead. : ) One last grab for my Wink of Stella to highlight the hat and scarf and this little owl was ready to mail!
Well that is it for me today. I appreciate you stopping by and leaving a comment. I continue to be amazed! that so many of you actually still take the time to drop me a line even though I have been shamefully absent from Blogland! You are THE BEST! and I know I will be back to my old blogging self soon.
