The Penny Black Stamp Squad is celebrating the Fan Favorites event with a blog hop!! Greta, Lin, Penny, Rosemary and I are glad you are hopping with us!
Hope you spy your personal favorites along the way. I am the first stop after the Penny Black blog, so you are in the right place at the right time.
I made my first card using the woodblock stamp Give Us a Kiss. I love all of Penny Black's stamps, but the cute ones are especially fun to work with. I stamped the bear and bird in black and then clear embossed. Colored the image with Copics. I then ran my cardstock through my Big Shot with a mini embossing folder of snowflakes. I couldn't resist adding some sparkle with glitter glue. An added bonus: this is a one-layer card, easy to mail with no extra postage necessary.
I was having so much fun with these fan favorite stamps, I had to make a second card. I used two cling stamps: Harmony for the background and then the Amaryllis image. I stamped the background with VersaMark and then heat embossed with white. I rubbed distress ink over the white embossed image. I colored the flower and pot with Copics, and then fussy cut the image. I created the layers with white and solid colored card stock as well as a piece of the embossed background. I added glossy accents to the pot and a gem to the center of the flower.Hope you've had a fun week of choosing and purchasing fan favorite stamps! If you haven't decided yet, I hope the cards you see today will help you make up your mind!
