Winter arrangement

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the colour challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches using products from the new Penny Black release called Hello Winter!

I lightly applied spun sugar distress ink to create a focal point and then die cut the two stems from the Frosted Greens die set (51-710). I coloured them with different shades of distress ink and then lifted any green ink from the berries using water. I adhered the stems to my card base and added a container cut from pearlescent silver card (container is from the Hanging Planters die set, 51-501). Finally I stamped a sentiment from the When Snow Falls stamp set (30-881)

Golden pumpkins

Hello everyone!

First up today I’m playing along with this week’s Color Throwdown challenge which has a combo of brown, rust, gold and blue.

I’ve been wanting to ink up and colour the beautiful Autumn Vibes clings stamp by Penny Black (40-786) for a while now and I thought this week’s combo would be perfect for the stamp. I coloured the image with my Twinkling H2O paints, but didn’t like how my gold paint looked… So, I turned to some glitzy golden paper, stamped and cut out the pumpkins and did some paper piecing! the sentiment is from Penny Black’s Pumpkin Stack mini set (30-855).

Autumn Happiness Wreath

Hi everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the challenge at the Four Seasons challenge using Penny Black products.

I absolutely love the new Golden cling stamp (40-782) and was so excited to ink it up. I haven’t been doing much stamping and colouring recently and I really enjoyed using my beloved Twinkling H2O paints again! Can you see the shimmer in the second photo? So difficult to photograph!

To complete my card, I added a sentiment from the Autumn is Calling set (30-863) and also softly sponged some distress ink to the background to create a layered effect without adding too many physical layers.

Wintery Village Pond

Hi everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the sketch challenge at the Freshly Made Sketches challenge using Penny Black dies.

Following the sketch, I cut the Geometric Circles background die (51-644) and snipped it in half so I could create a longer background panel – I knew I could hide the gap with the other layers. Next I used a die from the Antique Frame set (51-397) to cut some navy card and adhered it on top of the background die – once again I had o cut this in half so I could extend it across the width of my card base. I then adhered a purple circle die cut on top, hiding the gap in the navy strip. I cut the village and pond from the winter village set (51-396) and adhered them to the circle. I added a star from the Christmas Wonderland set (51-562), cut from glitter card (which I also used for the pond!).

Fall Mason Jars

Hi again everyone!

Next up today I’m playing along with this week’s Color Throwdown challenge which has a fabulous  autumnal combo of orange, kraft and brown.

To start, I adhered a frame from Penny Black’s Framed die set (51-622) and then cut images from the wonderful Autumn Decor set (51-653) which I coloured with distress inks and distress oxides. I decided I wanted to have larger stem as a focal point so I added an image from the Garden Greens set (51-652).  Finally I added a sentiment from the Autumn is Calling set (30-863).

Beyond Grateful

Hi again everyone!

Next up today I’m playing along with this week’s Color Throwdown challenge  which has a fabulous  combo of turquoise, kraft, brown and white and I’m using the sketch from the CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge.

I created three panels for each of the colours using my distress oxide inks and cut them with Penny Black’s Leaf Patter background die (51-432) I applied a piece of thin card to the pack of the turquoise panel and inlaid leaves from the kraft and brown panels. I wanted to add another colour and so I used the die a fourth time to cut some shimmery cream card and inlaid the smallest leaves into the turquoise panel. Unfortunately, you can’t see the slight shimmer in my photos. I cut the panel in the shape from the sketch challenged and adhered it to my card base.  Finally I added a sentiment from Penny Black’s Ever Thanks set (30-813).
