Penny Black

Sending you love

Happy Sunday everyone.

Kia here with you today to share this card I did using a Penny Black Stamp called Effulgent. The word Effulgent means “brilliant, shining brightly, radiant”, so I thought I would use colors that are brilliant and radiant to me.

This stamp is a Penny Black Brushstroke stamp, meaning the image is carved so the flower is a full image and can be coloured with markers before stamping. A stamp positioner is a must, in my humble opinion, for this type of stamping. I used my Misti to do this card.

On the backside of Ranger Distress watercolour paper I first stamped the image coming from the left top corner downwards. I used Tim Holtz Distress Markers to do my colouring, and started with Mustard Seed. I coloured all the areas with the flowers and spritzed lightly, just once, before stamping. I then went in with my paint brush to smooth the stamped impression. I then coloured with Ripe Persimmon, doing the same thing as I did with the Mustard Seed. And finally I finished the flower portions with Festive Berries, which I added to the tips and around some of the edges. Then on to the branches I used Gathered Twigs and Forest Moss.

I then positioned my stamp to have flowers coming from the top of the card, and also added a few coming in from the left of the card, doing these the same way I did the others. Once I finished this panel, I did a smaller panel for the inside of my card.

Again, colouring the stamp and spritzing lightly before stamping. I did not add the festive berries to this image, preferring to have the yellow and orange only. Once stamped, I again went over the image with my damp paint brush to smooth the paint out.

To complete my card I stamped my sentiment on the front panel using Ranger Archival Sepia ink and framed the panel in a dark brown cardstock and using a medium orange colour for my base. I die cut the smile sentiment from copper glitter paper to finish the inside of my card.

I hope you have enjoyed this card and would like to thank you for visiting the Scap N Stamp blog today.


So Glad We’re Friends with Penny Black Stamps

Good Morning and Happy Sunday!!  Laurie here to share a friendship card using products from Penny Black! I must admit that I don’t own a lot of PB product but intend to remedy that! I think Penny Black is well known for their gorgeous floral cling stamps but they have amazing and super cute people and critter images, too!!

I started by inking up a background panel using the Cloud Stencil and the Drifts and Hills stencil, both from My Favourite Things.  I used good ‘ol regular Distress Inks in Mowed Lawn and Tumbled Glass.

I stamped, coloured and fussy cut (even between the spokes on the tires!!!) one of the cute images from the Let’s Play Stamp Set.  I really wanted the background to show through the different areas of the bicycle, that’s why I did so much cutting!!

I popped the little girl up with foam adhesive and tried to make it look like she was on her way down the hill!  I stamped a sentiment from the Penny Black Choose Happy Stamp Set directly onto the panel using Versafine Nocturne Ink and used a piece of craft foam to adhere the panel to the card base.

To add some shine, I used Nuvo Crystal Glaze on the balloons and basket and Glossy Accents on some of the smaller areas of the bicycle.  I find the Nuvo Glaze easier to use in larger areas and Glossy Accents on tinier areas. I also decided to add a few Nuvo Crystal Cloud Circles.

And that’s my project for today!! Please check out the huge array of Penny Black products in the SNS Shop!!

Have a great week!!
