Hello everyone! This month, I’m back with more cards for Penny Black featuring stamps and dies from their newest BLISS 2017 catalog. I was so excited to play with the new stuff! The stamps are super cute and the dies so versatile.
Here is my first card showcasing the 30-414 Time to celebrate stamp set:
I first created the background using the 51-002 Leaves creative dies. I die cut the leaves and used the negative piece as a stencil that I sponged with green Distress inks over a white cardstock panel. I then stamped the sentiment in black ink. The sentiment is from the 30-351 Kool Kats stamp set. Next, I stamped the cat with black hybrid ink. I tried to think out of the box and only used the cat, not the balloons in his hand. Check the initial image:
I wanted the cat swinging on a liana like Tarzan, not hanging on a bunch of balloons. I colored the image with Copic markers and cut it out with scissors. I then added the string (hemp cord) and adhered the cat with foam pads to the panel and the panel to a top-folded card base.

Have a wonderful day and see you soon for more Penny Black spotlights…
