Penny Black | Bliss 2017 Collection | Spotlight 2

Hello everyone! This month, I’m back with more cards for Penny Black featuring stamps and dies from their newest BLISS 2017 catalog. The word dies in this collection are FA-BU-LOUS!!!

Here is my second spotlight and I’m showcasing the 51-338 Birthday creative die:

I went for a clean and simple design using vibrant shades. I chose a white-yellow-blue color combination. I first sponged yellow Distress ink in the center of a top-folded card base. I then stamped the dog and the bees from the newest 30-414 Time to celebrate stamp set with black hybrid ink. I colored them with Copic markers and cut them out with scissors. Next, I die cut the 51-338 Birthday creative die from white cardstock. I lightly sponged the bottom of the die-cut with blue Distress ink and a blending tool. I then masked the "Birthday" word with Post-it tape and lightly sponged the bottom of the "Happy" in the same way. To finish off my card, I adhered all elements to the card front using foam pads for more dimension. Check the bees in the stamp set and the word die: 


They hold a gift but I cut it off and put the bees on each side of the word "Happy". Now it looks like they hold a Happy Birthday banner! So cute! These little characters are so versatile and that’s what I like so much in the Penny Black sets. 

For more inspiration, don’t forget to check the Penny Black blog and the Penny Black Simplicity blog.

Have a wonderful day and see you later this week for more Penny Black spotlights…
