Penny Black | Bliss 2017 Collection | Spotlight 4

Hello everyone! This month, I’m back with more cards for Penny Black featuring stamps and dies from their newest BLISS 2017 catalog. The cat stamps are so adorable and versatile! 

Here is my last project for this spotlight week. Today, I’m showcasing the 30-407 Cat Days stamp set:

For my card, I used the cat with the sheep stamp. I colored the image and cut it out with scissors. I then sponged green inks over a circle die-cut using a blending tool, splattered it with water and cut it in half to create a grassy hill. I sponged the front of a top-folded white card base with blue ink and adhered the grassy hill as well as the cat and the sheep with foam pads to the background. I stamped the "You bring me joy" sentiment in black ink. The sentiment is from the 30-358 Happy Snippets stamp set. To finish off my card, I rounded the corners and created a self-made black speech bubble with the word "happy" that I heat embossed on black cardstock using white embossing powder. The sentiment is from the 30-283 Snippets stamp set. 

The newest images are super cute! I love that there are many animals in this set. They can be used as the 12 signs of the Zodiac but also for other occasions than birthdays. Check the images bellow:

That’s all for me today! I hope you’ve enjoyed these Penny Black spotlights. Thanks so much for visiting my blog.
