Penny Black Rise and Shine


For this card  I used a gorgeous Penny Black cling stamp called "rain or shine" which is an all time favourite of mine. I decided to leave the image uncoloured as the paper and embellishments are quite fussy. As it is mid month for the Penny Black and More challenge which is "Birthdays" this is my inspirational make. A nice easy challenge for everyone and there are some fabulous prizes up for grabs. Click the link above to take you to the blog to check out all the rules and the details of the prizes.

I used:-
Rubber Stamp - Penny Black "Rain or Shine" No 40-024
White card - Craftwork cards
Papers - Do crafts
Flowers and leaves dies -  Crealies
Butterfly die - Spellbinders
Mini wooden stamp sentiment - Stamp Tapestry
Organza ribbon and Stick on pearls - The Handcrafted card company

Spring is in the air


Another month and another challenge at Penny Black and More. The theme for April is Birthdays. A nice and easy challenge and the prize sponsors this month are All Occasion dies, PPR papercrafts, Stamp Addicts and Marianne Designs.

On my card I used an old cute girly PB stamp called  Daydream No: 4077K. The stamp (released in 2010) is still one of my favourites. I added die cuts, lace,pearls and a sentiment to finish off my card.

Pink floral


The theme for the Penny Black and More challenge for March is Blossoms and Bows and this is my DT card. I used my new Penny Black slapstick stamp called Botanical Notes. I decided to water colour the image so I could give the flowers and leaves plenty of light and shade areas. I never seem to be able to do that with my Promarkers. I decided not to overdress my card and added minimal embellishments to finish it off.
If you would like to enter the PB challenge pop over to the blog using the link above and check out the details. There are several prizes up for grabs from Sponsors Penny Black, All occasion dies, Crafty ribbons, Sizzix and Marianne designs

Floral card


I bought a pack of lovely shaped cards at Ally Pally last year and this is the first card I have made using one of them. I fell in love with these pretty floral papers with their lovely soft pastel colours and decided they would be perfect for this shaped card. I was so pleased when it was finished as I achieved  this lovely floral garden scene.
I have entered it into the challenges listed below.


Spring


My bright and cheerful card with thoughts of Spring in mind. The papers are by Craftwork cards and I love the mixture of cream, turquoise and shades of red and pink together. I decoupaged the bicycle to give it some depth and added flowers to the centre of the wheels too. The flower, leaves and butterfly dies are Crealies. The little banner finished off the Spring theme.

I have entered it into the challenges listed below.

I had to enter the "Who is Tracy" challenge first as the Mood Board inspired the spring theme for my card.

Flower Basket


I used my favourite colours of Pink and Purple with a touch of Turquoise and two Penny Black stamped images ( Dance, Sing, Love 2695J and A Gift of Flowers 4076k ).  I found some very old purple flowers in my stash and thought it a good idea to use some of them. I used flower trim, diamontes, mini pearls and pearl buttons to finish of my card.
A reminder too that it is half way through the Anything goes challenge at Penny Black and More so there is still plenty of time to enter. Pop over to the blog for all the details and the list of prizes for this month.

Penny Black Sentiment card


Another Penny Black and More challenge and this month the theme is Anything goes but NO DIGIS .  I have used "Garden of Life" (No 4263F) sentiment as the focal point on my card. I don't normally use yellow but I had a free paper pad with this gorgeous floral paper. It helped link the white sentiment with the white flowers on the paper. I added pretty sparkly trim and a strip of pom poms along the bottom. Flowers and a few diamontes finished it off.

Lilac Flowers


The challenge at Penny Black and More for the month of January is Stencils, Masks and Embossing folders and it is time for mid month inspiration.
I used a dotted embossed card for the background layer and  the lovely deep embossed "Tied together" embossing folder to make the foremost layer. This is my most favourite embossing folder as it is so versatile and looks really pretty with the addition of pearls. I also used the lovely daisy style flower stamp from a Penny Black set called Flower Festival which I water coloured. A few pearls, bows and ruffled ribbon finished it off.
