Penny Black Any Occasion Card

Here is a card I made using a Penny Black Stamp and Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens.  I haven't decided the occasion for the card yet, so the final sentiment hasn't been added.


To make the card, I used the following:
Versafine Black Onyx Ink
Zing Clear Embossing Powder
Penny Black - Gentle Day Stamp
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens
Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles

To make the card, I stamped the image with Versafine Black Onyx Ink, then added the clear embossing powder and heat set.  The image was then colored with the Zig Clean Color pens.  In this case, I just used the pens and blended the colors directly - no water was added.  The image was cut with the Stitched Rectangle die, and added to the blue background (also cut with a larger Stitched Rectangle die).  This was then added to the card base to complete the card.

Glittery Mothers Day Card

The picture doesn't show how glittery this card actually is!  This card uses an image stamped using the essential glue pad, and glitter.  Its a technique I've tried before, but this is the first time I got it to work.  I think in the past I wasn't patient enough, and didn't let the glue get to the tacky point.


For this card I used the following:

  • Greenhouse Society Rose Stamp
  • Glitter Ritz - Java Bean, Sea Green, Pink
  • Essential Glue Pad
  • Close To My Heart - Just to Say Stamp Set
  • Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles

To make the card, I stamped the image using the Essential Glue Pad.  I waited until the glue was tacky, and then added the glitter to the image, using Java Bean for the stem, Sea Green on the leaves and Pink for the rose.  The image was cut with the Stitched Rectangle die, and ribbon was added.  This was then added to the card base and the sentiment added to complete the card.

Another Easter Card with Elizabeth Craft Designs

Here is another late Easter Card.

I used the following to make the card:

  • Elizabeth Craft Designs - Shimmer Sheets
  • Elizabeth Craft Designs - Outdoor Edges die #914
  • Elizabeth Craft Designs - Easter Eggs die #1148
  • Elizabeth Craft Designs - Glitter Dots
  • Zig Clean Color - #20, #202, #80, #81, #51
  • Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles
  • Lawn Fawn - Eggstra Special Easter stamp set
To make the card, I randomly colored the Zig Clean Color markers on a piece of Bristol paper.  I used a bit of water to blend the colors together.  From this I cut the detailed portions of the eggs.  I then cut the solid portions for the eggs using Shimmer Sheets.  The details portions of the eggs were added to the shimmer sheet eggs.  Glitter dots were added to the eggs.  The grass was cut from a sheet of Green Shimmer Sheets, using the Outdoor Edges die.  The eggs and grass were added to background piece of My Favorite Things Water color wash paper.  The entire piece was then cut using the stitched Rectangle die and added to the card base.  The sentiment was added to complete the card.
