PB Mimi


I used one of my favourite Mimi stamps by Penny Black called " Flowers for Mimi". She is so pretty and I love the sweet little birds. It took me one heck of a time to cut her and the intricate flowers out and I did accidentally snip off one of the birds. I mounted her on foam pads and managed to glue the bird back in place. I don't think anyone will notice.
The challenge at Penny Black and More this month is for a stamped image and any die cut to be used on your entry. As usual there are several great prizes up for grabs and the chance to be a guest designer. Pop over to the blog using the link above to get all the details.
I have entered my card into the challenges listed below.

Little Angel


A little bit late for this after Christmas but I was pleased how it turned out so had to show it to you. The silver and turquoise worked so well together. I did a silver mat behind my designer paper, image and sentiment . Die cut snowflakes were added at random around the card. I did minimal colouring on my image before adding it to my card. Ribbon, pearls, a double bow and lots of glitter finished it off to my liking.
Reminding you that the Penny Black and More girly challenge is still in play for the month of January. You still have plenty of time to enter. Pop over to the blog to check the rules and to find out the great prizes up for grabs.

A day for Daisies


Happy New year to all my friends, followers and Penny Black DT

Just before Christmas I recieved a lovely package from Brenda who runs the Penny Black and More blog like clockwork. I was thrilled to recieve a gorgeous PB stamp, ribbons and a PB designer pad of beautiful papers.
When I spotted this gorgeous turquoise lacy paper in the pad I new I would use it on my first card for the New Year. I had bought some new Nestabillity flower dies too and was itching to use those. I cut all the flowers in white and layered some of them. I added some Crealies leaf die cuts too and formed them into a kind of bouquet to add to the side of my paper.
I stamped and minimally coloured my image with Promarkers. I put it all together on my card and added some gorgeous sparkly gems to the flower centres.
Now to remind followers and friends of the PB blog that it is time for first challenge in 2016 (One for the girls) which runs for the whole month. As usual there are lots of crafty prizes up for grabs and you also have the chance of being a guest designer on the blog for a month. Pop over to the blog to check all the rules and details of this months challenge and all the beautiful projects made by the DT.

Christmas tweet


While talking to the girls at craft class one day I said "on this card I am doing a bit of mattering and layering" instead of "matting". They all fell about laughing and never cease to remind me of it. 
I did do some matting on this card and I love the rich red card I found at Ally Pally a while ago. I used another of my favourite Penny Black stamps ( they all are) and she is perfect for making children's Christmas cards. As the card looked quite busy I just added a die cut bow (Creative expressions) with a lovely flocked brad and finished off by adding minimal colouring to my image and glitter.
A quick reminder that the Penny Black and More challenge is around the mid way mark but there is still plenty of time for you to enter. A nice easy challenge of Anything goes with a stamp. Pop over using the link above to check out the rules and list of prizes you could win. There is also plenty of inspiration from the DT.

Winter sparkle


Here we are well and truly into winter and so I have made an untraditional girly Christmas card. I used my favourite Penny Black  Christmas stamp and very carefully cut out the image. I tore white card to make the snow drifts and die cut my favourite Christmas tree from a  Marianne die. A few die cut snowflakes and some chunky and some fine glitter brought the scene together. I added a few touches of pink to my image with a promarker.
As it is the first Sunday of the month the Penny Black and More new challenge is on it's way. The December challenge theme is Anything goes and runs to the end of December. Pop over to the blog for all the rules, list of prizes and lots of inspirational work from the DT.

Cold Christmas


I struggled to get a good photo of my card and this was the best I could get but it does give that night time look I was trying to get.
I used another of my all time favourite stamps called Kindness No 40-038. I did minimal colouring but lots of sparkle. I found a large roll of fine sparkly wrapping paper at my local shop which has a sort of thin plastic backing. When die cutting it pops right out of the dies and I get much more value than buying A4 sheets. I tore a strip to make the snow and used a marianne die for the branches. It looks like sparkle heaven when seen in real life.
Now to remind you that the Penny Black and More Christmas challenge is mid way and you still have plenty of time to enter. The DT have made some fabulous cards for inspiration and there are some fantastic craft goodies you could win. You do not have to use a Penny Black stamp image to enter as long as your main image is a stamped image or you can use a PB Stickeroo. Pop over to the blog for all the info making sure you read the hilighted rules section.

A card for Christmas


My first Cristmas card this year. I am way behind but at least I have made a start.
I used one of my most favourite Penny Black stamps called warmest wishes which I use every year on at least three of my cards. Money well spent I would say. 
I stuck with the red and white theme throughout and added die cut glitter border, snowflakes, red bow, pearls and fine glitter for the snow. The paper is from Papermania and the snowflakes were cut from a Spellbinders die.
As we are at the begining of a new month it is time to remind you of the new Penny Black challenge for the month of November and as you can guess the theme this month is Christmas. Pop over to the Penny Black and More blog for all the details and list of prizes.
Oh, and not forgetting the gorgeous work from the design team for your inspiration.

Autumn splender


Autumn is well and truly with us and I decided to use a PB stamp called Jubilant for my PB mid month inspiration card. I distressed  and inked the edges of my papers and around 
my stamped image which layered nicely on my card. I made a double bow with seam binding and added a jewelled trinket to the centre. To finish off I added a few pearls at the edges. The Penny Black and More  Autumnal challenge runs until the end of October so you still have plenty time of time to enter. Pop over to the blog for all the details, list of prizes and the rules.

PB Stickeroo card


Having little mojo at the moment and under pressure to get my Penny Black DT card made I was getting desperate. Autumnal cards are not really my thing either so I spent several days pushing papers and images across my desk leaving a trail of havoc as I went. While searching for inspiration I came across several sheets of Stickeroos and found a couple of suitable images. It didn't end there though as I flicked through several paper pads and coloured card I was getting nowhere. I think I should rename this card "desperation" . Anyway here it is. Paper is from a free pad, image is from a PB Stickeroo sheet called Wherever they grow and the sentiment is PB from stamp sheet called Gratitude.
Now onto this month's challenge at Penny Black and More which is Autumn colours. As usual there are several prizes up for grabs and all the details are on the PB blog For your chance to win pop over and check out the rules and list of prize sponsors.

Flowerpot


I fell in love with the Craftwork cards papers I used on this card which came from a pad called Scrumptious. The pink and turquoise flowers on the cream background look so pretty. I picked up on these colours when I coloured my PB image and mounted my layers with purple mats.
This is my DT card for a reminder of the Anything goes challenge at Penny Black and More for the month of September. There is still plenty of time for you to enter and there are some great prizes up for grabs. To get the list of prizes and rules for the challenge click on the link to the PB blog.
