Shall we take a break from the fall and winter weather for a breath of fresh air and flowers? We think so! These bright flowers by Yoonsun featuring our Slapstick/Cling stamp, 40-238 Floral Applique, really pop.

Jacqueline’s collage stamping is so fresh and lovely.

alexandra’s Sunday scrapbooking – Peekaboo Cards

November 22, 2014

Hello dear Friends! Welcome to a new edition of scrapbooking with Penny Black’s products. Today, I’d like to share some PeekaBoo Cards I’ve made using stamps and Creative dies from Penny Black and Distress Inks for the background… I hope you’ll join me at art scrap & more. Thank You!

Collaboration with Inchie Arts: Day 6

November 22, 2014

This week we are thrilled to be collaborating with Inchie Arts featuring their awesome Art Squares! What are Art Squares, you ask? They are the perfect surface for stamping and coloring. Art Squares are made from the highest quality, artist grade, precision cut matboard. The material is unique because it behaves like watercolor paper, enabling papercrafters to use a variety of both wet and dry coloring mediums (including paints, inks, stains, markers, colored pencils, etc.) without surface deterioration. Check out all of the sizes and colors of Art Squares on the Inchie Arts website.

Day 6 of our collaboration with Inchie Arts brings to us a special guest… Judy Jung, AKA the talented Mrs. Runs with Scissors! Judy made three cards for us today, each using different sections of our Slapstick/Cling stamp, 40-339 Winter Song.

40-339

1

Judy inked the surface of her stamp with VersaMark Ink and then pressed a 3 inch Art Square face down onto the selected stamp area. After heat embossing, she then added Distress Inks for a light and magical background.

2

By repeating this process, each time placing a new Art Square on a different part of the stamp, a variety of scenes were created.

3

A little extra embellishing with Creative Die, 51-080 Around Town, completes the scenes with frosty style.

Heather used 1.5” white Art Squares to create a mosiac design on her holiday décor door hanger.

To stamp her winter scene, Heather reached for the whimsical Christmas village from our transparent set, 30-266 Gleeful.

30-266

She placed her Art Squares in a 2 x 3 array on masking paper to hold them together while stamping and painting with watercolor pencils.

To assemble her mosaic, she removed the Art Squares from the masking paper and attached them to dark green cardstock, leaving a small margin between the Art Squares. What a unique way to stamp a scene. This would look fabulous on a card, too!
