It’s Easter Time!

February 21, 2011

Hello and welcome back! We have a fun week ahead that’s full of brand new Easter cards from our talented Designer, Elizabeth Allan. You will love her vibrant, happy holiday cards featuring new Easter stamps from our Spring 2011 Catalog, along with our Mix & Match Cardstock.

Supplies: Penny Black Stamps – 40-059 Easter March and 30-068 Trims. Penny Black Mix & Match Cardstock – Summer Sun 17-002 and Fuchsia Fantasies 13-003. Here is the new Slapstick stamp that Elizabeth used for this card. Our Slapstick stamps are mounted on thick foam for clear and crisp images and they cling perfectly to acrylic blocks. They’re also easy to store!


As you know, we announce our weekly card challenge every Monday here at the Penny Black Blog. This week’s challenge is all about Easter cards. Create a new Easter card using Penny Black Stamps and enter it into our Gallery by Sunday night at Midnight, PST. Please tag your entry with “pennyblackeaster” so we can easily view all of the Easter entries. Good luck!  We’ll be back tomorrow with another Easter card sample and our winner from last week’s vellum challenge!  🙂
