Eat Cake and Be Merry
Welcome to the Penny Black Blog! We have a full week of brand new cards using stamps from our latest release along with a card challenge and giveaway. Today’s card features a focal image from one of my favorite transparent sets, “Eat Cake“;
I used our large, wood-mounted background stamp, “Scroll Tapestry”, for the bottom strip. I stamped it in Versamark and embossed it with white.
I used cardstock from Penny Black’s new Mix & Match collection — our “Blue Lagoon” trio;
Once you get your hands on Penny Black Mix & Match cardstock, you’ll never use anything else… The rich colors, heavy feel, and white core are perfect for all of your paper crafting projects. You can purchase our cardstock packs in our online store by clicking HERE. Speaking of Mix & Match Trios – I’m in the mood for a giveaway! If you’d like to win a packet of our Blue Lagoon Cardstock (and we’ll throw in a few more color combinations!), just leave a comment on this post. Be sure to stop by all week long as I’ll be giving away Penny Black cardstock every day!
