Guest Designer, Carolyn King
My name is Carolyn King (or Cammie!) and I live in sunny Texas with my husband and three children. I love all things crafty but am most drawn to the paper arts–designing cards, altered items and scrapbook pages. I am so excited to be a guest designer for Penny Black. What a fun variety of stamps! You can see more of my work on my personal blog by clicking on my photo.
Big Birthday Wishes
I stamped and colored the adorable main image. I colored it with Copic markers and added some metal dots to the center of the flowers. I stamped the sentiment on pink paper and then stamped it again on orange/yellow so that I could cut out “Great Big” and pop it on top of the original.
Happy Birthday Damask
I was very drawn to this damask background stamp. It is large and easily covers a card front. I LOVE the intricate detail to it – beautiful all on its own. I stamped the sentiment in pink to add a pop of color.
Happy Birthday Flowers
I created this card by inking the flower stamp with water based markers. Instead of spraying a water mist over it..I used a gold glimmer mist spray to remoisten the ink and then stamped. The result is a water colored effect with a touch of sparkle. I stamped the sentiment on vellum and sewed it to the card.
