From Mimi

September 2, 2011

How adorable is this new Mimi stamp? Elizabeth Allan used “From Mimi” to create a fanciful, vibrant holiday card. The background was created from the decorative frame in the Transparent “Airmail” set. Elizabeth ‘popped’ her card elements using foam tape. She also added dimensional elements like glossy accents, Crystal Stickles, and glitter. Elizabeth colored the snow dots with a white gel pen. The focal image was colored with Copic Markers.

That wraps up our Christmas Mimi week! We’re back on Monday with a 5-day feature on Simple Stamping. Whether you’re new at this, or an seasoned pro, you’ll find cool tips & tricks from the Penny Black Designers to create clean and simple cards. See you then, have a great weekend!
