Two trees – and a teaser!

November 22, 2012

This Thanksgiving, we are extremely thankful for our Penny Black community – here, on flickr, on Facebook, on Twitter, everywhere! Because of you, we are inspired to create and share more!  THANK YOU for visiting, and for being part of all of this!

Heather’s tree is stamped twice, once in Versamark, then slightly lower in Versafine Majestic Blue ink and embossed in clear. To create the snow storm, she splattered masking fluid onto the panel with a tooth brush and after it dried sponged the snow drifts using post-it masks and Memento Summer Sky ink.

Stamps: Before the Snow Noel

. . . continuing our feature where we share some of the beautiful sample cards made for stores that carry Penny Black stamps, along with how-tos. All elegant, all easy-to-recreate.  Penny Black has done all the thinking for you this season! Here’s our third card of the series (and second tree card):
