It’s easy to express your gratitude with stamping and paper crafting, and this week, the Penny Black team is sharing some little notes of thanks that are perfect to make and keep on hand, not just for this time of year, but for birthdays and all the little in-between things, too.
Today, we have two adorable cards from designer Cathy Andronicou – One cute, one fancy . . . both striking!
Stamps: Chill Day 4284K, Salutations 30-014 and Storm 01-001
Cathy says, “I inked the Chill Day stamp using a Memento Black Marker pen, so that I could leave the clothes without ink I then stamped onto white card, embossed with Spellbinders rectangles, Lined up clear sentiment with pegs and coloured image with Copics. A touch of diamond dust glitter was added to the snow and fur for added effect.”
And a little more from Cathy: “A piece of white cardstock was inked with Tim Holtz Seedless Preserves using the direct to paper technique, once dry the diamond pattern was embossed using Purple WOW glitter embossing powder. The tree was then stamped onto a separate piece of card, cut out using a spellbinders circle die and the edges inked with Wild Honey and Seedless Preserves ink. I then went mad adding lots of dots of liquid pearls and stickles. The sentiment was stamped onto card and cut using a spellbinders die, the base part was embossed and inked to bring out the pattern and ribbon added to hide the join in the two colours of card.”
