Guest Designer Extravaganza Week 2

December 22, 2014

Ho, ho, ho! Santa dropped by early this year with an awesome line-up of guest designers here on our blog. Join us over the next several weeks as we “unwrap” the talents under our stamping tree!


This week’s guest designer will add to your holiday fun with her gorgeous watercolor designs. Her cards will have you looking at your stamps in new ways and stretching your artistic muscles. Please join us in welcoming the amazing Swarup Murthy!


I am so happy to be a guest designer this week at Penny Black… It’s truly an honor! I love using their stamps, especially their large cling  stamps . I love to watercolor and I find their illustrations just perfect for my style of coloring. Thank you Penny Black for giving me this opportunity!” -Swarup


So amidst the hustle and bustle of Christmas week, why not take a moment to grab your laptop, curl up by the lights of the Christmas tree, and watch Swarup bring this card to life.

    I think your card is lovely, but I do not agree that it is quick and easy. You are very talented, while I struggle to even color outside of the lines. It was a joy to watch your video. Thanks.
