Welcome Guest Designer Penny Ward

March 21, 2016

This week we are excited to share the stamping of a wonderfully talented Guest Designer. Welcome Penny Ward!



My first purchase when I decided to try my hand at card making was Tiny Wishes by Penny Black. I still often grab for the cute little mouse hanging from a branch, so yes, Penny Black will always be my first love (of stamps). Their flower and silhouette stamps are the prettiest by far and I can’t begin to tell you how honored I am to have been asked to Guest Design for them. I do believe a Happy Dance was involved!

About Me

I am going to keep this short and sweet. These are the things that matter to me…..I am a Daughter, Sister, Wife, Mother, Nana, Breast Cancer Survivor and Card Designer….. Life is Good!

Well, Penny, life is good here on our blog when we have your stunning creations to share! Without further ado, let’s take a peek at Penny’s beautiful designs.


Penny proves that blue may just be the most elegant color when stamping with our Slapstick/Cling stamp, 40-453 Passionate.


And by folding our Creative Die, 51-195 Bookmark, she’s also created a miniature card. Genius!

    So happy to see Penny’s awesome work featured this week. I may be her biggest fan. Her designs are always fresh, unique and amazing. She is all she says she is in her into, but she forgot to mention “friend”. I am excited to see more!

      Thanks Becky…I love all your capital mean it! Many hugs, 🙂

    SERIOUSLY…..THIS CARD IS STUNNING!!!!! I mean, the stamp is lovely but you made it look AMAZING!!!!!
    One question if I may…..did you wet the paper before your stamped it or after. Or, did you spray the stamp before stamping it? I just love the deep, rich color in the centers and the softer color on the edges and I don’t see any lines whatsoever in this image.
    I just love this card, thank you so much for sharing.

    Maria Rodriguez.

      Miss Maria, Thank you for the kudos!!! I used a Misti tool to do the stamping on watercolor paper. The only time water comes into play is AFTER everything is stamped. I then take a damp paintbrush, touching the edges of the ink and pulling the color outward. Hope that is helpful. hugs 🙂

      • March 24, 2016 6:21 am

        Miss Maria, Amending my instructions in the previous reply. In all honesty this card was made a while ago, but in looking at the card again, I did mist the stamp after inking. One light spray, you don’t want the ink dripping off the stamp. 🙂

    Great job, love the blue!

  15. March 22, 2016 1:21 pm

    So beautiful! I’ll be using up my blue watercolors it looks like trying this out!

    • March 23, 2016 4:12 am

      Miss Bev….shhh, don’t tell, but Blue is my favorite color and though you don’t see a lot of blue flowers, I say why not and paint them myself. Thanks for the kudos. hugs, 🙂

      Toooo funny! Actually, that is why my very first stamp purchase was chosen…because they had my name. hugs, 🙂
