Welcome, Patti, Guest Designer!

July 18, 2016

This week we’re pleased as punch to welcome a talented guest designer, Patti Kehl, to our blog. Patti’s clean and simple style is both elegant and modern. You can see more of her beautiful stamping on her BLOG.



About Patti

I am mom to 4, grandma to 6 and wife to the best person I’ve ever known. I’ve been creating cards for about 19 years and have enjoyed teaching others, in my home as well as in the classroom. I am so blessed to have been asked to be a Guest Designer for Penny Black. I have found Penny Black product to be of the highest quality. Even the most intricate images stamp with perfect detail and the dies cut like a hot knife through butter. When I was invited to be a Guest Designer, I was asked to create four cards. But there was no way I could stop at four. I have been using nothing BUT Penny Black stamps and dies for WEEKS, creating dozens of cards. I don’t plan to stop anytime soon! : )

We sure hope you don’t stop either! We begin this week of inspiration with Patti’s trio of minature cards.


Patti’s clean and simple set features our transparent set, 30-343 Floral Fusion.


The light pastel background colors paired with the bold, black blooms is certainly eye-catching.




This grouping of cards would make a great gift, too!

    Oooh, so pretty, Patti! I really like the soft color against the bold black, it sure helps the color pop a little more. These are really pretty and would absolutely make a wonderful set of cards to give someone as a heartfelt gift. Thank you for sharing and congratulations again on the guest spot! 🙂
