Fun Friday: Simply Elegant
Over the next couple of months, several of our Fun Fridays will have a clean and simple twist as we feature the elegant stamping of Patti Kehl.
Shimmer and Shine… two words to describe Patti’s clean and simple cards for us today! For her first card, she’s embossed our Slapstick/Cling wreath, 40-490 Pine Burst, with copper embossing powder. By also embossing the sides of her card, she’s ensured the entire design is well balanced and extra shimmery.
Next, Patti demonstrates that our brushstroke stamp, 40-494 Scarlet Majesty, is not only great for watercolor techniques. Just look at the detail she achieved by simply stamping it with VersaFine ink! And to add some extra shimmer and shine, using her MISTI, (after stamping with VersaFine ink) Patti inked only the edges of the petals and leaves with VersaMark ink and sprinkled them with silver embossing powder. A small paintbrush was used to brush off any excess powder before setting/melting the powder with a heat tool. To tie everything together, she also added silver embossing to our Creative Die sentiment, 51-251 Rejoice.
And finally, Patti’s next card is as fresh as newly fallen snow. She’s cut the background layer our Creative Die, 51-265 Woodland Scene, from glittery cardstock.
Will you be adding shimmer and shine to your stamping and die cutting this weekend? We’d love to see YOUR Penny Black creations. Upload them to our Penny Circle Flickr Gallery and/or our Facebook page.
