New theme at Penny Black and More Challenges .....Tag it!



Morning!

It's the first Sunday of February and that can only mean one thing - a new theme at Penny Black and More Challenges!  Our new theme this month is "Tag it".

I've made two samples for this month's launch, both quite large.  The first one on the left has been made using 30-284 Sprigs by Penny Black and coloured with Distress Oxides and the second one on the right was made using 40-516 Dynamic, 51-097 Ardor die, 30-417 Delicate silhouettes (where I have used the with love sentiment) and 25-014 Oscillations stencil all by Penny Black.  This tag was also coloured using Distress Oxides.

Finished with some ladder yarns and lovely red ribbon.

These are beautiful as tags on their own but could very easily be used as a topper to help make two larger cards of your own too.

Mid month reminder at Penny Black and More Challenges - New Beginnings....



Good morning!

Half way through January so here I am with my mid month reminder for Penny Black and More Challenges for this months theme of "New Beginnings".

When I saw the sentiment for this sample I got thinking of someone starting a new job. So I've created this card using Penny Black 30-416 Happy thoughts sentiment and 40-099 Soft wings with a computer generated Good Luck In Your New Job.

All colouring is with diluted Distress Oxides and the background is a stencil from my stash (thought it looked nice as it swirls like a butterfly does!)

Good morning!

It's the first Sunday in January and that can only mean one thing..... it's a new theme at Penny Black and More Challenges!

This months theme is "New Beginnings" so thinking caps on for -  new home, new baby, wedding, new job, retirement etc etc - anything where a new beginning starts!

This sample that I've made just took me straight to thinking about a retirement card for a gentleman.  I've used the Penny Black 40-129 Dropping You A Line set.  It's a brilliant stamp set to which I have added a computer generated "As You Retire".

Coloured with Distress oxides and with the added brambles down there at the front which are Penny Black 40-340 Etched Branches.
