Hello everyone! I have three cards to share with you today!

I had the pleasure to play with the new stamp and die collection, called Dreaming by Penny Black. It is a lovely release again which includes beautiful floral stamps, cute critters and gorgeous scenic stamps. 


My plan was actually to make a floral card using Flower Collection (30-575) stamp set. But it ended up with three cards :).

Let’s take a look at my first card. 
I was coloring this floral cluster from Flower Collection(30-575) set during the latest 30 day coloring challenge  hosted by Kathy Racoosin. I started first with the black and white flowers and added the red flowers as my focal element.

I stamped the floral cluster two times on a white cardstock panel in gray Memento ink. I colored the image using C Copic colors and added details using Polychromos pencils also in cool gray. I then splattered gold watercolor on the panel and let it dry.

I then stamped the floral cluster once more on a separate white cardstock. I used pink ink for the flowers and light green ink for the leaves. I colored the image using Copic markers again. For the flowers I used some red colors and added a little bit of orange. I drew the stamen using a thin black liner and fussy cut the image and set it aside.

I cut the base panel with black and white florals using the largest die from Leaf Stitched Frames (51-552)die set and mounted it flat on a kraft cardbase. To add the red flowers I cut a circle using a die from Stitched Circles (51-551) die set from a kraft cardstock. As the faux stitch appears outside of the circle I could get a circle without the stitch pattern. I gold heat embossed the edge of the panel to add some accents.

I adhered the floral cluster on the circle piece and foam mounted it on the card. The sentiment is from Hedgie Harmony(30-589) set. I white heat embossed it on a strip of black cardstock and added it to the card.

Next card is featuring Hedgie Harmony (30-589) set and Stitched Circles(51-551) die set

As I cut a circle from a kraft cardstock for the first card, an idea came into my mind. I cut the same circle two more times on a A2 sized panel of kraft cardstock so that I have a panel with three stitched circles.

I stamped three hedgehogs from Hedgie Harmony(30-589) on a A2 sized white cardstock panel in black Memento ink. I used the kraft panel with three windows as my guide to place the stamps. I then colored the hedgehogs and instruments using Copic markers. I ink blended around the images in yellow, blue and pink respectively using Distress inks.

I colored a strip of white cardstock using Copic markers in green and cut it using one of the Garden Edgers (51-549) die set. I adhered the grass behind the circle windows and foam mounted the front panel on the card. The sentiment from the same stamp set was white heat embossed on a strip of cardstock which I colored in ombre green using Copic markers. To finish off I scattered some shiny sequins.

The last card is showcasing a cute bear and a hedgehog celebrating someone’s birthday. They are from the adorable Birthday BFF set (30-587).

I started off by stamping the image on a watercolor paper in black pigment ink. I watercolored the hedgehog and the polar bear. To make the white bear pop, I added watercolor wash in the background and splattered white ink on it.

I cut the front panel using Leaf Stitched Frames (51-552) die set and Stitched Circles(51-551) die set from some textured white cardstock and foam mounted it on the card on which I adhered the colored image.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set. I made a 3D banner for the sentiment with some white cardstock. The banner doesn’t look perfect but still cute :). Some iridescent sequins were my finishing touch for this card.

So that’s all for today.
