Today, I’m sharing a CAS friendship card created with Penny Black supplies.
I stamped the 40-469 Hydrangea image using different colors of Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Shaded Lilac, Salty Ocean; I combined inks on the stamp before stamping) three times, rotating the image each time.
I stamped a sentiment from 30-353 Words of Kindness and added butterflies cut from cardstock, to which I’d applied Distress Inks, with a die in the 51-132 Flights of Fancy set.
I hope you’ll head over to the Penny Black Simplicity blog where I am sharing a different take with the 40-469 Hydrangea stamp.
Hello! Today I’m sharing a CAS friendship card created with Penny Black supplies. It was so relaxing to watercolor bright flowers given the rain and overcast we’ve been experiencing here in the Pacific Northwest.
I stamped and heat-embossed one of the images from the 30-346 Perfect Pairing stamp set on Arches watercolor paper and colored it with Zig brushes and Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors. After the panel was dry, I stamped a sentiment from 30-344 Sunny Wishes and adhered the panel to an A2 card base.
Hello! Today I’m sharing a CAS Valentine created with Penny Black supplies. This postman hedgehog is making his rounds with Valentines!
I stamped the hedgehog image, from the 30-271 Share A Hug stamp set, on watercolor paper and colored it with a variety of mediums, including watercolor pencils, Zig markers and Distress inks. I cut a frame for the image from patterned paper in my stash. I die-cut the sentiment, from the 51-284 Filled With Love set, twice for extra depth. I added the sentiment to the frame with foam adhesive.
Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS Valentine created with the Penny Black die set 51-180 All My Hearts.
I used the die set, which includes five detailed hearts and a solid heart, to cut the hearts from a variety of color cardstock. I adhered the overlays to the solid hearts with liquid adhesive and attached the assembled hearts to colored cardstock squares with foam adhesive.
I’m also over on the Penny Black Simplicity blog today with another die-cut Valentine! Hope you’ll head on over and take a look!

I stamped the cat image, from the 30-271 Share A Hug stamp set, on watercolor paper and colored it with a variety of mediums, including watercolors and watercolor pencils. I also painted a strip of watercolor paper with paint, and once dry, I die-cut the strip with one of the dies in the 51-284 Filled With Love set. I added the sentiment to the image with foam adhesive.
Hello! I’m sharing a CAS winter-themed, Valentine’s Day card created with Penny Black dies.
I used the 51-281 What’s in Your Cup? die set to cut the mugs, tea bag, steam and foam, and colored the pieces with Distress Inks. I added a sentiment cut with 51-284 Filled With Love. I cut the sentiment twice for extra depth. The mugs were added to the background with foam adhesive.
Hello! Today I’m sharing a CAS winter card created with Penny Black supplies. Even though these products were intended for holiday card making, I’m enjoying creating winter-themed cards that aren’t specifically Christmas-y.
I stamped the sledding mice image from 30-385 Santa’s Helpers on watercolor paper and colored it with watercolor pencils and watercolor paint. For the sentiment, I used the 51-082 Snow Wishes die to cut watercolor paper twice. I trimmed the top part of the sentiment (which says “Let it” away on both die cuts and glued them together for extra depth.
I hope you’ll head over to the Penny Black Simplicity blog where I have another winter-themed card also using the 51-082 Snow Wishes die.

Hello! I’m sharing a CAS holiday card created with Penny Black supplies.
I colored the watercolor paper background with inks and watercolor paint using the smooshing technique. Separately, I colored watercolor paper with red watercolor, from which I cut the birds using the 51-206 The Sweetest Sound II die. Once the background was dry, I stamped the 30-382 Yuletide Wishes sentiment. For texture and visual interest, I added snowflakes cut with the 51-268 A Blizzard die set.
Wishing you and yours Happy Holidays!
Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS Christmas card created with Penny Black supplies. I chose a sentiment from 30-382 Yuletide Wishes as my starting point. I wanted to create a serene winter scene.
I stamped the bottom of the card base with silver ink using one of the stamps in the 30-258 Prancers set. I cut 51-264 Conifer twice and adhered the trees together, fluffing up the top tree for dimension. The star die in the 51-088 Tiny Tree set was used to cut a silver foil star for the top of the tree. I cut the deer from silver foil with one of the dies in the 51-069 Together set and added it to the scene with foam adhesive.
