Hello! Today, I’m sharing a bright CAS card, suited for a variety of occasions, featuring a combination of Penny Black dies.
I cut the sentiment with the 51-340 Dream Big die several times for additional depth. I cut the fish with the 51-314 Fancy Fish die from a variety of cardstock colors. I used an embossing folder for the waves peeking out through the hole.
Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS “Hello”card featuring a combination of Penny Black dies including 51-303 Build a House.
To begin, I stamped the background stamp 40-310 Star Ivy with pigment ink. While it was drying, I cut the 51-303 Build a House pieces from cardstock and assembled them with Ranger Multi Medium Matte glue. I cut the sentiment from the 51-040 Hello Frame set twice, for extra depth, which I also assembled with the Ranger glue. I cut the background with a rectangular die and circle die at the same time. I cut the fence from the 51-073 Haunted Hollow die set and placed it behind the houses in the scene. After assembling the scene I added a cloud cut with the smallest die in the 51-033 Silver Linings set.
Recently, I shared another card created with the 51-303 Build a House set on the Penny Black Simplicity site. I hope you’ll head over there and check it out.
Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS watercolored thank you card featuring the Penny Black stamp set 30-418 Stitched Flowers from the BLISS 2017 release.
I stamped the floral image with VersaFine ink on Arches watercolor paper and colored it with watercolors, watercolor pencils, and Distress Inks. Once dry, I stamped the sentiment. I added the panel to a card base which I colored with Distress Inks to match the floral blooms. To finish it off, I added a die-cut frame cut from gray cardstock.
Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS friendship card featuring Penny Black products from the BLISS 2017 release.
I applied a variety of Distress Inks to cardstock from which I cut the largest owl and branch in the 51-316 Mommy and Me Owls set and the 51-308 Bold Branch. I used the owl die to cut the teal, orange and white cardstock; the orange and white are inlaid. I adhered black cardstock behind the eyes.
I applied Tumbled Glass Distress Ink with my Clarity brush to the card background and stamped the sentiment from 30-418 Stitched Flowers. The owl was added with foam adhesive and the branches were glued to the card base.
Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS card featuring Penny Black products from the BLISS 2017 release.
The 51-330 Beautiful Blossom set includes dies for the overlay and the blossom underneath, making it easy to create the blossoms! I colored white cardstock with Distress Inks – Picked Raspberry, Abandoned Coral and Ripe Persimmon – for the blossoms. I cut the overlays from white cardstock. I assembled the flowers only at their center part so that I could add dimension by pulling the overlay up away from the blossom underneath. I cut the greenery with the 51-308 Bold Branch die from white cardstock which had been colored with Mowed Lawn and Shabby Shutters Distress Inks. Using a Clarity brush, I added Tumbled Glass to the card background before stamping a sentiment from the 30-418 Stitched Flowers stamp set.
Hello! Today, I’m sharing a card featuring Penny Black products from the BLISS 2017 release. Using one of the dies in the 51-314 Fancy Fish set, I cut two fish (reversing the cardstock for the second fish). I colored the fish with a variety of Distress Inks. I backed the die cuts with solid white cardstock and used Nuvo drops for the eyes.
I placed the fish on a card background colored with Distress Ink using a Clarity stencil brush. I used a sentiment from 30-419 Happy Wishes and clear droplets to finish this CAS card.
Today, I’m sharing a watercolored card created with Penny Black supplies.
I watercolored the 40-445 Flower Box image, which I stamped with VersaFine ink on watercolor paper, with Zig Clear Color Real Brush markers, watercolor pencils and watercolors. Once dry, I trimmed the panel down and added it to a custom-sized card base.
I die cut the 51-340 Dream Big sentiment twice (for added depth) and added it to the image over a vellum circle.

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.
