Penny Black Simplicity – Be Mine

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS Valentine created with the Penny Black die set 51-180 All My Hearts.

PB Simplicity Be Mine

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 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.

PB Simplicity – Let It Snow

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.

PB Simplicity Snow Mice

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.

Penny Black Simplicity Winter Birds

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.

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.

An Autumn Day – Penny Black Simplicity

Hello! Today I’m sharing an autumn-themed card created with Penny Black supplies. The leaves are almost off the trees here in the Pacific Northwest, but just a week ago there was quite a color show. I think I appreciated the fall leaves this year more than I ever have before.

Penny Black Simplicity

To create the trees, I colored watercolor paper with Distress Inks and then cut it (once dry) with the 51-208 Trio of Trees die set. I colored the trunks after I die cut, using several brown Distress Inks. I also watercolored a background on a watercolor panel with one of the colors in the Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor set and stamped it with a sentiment in the 30-350 Sentiment Collection set.
