Penny Black Blog Hop ....

My good friend Kath Stewart asked me to be guest designer for the Penny Black blog hop and this is what I made with the images Kath sent me ...


Design stamped onto digital cardstock and coloured with copic pens.  A double bow with seam binding and satin ribbon - now I know how to make them thanks to Kath!


Love this image, cut out a couple of layers and curled the petals slightly attached with foam pads and then I added glossy accents for the shine.  I punched holes in my Candi and tied bakers twine through them to look like buttons.






Stamped and coloured the image using copic's and again added some glossy accents for an enamelled look.  Wrapped bakers twine around my card and added a sentiment as a tag.





Finally I loved this flower that Kath had stamped in different colours.  I cut them into squares added them to an 8x8 card blank and attached a message in the centre.  A few punched butterflies and glitter glue finish the card.
 
I have some Blog Candi to giveaway too!  A little goody bag with: Digital Cardstock (perfect for stamping onto) card blanks, message bands and sentiments all from Craftwork Cards.  Just leave me a comment as to which is your favourite card and why and I will randomly select a winner next week.


Now hop over to Kath's blog to see her Penny Black creation this week ...

All gorgeous but the top pink one is my favourite - something about daisies just makes me think of Summer and pink is my favourite colour. Mary G x

Flying Fresian said...

Lovely cards - my favourite is the third one as I love the enamelled look you've done and how clean and simple it looks.

Janine said...

Love them all but if I have to choose - the 3rd one. Like the simple layout, pop of colour and the addition of the twine.

Julie said...

ginny c said...

Grenouille Greetings said...

Goodness me - not one but four lovely cards to admire. And they are all super pretty. My fave, however, has to be the poppy. It's so striking! Love the text on the poppy flower and the depth you have achieved and the glazing is a fab idea! Hugs, Lesley

Lorraine said...

Love them all, but my fave has to be the second one. The colours are so rich. Perfect for an autumn birthday ( yes it will be here soon!), but with a bit if greenery, could double up as a Christmas card! There you go Julie, you've got me thinking about Christmas already!!! Xxx

loulou said...

Julie, I think all your cards are gorgeous, but if I have to chose my favourite would be the red poppy. I love the dimension and the glossy accents - it is just superb, cheers Linda
