Love is …

Hello friends,

The first weekly reader challenge at Penny Black Circle is to create a card using a sketch by the talented Jenyfur. I used one of my favourite Penny Black stamps (although all of them are favourites!) “Catnap” for my card. One of the amazing things about Penny Black stamps is the versatility of the images. I had used this particular stamp for a retirement, holiday and now also for a Valentine’s card. Here is my card:

I entered the card for the following challenges:

I used the following to create the card:

  • White cream and blue cardstock
  • K and Company designer paper
  • Penny Black stamp 4062K “Catnap”
  • Lili of the Valley sentiment stamp
  • Martha Stewart punch “Doiley Lace”
  • Cuttlebug die “Heart and stamps”
  • Gemstones
  • Satin ribbon
  • Faber-Castell Aquarelle and Lyra Rembrandt Aquarelle watercolour pencils

Hope to create another Valentine’s card this week for the Lili of the Valley challenge. Have a wonderful week and happy crafting.

Greetings from South Africa,

Amelia

    Almost missed this one Amelia. I could have sworn I’d left a comment earlier. Guess I meant to and just forgot. This PB stamp is just adorable. Love the red hearts and your design on this one. Beautiful card and so symbolic of spring and summer. “Hugs” Carol

    Beautiful Amelia, I love it when s stamp is so versatile. I’ve used PB Sweet Surrender on a birthday and congratulations card by masking out he hearts, and then on a Valentines card as is. Didn’t use it this time though!! Love your little details and those colours are fab.

    Hugs
