It's a Party with Penny!

I'm so glad to be back after such a long absence. There have been lots of changes since I was last here, including a major move, but things are steady now, my craft room is up and running again, and I'm ready to roll!

Today I'm participating in a Penny Black blog hop!




You're invited to join in the fun over the  next several days as Penny Black reveals their newest collection of stamps and dies, Happy Heart Day!

Penny Black is kicking off the party with a blog hop! You should have arrived here from Marion Vagg's blog (https://mademarion.vagg.org/). If you want to start the hop from the beginning, you can go to the Penny Black blog (https://pennyblackinc.wordpress.com/ for a complete list of all of the blog hop participants.

Oh, what a fun release this is! You're going to love the critters, some with matching dies, and I have featured one of them, the cutest little bunny ever! I will have links to the Penny Black products used near the end of the post.



I started with a standard A2 card base from dark red paper. A 3-1/2" x 5-1/2" piece of light tan was adhered to the card front. The largest heart from the Heart Balloons was cut from 100 lb. white card stock. I wanted to add a little texture to the heart, so I laid down strips of 1/8" double sided tape and glittered them up!


This adorable bunny from the Lovable and Lovable Cut Out sets was stamped with permanent black ink onto watercolor paper, embossed with clear embossing powder, then die cut with the matching die. I squiggled color from water based markers onto an acrylic block, then picked up the color with a wet watercolor brush and applied it to the bunny. A red twine bow gave her a girly-girly look!



I die cut the Soft Caress from white card stock, and another set of hearts from Pomegranate. I colored the stems with green, then adhered the red hearts directly over the white ones. The glittered heart was added to the card front, the long stemmed hearts were adhered, and then the bunny was adhered with foam tape. The tiny hearts scattered around are just a few of the many you can get from any of the dies from the Lovely Border set.

Here are the links to the products I used:
30-529 Lovable
51-491 Lovable Cut Out
51-493 Heart Balloons
30-528 Kisses and Wishes
51-092 Soft Caress
51-484 Lovely Border 

These and all of the dies and stamps from this wonderful new release are now available in the
Penny Black online store!

And it wouldn't be a party without a giveaway, right? Penny Black is giving away a $50 shopping spree to the Penny Black online store to THREE lucky winners! To enter, leave a comment on any blog hop post (this one included). The giveaway closes on Sunday, December 23rd at 11:59 PM PST, and winners will be announced on the Penny Black blog on December 31st.
