Big BIG News!

Hi Everyone! I have some pretty exciting news to share with you tonight! I received a phone call this afternoon and was invited to be a part of the Penny Black design team! There stamps are SO cute and fun to play with. I can't tell you how excited I am about this opportunity!!!

Here is my first card design for them. I also created a scrapbook page (can you believe it) that I will share in the next couple of days.

When I saw THIS owl he had to be mine! I love him! It felt natural to me to make him hold something so I found this little cupcake to put in his hand. I also have to point out THIS stamp set. It is so versatile! I used it to create the background grid design, the diamonds on the green paper AND for the sentiment. The final detail was adding the recipient's name (my brother Adam) with white ink on the blue paper. I did this using the Robust Upper Case alphabet set.


Have a great night!

Materials:
Stamps: Penny Black Robust Upper Case, Salutations, Nocturne, Cup-Cake
Paper: Papertrey Ink Kraft, Dark Chocolate, Simply Chartreuse, Aqua Mist, Stampers Select White
Ink: VersaMark, PTI Fresh Snow, Memories Black Dye Ink, Memento Tuxedo Black
Other: PTI Buttons, Ribbon; Pinking Shears, Glossy Accents, PTI Eyelet Lace Die Cut
