Fantastic Sister

Good morning everyone!  This week the sneak peeks continue on the Penny Black Blog where they are showcasing more of their soon to be released new stamps. 

Today I am using Word Express for this colorful greeting.  This transparent set is fantastic for creating endless phrase combinations, “texty” backgrounds or for shouting out a happy expression.  In this sample, the words were stamped on colored cardstocks and adorn a tall flower. 

By intermixing sets, the flower was assembled from Floral Thread and Puzzle Parts and positioned on a slightly trimmed Reverse Wonky Rectangle die cut from white cardstock.  Puzzle Parts, which you will see more of on Wednesday with Floral Thread, was also used to make the lattice patterned paper.

TIP/HINT:  To create a soft glow on cardstocks, lightly burnish the edges with a coordinating ink.  These Penny Black cardstocks were highlighted with sponge daubers and Memento inks.

Have a great day,
