More new designs from Penny Black's 2012 Summer Collection!

This shapely card was created with a Spellbinders Labels Ten.  Two die cuts from white cardstock form the card base.  A third piece cut from Sea Breeze cardstock was stamped with Flower Flourish in Teal Zeal Memento ink and highlighted with the same color and a sponge dauber.  After adding faux stitching and black brads, the piece was aligned and attached to the prepared card with dimensional foam tape.

TIP/HINT:  For fast faux stitching, trace the inside of the metal die with a fine-tip black pen.  Remove the metal die and then paper pierce evenly spaced holes along the traced line.

The flower from Petal Party was stamped twice on white cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with Brushstix and Memento inks (Cantaloupe, Lilac Posies and Elderberry).  The same method was used for the leaf using Pistachio and Olive Grove Memento inks.

The perfectly spaced dots were easy to stamp in Pistachio Memento ink using the stem included in Round and Round.  After the sentiment was stamped, the piece was edged in Peanut Brittle Memento.

All the components were layered with dimensional foam and accents were added to all the dots with black and green Glaze pens.

You can also see other designs using Petal Party featured on the Penny Black blog "here".

Looking forward to sharing MORE new images next week!
