Penny Black Cheers!

Hi everyone :-) I hope you're all having a lovely weekend!

I am thinking of all of those affected by the horrific fires in California, my heart is with you all and hope you are all safe XXX ❤️


I made a couple of cards using a Penny Black Cheers Cling Stamp, I have used this stamp quite often and I have to say, it is one of my all time faves, perfect for so many family and friends ;-)


I coloured with Copic Markers and added a little shading with Prismacolor Pencils. I highlighted the design by diecutting the Birch Press Stitched Heart, I adhered several layers to make it pop up and I love the extra interest and depth this gives the design. 




and I finished the inside using a Simon's Exclusive Painted Happy Birthday Die 


Next up is a similar card made for my SIL's 50th Birthday!




and I finished the inside 



Thanks for looking! I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend XX

Cute cards. The shenanigans sometimes start earlier than 50. I liked the envelopes, too. [Bunny]```

This stamp would be a staple in my collection too. I can see where you could use it for many occasions. I love how you embossed the heart around the image. Fabulous! Thanks for sharing it with us at Seize the Birthday.

Wonderful matching envelopes. Thanks for joining us at the Crafter's Cafe this fortnight.

What a great stamp and I love the two ways you've used it. The raised heart looks great. The washi/twine embellishment adds great interest while keeping the card uncluttered. I really like how you've finished them with the inside and the envelopes - I never do this and yet it makes the card really special. Thanks for joining The Library.
