Rose's Dragonfly Creation/ Keeping it Clean and Simple

"Rose S. sent me this lovely dragonfly card. She paste-embossed it onto white cardstock with the Dreamweaver Glossy White Embossing Paste (DGWP) and then sprinkled it with several mica powders while it was wet. After it was dry she tapped the excess powders off and burnished it. Then she repositioned the stencil onto the paste-embossed stencil design (LM193 dragonfly) and outlined it with a black fine tipped pen, cut it out and mounted it onto a piece of black velvet paper that was cut out with a nestie. The five crystal embellishments added that finishing touch." -- Lynell Harlow at Dreamweavers

I don't know how I missed this posting from Penny Black's blog a while back, especially since I love tulips! These would make beautiful Easter cards.
"Kathy Racoosin is sharing a pair of cards using brand new Penny Black Stamps. Our new collection will be available in our online store soon!"
by Jenyfur
"Kathy says: 'There is a tupip called “Candy Cane” so I was trying to achieve that same look by feathering red onto the petals. I added highlights to the petals with a yellow marker. TIP: When using red, you don’t want to go over the area to many times or the color will stop blending.'
Here’s a close-up of Kathy’s gorgeous cards!"
SUPPLIES: spring beauty 40-104, sweet wishes 30-104, backgrounds: circles & lines 40-084, majestic composition 40-049. Paper: Penny Black Mix & Match Cardstock/Summer Sun Trio. Misc. distress ink, Spellbinders Dies, ribbon, copic markers.

VIDEO: Velveteen Stamping
By Shari Carroll

"Stamp layering with a velveteen look! This technique came to me on accident as I stamped on a scrap of paper that had an image stamped in white. It was an "Ah Ha" moment that I just had to share it with you.

  1. Stamp an image on a white notecard using Memories Unicorn pigment ink. Allow to dry.
  2. Stamp flowers or other bold images over top to create the velveteen look."


Clean and Simple with a nice twist
