Fun Friday and BLOG CANDY!!

Hello crafty friends!! It is Friday and you know what that means....



and the chance to win my BLOG Candy!!  Scroll down for all the details.

Today I am being featured on the Penny Black Blog HERE.  This opportunity came to be because I was invited to work with Jill Foster, Penny Black's Social Media Director, to create a bunch of cards for the PB marketing department.  The cards we made were created using  "TOP SECRET" prototypes of the two new catalog releases:   "Autumn Wishes" and Magic of the Season" both catalogs can be seen HERE.


This card was super fast and easy.  I masked off the area that  I wanted to ink up and then I inked it up LOL Maybe I should not write these posts late at night! Next I stamped the the ornaments from "Merry Jingle" # 30-375 stamp set and embossed it with Silver Embossing powder. Then  I cut three "Joy" die cuts from the "Love & Joy" dies #51-021 and glued them one on top of the other.   I mounted the top panel to my card base using fun foam and then added a few silver sequins. This would be such an easy card to "Mass produce" if you need to make several Holiday cards quickly!

 
Here was another fast and easy card that I love!!  Cut an A2 size card base and set it aside.  Then cut a "Manger" #51-254 - from a piece of card stock cut to 4.25 x 5".  Removed the center portion of the die cut out and and tape the Manger Scene back into your front panel.  Using the top panel as a guide for placement - ink the Ombre background on to the card base.  Stamped sentiment is from "Holiday Snippets" stamp set #30-307.  Finally mount your top panel to foam and glue it to your card base.  Nothing could be easier : )



My last card today was one of my favorites to make. I tore a piece of Post-It tape and laid it on my card front before inking the landscape from dark to lighter at the top of the card.  Next I stamped my sentiment from the "Yuletide Wishes" stamp set # 30-382. All that was left to do after that was to cut the trees and deer from "Beneath the Birches" #51-270.  I glued the trees directly to the card front but I popped the deer up with foam tape to give it some dimension. Maybe the series today should be called "Easy Peasy!"

I mean it when I say I LOVE this release from Penny Black!!  There are so many ways to use these beautiful products!!  Understanding that the Wish List is sometimes bigger than the pocket book I am offering $25.00 in your choice of Penny Black product to be won by one of my commentors : ) Keep reading to see how you can have the chance to win.

These are all beautiful cards.. love the blue theme.. Each one is special.. you continue to astound us.

My initial, eaten comment, was laden with reactions that spoke to the stunning, gorgeous cards you've shared with us...and that response has not changed one iota! In fact, this second viewing has captivated me all the more. Your blending is top-notch; your showcases of the products, stellar (sales will be climbing with your influence!); your creativity, sensational! The Nativity scene, especially, touches my heart...
Hugs~c
