Fun Friday with Patti and Penny Black

Fun Friday with Patti and Penny

Welcome to my weekly post where I get to share some beautiful new products from Penny Black's newest release "Welcome Winter 2018

This week I wanted to showcase the versatility of the snowy scene in the "Winter Days" stamp set.  Each year I make between 35 and 55 Christmas cards so I try to design cards that are not terribly time consuming.  The cards I will share with you today were incredibly fast and easy to make.

For my first card I began by masking the card face with 1" Post It Tape™.  I sponged a light dusting of pink ink on the upper portion and the same light dusting in blue on the lower portion of the opening.
Next I expanded my mask a little on three sides but left the 1" mask on the lower portion in tact before I stamped the snowy scene in black ink.  I removed all the masking and added my sentiment and beautiful die cut deer.  It might have taken me me longer to write up how I created the card than it took to make it! : )

My second card was even easier to make.  I stamped the entire snowy scene using Versafine, Smokey Gray, ink.  Then I stamped my sentiment in a dark red.  Done!! : )

Another perfect fit for this image is for a Sympathy Card.  Unfortunately winter time is a time we seem to need more of these kinds of cards.  I love how this card turned out.  I added a shimmer to the falling snow and the snow on the ground using Wink of Stella. It is elegant while being respectful.

With only a few minor adjustments this card would also work as a Christmas card or a masculine winter birthday card.

That is it for another Fun Friday post : ) I hope you enjoy your weekend.  Any fun plans?? I'm planning some time in my craft room.  I have agreed to make 20 Christmas Cards for my step Mother for a gift my sisters and I are cooking up.  Penny Black's  "Welcome Winter" release. couldn't have come out at a better time for me!    

Whatever it is you get to do this weekend I hope you will be smiling as you do it!!

Oh wow, these are gorgeous cards, Patti. I like the CAS style, but they pack quite a striking punch. The masking and inking on the first card is so pretty. Thank you so much for sharing! I hope you get very inky this weekend. :)

Plans? only one... trying to work out whether I can live without that ribbon die!!!! xx

CAS and absolutely GORGEOUS...all 3 of them!! I love just the hint of color in your 1st card and the bright pop of red in your 2nd take elegant to a whole new level Patti!! And your sympathy card is STUNNING and totally perfect! Lovely, lovely cards my friend!! :0)

Verna Angerhofer said...

Those cards are all so very beautiful! I just love the elegant simplicity of them. I have to remember to use black or gray and white more often as I forget how very elegant looking they can be. And, the bit of color you added really made them gorgeous. Thanks for the inspiration!

Verna Angerhofer said...

Oh, and thanks for the smile from your cute joke.

Winter scenes are something that I absolutely love and this is such a stunning one! What brilliant ways you've come up with using it! That deer is my favorite design, but they're all fabulous!! Thanks for sharing! HUGS

Nancy said...

You have either been super busy stamping or I haven't been a very good friend. I think it's both! Your Christmas cards always are so Clean and Beautiful Patti! I am in love with the second one for sure but they are all sensational! Heart Hugs my friend!

Lisa Elton said...

Those little touches of color yo've added are perfect! I adore the second card, the sentiment fonts are marvelous! Love them all Patti. Plans...staying warm, they're calling for snow!

Groan. I'm getting caught up with your productivity and so happy to read your jokes again! This is a clever way to stretch your use of stamps and grow the creativity gene. Scenic stamps intimidate me but you've shown the possibilities with them, thanks!
