Come join me at Photo Scraps today (January 20, 2018) for their monthly Demo Day. There’s always a variety of cards and layouts for you to create. I’ve got two super simple cards this month featuring stamps sets from Penny Black and Lawn Fawn that have been hiding in my stash waiting for the perfect opportunity to be highlighted on a card.
For the first card, I selected one of the images from the Penny Black Stitched Flowers stamp set and used my Tim Holtz Stamping Platform and aligned the stamp along the bottom of the card. I knew that I was going to color the sentiment as well as the image so I stamped everything at the same time using Memento Ink. I used a variety of Copic colors to matched the design paper.
I kept the second card super simple, using only stamps from the Lawn Fawn Happy Happy Happy stamp set. This is a great card to try if you don’t feel confident using your Copics or you need a little practice with blending. I picked three simple color combinations that matched the design paper and colored each “Happy” sentiment in an ombre effect, shading dark to light from bottom to top.
I’ll be with the Photo Scraps gang from 11AM until 4PM – be sure you stop by and join in on the fun! Don’t forget to bring your tape runner and scissors!

I’ve always loved the Laurel Burch feline images – colorful, quirky – just like most of the cats in my life. So when I saw that Stampendous released Whiskers as a stamp, I had to have it. While the image would be beautiful in all sorts of bright Copic inks, today I just didn’t feel like figuring out all of those colors.
Sometimes I’m a lazy colorist. There, I’ve said it.
So instead, I pulled out six shades of Distress Inks in rainbow hues to form a colorful background. I heat embossed the image, added a bit of vellum and attached a die cut “hello” cut from gold foil. And with little effort, I have a card ready to pop in the mail to brighten a friend’s day.

Back today with another holiday card, this time featuring this cute image from Penny Black. I love the Penny Black animal images particularly the holiday themed images. The menagerie of mice, cats and hedgehogs always bring a smile to my face. Add some colorful design paper from Doodlebug, a Lawn Fawn die cut from foil paper and a bit of ribbon and you have a quick, colorful, and fun card that goes together quickly.
Here’s a look at the inside.
