Golden Dance by Penny Black

HEY FRIENDS! I took a break from making holiday cards to color up a stamp set by Penny Black called Golden Dance. I’ve had my eye on this stamp for awhile because I love its simplicity. So I decided it was a sign when I found both the stamp AND its coordinating die while I was out shopping at Shady Lane Impressions in Pennsylvania. This is a fabulous family owned craft store located in Honeybrook, Pennsylvania. They really have a little bit of everything in stock so it was quite a shopping experience! As always, I’ve linked supplies with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

I stamped the image on Hammermill cardstock using Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and colored the image with Copic markers (see list below). Once the image was colored, I used the coordinating die to cut out the image.

I created an A2 top folding cardbase from Neenah Classic Crest cardstock and added a layer of design paper. I cut a piece of white cardstock using the second largest die in the Stitches of Love Rectangle die set and stamped the sentiment in the lower right corner using Versafine Clair ink in Nocturne. I applied foam adhesive squares to the back of the colored image and assembled the layers as shown.

That’s all for today!

Today’s Project

Rowhouse Greetings | Anita Jeram Fairy Godmother by Colorado Craft Company
Anita Jeram Fairy Godmother by Colorado Craft Company

Featured products:

The Fairy Godmother stamp set includes 12 stamps: 6 images and 6 sentiments. The largest stamp is 3.8 x 3.25 inches and the smallest stamp is 0.25 x 0.25 inches. The stamps can be used with the coordinating Fairy Godmother die set sold separately.

For this card, I stamped the image on Hammermill smooth cardstock with Hero Arts Intense Black Ink. I colored the image with Copic markers and then fussy cut it (coordinating dies are available). I cut another piece of Hammermill cardstock to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and die cut the pattern through the center using one of the dies in the Create a Slimline Border Die Set. I repeated the pattern approximately 1/4″ from the bottom and stamped the sentiment between the patterns using Versafine Clare ink in Nocturne.

For the top, I used the Celestial Star Background Foil Plate and Glimmer Foil in Blush along with the Glimmer Hot Foil System to create the pattern across the top. I trimmed the panel down to 4″ x 5.25″ and applied foam tape to the back for dimension. I attached the panel to the front of an A2 cardbase made from Neenah Classic Crest and assembled the layers as shown.

To finish, I added Wink of Stella in Clear to the wand and crown and dots of white and silver gel pen to the dress.

Hope you enjoyed today’s project! See you again soon!

Anita Jeram Paint the Town by Colorado Craft Company

Hey friends! I couldn’t resist this image from the recent release from Colorado Craft Company. Here I’m featuring the new Anita Jeram Paint the Town stamp set colored with Copic markers (see marker list below). 

As always, I’ve linked supplies with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

Rowhouse Greetings | Anita Jeram Paint the Town by Colorado Craft Company

Featured products:

To start, I created an A2 top folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest cardstock and cut an A2 piece of design paper. I glued the background panel to the cardbase and set them aside.

I stamped the image from the Anita Jeram Paint the Town by Colorado Craft Company on a piece of Hammermill Smooth Cardstock. After coloring the image with Copic markers (see list below), I trimmed the panel to 2.75″ x 4.25″.

Next, I cut a piece of Black Licorice Cardstock by My Favorite Things to 3.75″ x 4.25″ and stamped the sentiment along the bottom with Hero Arts Pigment Ink in Unicorn. I sprinkled Nuvo Embossing Powder in Glacier White and heat set the powder.

Finally, I applied craft foam to the back of the image layer and assembled all the layers as shown.

That’s all for me today! Thanks for stopping by!
