Penny Black Saturday Challenge # 127...Merry Christmas Mail & Let it Snow!

Hey crafty friends! Just a quick post to share two cards that I made with this adorable Penny Black Stamp, Royal Mail. I have just discovered Penny Black's sweet little Mimi stamps...totally love her to bits....she is soooooo cute! I made these cards to be displayed at Crop Circles in Peterborough. I used BoBunny Winter Joy collection also from Crop Circles....I just love this paper and these non-traditional colours are so pretty. Perfect with this sweet wintry scene of Mimi off to mail a card. I made these cards CAS...can you believe it....no flowers, pearls, bling...just one sparkly Winter Joy BoBunny brad and a little ribbon. I really like how they turned out.

I coloured Mimi with my Copics and I cut the images out with my Circle Nesties. I also used my Favourite Kelly Panacci Christmas sentiment stamps on these cards and my fave QuicKutz photocorner die and tag die...on the top card I added Stickles and on the bottom card I used Polar White Flowersoft...love that stuff.

I found the Penny Black Saturday Challenge and this week the challenge is to use All My Favourite things...I have lots of faves on these cards...so I am entering these cards in PBSC!

Thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my cards!

Hugs,

These are both delightful Tara, & I have to say that I love this CAS style of yours - the eyes focus on the image & the colour scheme in both these examples - the colours (& colouring) being outstanding in both. The PB stamps are a delightfully diverse range - I've just signed up to their newsletters so was particularly excited when I saw the stamp you'd used. Thank you for a lovely treat.

Wow Tara, beautiful. I bought this paper and am planning to use it to do my Xmas cards. Do you mind if I ask what copic colors you used. I'm having trouble matching the greens, and I can't seem to get the light purples right. Would love your advice. I love how you 3D'd the snow.
