Simply Saturday – A Penny Black design

A fresh simple design for Saturday again. This new Penny Black image I recently got from Stamp Art is so gorgeous, simplicity is the best way to go! Nancy is fabulous and will ship anywhere so if you are looking for this image, give her a call! 🙂

Heartfelt Thanks (click on pic for detail)


For this design, I stamped my image directly on a large square of vellum cardstock. The Palette Noir Hybrid ink from Stewart Superior works fabulous on the vellum….love this ink! Now what I love about this card, you really can’t see too well in the pic. I colored the flowers in with my Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze pens. So easy and quick but it gives a great shine and dimension to the image. I bought these from Stamp Art too! 🙂 The biggest problem is keeping them out of the hands of my daughter! LOL

The rest of the design is pretty simple. The card base is 5″ square of Soft Sky cardstock and layered with Purely Pomegranate and then more Soft Sky. The vellum layer is attached with black brads. For the sentiment, I used another Papertrey Ink sentiment…I just love their sentiments!

Wishing you a very happy and safe weekend! Yay for a long Canada Day weekend here! And please, make sure you wear your sunscreen!
