Penny Black goodness

Hello, friends! Happy September! Honestly, where did the month of August go? This month will be super busy for me. Our kitchen renovation will begin and I'm trying to imagine what the demolition process will be like and wondering how much crafting time I'll have with construction going on. Wish me luck!

For the recent Penny Black ATC swap, I was partnered with Jie Ying in Singapore. Here are her ATCs that she sent me using her Penny Black stamps. Aren't they adorable? Little works of art. I just love that hedgie!





And she even included a birthday card for me--I love the little peephole! Thank you so much, Jie Ying!



Lastly, here's a card that I made with Penny Black's Magical Mimi. I used pastels for a different look and colored the image with Copics. Her dress and the mushrooms were popped up with dimensional adhesive.

Reverse Wonky Rectangles were used for the card base, and I embossed the frame with Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots embossing folder.

I applied some Glossy Accents to the bee, butterfly, and ladybug, and some Diamond Stickles to Mimi's wings. The sentiment is from Nina Brackett's Heartily Yours Additions.


Thanks, always, for stopping by! See you soon!
