Just for You

Before we get started this morning, I'd like to refer you back to THIS POST.   Simon Says Stamp has just offered a $100.00 gift certificate to someone who sends Maddy a card!  Please help us get as many cards to Maddy as possible!

Good morning, and Happy Weekend!  I'm just popping in today to share a sunny card using Penny Black stamps.

Just for You

There are so many things that can be done with this Every Happiness cling set, but for this card, I used just one of the many panels included in it.  I stamped it in VersaMark ink and white embossed it, then colored in the details with markers.   I've been drawn to sunny yellows lately - they exude cheer!  Next I stamped the sentiment around it in black, and "stitched" around the embossed area with a fine black marker.   The stamped panel was trimmed out and thinly framed with black cardstock, and attached to a larger panel from the Madison Designer paper pad, also framed in black. To finish,  I added a gingham ribbon and a tiny punched butterfly.

Thanks for visiting me - I hope I've brightened your day!

  15. Sunny is an understatement - this is glowing! I am not a fan of yellow, but you have used it brilliantly (ha). This is sweet to the max, Lin.

  17. Lin, this one is stunning! I had to really read to see what you had done -- on my screen, it almost looks like letterpress instead of heat embossing… At any rate, the coloring is divine… I'm sooo with you on these sunny yellows lately! (though, if you'd asked me two years ago, I'd have told you yellow was my least favorite color! :)
