Friendship Flowers


Penny Black is running a 2-week promotion, encouraging us to share what we've been working on this summer, stamp-wise!  It can be any theme you'd like to share, and any type of project, as long as you use at least 1 Penny Black stamp.  And of course there are prizes involved!  Click on the logo above to get all the details.  

As summer starts to move towards autumn, I want to get as many flower cards made as I can, to have on hand when something unexpected pops up.  Here's one that I made recently:

PB Friendship Flower

I used the Sweet Buds stamp for both the background and the main focus and added a few extra petals to my sentiment from the Friendship clear set.  I think this flower with heart blossoms looks good both ways, just stamped or colored in.  Here's a close-up of it with the blossoms popped up above the main image:

The Penny Black Stamp Squad are being featured today at the Penny Black blog, to promote their new Summer Fun stamp set.   Here's a peak at our cards:

  1. Gorgeous card Lin! I absolutely love how you repeated in in the background panel and the buds near the sentiment that look like they've just fallen off the bloom. Marvelous work!

  2. Those hydrangea blossoms are gorgeous!

  3. This is a sweet summer card Lin, love the pop of color and the fresh green!!

  4. Love your card, Lin! I especially love the flowers off the edge of your sentiment :)

  5. Gorgeous!! Love how you placed a couple of small flowers on the sentiment.

  6. Just beautiful Lin. Such a pretty card.

  7. Wow, that is some intense fussy cutting! ;) Love the coloring on the flowers, and the sweet color combo!
