Tags with Penny Black Stamps

I'm still playing with my new PB stamps. I have been working on some tags. They took longer than I thought - since I am stamping, colouring, and then cutting out the images to adhere to the tag. But I am happy with how they turned out.
I used oatmeal cardstock from Wplus9 for the tags (also from Wplus9-die). I liked the look of the oatmeal cardstock - more suitable for the Garden Critters stamp set I used than the white. I distressed the edges with TH Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
Edit: Oops, forgot to add that I used Copics on Neenah solar white card stock for my images. I used Memento Tuxedo Black to stamp the images.
I also made a box to hold all 7 tags.  Distressed the edges and slipped on a bow to hold it together.
I am entering my tags in Moxie Fab World's Gift Tag Challenge.

Here they are:

And the box:

 The sentiments are from various stamp sets - Paper Smooches, Hero Arts, and Wplus9.

I decided to change the bow and twine on this hedgie one - didn't get a new picture before packing it in the box.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

New Penny Black stamps

I won some stamps from Penny Black's new release and I just love them! When I saw this week's sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch, I knew exactly what stamps I would use! Since I need a new card for my sister's birthday, I thought this would be perfect.

I love the flow of this sketch.

The adorable bunny image is from the new Penny Black Garden Critters. I stamped them on some Neenah Solar White cardstock, coloured them with my Copics and cut the images out. I stamped several more butterflies and coloured and cut them out too. The sentiment is from another of their new stamp sets - Nature's Wishes. I added a few Copic-coloured gems to finish it off. No sentiment was needed for the sketch, but I felt I needed one on the card. :)
I am also entering my card in Penny Black's For Family Challenge (which ends on the 19th!)

Penny Black For Family Challenge

Penny Black is having a For Family Challenge. Details can be found here.

I made this card originally for my sister's birthday, but decided to give it to my mother-in-law for her birthday. She works in the garden a lot and I liked this card better than the card I made for her. I used the adorable Penny Black stamp 1649k Mice Mail Letter.  I stamped it on Neenah Solar white cardstock, coloured it with Copics and cut it out. I stamped it again on the card base and then adhered the coloured image. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Paper Smooches.

I am also entering my card in:
CAS-ual Fridays 100th challenge! I choose Birthday, Bling and Punches/Dies (I hope a corner chomper counts as a punch!)


Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
