Please Note: Yesterday's post included photos of a Treat Box and I neglected to attribute the box idea to Michelle Rodgers' blog on www.stampersdream. I am very sorry for this oversight as Michelle is a friend and a wonderful stamper.
Penny Black Rubber Stamps is well known for beautiful flower designs which have long been offered in wood mounted rubber stamps. Recently, the company began re-issuing the original designs in slightly smaller versions in clear stamp sets. This is a idea because now you can enjoy the same design but use it in different ways due to the smaller scale. This week the company issued more clear stamp sets and two wood mounted stamps -- some of which are flowers and others are cute little critters! Let me show you the new release. All are in stock right now but I don't expect them to last long.
The "enjoy" set (above right) was one I used for a class recently so here are the samples I made using that set:
In addition to stamps, Penny Black also issues the designs as beautifully colorful stickers. I am teaching a class on Saturday, May 23 (10am to noon) that combines a set of these stickers with stamps to create several creative cards. let me share with you the samples for that class. I hope you will want to come!
This set has wonderful sentiments and creative background stamps. I have used it several times already -- look at the tag on this birthday card. This card was copied from one Sharon Johnson posted on her blog. It uses an Inkadinkado bird stamp and Sublime paper from KaiserCraft. The tag is die cut with a ribbon tag from Spellbinders.
