Penny Black On The Lake

Penny Black On The Lake

I have for you today a card made with the Penny Black On The Lake stamp.  Penny Black makes gorgeous stamps, and I have had this stamp for many months and not used it.  I was not sure if I could make a nice card with it.  I decided to take a chance and see what I could create with it.  I think I made a beautiful card featuring the Penny Black On The Lake stamp.

I wanted to use fall colors to create the card, so I used several Stampin’ Up!’s (SU) inks (i.e., pads and markers).

Luke 10:18-20

Jesus said: “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.  I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy: nothing will harm you.  However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”

Lawn Fawn Happy Harvest

Hello, my friends!!  Thanks for stopping by!  It has been over two weeks since I last posted as I have been participating in a Splitcoaststampers Falliday Fest 2016.  I will share more on that in my next several posts.  Today’s card share is a response to a Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge.  The talented Mary (MaryR917) hosted the color challenge, CC603, “Real Honey w/ a Crazy Olive Twist”.  The colors she chose are Stampin’ Up!’s Real Red, Hello Honey, Cajun Craze, Old Olive, and Tangelo Twist.  My card for the challenge features the Lawn Fawn Happy Harvest Dies

Lawn Fawn Happy Harvest

My card is a Center Step Card.  I used all five of the colors, blending them where needed. I added another color, blue, for the sky.  I initially planned to only have the scene on the middle section of the step card.  But after finishing the image, I decided to extend it to both sides. That was a difficult challenge, but I carefully laid two pieces of white card stock together, did some measuring to determine where each color started and stopped, and then began sponging on colors.  I think I matched it up nicely!


A tutorial for a Center Step card is on my site HERE.  Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
