Penny Black Week at Stamper's Dream


It's Penny Black week at Stamper's Dream, and Michelle has a fabulous supply of charming Penny Black images. This whole week, the DT will be sharing projects made with some of the images. I made a card with this cute and chubby snowman called Sweet Snowman (PB). I stamped him with Versamark onto watercolor paper, and embossed him with Detail Black ep. I then colored him with my Tombow markers. I added some Polar White Flower Soft to the stocking cap and snow underneath him, and ink distressed the edges with Frayed Burlap (Ranger Distress Ink). The Martha Stewart Border punched top has Ultrafine Glitter added to it with a Quickie Glue pen, and the adorable little snowballs along the top are called Glitter Domes (Mark Richards). I got them at a fabulous little Scrapbook store in Oakhurst, California called The Cat's Meow. It's a bit of a drive for me, but I went with my dear friend Pat, so the time just flew by. And the cat's there give you the warmest welcome. As did Melissa. She has a fabulous blog HERE.

I got the ribbon from a charming Scrapbook store in Missoula, MT called Memory Lane, and the buttons are PTI. Finally, I used some Ivory Burlap String to tie the buttons to the ribbon.

That sums up my card for today. Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has to show you. Here's the schedule:
