Penny Black Inc. Challenges!! =)

Pin It

I wanted to play along with the challenges over on the Penny Black Inc. Blog this week!! Let me tell you having a newborn makes it pretty hard to get things done when there is a short time frame, but I made it just barely!! =)
I LOVED the fun challenges and used some of my new FAVORITE stamp set just released by them!! I made three of the cards using the Sweet As Honey Stamp Set and then I made one using the Fairy Sweet Stamp Set which has the sweetest little fairies on it!! LOVE!! =) Anyway, here are my takes on the different challenges!! =)  I water colored everything using Faber-Castell Aquarelle Pencils and Gelatos and then used different glitters for a touch of sparkle on each card!! SO MUCH FUN to create!!  Here they all are!!
CHALLENGE: Join our designers and create something that focuses on fussy cutting, using punches and die cuts!

Challenge: Join us and create a card with some sort of interactive element (pocket, slider, even a shaker card).
I made a FUN Magnet frame for my mother fridge for her Birthday!! I was inspired by the card that was created and shared on the Penny Black Inc. blog and thought it would be fun to try!! I made a
3-D flower frame in the color of my moms kitchen and I think this will look great holding her grocery list!! =)

I used the dots in spaceDots in Space background stamp along with
sweet as honeySweet as Honey!!  LOVE these Stamp sets!!

I used Fairy Sweet for this Cute card and watercolored it using Faber-Castell Aquarelle Pencils and Gelatos!! =) I LOVE the way it turned out!! I then fussy cut the image out and added it to the front of my card!!
