CASEing Penny Black

Penny Black has come out with some fun stuff for this new year.  I am teaching a class using 2 of her new stamps and for one of the cards I decided to CASE Penny Black.  The first time I saw the card it was in the catalog.  The next time I saw the card it was on the back of the die I was using which made it very convenient CASEing Penny Black.

CASEing Penny Black Card Recipe

I started by stamping Awaken in Versamark Ink on white card stock and heat embossing the image in brown embossing powder.  Using the masking pen, I covered the image with the masking fluid.  Once it dried, I used Tim Holtz Oxide Distress Ink to ink the background.  I also stamped Delicate and Dainty in Pine from Hero Arts.  Once all my inking and stamping was done, I used an eraser to remove the masking.  I wasn’t really happy with the results because there was still blue from the masking fluid left behind.  Covering it up was a challenge.  Using colored pencils, I colored in the shaded areas in brown and yellow until I liked the way it looked.  Green was used to color the stems.  Kraft card stock was die cut using the new leaf edger die and inked the edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  I wrapped the seam with twine and used glue dots to adhere the twine.  Sentiment is stamped on vellum and heat embossed with Ranger Platinum and was cut into a flag shape.  It is from another Penny Black set.  This was all set on green card stock that had also been stamped with delicate and dainty.  If you look on the back of the leaf edger die you will see my inspiration.

I will be teaching how to make this card along with a card featuring Doggie Treat at Craft Inn if you’re in town and interested.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today.  Tune in tomorrow for another project.

Have a great day and enjoy the journey and some chocolate.


Luke 6:  24 – 26

“But woe to you who are rich,
    for you have already received your comfort.
25 Woe to you who are well fed now,
    for you will go hungry.
Woe to you who laugh now,
    for you will mourn and weep.
26 Woe to you when everyone speaks well of you,
    for that is how their ancestors treated the false prophets.
