A Stamp is for all year not just for Christmas

I love a stamp that is versatile, and that can be used for several occasions, so I thought I would share a Christmas Amaryllis design that I have made as a card for any event. I have used the beautiful Penny Black Collage Stamp, Floral Story 4210K available here . The flowers were stamped 12 times onto Rose Garden 14-001 mix and match card stock available here.



I then coloured each flower with Copics RV21, RV23, RV13, RV 14 & RV19.  The highlighting on the petals was added with a white gel pen and the flowers then cut out. The flowers were layered using dimensional glue and pearl stamens added.

The sentiment from the Penny Black clear set To you 30-067 available here, was stamped onto white card, cut out with a spellbinders circle die and distressed with Candy Floss Ink. The flowers were then glued around the edge of the the circle.
This was then mounted onto Fern Green Mix and Match Card Stock 05-003 available here cut using a grand nestabilities die (thank you Gill for lending these to me - they are now high on my wish list), and double mounted and stitched onto Rose Garden Mix and match card 14-001 also cut with a spellbinders grand nestabilities circle die.  Here is a close up of the flowers.


Thanks for joining me again today, if you would like to see more collage design ideas from the Penny Black Design team then hop on over to the Penny Black blog here. Have a wonderful weekend, hugs Cathy x
