Birthday Trellis

Did you know today is THE day.......yes you can now see all the AMAZING, oh and did I say WONDERFUL new stamps in the Penny Black Take Flight catalog.  Prepare to be amazed and arm yourself with a pencil and a big piece of paper as I think you  wish list is going to be VERY long.   Where can you see all these beauties?  Just hop on over to the Penny Black Blog here where you can see the full catalog.

Now if you have calmed yourselves after all that excitement, I want to tell you about a die that Spellbinders brought a while ago, it is this wonderful Fancy Lattice die and my first thought was that it would make a marvellous trellis for flowers to climb up on a card. The Roses are from Penny Black's Bed of Roses 40-190 stamp and have been coloured with alcohol pens and cut out.

I then added the Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio that had been stamped with the To You 30-067 transparent set and some ribbon that I found in a JoAnne's sale bin!   Some diamond stickles was then added to the roses and some Cantaloupe Liquid Pearls to the flower centres. To add a little bit extra I stamped the envelope with Memento Pear Tart ink.

Thank you for visiting me today and for all your wonderful comments, I would love to hear what your new favourite stamps are from Penny Black, I have to confess to loving them ALL!

Hugs Cathy

The roses look super with the trellis & I love the envelope. The yellow flower centres really complement the little yellow flowers superbly too.
Field of Poppies closely followed by Butterfly Symphony - if I had to choose one it would be the latter for I've not seen anything at all like it.

Love that card Cathy - you colours are perfect! I dare not go and look at the catalogue - I would be divorced I think if I even started making a list - someone who shall be nameless thinks I have too much already....

Oh yes, huge wishlist for sure! I think I really need the new catalog--so many fabulous samples. Your card is gorgeous! Love that lattice die & you used it perfectly here.
