One stamp, two cards

Good morning fellow Bloggers, I hope all is well with you and your families...hugs

It's dull and overcast here in the Derby area, but still quite warm and the evenings seem to be very sticky this week!

I was looking for something in my craftroom, as you do, and came across this 2006 Penny Black stamp which hasn't seen ink for quite a while so I thought it was time to resurrect it. I love it because it is such a happy image :o)


It was very strong sunlight when I took the pic of the second one (last week, not seen the sun since!) so it looks a bit bleached!
Both basecards are my usual white linencard from The Range, folded and cut to just undar 6x6 and 7x5 respectively.
I stamped the image with Memento ink onto 160gsm smooth white card from Staples, coloured with Copics then cut with Spellbinders dies (first card) and Die-namics dies (second card)
Blue card is a pearlised bit from the scrap box. Grey card is Papermania textured card
Both sentiments are cling stamps with no name.
I added a dash of Glamour Dust to the white images but it doesn't show up here!
Tiny stars are wast from a border die.
Both cards intentionally CAS :o)

Yes, it is a very sweet image and it made me say to myself...ahhhhhh! I find it hard to take pics with a lot of white on the card. I can't use the sun as my problem...Im not good...haha Anyhow, thanks for pulling up a wonderful "oldie but goodie" for me to enjoy.

Lovely snowmen cards Jackie, never seen them before, really cute. Love the two before two, was going to buy the snowman with the big hat but never got round to it. Been a horrible week of rain here and rather chilly at night, heating been on as house just too cold for my liking! Carol xx

I spent all yesterday afternoon tidying my stash, trying to find a missing stamp set ... now have tidy stash and still no sign of the missing set and absolutely no clue where it could be. Grrr.
