Penny Black Blog Hop








Hip, hip, hooray!  Welcome to the first ever Penny Black Stamp Squad blog hop

Not only are we hopping, we're giving away stamps, too!  Leave a comment on each blog, including the Penny Black blog, for a chance to win a selection of Penny Black stamps.


You should have arrived here from Judy's blog. To start at the beginning of the hop, click here.



So excited to be a part of the Penny Black team and to spend this Saturday with you!

This card was selected as a Favorite of the Week at Splitcoast Stampers

So .....  let's make a card...




I just love how white embossing looks on Kraft paper, don't you?

I stamped Kisses in the Sun on to two panels of Kraft card stock measured 4 x 5 1/4 inches each. I then cut the second panel into three pieces, matted them in white, then attached to base card with glue and foam adhesive. 

The sentiment is from the Friendship Transparent set, stamped and heat set with White embossing powder.



Cut White Ultra Thick card stock to 4 1/4 x 11 inches, fold in half. Adhere Kraft panel.
Stamped and heat embossed just the butterfly on a scrap of Kraft card stock, fussy cut and adhered to card front.
Add faux pearls and pearl hat pins for a finishing touch.

Hop along and meet the rest of the Stamp Squad.
