Penny Black Christmas Cards

Hello everyone.

Today I put some of my handmade cards into cellophane wrappers with envelopes, ready to sell - Phew!  I didn't realise how many cards that I actually have!!  - Lesson learnt.....in future when I make a card put it straight into cellophane instead of spending half the day doing it!

On to today's cards:

I bought this Hedgie stamp second hand a while ago and it was heavily stained so it didn't stamp clearly. I tried some Stampin Up! Stazon Cleaner on it and now it's stamps perfectly :)

Items used: 1.
Penny Black Snowscape 4203K
Anita's Classic Christmas Blue papers
DigiStamp Boutique sentiment
Glamour Dust
Charm and ribbon from stash
Penny Black Xmas Kiss 2754H
Pink Petticoat sentiment
Kaisercraft Christmas papers
SB Nesties
XCut ovals (must treat myself to SB ovals as they don't quite match up)
ribbon from stash

So that's 2 Christmas cards to add to my stash thanks to The Rudolph Day challenge.
As the second card is CAS I will also enter Simon Says Stamp Blog Challenge.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today and TTFN.


  1. Hi Eve - thank you for joining in with RUDOLPH DAY with these 2 beautiful Christmas makes. Can't beat a cute PB Hedgie can you? Glad you got him cleaned up and stamping properly.

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  2. Oh such gorgeous cards Eve! I bought some 'pre-loved' Penny Black stamps not long ago and almost wept at the terrible state they were in - coated with layers and layers of ink. Like you I used Stayzon and they stamp beautifully now.

    Hugs, Di xx

  3. These cards are beautiful. The image is colored beautifully and so cute. Love the sparkle and the designs! Thanks so much for joining us at the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Blog! :)

  4. Hi Eve, just found your pretty cards over at Rudolph Day. Joined as your newest follower & hope you'll find time to visit me as well. If so, then you'll find I love Hedgies too. He's a cutie here and I'm so glad the cleaner made this little fella stamp out much better for you. Love the way you have done the background on #1 winter scene. Loved that image too, and all the cool & brrry sparkle that created such an icy feel to the card. TFS & Hugs. Hope to see you again at Rudy Day.

  5. Two beautiful cards! Love the sparkle ont he first and the adorable hedgie on the second!

  6. 2 gorgeous cards. I love the little touches - the glitter and the ribbon -
    that makes them extra special.
    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment about the loss
    of my little Suzie. I really appreciate it.
