Penny Black-Simple Card Set

The Penny Black Blog featured a tutorial by Jill Foster on Simple stamping. I love simple stamping!! So I watched Jill's video, then off to my craft room for some fun. Picked some bright colorful leftover pieces of card stock for the front panels. The stamps are all by Penny Black. I wanted these images to really pop so I used a pigment ink for stamping. This ink is Chocolate Chip by SU. I used a heat tool to dry it so I could put the cards together quickly. All 5 of these cards were done in no time at all. I did use a touch of a white pastel pencil on a couple of the images but that is all. Just stamped and assembled the layers. Makes me want to get started on Christmas gifts. I am posting a close up of each card below.

Thank you Penny Black and Jill for the reminder that Simple Stamping is  a wonderful option!
