Penny Black Collage Card


Hello! I am so happy it's Friday! I have a card to share with you today that I created in one of my very favorite styles, collage. I love to sit and cut stuff out, so I usually have lots of little pieces of things in bags etc. So for this card, I took out my little bags of stuff with Penny Black products all cut up in them and played around with different combinations until I got something I liked.



Before I started gluing everything down, using the Hypnotic stencil, I stenciled some soft lavender ink on the card to give it just a subtle background. I then glued down the tag shape with foam tape, then added everything else, tucking the leaves in underneath the flower.  The butterfly was added last with foam tape.


I stamped the For You in a lavender color to go with my mostly purplish hues on the card, then added a few clear 4mm PPP sequins.

Everything I used for this card is listed and linked below!

  1. Beautiful work, Kay! I really like the gentle feel of this card. Those purples sure work well together. And that one leafy stem with all the different colors is very unique in a lovely way. It sure adds great interest to the otherwise monochromatic card. Such pretty stamps! Generally, how long would you say you fiddle around before you come up with a design you like? I'm sure it totally depends, but what would you "guesstimate?" It's definitely worth your time as you create beautiful cards! Happy Friday and happy hugs! :)

  17. Such a pretty card and I love the idea of having a supply of accents cut out and ready to use... I have divided storage bins ready to do the same thing - just need to make / take the time to do it and enjoy playing. Thanks for sharing and have a great day!
