Penny Black Guest Designer!

I'm so honored to be Penny Black blog's guest designer today!  If you have followed my blog at all, you know how much I adore their entire line of stamps, so when I was invited to be a guest designer, I was so excited to jump on that opportunity.  7Kids College Fund has a great selection of Penny Black stamp sets for purchase -  check this link to see Tab's selection!

I created several cards and a Christmas coaster banner to share today.  All my projects (except the first one) are showcased on the Penny Black blog today, but Jenyfur gave me the okay to share all of them on my blog here as well - so get ready for a blog post with lots of photos! 

Here are the stamp sets I used to create all my cards - I haven't been able to find a couple of the sets available for purchase online yet.  I'll come back and link them once I find them.
  • Card 2: Birthday Wish 3669F & Sweet Thing 4084H  (wood block stamps)
  • Card 1 & 3: To You 
  • Christmas Coaster Banner: Mimi's Christmas
  • Card 4: Mimi's Christmas
