Penny Black and More - November

This post includes some affiliate links, meaning I may earn a small commission if you purchase something through the links, this is at no cost to you! Thank you so much for your support! 

It's the first Sunday of the month, that means it's time for a new challenge at Penny Black and More. Christmas is getting closer and so for this month we could like to see Christmas Cards and All Things Christmas. Several wonderful prizes are up for grabs so hopefully you'll find some time to join us. The challenge runs until the end of the month so there is definitely plenty of time!

If you're not into making your own Christmas cards, you can also make gift tags, gift wrap or anything else, as long as your focal point of interest includes rubber or clear stamping your creation is good to go!


I created a background using a circle die cut to mask the moon and some torn printer paper for the hills along with  Broken China Distress Oxide ink. The die cut trees were done with Penny Black's Beneath the Birches die set slightly inked with Pumice Stone Distress Oxide

The cute critter is from Penny Black's stamp set Holly Jolly Critters. It's just a set of 2 stamps - a row of 4 critters and a sentiment. I used only one of the critters from the row, heat embossed using Versafine Clair Ink and clear embossing powder, colored with Distress Inks and then fussy cut using my Cutterbee scissors. I used a Sakura Stardust glitter pen on the star, scarf and head gear to make them sparkle.

The sentiment from my favorite Penny Black Christmas sentiment Set Season's Gifts was also heat embossed right over the moon. I used a kraft paper background for my card front, then 110lb heavyweight card stock from Michaels.

  1. It's a really pretty Wintry card Ellie, the cool blues work really well and you have even picked up the sparkle on your photo, not easy! I think that die is one I might need and rather drawn to the sentiment as well.
