Penny Black "Sparkles 40-625" Heart Christmas Card


Another Christmas card, this time using a selection of products from different manufacturers.

For the hanging heart,  I have used one of the Penny Black baubles from their "Sparkles 40-625" slapstick/cling stamp set, stamped and coloured in "Festive Berries" Distress Oxide Ink.  I gave it some brush strokes of "A Wink of Stella" to give it a lovely gold shimmer to the surface.

I used "Shadow Grey" Ranger Archival Ink through the Sweet Poppy Stencils "Holly Backplate". 

I mounted the card on to a piece of red card and then on to a white card blank, finally adding the  sentiment of "All I want for Christmas is you", which is part of a Simon Says Stamp set called "Tiny Words - Christmas", stamped in Versfine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.


  1. This looks wonderful in red and grey Sam, and the heart with the brush strokes and shimmery finish works well with the soft grey holly stencilled in the background...the perfect sentiment too...this is obviously a card for someone special I think..lol. x

  2. Simply stunning Sam, love the gorgeous PB stamp and the way it worked out loving the colours you used too x
