My New Shop is OPEN!!!

Hello everyone! I have some very exciting news to share today, and a new card too!

Last month I decided to quit my part time job due to personal reasons, but since I am not one that can find enjoyment in doing nothing, I decided to open up my own little Etsy shop selling some of my favorite stamp designs.



As you may have guessed from my logo above, I am currently only selling stamp designs by Penny Black. You can visit my shop by clicking the link above, or simply type TimelessStamps4You in the Etsy search field. 

My first shipment just arrived a couple days ago, and I spent the day yesterday getting the shop ready.
I am currently only shipping to the US, due to the high shipping cost overseas, and lack of tracking once the shipment leaves the United States. 

Of course I had to get inky with one of the newest Penny Black stamps, and one of my new favorites
Winter Song. The stamp is currently available in my shop.




This is a very large stamp, and so beautiful! I did have a little bit trouble stamping it, due to the size, but after a couple tries I was happy with it. It was best to use it without the acrylic block, and simply laying the card stock over the stamp and then apply pressure with hands. 

The card was very simple to create. After stamping I simply inked the edges with turquoise ink, and adhered to the black background. The bird was stamped separately and colored with alcohol markers. Added glitter to the snowy parts on the bottom portion and finished off with some punched snowflakes. The sentiment is from an older stamp set.


Product list:
Winter Song - Penny Black, sentiment - maker unknown
broken china distress ink, memento black ink
Recollections 110lb white card stock, SU black card stock
brads, glitter
