Flowers and Dies using Penny Black Stamps

Happy Monday and thanks so much for visiting! It's time to share some well overdue Penny Black stamps creations. One was made for our Midmonth reminder at Penny Black and More, where our theme is "Dies and Punches".

It's the Mother's Day card, I made for my Mother-in-Law, and since I wanted to use it for today's post, I didn't share it earlier.
The stamp I used here  is called "Demure" and is available in my Etsy *stamp* shop. For my dies and punches I used a nestabilities die set, and I  a MS butterfly punch. I embellished with sticky pearls and gold glitter. The embossing was done using a cuttlebug embossing folder. Sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.

  (I used pearls, flowers, embossing)

Up next is a quick card I created using the stamp set Sprigs.
I used distress markers to color directly onto the stamp, lightly spritzed with water and stamped it onto cream colored fabriano watercolor paper. Stamped the sentiment and finished off by adding glitter to the flower centers and some sequins.
