Card, Penny Black

Penny Black: Spring Flower Cards using Copic Coloring

by May Park-

Hi, crafty friends! Today I’m sharing some clean and simple cards that I made for Penny Black Simplicity. I felt kind of bored making Christmas cards lately. So I decided to take a break from it and creating some springy cards instead. Here is what I came up with:


I first stamped the big flower image from Blooming Garden(30-155) on the bottom right side using Memento Tuxedo black ink. Then I kept stamping the small flowers along the edges of  card base until I was happy with the oval frame. After that, I colored the images with Copics and finished off the card with the sentiment from Foliage Fancy(30-138).


This is my second card using same theme. This time I tried to create a rectangular frame around the flowers. I used the sentiment from Social Butterfly(30-116). Which card do you like? Hope you love at least one of them. 😉


To be honest, this was my first try. I wanted to use orange color mainly for my card after I saw the beautiful inspiration photo from Runway Inspired challenge #74. I’m not pleased with how it turned out, but I still want to share with you. What do you think?

By the way, these are the stamp sets that I used for my card. Please click the image above to see more details. Well, that’s all I have today. Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy crafting!header

    I agree, all are gorgeous but the orange is my favorite too! I love the use of bank space to create the rectangle.
