Fun Friday Collabo, Week 2!

Fun Friday

Happy Friday!!

Back again for another collaboration with Jill Foster! This week we are both using the Penny Black Sweet Home Stamp Set. Enabling alert: It’s 20% off at Ellen Hutson now! See details below.

There are so many different scenes you can create with this set. Here’s my card for this week:

Fun Friday

I have a friend who is moving out of state, so this is a perfect card for her! Here are the basic steps for creating this card:

So how did I get the heart in the window? Stamp the sentiment, color the heart, and stamp the house on top of it so the heart is in the window. Cut the heart and glue to the house.

Don’t forget that Jill and I will be featuring YOUR cards on our blogs June 7th. To be considered, create your own card with the same set we are using and upload it to the Penny Circle Flickr gallery. Be sure to tag it with “JillDarlene”.

One more thing before you go… Ellen Hutson is having a special 20%-off-everything-Mother’s-Day sale! Use code momsday13 at checkout, now through Monday. This set, Tiger Lily, Copics ($4.80/marker!), EVERYTHING! So awesome. And I guess I should also mention that Two Peas in a Bucket is having 25% off all stamps until 5/16. 612 of them. Wow, a great weekend for mothers!!!

Now, head on over to Jill’s blog to see what she has created with Sweet Home. I know it will be fabulous, as always!!

Have a great weekend!

    Love your card!! We’re moving this summer & I’ve been in search of a stamp set to create “we’re moving here’s our new address” cards. This is perfect!

    Darlene, I LOVE the card, it’s sweet, and adorable, and your coloring is just lovely….but….where’s the video? OMGosh, I was so looking forward to the video.
    (In a child’s whining voice…”I wanted a video, I wanted a video!”)
    Whew, okay now that is off my chest. LOL LOL
    I really love the card, Darlene. I am sorry your friend is moving away. I know that feeling, it’s sad.

    Wonderful to see what you two can create. Wish is was a video, though (always wanting more!). And Ellen Hudson’s site is terrific.

    Thanks for sharing.
