Sweet Slumber

A Sweet Treat from Penny Black

I saw this stamp at my favorite Stamp Store - Stamp Works. It's called Sweet Slumber by Penny Black. I wanted to buy it but there was a class that was using this stamp for one of the cards they were making that same day. head hung low....and I had to leave that day without it :( I told Nic (the owner) that if she had one left after the class it was mine! Well, lucky me...cause she had one left and it's mine now! LOL

So here is the first card I made with it. I'm really happy with how it turned out.


  • Image stamped on SU Whisper White with Black Stazon

  • Colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.

  • Cards Base Bazzill Black and SU Real Red and Whisper White

  • Stamped Pattern Stamp from SU Petite Designs with Black Colorbox Pigment Ink on Real Red CS then embossed with clear.

  • I also used used a Silver Metalic Marker from American Crafts on the candy wrappers and then colored over that a little with a glitter pen.

  • The red on top of the candies is colored with Red Spica Glitter Pen. I also ran the Clear Spica Glitter Pen down the stripes of the candy box and on the bow.

  • "Be Mine" on the tag is from a CTMH set called All My Love.

I'm going to make another card...of course! I want to try with more pinks and glitter. :)

(added note 2/14/08 -- I gave this card to Michaela for Valentine's Day. She really loved it!)
