Free For All Friday

Hey stamping friends, I’m starting a new thing on my blog on (most) Fridays…’s called Free For All Friday.  What is it? Well I’m going to share projects that don’t necessary use Stampin Up Products, some have some, some have none, you know, Contraband, haha….

Penny Black Poppy and Stampin Up Timeless Textures2 by Sandi @

This week I have a pretty big group of shares for you, some cards I made using Penny Black Stamps and the ZIG Watercolor Markers (you can learn more about where I got them here.)

And a PILE of cards I received recently from my stampin friends around the world, that’s the very cool part about being a Stampin Up Demonstrator and sharing on line, you do make a pile of friends all over the world.

So here you go – in no particular order, my FREE FOR ALL for this week:

Penny Black Poppy and Stencil card by Sandi @

If you follow me on Facebook or Pinterest you know that I’m a pretty big fan of Penny Black Stamps.  In particular the flower stamps.  I love to garden and the flower stamps from this company are very realistic. This is a poppy stamp with a coordinating stencil for the shadowed image, the background stamps are also Penny Black and I water colored this image with a retired Stampin UP Product, our Watercolor Wonder crayons…they rock!.

More Penny Black Stamps colored with Zig Markers, but all the card stock is Stampin UP…

Penny Black, Winter Song card by Sandi @

This is another Penny Black Stamp called Winter Song and again colored with the Zig Markers.  The stamped background is from Stampin UP Timeless Textures.

and this stamp is one of my favorites, I decided to use the Zig markers to color Icelandic Poppies….this is a cling mount stamp I have had for years I think it’s Penny Black and if you check out the background, I stamped them all again with the Stampin Up Timeless Textures Stamps
