Penny Black Stamp Squad Blog Hop


Welcome to the first ever Penny Black Stamp Squad Blog Hop!  I'm so excited to be starting things off today.  If you saw my announcement on Thursday you know I love Penny Black quote stamps.  My card showcases "moment of joy" inked with 2 Memento markers--Danube Blue & Lady Bug.  The printed papers are from Penny Black's Madison designer paper pad.  I glued 2 patterns together to make my double-sided papers for the pinwheels.  Aren't they fun?  Next up is Lin's blog & I know you won't want to miss it.  Be sure to leave a comment on each blog, including the Penny Black blog, for a chance to win some Penny Black stamps.  If you get lost, the complete list of today's blogs can be found HERE.  Enjoy the hop!

  35. Ohhh! I LOVE pinwheels! What kind of adhesive did you use to adhere your paper together? It is so seamless and perfect. The times that I have tried adhering patterned papers together it bubbled and wrinkled when I tried to fold and work with it.
    Thanks,

    1. Thanks for your sweet comment, Valerie. I can't find a way to contact you, so I'll leave the answer here. I just used Inkssentials Collage glue stick by Ranger. These particular PB papers may have something to do with why it worked so easily.
