Puzzle Parts

Today I have a card featuring new stamps from Penny Black. If you visit the Penny Black blog you can find several days of posts showcasing  new releases.

This card is very simple as the clever patterns in the transparent Puzzle Parts set make it  easy to create elegant backgrounds and borders. I always like navy and white as they remind me of Delft china but I am looking forward to trying all kinds of colour schemes with these stamps. The sentiment is from the new set, Word Express, which has over fifty stamps to combine for a personal greeting.

May your day be simple and elegant.

    Hi Heather. I love the way you’ve put this together and left a space for the sentiment and I agree about the delft tile look. I can’t wait to see what else you do with the set!

    As the card says: “WONDERFUL”.
    A great idea of using these stamps. I never would have thought of it.
    When I see the complete sheet I only would have used them as a border.
    The white and blue fits perfectly in Holland, it reminds of Delfts Blue, which is famous all over the world as souvenirs (cup, tiles, vases, ceramics….)
    Its obvious I think: “I love it”.

    Thank you — you have now completely justified my recent purchase of a Paris dusk ink spot, as it looks fabulous here with white. 🙂 What a perfect use of the new PB set.
    And in other news, congrats on joining Susan’s OLW team! You are, of course, the perfect addition.

    Love the way you’ve put these stamps together Heather, the design reminds me of a beautiful old fashioned napkin:)
