Penny Black Stickers - Eight Cards

I've had two packages of Penny Black stickers for a few years now. Just before my mom went into the hospital, I was supposed to have the week off from babysitting. This is what I had started on - using up those stickers. It's been on hold for nearly three months, but I finished them off. You get all of them in one day, since they are all relatively similar. I will briefly comment on each of them.

The stamp on this first one is from Rubbernecker. I stamped and matted with Midnight Muse ink and cardstock.
 The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and is stamped in Soft Suede ink.
 Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and is stamped in Soft Suede. The butterfly is from Penny Black, also. The sticker panel is matted with white and mounted on foam squares.
 Sentiment from Kaiser Craft and is stamped in Midnight Muse.
 Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and is stamped in Midnight Muse. The entire panel is mounted on foam squares.
 I scored the lines around the image with my Martha Stewart scoring board. The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday and is stamped in Soft Suede.
 Sentiment is from Kaiser Craft and is stamped in Midnight Muse. This is the only card on white. The rest are ivory. The image panel is mounted on foam squares.
Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and is stamped with Soft Suede. I cut the line across from the sheet with the stickers. The butterfly is also from the same package.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

These cards are absolutely stunning--not only the stickers, but how you used them!

So pretty! I had/have those stickers as well! Of course you know I have to tell you my favorite. The best wishes with the butterfly wins my vote this time!

Oh. My. Gosh. These are all amazing! The stickers are totally gorgeous and you used them in such a way as to really show them off. I've had some prints for years that I've never made into cards. What a beautiful gallery of cards you've shown us today, Lynette. Love every one of them!

Everyone of your cards are so beautiful! I never would have guessed that you used stickers as your main images.Love the scoring that you did and the layers. I'm so glad that you are getting time to finish up your cards. How great that you have a stack of lovely Birthday cards to send out as you need them. :)

Lynette, the other gals already shared my sentiments...stickers? Really? I would never have guessed...they are stunning! My favorite is the middle one with the frame of score lines! Thanks for all you shared today...I will look at stickers MUCH differently!

All of these cards are very pretty! I still have some of them too and you have certainly inspired me to pull them out again to make some cards.
