Botanical Butterflies

Hi Creative Friends,

I was in the mood for a vintage-style botanical card design. I settled on using the beautiful Butterfly Charmer stamp by Penny Black for my butterflies. There are so many gorgeous butterflies in this collage-style stamp to choose from that it was a perfect choice.

Say Happy Birthday with Critters

Hi Creative Friends,

Today I am having a little birthday fun with adorable critters. I chose a couple of my favorites. One from the Cheerful Critters by Penny Black and the other from My Favorite Things Friends stamp set. I don’t think you can ever have enough birthday cards at the ready and I like to have a variety of styles of birthday cards so that I can find just the right one to suit my birthday recipient.

Pretty Pink Birthday

Hi Creative Friends,

I am loving all ways you can use the new ‘YOU‘ die from Penny Black. It is a fantastic die to have in your stash!

So, with that in mind, here is another card design using this die, along with sweet, French-style flowers from the Flower Medley stamp set by Penny Black and one of my favorite elements, a sentiment banner. I am always so enamored by banners; they are so easy to draw too! Give them a whirl!

But, if you are feeling a little intimidated by drawing a banner yourself, I have included a copy of the one I drew for this card. You can access it here or at the bottom of this post.

Hearts of Love

Hi Creative Friends,

Happy January 2023! Every January is the month I start thinking about Valentine’s Day and this year I am starting out with the cutest little hedgehog ever! This stamp is called ‘This One” and is from a collection by Penny Black hedgehogs. He is carrying a basket of hearts and he looks so delighted with them as he skips along. Take a look, you’ll see what I mean!

Happy Birthday To You

Hi Creative Friends,

Penny Black has some brand new stamps and dies that we were dying to give a try. To start, we used the giant “YOU” die for our centerpiece, then accompanied it with an adorable hedgehog from the Cheerful Critters stamp set and the Balloons die set for a super fun, but simple, card design that works great for male or female, young, or old!

Penguin Pals + video

Hi Creative Friends,

I am squeezing in another fun and wintery video. This one is highlighting the adorable little penguins in the Penguin Pals stamp and die set by Pretty Pink Posh. I don’t often make cute critters scenes but this one just spoke to me. It was a sheer delight (it really was!) to make this card. So much so, I had to make a video to share it with you.

Autumn Tree Leaves

Hi Creative Friends,

I know we have been featuring lots of holiday card designs but since it is still Autumn I decided to pay tribute to the stunning Fall colors and there is no better way to do that than to use a beautiful Penny Black stamp! Once again, I used the fountain of inspiration from Mimi’s Mimi A La Carte Facebook account for this card.

The stamp is called Winter Still. The title is a little confusing to me but nonetheless, it features glorious leaves and the Always Thankful sentiment stamp set is just too perfect not to use!
