Happy Heart Day – Penny Black Release, Blog Hop & Giveaway!

It’s a “Party with Penny!”  You’re invited to join in the fun over the next several days as Penny Black reveals their newest collection of stamps and dies, Happy Heart Day which are now available at the Penny Black Online Store!

Penny Black is kicking off the party with a blog hop!  And you should have arrived here from the Penny Black Blog where you can also head for a complete list of all the blog hop participants.

I have 2 cards to share with you today and it doesn’t get any simpler than this first one!  I had grand plans for this card (which were nothing like it turned out lol) but it happened and I’m not going to fight that.  This little Fairy Love is too cute for a ‘fight’ lol.

and for some reason she ended up leaning on the Love die cut quite happily.

My second design is a game of ‘Nought’s and Crosses’ using the Stitched XOXO and some cute critters from the Happy Hugs Stamp Set.

I added a simple (but perfect) sentiment from the Lovable Stamp Set heat embossed on black cardstock.

  9. What adorable cards!! The first one is simple but so cute and the birds playing tic tac toe made me laugh! Great cards!!

  10. Therese, you are right about your first card with the little fairy girl leaning on the diecut “thanks”. It needs nothing more. It’s perfectly adorable & CAS, which I’m totally into. That X & O die is wonderful too. Thanks for sharing your creativity!

  11. As always, your coloring is amazing. I love the layout on both cards, too. Thanks for sharing your talent.

  12. Oh my goodness! That fairy is so precious! Love the tic-tac-toe card, too. Thanks for the inspiration. 😀

  13. The nought and crosses card (tic-tac-toe) to me is so cute and my favorite though the fairy card is adorable as well.

  14. As always both cards are gorgeous especially the little fairy so cheeky, your creativity simply amazes me. Terrific new collection by Penny Black … Thank you for sharing.

  15. Adorable cards! I was expecting some cute critters, but your Fairy Love card is so wonderful. Have to take a better look at this stamp set!

  16. These are such cute cards! I love the placement of the little girl in the corner on the first one, the composition is just perfect!

  17. Absolutely adorable cards, Therese! I LOVE the little girl resting her elbows on the sentiment…so cute!!!

  18. OMG both your cards are so Flippin ADORABLE!!! I can’t believe how the simple card gives the biggest WOW! Thanks for sharing 😊😊😊😊

  19. Loved both the cards, though I have a soft corner for the second card with brilliant use of XOXO and cute critters.

  20. Therese, you are so disciplined to keeping your designs clean and simple but this is a contradiction in terms as these are not “simple” they are beautifully created!

  21. Therse these are utterly gorgeous ! I’ve done this hop in wrong order so I’m afraid your at the other end of my hop list but wow what a way to finish off. Loving both of these designs. Thank you for sharing awesome inspiration.

    Keep up the great work and thank you for sharing.

  24. Your little girl card is adorable! So very sweet! I love how you made it look like that sentiment was just coming right out of her lil’ elbow! Plus I love purple and she is smocked so sweetly in a purple fairy winged frock! The x and o card is super fun too!

  25. You are such a clever card maker. You surprise me everyday when I open my mail to check out your creations. Do they call “Tic Tack Toe” your phrase “Naughts and Crosses” in Australia? That one was new to me. Love the little birds on the Valentine card but that face on the little girl is adorable too.

  26. Love the delightful designs on both your cards. Thanks for sharing this inspiration with these fun products.

  27. The little girl is adorably sweet and love how she ended up on the ‘love’ sentiment. Great cards and a wonderful release!
