Over the Top with Penny Black Gimme 5 + Video!

Today I share 2 different ways to take it Over the Top in my Gimme 5 video with Penny Black.  I decided to keep the same colour theme throughout my designs today but they are all very different.

I wanted to show that this technique can be used in many different styles and with pretty much any stamps that you want.  Starting with this Delicate Beauty.

I used my new fave sentiment set in most of my cards today and it’s called Good Wishes.

My second card is a cute’sy one using the Tea Time hedgehog.

I made life difficult for myself by embossing the Wood Floors and then adding colour, but I got there in the end.

I love that this new Monarch die coordinates with the older Flights of Fancy die.

And this sentiment is also from the Tea Time stamp set.

My Critter Celebration involved some mouse ‘twirling’ thanks to the amazing inspiration from Sandy HERE.

And my final design uses the Rose Garden cling stamp, what can I say but I am……    swooooning here.

I hope you were inspired to try this technique, pick a stamp you love and make a card and take it Over the Top!  Have a great week, Hugs

  1. Love your cards. They really are gorgeous. I have to say the twirling mouse is just too cute. I have to have this set. You’re always an inspiration. Thank you.

  2. Fabulous cards, Therese! I’ll admit that this is one of my most favorite color combinations – and it works perfectly for all of your designs. I’d seen the ‘twirls’ that Sandy had done too, and gave myself a good smack…how simple and what a great way to give an image motion! If I dare try it, I will heed your advice and practice first! Love all the cards, but especially the first and the last ones. Something about flowers, I guess, lol! Those roses are incredible! I may have to try an over the top card one of these days. Sending hugs. xoxo : )

  3. I just love these cards and the partial die cutting technique. The hedgehog in the teacup and the mice are so cute. Must give this technique a try you have inspired me.

  4. Well, no surprises here that your selection of cards are so very beautiful.
    All the colour combos are just lovely. The sentiments are so touching.
    Thank you for all the inspiration. Every card would be welcome in my mail box.
    Cheers
    Lisa

  5. Wow – I just love all these cards and you are right about the sentiment you love. Thanks for sharing your ideas and how to achieve great designs.

  6. Thanks so much for the “over the top” video…Nothing I didn’t like about this…the coloring, the die cutting…even love your calm voice…and your little laughs that remind us how much fun this creating should and can be!

  7. Fantastic, wonderful, colourful, fun, cheerful !
    These ” over the top” cards are excellent, so much fun either way you for them. I do love the butterfly version & those adorable mice, look at him spinning in. Great take on Sandys version, I’m sure she would love it, have you sent it her ? Got to have a rummage through & see what out of my stash would work excellently at this. Thank you Therese for so much fun inspiration x

  8. Thank you for this “over the top” video. Who wouldn’t love to get one of these in the mail, I know I would! Absolutely love your blog – I learn so much and love your sense of humor and your laid back approach to your card making. You remind me to take the time to enjoy and try something new. So I thank you for sharing your never ending talent and look forward to your next new video.

  9. What a lovely way to spend my mug-of-tea quarter of an hour this sunny morning, Therese … watching you create these delightful and charming ‘over the top’ cards! Each one is just gorgeous … and that little twirling mouse is especially sweet! Thanks for a delicious and inspiring pause in my day! Hugs, Anita 🙂

  10. It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these cards, so thanks for reminding me, Therese. Those little mice are so cute and he does look like he’s spinning. The garden of roses is spectacular and what is more adorable than a hedgehog in a tea cup.

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
