How to Make 5 Easy Cards With 1 Stamp Set – Gimme 5 Video!

Today I share 5 cards using the Penny Black Special Friends Stamp Set, it’s so much fun stretching a set into 5 similar but different designs!

This is part of my Gimme 5 Series for Penny Black and if you haven’t seen these before then you can check out heaps more at my YouTube Channel Here.

I started with a fun Brusho background

and then added some silhouette leaves with a sentiment banner.

Next I had some fun creating a sweet little mirror image hedgehog, and I added a negative space border with the Lovely Border Dies.

The sentiment is from the Love Sentiments Stamp Set.

Then I decided to put the whole group together

which was a breeze with the co-ordinating dies.

  1. I loved the cards you did with this set in the past and have been trying to convince myself that I don’t need it. You have shown again how cute those images are so I may have to give in. Lol I hope you do the new whimsical animals soon, they look fun.

  2. Such fun cards – you do them so well. I loved the last card with the roses, and as always, you amaze me with how fast you colour them. I was impressed with you using the brushos, as I have avoided them because they usually look really messy, but you nailed it. Happy Easter – hope the bunny pops in with something delicious.

  3. Really neat and sweet cards. Love that you mix and match your stamps. Great techniques and inspiration. Thanks for sharing and appreciate all that you share.

  4. Therese every time I sit down to make a card I suffer from a creative block and then I stalk your blog!
    Do you use the same size card most of the time?

    1. Yes I basically use A2 sized cards (which is half of a USA A4 cardsheet which is then folded) either landscape or topfold portrait style. I used to use the Australian A4 cut in half and folded but I have found the Neenah easier to get here now so have converted to that so I can have ‘matchy matchy’ whites in both 80lb and 110lb weight. Thanks so much for your lovely visit here today, crafty hugs, Therese

  5. Oh Therese, I just love your “Gimme 5” series of videos, I’m always amazed at the different cards you create using one set of images, you truly inspire us to get creative with your impeccable layering and beautiful coloring.
    Thank you so much for sharing.

  6. Great cards!!! I too especially really like the last one. That’s so cool how you got a watercolored look with copics! And with that bunny and the sentiment … precious. Thanks, Therese!!

  7. Wow! Wow! Wow! These are amazing! What adorable stamps and I just love the way you coloured them! Love that brusho background too

  8. Awh! Therese!! I loved every minute of this video. All five cards are all-stars and I love all of the special touches you include with each card design. You rock!!

  9. Your GImme 5 videos are always so inspiring, Therese. I don’t have this set of stamps but I did make a black Brusho panel as soon as the video was over. Now I have one to use with something else. All of these cards are so cute.

  10. Love how you created such wonderfully whimsical scenes for these sweet storybook characters, Therese … they’re soooo cute! Not much is making it to my wish book these days … with your help (tee hee!), these have … thank you!! Hugs, Anita πŸ™‚

  11. Love the black Brushos…I don’t have that one…might have to search it out! I love how you layer your cards…these little chaps are fab. Di

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