How to Use Stamped A4 Cardstock to Make 5 Cards! – Gimme 5 Video!

Today I created my very own ‘Design Paper’ using some Penny Black stamps and I added a little glam with some Rose Gold heat embossing.

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

I used the Banner Blooms Stamp Set to make my floral cardstock and added a background panel of this to my first card design.  The die cut border comes from the Stitches of Love nesting dies.

I couldn’t resist adding some Hedgie Luv and a sentiment banner from the Special Friends Stamp Set.

A more CAS approach to my second card and I simply added the bird from Peaceful Time

and a Snippet’y’ sentiment.

I used the cardstock as a background again but this time added the Big banner from the stamp set with a Snippet sentiment too!

This cute bunny is also from the Special Friends Stamp Set.

More of a gift card for the next card and this one features the hedgehog from the Tea Time Stamp Set.

This time I die cut a tag from the design paper and added a bow from the Red Roses Die Set.

My final (and favourite) design was probably the easiest to create.  I simply used the coordinating dies from the Banner Blooms set to cut out some flowers from the design paper.

Then I added a simple sentiment from the Only You Stamp Set.

Have you ever stamped a whole A4 sheet of cardstock… and if so what did you do with it? I hope you are inspired to try this, it was such fun.  Have a great day, Hugs

  1. What a delightful selection of cards. Have two firm favorites.
    Heading over to YouTube to watch you create.
    Also have a wry merry Christmas.
    Can’t wait to see you create in 2020.
    Merry Cheers
    Lisa

  2. Always love this series. Penny Black products are amazing as are all the cards you’ve created for us today. The stamped backgrounds are really lovely. I’m a sucker for their frame dies and this one is beautiful and you’ve incorporated it into one of the two cutest cards. I just love the hedgehogs.
    Thank you for all the wonderful designs you have inspired us with this year and I look forward to seeing your creations in 2020.
    Have a wonderful Christmas Therese and a happy and healthy new year.

  3. These are all beautiful. The peachy color of the cardstock is a winner, to start, and all the images are lovely. I don’t know what is my favorite in this set!

  4. You amaze me again, and again, and … well you get the picture! LOVE this wonderful peachiness, Therese! especially with the crisp white, and rosy gold! Can’t wait to watch you work your magic… xo
    =]

  5. I absolutely LOVE what you did to make your background design paper!!! The colours are gorgeous and pared with both the lightly coloured and black and white images…I am hard pressed to choose a favorite! I love your coloured pencil work and am going to find an afternoon to study your pencil process…with a cup of coffee and time to enjoy! Thanks for all your videos and sharing your lovely creations…all your work is appreciated! ♥ Have a wonderful Christmas!

    1. Thanks so much Clelie, Merry Christmas to you too! ps did you know that you can slow the video down in Youtube to watch it, I would however recommend turning the volume down as the voiceover becomes slow too lol.

  6. Therese, I think this is just the best way to create your own designer paper!!! I really love DSP but hate to use it because I have a hard time choosing what side should be on top.
    And I love the fact you heat embossed it, it looks truly beautiful.
    All of these cards are gorgeous, simple and elegant, sweet and charming, I adore those little critters!!
    Thank you for always inspiring and sharing.
    Merry Christmas to you and your family Therese, and Health, Joy, Peace and Love in 2020!!
    Hugs!
    Maria.

    1. hahaha I don’t like to use my DP because then I don’t have it any more (I think it’s called hoarding lol) so I figure if I make my own I can recreate it as often and in whatever colour I want as Often as I want. Merry Christmas to you my friend and thank you for your continuing support, Big Crafty hugs, Therese

  7. WOW ! Loving the idea, the colours & the unique ways in which you chose to use your paper instead of just backgrounds. Here’s to wishing you & your family a great christmas & a fabulous start to 2020 x

  8. Your homemade pattern paper is just stunning! I love how soft and sweet it is with a bit of shine from the embossing. What a beautiful idea.

  9. Therese, I looked at the supply list and thought what did she use the black paper for?! Then I realized the die you mentioned was a bow die (because while reading the post I was confused as to why that ribbon was referred to as a ‘die’. Now it all makes sense!
    Such details you have added to make each card so special! I enjoyed the video so much, I am gonna watch again! I am sure I missed something plus it is so fun to hear your great accent!
    Merry Christmas since in Australia you are already celebrating. Looking forward to your last few posts this year and seeing you next year too😊🎉👍!
    Cheers!

  10. I’ve not had chance to come by for a while, Therese … and watching you create this glorious set of peach and gold based cards with the soft line art images has just reminded me how much I’ve missed seeing your wonderful talent … and your fabulous videos! You are so inspiring … thank you! Wishing you a blessed Christmas! Hugs, Anit a:)

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