Want a quick and easy way to stretch your stamps?  Today I share a fun idea to do just that!  And with minimal colouring these cards came together quite quickly.

Today’s video is part of my Penny Black Gimme 5 Series which means I have 5 same but different cards to share.

Therese Calvird - Gimme 5 Penny Black - Busy Backgrounds (card video) 1I highlighted just one but you could easily colour them all!

Therese Calvird - Gimme 5 Penny Black - Busy Backgrounds (card video) 1I just had to use the Simple Stackers die to create a background panel it’s such a unique design!  And did you see a little Snippet of a sentiment made it in there too.

  1. Your cards are wonderful- awesome designs! I love how you kept the little girl image uncolored, in front of that beautiful panel- the Simple Stackers die is really cool!

  2. Absolutely love all of these cards. Your Penny Black designs are always amazing and the spin you’ve given them this time is no exception. You just can’t beat those shades of pink and green for a bright fresh look. Brilliant as always. Thank you Therese always enjoy what you do.❤️

  3. These are so beautiful Therese that cute as bunny and the little sweetie and those backgrounds just perfect. I am so loving these penny black die cut backgrounds but so expensive. I wish they would look into doing at better prices. I do love to admire them.

  4. I love each and everyone one of these cards Therese! I’m amazed with how the backgrounds and the focal points really popped together and really love that die cut panel and the uncoloured girl at the end – something i’ve never done cos i want to colour all the images too! lol I was really surprised at how beautiful the pink flowers looked with that little bit of highlighting all over – stunning!

    1. I would love to also try those flowers coloured in ‘full’ pencil too, maybe even on the pink background again… so many ideas so little time. Thanks so much for stopping by, stay safe and well, Hugs Therese

  5. It is always a pleasure watching you bring the images to life with colour. I like the cheeky sentiment and the black and white bits too. I got a Stampamajig a few months ago so I would use my wood block stamps more. Some cling sentiments aren’t cut with a straight edge so I’ve found it good for those too. Stay away from Tom Hanks!

    1. Hahaha he is at a different hospital to me and we are so happy that he is doing well… it would be devistating if anything happened to him here in Australia! But yes, it’s going to be hard not to be exposed where I am lol, stay safe and well my friend x

  6. Oh. my. goodness, my friend. I’ve fallen in love with these darling little characters, and the stories they’re telling me today. Your colors, and coloring, are so perfect – as are the darling backgrounds you’ve created.
    But, your friend Christine [two above me] just made me LOL like no other, today!
    =]

  7. You do come up with the most wonderful design ideas, Therese … these are fabulous! Sweet images, brilliant backgrounds and such a lovely colour combo! A delicious quintet! Hugs, Anita 🙂

  8. You have shared with us a fabulous video filled with darling cards and stunning backgrounds Thank you for sharing your lesson for today.

  9. Therese, thank you for this fabulous video! (Well, all of your videos are fabulous.) You have so much patience to make the “thank you” BG. I struggle making BGs using smaller stamps because I feel it needs to look “random” but you’ve proved that you can stamp them all in the same direction and it still looks fab!!

  10. Well what can I say! Amazing set of 5 cards. Lolly is absolutely adorable – might have to add her to my wishlist! 😉

    Please stay safe – I know you work in the health care industry. I’ve ditched public transport for now, unfortunately at this stage I can’t work from home. I still have 3 of my 4 kiddos on public transport for now until schools/unis are closed.

  11. I absolutely LOVED watching you do these five cards! The THANK YOU background is stunning, but takes a steady hand that I don’t have anymore, but yours is fantastic! I loved the variety of backgrounds and the cute little girl. I enjoy your color combinations and your coloring techniques.

  12. Absolutely beautiful cards and lovely card ideas for line art stamps. I thank you for sharing your creative talents.

  13. Fantastic !!! These are just the sort of cards I would love to make & adore receiving. So classy & fun, thank you so much for sharing all. Stay safe & healthy x
