  1. Forgot to add in my comment on YT that I personally think critters are great for masculine cards if it’s humorous, which these are all definitely that! My wish list has definitely grown after seeing your video!

    1. Ohhhh what a fantastic set of cards perfect for men of course I love all the sentiments and animals used. The designs are all so CAS and just love them. More stamp sets too go on my list…

  2. Love these fun cards! I think dogs can be critters. The sentiments are just as good as the cute critters on these cards. Who could resist that fun cat with the sunnies?

  3. Brilliant! I always love your Take 5 with Penny Black. Earlier today I was re-watching some of the previous videos and they are all full of creativity. This one is even better (if that’s possible). The cards are all so well executed, with a sense of humour. I agree with the comment that they would be ideal for those difficult males in our lives that are so hard to craft for, but they are truly perfect for anyone who likes a little humour. These days, we all need it. The sad thing is I’ve lost my Penny Black stockist. Might now need to order direct from the US. Thank you Therese, you’re so inspiring.

  4. Omg, I love them all! And I feel like I need all of these stamp sets now! Great masculine cards. Thanks Therese!

  5. Therese these are all just fabulous!! LOve it when we can laugh about getting older… I mean others can laugh about getting older!! LOL
    I also love it when you get those pencils out, my friend… outstanding!
    =]

  6. I always love, love, love your critter cards. I ‘may’ just have bought most of those critter stamps after seeing you use them, but the sentiment stamps are usually out of stock after you have posted a video!!! As always your cards are delightful and certainly put a smile on my face today. Thanks a bunch. Stay safe and well.

    1. Thanks so very much Mary, I am pretty sure I can’t be to blame for the sentiments running out of stock lol. but it’s a lovely thought. Hope that you are staying safe and well, Big Crafty hugs,Therese x ps these critters are just too cute!

  7. Thanks for these ideas using some of my favorite Penny Black stamps! I love ideas using what I already own. Hugs from the USA. A big fan!!!

  8. I think critters are wonderful for masculine cards, (and yes dogs are critters IMO), Therese, but I don’t have many critter stamps. At least not many suitable for masculine cards. I love all of yours. They are so fun and beautifully designed.

  9. Why do you always make it look so easy to make clean and simple cards? When I attempt it, they come out boring. Love your critters! I like your technique with the InkTense pencils….I am too heavy handed and I will give a lighter touch a try. Thank you for the inspiration!

    BTW– what are those pockets you store your stamp sets in? Do they accommodate the matching dies?
    thanks (in advance) 🙂

    1. Hi June, I have used these Marbig pockets for years and they are fabulous and a nice heavy weight plastic (I do need to cut down the packaging for the larger Altenew sets to fit in the pocket). Most sets will fit both the dies and stamps together but I find some of the die sets that are large I do tend to give them their own pocket as it’s easier. Here is a link to where I buy them (but the packaging looks different to the picture but it’s the same)

      Hope this is helpful. Have a great and crafty day, Therese

  10. I just love watching you create and you are the best at bringing the life and joy out of these stamps! Thanks for sharing and your time in creating this video– you da best!

  11. What great masculine cards! I always enjoy your videos, too. Thank you for sharing your talent and creativity, it’s so appreciated!

  12. Fabulous as ever, Therese … these are all fantastic masculine cards … both the images and the sentiments are so fun! Is the pooch a critter … IMO if you’re making the card and you want him to be, then he is! Sure looks like it to me! Favourite today … the dog on the bike … he’s so cute … and so deliciously minimalist! Hugs, Anita 🙂
