Hi friends! Today I have a card made with some pretty darn cute images from Penny Black. I’ve used the Time to Celebrate stamp set and the sentiment is from the Banners Sentiment set.

To create my scene, I stamped the cute puppy dog in Tuxedo black ink. Then I did some stamp surgery and cut off the balloon from another image in that set and stamped that above his tail. I used a Copic multiliner to draw the balloon string and attached it to the dog’s tail. Then I stamped the bees and the sentiment.

Instead of colouring with Copic markers, which is my go to medium, I decided to get out my Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. It certainly was very therapeutic to colour!

Penny Black products used:
Penny Black 30-414 Time to Celebrate stamp set
Penny Black 30-423 Banner Sentiments


Stamps: Penny Black Time to Celebrate and Banner Sentiments stamp set

Card: X-Press It blending card, SSS Green Card stock

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink

I hope you are having a wonderful day.
Thanks for stopping by,






  1. Isn’t this the most gorgeous stamp set, I just coloured up that cute little hedgehog with the balloon the other day (though you may not see it just as yet). Loving all the critters from this release, uber super duper cute, just like you card!

  2. Your card is so fun! But I couldn’t get the link for the Banner Sentiments to work.
    Have a great day – thanks for posting some joy on your blog!

  3. Marion, this is adorable and beautifully colored. Love the sound shadows too!
