Hello everyone!

I have a couple of cards to share which are featuring two beautiful cling stamp sets from the Cherished 2023 collection by Penny Black. I colored the outline images using colored pencils ! Hope you like them!


This stamp with the little bird on the trunk is called Chirping (40-899). I colored the bird as a Lazuli Bunting, a beautiful blue bird !


I stamped the Chirping (40-899) in brown ink on a light brown toned paper by Talens. Then I colored the image using the Prismacolor colored pencils.


The sentiment from the …Doubles our Joy (30-954) set was heat embossed in white on the colored panel. Lastly I cut the panel using the Leaf Stitched Frames die (51-552) and foam mounted it on a white cardbase.


Next card is showing the Expressive (40-897) cling stamp. I’m not sure what type of flowers they are, but they resembled anemones to me, so I colored them as anemone flowers 🙂 .


This time I stamped the image in a white pigment ink on Toned Gray paper and colored it using Prismacolor colored pencils. After done with coloring I cut the panel using the Zig Zag Stackers die (51-714).


The Toned gray paper is relatively thin. So I didn’t heat emboss the sentiment from the Blissful Bears (30-958) set directly on the colored panel to avoid warping. Instead I heat embossed the sentiment on a piece of vellum in silver and cut it using a die from the Stitched Circles (51-551) set.


I foam mounted the colored panel on a white cardbase and adhered the circle vellum with the sentiment on it. I added a small white butterfly to the circle which was cut using the Soaring (51-731) die set. I finished off by adding a purple rhinestone to the butterfly and two more rhinestones under the sentiment.


I love doing pencil coloring on toned paper. The background color helps the image to pop off.

Thank you so much for looking! Please stop by Penny Black blog to check all the pretty items of the Cherished 2023 collection!

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!

  1. Every time I see such stunning use of pencils I am completely gobsmacked and these two pretty images have certainly left me speechless..well very nearly…lol, with the beautiful colours and stylish elegant finish on both with the two pretty ornate edges to the image layers, and the super white embossed on the first, and then the great use of the vellum circle for the silver embossed sentiment on the second card..just gorgeous TaeEun. x

  2. TaeEun, not only would I love to see your beautiful model irl, I would love to introduce you to his cousin the Indigo Bunting! Gorgeous coloring, beautiful sentiment!
    These surely could be Anemones – or maybe Iceland Poppies? A flower by any other name would be just as beautiful when colored by YOU!

  3. I just can’t get over the beauty of your pencil coloring!! Love seeing all you create, TaeEun!
