Hello everyone ! Hope you’re having a great week! 

Today I have a trio of cute cards to share with you. They feature three adorable mini clear stamp sets from the All Smiles collection by Penny Black.


There are also newly released critter stamp sets, which are also super cute. However, for this collection, I chose some precious images with children to showcase ! 

The first card features the Sweeter (31-055) set. I stamped the image on some watercolor paper in Versafine Onyx Black ink and watercolored the cute girl with a huge birthday cake!


I also watercolored the ground a little bit and stamped the sentiments from the same stamp set in black directly on the watercolored panel. 

I cut the right side of the panel using a border die with the stitch pattern from the Slimline Medley (51-718) die set, and the left side using a die from the Border Collection (51-717) die set. 


To add some texture to the background, I embossed the front of a pink cardbase using the Diagonals (65-019) embossing folder. 

Lastly, I added the front panel using foam tape. 


The next card showcases a lovely scene with a little girl hugging a cat form the Purr (31-060) set.


For a no-line coloring look, I stamped the image in Antique Linen distress ink and watercolored it. I ink blended the top corners with Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet Distress inks and splattered white opaque ink on the background. 

To add some texture, I cut three sides of the watercolored panel using the die with the stitch pattern from the Slimline Medley (51-718) die set and adhered the panel to a white cardbase.


The sentiment was created using the Thanks Edger (51-774) die set. I cut a purple cardstock using the base die and the word from white cardstock three times. I heat embossed the sentiment from the Thanks Builder (30-974) set in white on the bottom of the purple panel and foam mounted it to the card. 


The last card for today shows the Camping (31-051) stamp set. I stamped it on some watercolor paper in Onyx Black and watercolored it in bright colors. 


I stamped the sentiment from the Brew-Tea-Ful (31-063) stamp set in black on the right side of the watercolored panel and cut the top and bottom of it using a border die with pierced dots from the Border Collection (51-717) set.


The light blue cardbase was embossed using the Diagonals (65-019) embossing folder, and the front panel was foam mounted on it. 


That’s it for today! I hope you enjoyed the making process of my cards!

  1. TaeEun! Oh, my goodness these are ALL as charming as they can be – but your little ginger-haired girl and her kitty captures my heart today! [pardon me now as I must look at it again!]

  2. How lovely! I’m amazed at the detail you’ve achieved on the “Purr” card. Every one of these cards is so sweet. Wish I could watercolor like this!!!

  3. All three are such cute images TaeEun and all beautifully coloured, and I love the curved border on the first with the Diagonals EF which looks great used on the last one too, and the sweet cat with the little girl o the second is definitely a winner..just adorable, and the way you have got the texture of the fur is wonderful. x

  4. Oh my gosh, such sweet cards! I love the embossing folder for your backgrounds! The little girl hugging the kitty is just adorable and so beautifully coloured!
