Time to Celebrate (Penny Black Saturday Challenge)

Thanks so much to the wonderful Dies R Us Challenge for selecting my card as one of the top 3 for their Challenge #148 – Winner and Top Three.

Top Three Badge


Hello and welcome

I’m back with the new June Penny Black Saturday Challenge! This month the theme is Anything Goes (option ‘Nature’ ).  I hope you have the chance to join in the fun!

This card features the orchid from PB – Happy Together clear stamp set. After colouring with Prismacolor pencils, the image was fussy cut.

The front of the kraft card was then covered with a panel die cut with one of the dies from Sizzix Thinlets in the corner. The orchid was then added to the card front.

The sentiment is from PB Heartfelt stamp set.

Please head over to our blog to  check out the wonderfully inspirational work by the rest of the Design Team!  I hope you will find the time to join our challenge this month.

I look forward to seeing what you create!  Good luck!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

Have a great week!

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.

  1. Love this! The open detail of the die looks gorgeous beneath your beautifully colored orchid! I have that Sizzix die set and although I don’t use them often, when I do, they sure make a statement!


  2. Helen this is gorgeous. The image is coloured so perfectly and fussy cut I thought it might be a PB Stickeroo. The background die to create the wall is just the most wonderful compliment. Adds lots of subtle detail so doesn’t overshadow your image.

    Thank you very much for entering your lovely card into our challenge. Good luck with the prize draw.

    Stay healthy, happy, keep crafting and Creating Joy 🙂

  3. What a beautiful card, Helen! You did a fantastic job coloring the orchids! When I first saw the card front I thought it was a die-cut of my home state of Idaho! It’s the perfect foil for the intricate flower stamp. Thank you for sharing your creativity with us at Double Trouble!!! -Donna
