Penny Black Happy Heart Day Blog Hop


Welcome to "Party with Penny", an invitation to join in the fun for the next several days as Penny Black reveals Happy Heart Day, their newest collection of stamps and dies.  

This party is starting with a blog hop!

I am delighted and honored to be included with so many talented artists.  You should have arrived here from the blog of the awesome Sherry Hester.  If you want to start this hop from the beginning, you can go to the Penny Black blog for a complete list of the blog participants.

 The Happy Heart Day release makes my heart sing and my face smile big.  Teddy Bears, bunnies, hearts, love, birdies, hugs, bees, sweet girls, and sunshine … oh, my.  The possibilities are endless.  No matter your style, you will find stamps and dies to make cards for many occasions:  Valentine's Day, birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, encouragement and even "Miss You".  

51-484 Lovely Border, 51-494 Love and Miss You 51-495 Key...cut out, 30-522 Love in Bloom, 30-535 Space Reserved
I stamped the Valentine tree using grey Memento ink and colored the hearts using Copic markers.  On separate cardstock and using my MISTI stamp positioner, I stamped the Teddy from the Space Reserved transparent set, colored it with Copics and then fussy cut the image and attached it to the card face using Scotch mounting tape.  I created that lovely heart border using the Lovely Border die.  Just for fun, I added a gold "key to my heart" from the Key...Cut Out die set.  Finally I added the sentiment by cutting out "Miss You" from the Love and Miss you die set.

The stamps and dies I used to make this card and the rest of the Happy Heart Day release are now available in the 
Penny Penny Black online store.  No more waiting!

Teddy Bears are such fun to color and mixing stamp and die sets allows endless variation.  Who are you reserving that space on the bench for?  I think my two littlest grandchildren would just fit! 


And what is a party without a giveaway?   Penny Black is generously giving away a $50 shopping spree to the Penny Black online store to THREE lucky winners.  To enter, leave a comment on any blog hop post (this one included).  The giveaway closes on Sunday, December 23rd at 11:59 PM PST and winners will be announced on the Penny Black blog on December 31st.

You have now completed the "Party with Penny" blog hop.  I hope you have commented on the blog posts to become eligible to win one of the shopping sprees.

Remember, the complete Happy Heart Day release is now available in the Penny Black store.


And, Penny Black, I know I was last in the lineup due to my habit of running with scissors.  Hopefully, the strategy worked and my scissors and I have done no harm.
