Cute Card Thursday 454 - Toys or Transport


Oops, totally forgot what day we were on. But - hey, I'm here now. So onto the new Challenge over at Cute Card Thursday. The theme this week is toys or transport. I went with a bit of both using this Lili of the Valley stamp. We are sponsored by Whimsy Stamps. I decided to make a gift bag. The back is a cheap lunch bag which I covered with cardstock.

Cute Card Thursday 453


We have another Challenge up over at Cute Card Thursday and the theme is Tag, Ornament or Bauble. We are sponsored this week by Sherri Baldy. I decided to make a Tag, as I am really enjoying making them just now. I cut the tag using an MFT die and added some Impression Obsession die cut trees and snow drifts using MFT snow drift dies. The star is Taylored Expressions. I used some Stampendous Embossing Frantage stuff to look like snow falling. And the super cute horse is from Whimsy Stamps and is digital. I am so glad they brought them back. Can't wait to see what else they have in store. I have coloured him in using Polychromos Pencils and blended with Sansador using Paper stumps. Oh - I almost forgot to add that I have added some acetate to the front to make it curved. And horsey is sitting on top of the acetate with the scene behind it. (Haha, that's what makes this tag too).

Cute Card Thursday 452 - Christmas/Holidays


Yay, I'm on my Christmas Crafting mode. The theme for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge is Christmas/Holidays. So I'm sure you all can play along. We are being sponsored by Di's Digi stamps, where you can find loads of fab images.For my card  I have used this cutie from Kraftin Kimmie stamps, and coloured her in pinks and greenish. The sentiment is also from the set. I have followed the Kraftin Kimmie's November sketch and since I have used non traditional colours (that is if you ignore the red Poinsettia's haha) I am going to chance it and enter it into their Non traditional Christmas Colours Challenge here. The papers are My Minds Eye and the Poinsettia's are Marianne Designs. The button is an MFT die as is the flag for the sentiment.

Cute Card Thursday 451 - Add something Metallic


Another week over and a new challenge over at Cute Card Thursday. The theme this week is to add something metallic. We are sponsored by All Dressed Up Stamps. I added a snowflake charm for this. I decided to make a wee prezzie of hot chocolate, mallows and candy cane. So made a tag for it. I was quite happy with the tag. I used this wee cutie who was just calling out Hot Chocolate. The papers are digi from Pink Petticoat. The wee mallows at the bottom are from an MFT die and the snowflakes are from Paper Smooches. I added a few sequins on the image too. And another view - straight on.


I am going to enter this into the Challenge over at In the Pink where the theme is Winter.

Cute Card Thursday 450 - Anything but a card


Time for another Challenge over at Cute Card Thursday where the theme is Anything but a card. I needed a gift box, so thought it was perfect timing.

The paper is from Sweet Shoppe Designs and a whimsy Die for the snowflake. We are sponsored this week by Whimsy Stamps. And they are brought back digi stamps - yay.

Simply B Stamps Challenge 1


Running a bit slow with this one, but hopefully managing to get it posted in time. My card for the first Monthly Challenge over at Simply Betty Stamps. As I was running late, I used an image that I had already coloured up. Making it a super quick card. Well for me anyway. I can't find this cutie in store at the mo, but I'm sure you could find something if you have a wee look round. The sentiment is from another Betty image here. The papers are from Sweet shoppe Designs - Black Pearl by Misty Cato. I just love these papers.

Cute Card Thursday 448 - Halloween


Another Week gone by - Boy aren't they flying by. So that means it's time for another Challenge over at Cute Card Thursday where the theme is Halloween. I can do that. I decided to make some wee treat holders using the Tim Holtz Pillow Die. They are rather simple, but I quite like that. It doesn't make it quicker to make right enough. Haha. This week we are being sponsored by Di's Digi stamps where the winner will receive a $12 voucher for her store. The cute owls are from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps as is the sentiment. The die cuts are from MFT and Taylored Expressions. With a bit of twine added around the middle. I am going to enter this into the Kraftin Kimmie Wonderful Wednesday Challenge where the theme is Anything Goes.

Cute Card Thursday 447 - Recipe


Another week gone by and another challenge over at Cute Card Thursday. This week we have a Recipe challenge going - 3 brads/gems, 2 papers and 1 ribbon/washi. We are sponsored again by All Dressed Up Stamps. So I used this super cute on my farm and gone for a Boy card. I have coloured it using Polychromos pencils and blended with Sansador using paper stumps. The papers are a download from Pink Petticoat. The silver star strip is my Washi tape. I had to add a silver matt to go with it - haha. And 3 wee brads in the corner. I so don't use brads (and yes I have a box full of them from years ago - when I still didn't use them). A very simple card from me, but I am liking it, so all is good.

Cute Card Thursday 445 - CAS


Lucky for me the new challenge over at Cute Card Thursday is CAS. This week we are sponsored by Magnolia - licious. I don't really do cards other than CAS. I love everyone elses, but just don't seem to be able to do them myself. Oh well, I just have to admire everyone elses. I am into making these easel calendars just now. What I am going to do with them (about 10 so far haha) I don't know. I was thinking about doing a Christmas craft fair, but I really wouldn't have enough things to sell. Guess I'll have wee sticky note calendars everywhere. haha.


The writing is a digi stamp from Whimsy Stamps from when they did digi stamps. I really wish they would bring them back, they were all gorgeous. The Ladybirds are an Elizabeth Crafts die. I added the pencil to one of my calendars and now I feel it's not finished without it.The papers are from Sweet Shoppe Designs - A Whimsical Garden by Kristen Cronin Barrow.

Cute Card Thursday 443 - Vintage


Once again another week has flown by and the theme for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge is Vintage. Hmm, I don't do vintage. Just the thought of roughing it up a bit puts me in a sweat. But hey, it's a challenge right (and only a bit of paper - yeah). So here is the end result, and I'm quite liking it. I might just have to try it again. (Did I really just say that).  We are being sponsored by Dis Digi Stamps with a $12 voucher to spend in store.
Well onto my card. I dug out an oldie stamp for this one. I have used a Leanne Ellis stamp from Sugar Nellie. You can get her in a super deal here. £9.99 for 5 stamps. What's not to love about that eh. But you can also get her on her own from here. The papers are digi from Michelerdesigns not that you can see much of them. The lace die is from Joanna Sheen and the birdcage is Tim Holtz. I decided to use some Imagination Crafts Alchemy Wax in Bronze to make it look a bit more aged. I have never used this before, but do like the result.

Cute Card Thursday 442 - Animals/Creatures

Another week gone and time for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge where they have the theme Animals/Creatures. A nice and easy one for you all. We are sponsored this week by All Dressed Up Stamps. So for my card I used Christmas Post from All Dressed Up. And another Christmas card for the box. Loads more to go right enough. The papers are from Papermania. I really must use up some of my papers. I like Digital papers, but have soo many real papers, that I have to at least try and use them once in a while. The snowflakes are dies from Paper Smooches. The circles are MFT stitched circles and the scallop circle is a Tonic die. The sentiment is from Mama Elephant. For the snow I used some embossing powder - I just love this effect for snow. I have followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday.

Oops, a bit late with this one. But hey, I'm here now. Well we have another Challenge over at Cute Card Thursday - the theme is House / Home. And we are sponsored by Bunny Zoe's Crafts. So I decided to go with a wee gift for someone. Who wouldn't want wine and chocolate - right.  I used a wee froggie stamp from Whimsy Stamps, and coloured it with Copics. The diecut reeds is from Joy crafts. It was actually bigger than I was expecting, but it's OK, I'm still getting to use it. The sentiment is printed from the computer and the small bit of paper is from Papermania. I added a few wee sequins because they were sitting on my desk crying to be used. Haha.


And a wee close up of the image. Maybe not the best picture, but you can see it anyway.
I am going to enter it into the ABC Challenge - O for open (anything goes).

So I have used Princess for a day from All Dressed Up, I mean everyone likes to be a Princess once in a while don't they.

The Sugar Bowl 139


Well, isn't time flying by. Yep - it's time for the challenge over at Sugar Nellie again. As always it is an anything goes theme, but make sure you use an image that you can get over at Funky Kits. I decided to make a Christmas Tag this month. I have been seeing cards with an acetate curve at the front. So I decided to try it, but on a tag. And I am quite liking it. So I cut the tag using the largest die from MFT Tag Die. The trees are from Impressions Obsessions, the snow drifts are MFT. The star is from Memory Box. I decided to give it a snowy feel by adding some Stampendous chunky embossing powder. Of course I used the super sweet mini Gorjuss Girl #10 Purrfect Love. I just love all the Gorjuss range and there is a great range of them over at Funky Kits. And finished off with a bit of ribbon.

I don't know if you can see the acetate any better in this one. But it is there I promise. I coloured her with Polychromos pencils and blended with Sansador using paper stumps. So what you waiting for - hop on over to The Sugar Nellie Blog and see what everyone else has made. There is a super prize of 4 stamps to be won, but you have gotta be in it to win it.
I am going to enter this wee cutie into the ABC Christmas Challenge where the theme is O for overlay. I think the acetate covers that.
