Cute Card Thursday 489 - Charms

Another Challenge over at Cute Card Thursday and the theme is Charms. We are sponsored by Whimsy Stamps.


I've not really got much to say about my card. The heart embossing is a Sizzix embossing folder. The oval is a Spellbinders die and the 60 is A Tim Holtz Bigz die. The text I did on the computer. A few heart rhinestones (OK so they don't look heart shaped here). Oh and don't forget the charm.

Cute Card Thursday 487 - Summer Colours

Yep another week gone by and this week the theme over at Cute Card Thursday is summer colours. I think of summer colours as bright reds/oranges, but the choice is really yours. We are sponsored this week by Di's Digis.


For my card I have used an oldie from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps. I don't think this one is available anymore. I have coloured her using Copics. The papers are a download from Sweet Shoppe Designs. And yes, that is a peel off. I have mountains of them, but really don't use them anymore. I have followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday and I also want to enter it into the Wonderful Wednesday Challenge over at Kraftin Kimmie.

Cute Card Thursday 474 - Birthdays

Onto a new challenge at Cute Card Thursday (well yesterday anyway) and we have a super easy theme of Birthdays. We are sponsored this week by Di's Digi Stamps.


I decided to get one of my many Gorjuss Girl stamps coloured and onto a card. So I chose this one by Personnal Impressions (no longer available though). Although you can get a slightly smaller version now by Do crafts. She is stuck down a bit squint, so I added some seaweed to try and disguise it. I looks a bit better anyway. But I also like how the seaweed looks - result. The seaweed is a mixture of dies from Lala Land and Joanna Sheen and the shells are from Marianne Designs. The tag is an MFT die and the sentiment is from Mama Elephant. The papers are digi from Sweet Shoppe Designs - Sweet Sixteen by Melissa Bennett. She is coloured with Copics for a change. And a few pearls added to finish. I am going to enter this into the challenge over at In the Pink - pink with Pearls. I think I have covered both of them.
