Cute Card Thursday 653 - Folds

 The Theme this week over at Cute Card Thursday is folds. We are sponsored by Oddball Art this week.


I made a DL sized Z fold card. (I think that's what it's called). I don't make these shapes very often, but with slimline cards making a comeback - Who knows. I have used this cutie. The papers are digi from Polkadoodles. I put a wee pocket on the inner bit to add a bookmark. I ran out of time, so will add the bookmark later - haha.

Cute Card Thursday 652 - Autumn

 Another week, another challenge over at Cute Card Thursday and this week we have the theme of Autumn. We are sponsored by Di's Digi Stamps.


I made a wee Popcorn box for some Halloween treats. They are quite dinky, but turn out cute. I got the die from Stampin Up, but it was a lot smaller than I thought. But that's OK, it's cute - haha. The papers are digi from Sweet Shoppe Designs. I used dies for the cobwebs from Whimsy Stamps. But it's an old one, so don't know if it's still available. The Penguin is a digi image from Whimsy Stamps from here or in rubber here. The Ghosts are dies from Memory Box, again rather old. And the chocolate is all eaten. Haha.

Cute Card Thursday 651 - No Patterned Paper

 New challenge has started over at Cute Card Thursday and we have the theme of No Patterned Paper. We are sponsored by All Dressed Up Stamps this week.


I got the new background die from Whimsy Stamps here, so went with that. I decided to use Magical Unicorn from All Dressed Up to go with the rainbow thing. I had the ribbon already sitting there. So it all came togeter nicely. I added the sequins because they were there too. Haha. I can make things without patterned papers, but I had to think about this one.

Cute Card Thursday 650 - Anything Goes

We have a new Challenge over at Cute Card Thursday with a very easy Anything Goes theme. We are sponsored by Whimsy Stamps this week.


For my card I have used Gnome Fishing. A super cute digital stamp. I have coloured him using Polychromos Pencils and blended with Sansador using Paper stumps. The papers are from a very old 12x12 paper pad by My Minds Eye. I had a wee tidy up (only a wee tidy, I am easily distracted) and found a big pad hardly used. The grass is an old Quickutz die and the buttons are an MFT die.

Cute Card Thursday 649 - Inky

 This week over at Cute Card Thursday we have our new challenge starting with the theme Inky. We are sponsored by My Creative Scoop.

I have made a bottle tag with a pocket for a bar of chocolate. It is actually measured to take a bar of Lindt chocolate. But a smaller big bar of Cadbury's fits in too. The bees are from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps and can be found here. I used Distress Inks for the background and added a few sequins. The bees are coloured with Polychromos Pencils and blended with Sansador with paper stumps.

Cute Card Thursday 648 - Embossing

 New challenge at Cute card Thursday and this week we have an Embossing theme. We are sponsored by Dis Digi Stamps

For my card, I went very simple with my embossing. I die cut the banners from an MFT die. I embossed the larger white one with a Crafters Companion embossing folder. The image is a pre coloured image from Dustin Pike and you can find it here. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and can be found here. I was planning on using a different sentiment, but my Big Shot die cutting machine died. So I went with what I had cut already. I'm looking at it now thinking I really want another sentiment on there though. I don't do cutting with scissors, so will have to wait. Although my Birthday is coming up, so plenty of hints to Hubby. Haha.

I have used Bucket and Spade from All Dressed Up Stamps. I have coloured her with Polychromos Pencils and blended with Sansador using Paper Stumps.The papers are from Echo Park. I have realised I obviously don't do bright colours. I don't have many bright papers. I have followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday although I have rotated it.

Cute Card Thursday 646 - Anything Goes

Wow another week gone by. So we have another challenge started over at Cute Card Thursday. We are sponsored by Whimsy Stamps and have a super easy Anything Goes Theme.


I have made another sticky note calendar. I'm getting a bit carried away making these. I have used a super cute gnome from this set by Dustin Pike. And the best part is - it's digital, so instant. Yay. I have coloured him with Polychromos pencils and blended with Sansador using paper stumps. The papers are digi too from Sweet Shoppe Designs. Adventure:Badger by Studio Flergs. I managed to get a wee black mark above the gnome. But saved the day with a wee wooden bee. The honey comb is a die from Whimsy too.

Cute Card Thursday 645 - Tags

On to another challenge over at Cute Card Thursday and this week we have the theme of Tags. We are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.


I decided to make a tag with a pocket. Not that you can see the pocket. I printed the image a bit too big. But I decided to use it anyway. But I made the pocket, then didn't know what to put in it. Luckily it was big enough to fit these wee Dairy Milk Little Bars. Takes 2 nicely. Like it ws made to measure. Haha. Anyway, the papers are from Sweet Shoppe Designs - All Hallows Eve by Kristen Cronin-Barow. The tag is an MFT die and the ghosts are Memory Box. The Boo is a digi from Whimsy Stamps, but don't know if they are still doing it. The image is of course from Bugaboo and you can get him here.

Cute Card Thursday 644 - Christmas in July

Onto another week, so another challenge over at Cute Card Thursday. We have the theme Christmas in July and are sponsored by Oddball Art.


I made a box/bag thingie for this one. It fits a mini bottle of wine in. I found the wee chocolate Santa, he must have avoided being eaten. So I used him as a prop then ate him - haha. I used Dear Santa from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps. I have coloured him using Polychromos Pencils and blended using Sansador with paper stumps.

Cute Card Thursday 643 - Stitching

Another week gone by and another challenge over at Cute Card Thursday and this week we have the theme of stitching. We are sponsored by Dis Digi Stamps.


I don't actually do stitching on my cards. So with the help of dies and a bit of doodling I went with faux stitching. I didn't really know where I was going with this one. So I went with the Christmas theme from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps Facebook which is pink and green. The image is Gingerbread Kisses from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps. I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday.


I then decided to add it onto a bag instead of leaving it as a card. We all need some gift bags - right. The papers are digi from Sweet Shoppe Designs - Happy Holidays by Zoe Pearn.

Cute Card Thursday - Not square

Another challenge has started over at Cute Card Thursday and this week we have the theme of Not Square. We are sponsored by All Dressed Up Stamps.


I decided to make a shaped card. I used a Dutchdubadoo stencil for the bottle. Cut out using scissors. That's the part I don't like. I don't think I am very neat at that. But I'm kinda happy with it. A wee bit of Gingham paper. The image is a simply print from Lili of the Valley.

Cute Card Thursday 641 - Anything Goes

Another week gone and another challenge over at Cute Card Thursday. This week we are sponsored by Whimsy Stamps. And we have a super easy theme of Anything Goes.


I have used a retired rubber stamp for my card this week from Whimsy stamps. You can find some of the collection here in the UK. The dies are a mix. I was going to colour them in but sat them on top to see how they fit. Thought they looked OK white, so stuck them down before I changed my mind.

Cute Card Thursday 640 - Flowers

Onto another challenge over at Cute Card Thursday, and this week we have a theme of flowers. We are sponsored by My Creative Scoop.


For my make this week I have gone with a sticky note calendar. I quite like making these. I have used Happy Hummingbirds from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps. The papers are pretty ancient, which I found while having a wee tidy up. I've decided that I really must use blues more often. Coloured with Polychromos Pencils and blended with Sansador using paper stumps.
I am going to enter this into the Kraftin Kimmie Skrappy Challenge where they want to see anything but a card.

I have used an oldie for this one. It is an old stamp from Sugar Nellie from their Little Cotton Rabbits range. The papers are from Sweet Shoppe Designs - Black Pearl by Misty Cato. I think the tag is a die from Whiff of Joy. And a wee MFT die cut button. Pretty simple really.

Oop I nearly forgot what day it was. Anyway, another challenge has started over at Cute Card Thursday. This week we have an Anything Goes Challenge and we are sponsored by Whimsy Stamps.


I got a Popcorn Box Die from Stampin Up a few years ago. But erm it stayed unused until this week. Anyway, it sure is kinda cute. I decided to use this Mermaid Tail clear stamp from Whimsy Stamps. I got mine from here at Dies to Die for in the UK. The papers are digi from Sweet Shoppe Designs - Like a Mermaid by Meagan's Creations. The Seahorses and shells are dies from Whimsy too. The box is super cute, but I still managed to fit 10 wee chocolate sweets in there. Now to find a cellophane bag to fit it.

I just love these couples over at Bugaboo. And this one is Person to annoy. I have split the sentiment up so I could add the rest inside the card. The papers are digi from Sweet Shoppe Designs. A whole Llama fun. The flowers are MFT dies.
And a wee look inside. I just mirrored the outside really. But did it digitally to keep it flat.
