Another fab theme this week from Cute Card Thursday - your interpretation of Fancy Corners.
This is a fabby Stampin' Up Sale-a-bration set of 3 stamps which I think lends itself to so many possibilites, but in this instance I've used them all together in a stack. The card is SU also, as is the cupcake punch. I've used Tied Together embossing folder on the background and corners and some Card Candy finishes them off.

Hello it's time for another challenge from Cute Card Thursday and we've gone all floral.
My card is made using alcohol inks on shiny cardstock and the beautiful sentiment, flowers and foliage are all by PaperArtsy. The cute little hats the flowers are wearing are from a set of stamps and dies by this week's sponsor Whimsy Stamps.

My friend Darcy is running a monthly calendar challenge whereby you buy a large square 2015 calendar and every month use prompts to alter it. I am a little late seeing as it is actually now (just) February, but I am hoping Darcy will let me off as it was finished yesterday but just not dry lol!!
This month the calendar started off looking like this. It's not too hideous really but we were told to get one that we don't hate as part of the original design will be incorporated every month. This month the prompts were to have crackle effect and use print on your page.
I started off with PaperArtsy Fresco paint in Sherbert and covered most of the background, barring the two focal butterflies, before putting Ranger Crackle Effects onto the butterflies. I then used a Dylusions stencil and Ranger Adirondack paint for the leaf border. The frames for the butterflies were cut using Nestabilities and they and the bookprint (from Fruit Pixie - they do great little packs of print and music sheets) were coloured with Distress Inks. I then used one of Darcy's own stamps from her PaperArtsy range to stamp the cogs in Fresco paint. It all looked a bit bright so I brushed over some Fresco paint in nougat to tone it down a bit. Some doodling and a a stamped title finish it off.
Right - off to do February's page now!

We're stamping mad this week on Cute Card Thursday and our sponsor is Great Impressions Stamps.
I've used Bildamalarna stamps coloured with Promarkers and Copics. The paper is from BoBunny "Little Miss" paper pad and the card is Bazzil. The dies are Stampin' Up and Marianne's. A couple of little Prima flowers finish it off.

This week on Cute Card Thursday we are trying to banish the January blues by making lovely and colourful creations.
My owl, background and sentiment are a digi stamp from Diane's Daydream Designs, who unfortunately is no longer trading. I've used Stampin' Up cardstock, Nestabilities and a Creative Expressions embossing folder.

This week we're having a laugh on the Cute Card Thursday blog. I've used Prima paper, Stampin' Up card with a Stampin' Up punch and Bazzill brads. The sentiment is by Bildamalarna and the image is by Kenny K for Whimsy Stamps who are our sponsors this week.

I got these gorgeous Stampendous! lips stamps just before Christmas and couldn't wait to use them - I think they are going to be very versatile. I've used Stampin' Up card, Brilliance Ink, some Swarovski bling and sentiment stamps by Anita's and Lost Coast.

Hello - my name is Lynn and it's been a very long time since my last blog post!!
I have had awful problems with bursitis in my shoulder which stopped play, but I did have most of my Cute Card Thursday Design Team cards made months in advance. I just forgot to share them on here. Anyway, here they are.
