No matter what I do, I cannot get a good photo of this card!! The background looks all muddy when it's really lovely, vibrant Brushos. Anyway, take my word for it! The rest of the card is made with
Stampin' Up punch and stamps and a few bits of sprinkles.

I seemed to have missed a week of my life somewhere! Maybe it's down the back of the sofa .....
Anyway, it's definitely Thursday so that means another challenge from Cute Card Thursday and this week we want to see your creations with strips, stars or both! I am greedy so I went for both.
This gorgeous image is a downloaded image from our fabby sponsor All Dressed Up and I've coloured her with Promarkers and Copics. The paper is a digital download from Designer Digitals and I've used Stampin' Up card and Martha Stewart and Stampin' Up punches.

A nice easy one this week on the Cute Card Thursday challenge blog. We all love our dies and punches right? Well I certainly do!! Our sponsor this week is Bunny Zoe's Crafts so pop over to the blog for all the details.
The flowers and matching punch are from Stampin' Up, as is the cardstock and the oval punches. The bling was bought from Bunny Zoe's and is Prima E-line (sadly no longer available anywhere it seems!). The paper is from an ancient pad from Joanna Sheen.

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.
