CCT#423 - No Patterned Papers


A perfect challenge this week for me on the Cute Card Thursday blog as I had this new (to me) beautiful floral stamp from Stampin' Up to use! 

The image was stamped onto smooth card and then coloured with Prismacolor pencils. I used Sansodor spirit and paper stumps for the blending and am pleased with how it came out. The sentiment is from PaperArtsy and I made the little butterflies with a Martha Stewart punch. The cardstock is from Stampin' Up.

CCT#422 - Add a Quote


Something a bit different on Cute Card Thursday this week - add a quote to your creation!

I've used this sweet pre-coloured image from our sponsor Di's Digi Stamps and used Designer Digitals pape rand Stampin Up cardstock and stamp for the sentiment. It was a nice, speedy card to put together and I would highly recommend having a look at the pre-coloured images for when oua re in a real hurry!

CCT#421 - Handmade Embellishments



Ooops - last week slipped away from me somewhat! Anyway the theme on Cute Card Thursday is to make your own embellishments and I went a bit mad with this one lol!

I have used this cute little ditigal image from our sponsor All Dressed Up called "A Time to Share" and she's been coloured with Promarkers and Copics. The papers were all from a Craft Assylum paper pad and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up. The card was cut out using a die.

CCT#420 - Something Shiny


Shine on, shine on! Something shiny is the theme this week on the Cute Card Thursday challenge blog and we are sponsored by Bunny Zoe's Closing Down Sale witha £10 gift certificate - which will go a very long way with all the huge reductions in the store!


 I've used one of Kate Crane's Stampotique stamps for this little desk calendar. I coloured her with Polychromos pencils for a wee change and used Stampin' Up card to make the flippy desk thingy (technical term) that has a lovely set of post-it notes and a pencil inside. I made the little balloon with Stampin' Up's new honeycomb paper embellishments and some wire. The gems are from Prima and the sentiment was made using a WRMK foil pen. I got a large pack of these pencils from the £1 shop years ago and they keep coming in handy!

CCT#419 - Transport

This week on Cute Card Thursday we have a theme of "transport" and as our brand new sponsor is the fabby Magnolialicious I thought it was time to get the Magnolia stamps out again. 


I started by stamping Edwin and then masked him off whilst I stamped the car. I then coloured everything with Promarkers and Copics and used white and silver Posca pens for accents. All the stamping was then masked and I used Promarkers and a pen spritzer to colour the background. The sentiment is by Stampin' Up, as is the cardstock. It was huge fun to make!

CCT#418 - To Die For!


A nice easy challenge this week on Cute Card Thursday. If you use a die somewhere on your crafty make you will be in with a chance of winning 3 digi images of your choice from our sponsor Sherri Baldy - My Besties.

I've used a cutie My Besties digi stamp and coloured her with Promarkers and Copics. I used Sizzix Bigz XL die "Fancy Crate" to cut out the little container. I also used dies for the letters and little teacups and saucers around the edges. The sentiment and punch are from Stampin Up, as are the card and papers. The teapot and teaspoon charms were from a craft fair. To finish, I popped some nice herbal teas into a bag and tied them with matching ribbon for a nice little gift!
