CCT#331, 332,333 & 334

Mr Blogger did it again!! Flitting about alot the last few weeks, so I scheduled all my posts. Pah!! This is what didn't post.

This challenge was "For the Birds". I used Hero Arts neon ink pads with Stampin' Up and Hero Arts stamps.

The theme here was "Vintage". I've used lots of die-cuts.


"Lots of Lace" here. Tied Together embossing folder with Stampin' Up pearls, stamp and punch.

All Stampin' Up here for the "Clean and Simple" theme.

Really need to keep an eye on this better in future!!

CCT#330 - Fun in the Sun


Hello Thursday yet again! We're having fun in the sun on Cute Card Thursday.For my card I used one of my very favourite stamps which was one of the first I ever bought. It's by Creative Expressions and was made for Joanna Sheen. I've coloured it with Promarkers and Copics. The papers are by Crafty Individuals, as is the sentiment. I've used Impression Obsession dies for the shells and then used real shells on top.

CCT#329 - Pretty Papers


Oh dear - another week has gone by in a blink again!! This week on Cute Card Thursday we're using our pretty papers (well not all of them you understand, there aren't enough cards in the world to hold MY paper collection and some of then will NEVER be cut into lol!). We are sponsored by Whiff of Joy and it's definitely worth entering!

These pretties are from a lovely My Mind's Eye collection paper pad and they co-ordinary with the Stampin' Up colour pallete really well. The flowers and sentiment are Stampin' Up too and I've used a Stampin' Up scalloped border punch on the papers.

CCT#327 - Circles & CCT#328 - Seeing Stars


Last week the theme on Cute Card Thursday was "Circles", which I completely forgot to blog! This card started out as a kit sent to me by my lovely Stampin' Up demo Natalie O'Shea and it contains all the new "In Colours" for this year. I tweaked the card a bit to suit my needs and the result was this.


This week we are looking for stars on your creations. I made this as a postcard for the UK Stampers Forum monthly postcard swap. It's a very "old school" Magnolia "Tilda" stamp and is coloured with Promarkers. The sentiment is Magnolia also. I used a Prima background paper and inked up the Loast Coast stars before colouring them with Promarkers too. The circles are done by dipping an Adirondack dabber top into the ink pad.

CCT#326 - Beside the Seaside


Ooooh - was a little bit poorly there last week so let's just pretend it's Thursday and pop over to the Cute Card Thursday challenge blog to enter this week's seaside theme. We've got a great sponsor again this week with a fabby prize - Whimsy Stamps.

I've used Crafty Indivuals papers and stamps, with the exception of the flock of seagulls, which is a Hobby Arts stamp. The seagull die is by Impression Obsession and the "sand" in the shaker is Distress embossing powder!!

Cute Card Thursday #322 - Text Only


Text only! That was a hard one for me but then I remembered this ancient Crafty Individuals stamp and after selecting this paper from a Wild Rose Studio pad, I matched the Judikins embossing powder (Jasper) and the rest just followed.

Naughty Mr Blogger!

Well, I have been living under the blatantly obvious delusionary state that Mr Blogger has actually been publishing all my Cute Card Thursday scheduled posts. That'll teach me!! I thought it had been quiet on the old blog front (well, a bit more quiet than usual). Here's the cards. Naughty Mr Blogger!!


This was for the theme "Floral Delights" and was this year's Mother's Day card. The image is by Stampin' Up and I coloured with Promarkers/Copics.

 

I made this card for the theme "All Boy". It's using High Hopes stamps, masked off to make the scene. Again coloured with Copics and Promarkers. 

 

A card for the "Easter Treats" theme using a Penny Black stamp and coloured with Promarkers/Copics.


This was for the theme "Splish Splash" and is a Whiff of Joy, Elisabeth Bell stamp.


I made this card for the theme "Blue and Green" and was my DH's birthday card. The idea was from the Impression Obsession blog and the dies are by them. 

Last but by no means least is the current theme's challenge of "Paw Pals". The background is an Impression Obsession stamp coloured with gelatos and the main image is by LeLo designs coloured with Promarkers and Copics.

CCT#313 - It's a Wild World


This week on Cute Card Thursday it's wildlife or animals on your creations. I've used all High Hope stamps and coloured with Copics and Promarkers. It seemed like a good idea at the time but was a LOT of masking and stamping. Never mind - I'm pleased with how it turned out. 

We are sponsored by our fabby regular sponsor Whimsy Stamps who are giving away an amazing prize of 5 free digi stamps to one lucky entrant!

CCT#312 - Girls, girls, girls!


I totally forgot Thursday last week and here we are on a Saturday and I've just remembered again. Sorry - bad blogger!! This week it's all about the girls on Cute Card Thursday. The Design Team really have come up with some beautiful cards for inspiration and one lucky entrant will win a stamp donated by our fabby sponsor Whiff of Joy.

One of my friends had a beautiful baby girl last week so I had a great "girly" reason to make  something for this week's challenge! I've used Stampin' Up card with Spellbinders dies and the flower roses are from Webster's Pages. The sentiment is from Poppicrafts. I know I say it every time but I still miss that shop! The gorgeous sleeping baby is a Sugar Nellie stamp and I've coloured with Copics/Promarkers and finished the cloud with Glamour Dust.  The wall hanging was a wood cut from Calico Crafts and I used K&Co paper with flowers from Orchid Crafts coloured with Promarkers. I cut the name on my Slice, coloured the card with a Promarker to match and used a Waco pearl pen to highlight the letters. Hope you like my little project.

CCT#310 - Spring


Happy Thursday! It's Springtime this week on Cute Card Thursday and we have a great prize from our sponsor Inspired by Stamping so pop on over and have a look.

My card was made using Stampin' Up cardstock, K & Co paper and sentiment and a Penny Black image. I've coloured the stamp with Polychromos pencils and used the Stampin' Up spritzer tool with a Promarker to make the background. The sentiment is Hero Arts. The lovely daisy trim is from our local Craft Shop in Moffat, Crazy Daisy.
