Cute Card Thursday - Embossing

Our theme at Cute Card Thursday this week is 'Embossing'. 
As always, we welcome your own interpretation. 

I saw this die cut image online and knew I just had to have it! Living in a winter vacation area we have so many skiers and snowboarders arriving to stay in the ski resorts.



This is a super quick and easy card to make. I die cut the 'Ski Girl' from white cardstock using an Alexandra Renke die from Ellen Hutson.
I used papers from Recollections 'Blue Christmas' 6x6 paper pad and then heat embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder. The sentiment was stamped using MFT's snow globes stamp set (now retired).

The whole scene was adhered onto a standard A2 white card base.

We are sponsored this week by All Dressed Up Stamps, a great prize as always! 
Hope you can join us! See you there!

Thanks for looking!

You Warm my Heart

It's my turn on the Crafty Doodle Chick blog today with a super adorable hedgehog image from Gerda Steiner designs. This stamp set is called Coffee Hedgehog.


I stamped the images and colored them in with my prismacolor pencils. I also stamped the image onto some patterned paper and paper pieced the scarf in place.

For the background window I used Lawn Fawn's Reverse Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Window die set. I love the inside scalloped detail on this die set - it just a little different from the norm.

All of the patterned paper comes from Doodlebug's Cream & Sugar 6x6 paper pad. Super cute and love the way the colors and patterns coordinate so well.

I popped up the sentiment banner and coffee cup on foam dots and added a thin kraft border around the edge to finish the card off! 

A super simple and quick & easy card to make!

Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes

Our theme at Cute Card Thursday this week is 'Anything Goes'. 
As always, we welcome your own interpretation. 

I love the Whimsy Stamps digital images being released this month. This digital image is called 'Noelle' - i love the super cute balloons.


I printed out the image and colored it using my prismacolor pencils. I then fussy cut her out.

I used papers from Simple Stories Classic Christmas 6x6 paper pad and added some bakers twine from my stash. I stamped the sentiment using Whimsy Stamps 'You're My Jolly' stamp set and VersaFine CLAIR Nocturne (black) ink. Some enamel dots from Whimsy Stamps Christmas Cheer collection finished the card off.

MFT Sketch #414

I loved this current sketch #414 from My Favorite Things:


I was also inspired by the current color challenge #106 too:



I decided to combine the 2 challenges for my Santa Christmas card.


I stamped the image using the Jingle all the Way stamp set and colored it in with my prismacolor pencils. I then fussy cut him out.

I used the new Candy Land 6x6 paper pack for the patterned papers on the card, matching the colors to the color challenge.

I stamped the sentiment from the Jingle all the Way stamp set and heat embossed it with transparent embossing powder. I then used the banner die from Blueprints #29 to cut it out.

I added these elements to a hot fudge colored piece of cardstock from my stash and then adhered it all to a standard A2 kraft card base.

Thanks for looking!

Oh What Fun! with Lawn Fawn

It's my turn on the Crafty Doodle Chick blog today using lots of awesome Lawn Fawn products.
They are all on the daily deal today so grab them while stocks last!
I decided to use the Reveal Wheel Add-on to make a square card with the adorable 'Oh What Fun!' stamp set.



I used created the base of the card using both the main Reveal Wheel die set and the Reveal Wheel Square add-on. These cards are easier than you think to make - just look up the Lawn Fawn directions on YouTube.

For the background panel I blended Fade Jeans and Broken China distress oxide inks and then added some drops of water for added interest. I stamped the snowflakes form the 'Oh what fun!' stamp set using Stazon white ink. 

I used the heart from the add on set to create the window and cut out the window frame from some of the left over background panel, along with he mini arrow.

For the sentiment I used the Reveal Wheel Holiday Sentiments stamp set - separating 2 of the sentiment pieces to stamp them separately.





I used Lawn Fawn pixie dust glitter cardstock for the snow hill. I stamped the santa image using the Oh What Fun! stamp set and the trees were stamped from the Winter Skies stamp set. They were all colored with prismacolor pencils and fussy cut before adhering to the card.

I used the insert of the heart that was cut from the front panel to decorate the inside of the card along with the sentiment from the Oh What Fun stamp set.

Whimsy Stamps Bundled Up

One of my new favorite Whimsy Stamps clear stamp sets is the adorable 'Bundled Up' stamp set. The images are just adorable with heart warming sentiments to make the perfect cards.


I stamped the images and colored them with my prismacolor pencils. I then fussy cut them out. 

I decided to make this card into a shaker card.

I die cut the frame using Whimsy Stamps Shaker Maker Rectangles die set. I love the stitching detail it adds to the frame.

I added some stitched hills using the stitched border trio die and stamped the sentiment from the bundled up set directly onto the hill.

I added some shaker elements to my card to match the colors of the images. I used some of the 'Enjoy the Little Things' and 'Stargazer' sequins from Whimsy Stamps.

I stamped out the penguin and ice block images and colored them in with my prismacolor pencils. I added some white gel pen details and wink of stella to some of the penguins clothing. I then fussy cut them out.

I used papers from Doodlebug 'Polar Pals' 6x6 paper pad to coordinate with eh penguins colors.

I stamped the sentiment from Whimsy Stamps 'You're my Jolly' stamp set using VersaFine CLAIR Nocturne (black) ink. I then heat embossed it with clear glitter embossing powder.

I die cut the trees using an MFT die set and added glitter cardstock for the snow on the mountains. The snow hills were cut using the Whimsy Stamps Stitched Border Trio die set.
