Cute Card Thursday - Autumn

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

I love the adorable animal die sets from My Favorite Things and this Racoon Cutie worked perfectly for a fall themed card.


I used cardstock from my stash to die cut the raccoon and glued it all together. It is super easy to make using these dies as there are impressions left by the die to show you where to place the other pieces. I finished the raccoon off by adding enamel dots for his eyes.

I used Autumn papers from my stash of Echo Park collections. The sentiment is from one of the coordinating sticker sheets. I adhered it all onto a standard A2 white card base, popping up the raccoon head with pop dots.

We are sponsored this week by All Dressed Up Stamps, a great prize as always!

    Whimsy Stamps September Digital Stamp Release

    It is the start of the new Whimsy Stamps digital release for August - another awesome release!

    I used the awesome 'Starla' mage by CC Designs, available from the Whimsy Store.


    I printed the image onto white cardstock and used my prismacolor pencils to color her in. I then fussy cut her out.

    I wanted to make this card look like a comic book page - the Peekaboo Window 2 die was perfect for this. I cut out the panel from white cardstock and adhered it onto a background using paper from Echo Park's Super Hero Mini Theme kit. I fussy cut the word bubbles from one of the papers in this collection and adhered these on top.

    I popped Starla up on pop dots and then adhered the whole panel onto a standard A2 white card base.

    Don't forget to check out the latest Whimsy Stamps Digital Stamp release this month - lots of great images for any occasion.

    This is also my design team card for this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge 'Anything Goes'. We are sponsored this week by Whimsy Stamps - a great prize as always.

    Whimsy Stamps September Digital Stamp Release

    It is the start of the new Whimsy Stamps digital release for September - another awesome release!

    I used the adorable 'Bobby's Halloween' image, available from the Whimsy Store.


    I printed the image onto white cardstock and used my prismacolor pencils to color him in. I then fussy cut him out. 

    I used a variety of Halloween papers from my stash to create the card background. The sentiment was a cut apart from one of the papers.

    I finished the card off with some purple bakers twine and adhered it all to a black standard A2 card base.

    Cute Card Thursday - Anything but a Card

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

    I love all of the penguin images designed by Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy Stamps. This one is called Penguin's Cake


    I printed the image onto white cardstock and colored it in with my prismacolor pencils. I then fussy cut it out. 

    I made a small gift bag out of black cardstock.

    I used the Whimsy Stamps Gingham Background stamp with worn lipstick distress oxide to create the background panel.

    I used Whimsy Stamps Wavy Edgers die set to create the scalloped border on the white cardstock panel at the top. I cut a vellum banner using Whimsy Stamps Shaker Maker Banner die set.

    I adhered all of this onto the black gift bag, and finished it off with some black sticker strips, enamel dots and ribbon.

    I love how this turned out!

    Another favorite penguin image of mine is from the Penguin Gardener digital stamp set available at Whimsy Stamps


    I printed the image onto white cardstock and colored it in with my prismacolor pencils. I then fussy cut it out. 

    I used the Darice Wire Fence embossing folder from Whimsy Stamps to create the background (difficult to see in the photograph).

    I used Whimsy Stamps Wavy Edgers die set to create the scalloped border on the colored dotted paper.

    I printed the sentiment from the Penguin Gardener digital stamp set onto white cardstock and then cut it into a thin banner.

      There are so many gorgeous possibilities with these stamps, dies, papers and goodies!
      This is a super simple, super quick card to make. I used the 'rainbow' sentiment strip die in the kit to cut out the bottom white  cardstock panel. I used an older die from Whimsy Stamps to cut out the word 'wishes' from the panel (unfortunately this die set is now retired).

      I adhered the white panel onto the bottom of the rainbow patterned cardstock from the pad in the kit. This was then cut to 4" x 5.25" and mounted onto a white cardstock panel just slightly larger. This was then adhered onto a standard A2 black card base.

      This was finished off with some fussy cut hearts from the patterned paper pad.


      Each kit is a $50+ retail value for only $29.95 plus shipping.

      Cute Card Thursday - Add a Quote

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

      Another of the newly released images this month is the adorable 'Pip' designed by CCDesigns available at Whimsy Stamps


      I printed the image onto white cardstock and colored her in with my prismacolor pencils. I then fussy cut her out. 

      I used Whimsy Stamps Peekaboo Window 2 Die to create the background, along with Autumn themed papers from my stash.

      The quote is from one of Echo Park's ephemera pieces from my stash.

      I finished the card by adding a red border and enamel dots.

        I cut a panel of patterned cardstock from the pad in the kit and mounted it onto some plain blue cardstock from my stash. I adhered this onto a standard A2 white card base.
