Cute Card Thursday - Monochrome

Our theme at Cute Card Thursday this week is 'Monochrome'.
As always, we welcome your own interpretation. 
We had a new sponsor this week - SherriBaldy Designs. We got to choose from a number of 'My Bestie' images - here is the one I chose to use - super cute! I love the big eyes!


I used scraps of paper from my stash, along with some baker's twine 
and a rub-on sentiment.

From The Heart Stamps - Stamp of the Month August

I'm back in blog land! Now we have moved house, finally repaired the flood in the basement and the kids are back at school - I finally have time to craft! It has felt so good today - with the weather wet and miserable outside.

Here is the Stamp of the Month from From the Heart Stamps - Candy Cane for Snowman. Faith has a number of super cute snowmen in her shop at the moment with lots more to come - she has challenged herself to design 100 snowmen hopefully by Christmas! I always choose a theme for my cards each year - reindeer were the hot topic last year - I think it may be snowmen this year, so wait for all the snowmen cards and crafts to start appearing on my blog!! :)

I decided to make a gift bag with this image for a change! The stamps work so well on cards, but I love to change them up and do something a little different once in a while! I will also make a matching Christmas Card with this image at a later date.


I'm a little late to game, but I based the design loosely around sketch #114 on the blog:


I love that I can use the sketches for different purposes.
I used my Prismacolor pencils for the images; 
papers and sticker embellishments from Echo Park; ribbon, snowflakes, 
bling and glitter from my stash.

From The Heart Stamps is also having a DT Call!! 
I thought I would give it a go - you never know right?? Fingers crossed!

Cute Card Thursday - One Word

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

This card has 2 images from Bugaboo Stamps - Groom 1 and Groom 3
I was trying to find images that looked like the friends who are getting married.


I colored them using my prismacolor pencils and kept it simple with plain black and white cardstock. I added a touch of color with bakers twine.

Cute Card Thursday - Water

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

This is another Birdbrain Chick image (Birdbath Chick) from From the Hearts Stamps. I mirrored the image using my Silhouette software so it was facing the other way.



I used the current sketch from From The Heart Stamps #113:


I turned this sketch upside down! I used Pink Paislee's 'Indigo Blue' collection of papers, along with my prismacolor pencils and some Doodlebug alphas.

We are sponsored this week by Whimsy, a great prize as always!
