Anything Goes for Cute Card Thursday!

Hello friends!  It’s time for an easy peasy “ANYTHING GOES” challenge over at Cute Card Thursday this week!!  Our monthly sponsor Whimsy Stamps will be joining us this week and I’m thrilled to share some of those products on my card today:


I have used this really sweet digital stamp on my card called “Penguin Loves Bunny“!  He is holding him ever so tightly and not wanting to let go!! 🙂

As I’m trying to get back into the swing of things here, I wanted to be sure to join some challenges and so I’ve picked out a nice sketch to start my card with here.  (See the details below the post for all challenges.)  I’ve been wanting to get out these yummy plaid papers that I’ve had for a couple of years.  This seemed like the perfect image for that too!

So I took the panel of plaid papers and layered it with some kraft cardstock.  I took some white organdy ribbon and wrapped a piece around the left side of it and tied on a bow at the top before attaching it to the upper right of my A2 sized top folding white card base.  I’ve cut out the image with an oval die and then layered another oval piece that was cut out with the kraft cardstock.  This oval panel was layered over the plaid.

I took a sentiment from the Whimsy Stamps Everyday Mini Sentiment clear stamp set and stamped the “miss you” underneath the image.  I also used the Whimsy Stamps Friend Word & Shadow die set to cut a piece of vellum with the shadow and then cut the word out with some pink cardstock and then attached them right underneath the stamped “miss you” sentiment.  Lastly, I’ve added some of the pink enamel dots from the Whimsy Stamps It’s a Party enamel dots set.


Here’s a closer look at the coloring of this image.  I’ve colored it in with Copic markers in the following colors:

  • Penguin:  C8, C5, C3, C1, Y38, Y35, Y32, R00
  • Bunny:  E47, E44, E42, E41, W5, W3, W1, R20, R11, R00

I also used a blender 0 and a white gel pen for cheeks and bunny tail


I thought this image would be so fun for Easter too!!  I can see it used in so many different ways!  It’s a new digital release for the month of March at Whimsy Stamps, so it would be a great one to pick up!!
