Hello friends! Hope that you had a wonderful weekend! I enjoyed spending time with hubby as he always makes me laugh…we have fun together no matter what we do!
Today I’d like to share another new creation I made from the Whimsy Stamps new August Digital release. I fell in love with these guys and thought it would be perfect on just a simple little design:
This cute image is called Pups in a Basket. I like that you can almost create any type of color or breed with this image by coloring it however you want. So I found this adorable image online that I wanted to try and resemble the breed/coloring of:
Are these guys just as cute and fluffy as can be?! I want to pet them! LOL! Of course the real thing has got to be the best! 🙂 And how cute would it be to add a red hankerchief to one of these pups on the image? So many fun things to possibly do with them!
I used some plaid papers I had in my stash and I wanted them to be somewhat neutral in color due to the accents of blue. I’ve white heat embossed the banner at the top with the Whimsy Stamps Everyday Mini Sentiments stamp set. Cut out all the panels with some dies and attached them to a top folding white A2 sized card base. Lastly, I found some blue sequins to match and added some glitter accents to the centers.
Here’s a closer look at the image:
I’ve used my Copic markers to color it in and couldn’t help but also add some rosy cheeks with a white dot for hightlights on them too! This was so fun to color and how fun would this be to make up for someone with a new best friend!
So what type of breed or color(s) do you see in this image? I’d love to know what you think!
Thanks so much for stopping in today! Hope you’ve enjoyed my card and I’ll be back again soon to share more!

It’s Thursday and time for a new challenge at Cute Card Thursday! If you are not challenged by the title of the challenge blog, then let’s get even cuter by making the challenge this week “TOO CUTE“!! LOL! We’re looking forward to seeing your cute creations in the gallery!
Our sponsor this week is Kinda Cute and they have kindly donated an image that I have used on my card for you today:
When I saw this image, I thought this was perfect for the challenge theme! I have used the Fairy and Snail digital stamp from our sponsor. I printed it out and colored it in with Copic markers. I have used a white gel pen for certain areas and I have added some Spectrum Noir clear glitter pen over the fairy wings. I have also used some Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops for some sparkle underneath the snail where it’s wet from his ‘slithering path’.
I have also taken the Lawn Fawn stamp set Stinkin’ Cute (of course) and stamped the sentiment above the image in the top right corner. I also decided to take the solid heart from the set and stamp a few purple hearts between the characters. I also took some linen thread to make a tiny bow because I thought the fairy would look CUTE with one on her curly hair! LOL!
I cut the image panel out with the My Favorite Things Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle STAX die and then sponged some Tumbled Glass distress ink around the edges of it. I mounted it onto a piece of black cardstock and then I wanted to add some ribbon to it so I took my slot punch and punched out a hole on each end of the image panel to slip some silk purple ribbon around it. I tied a bow and added it over top to the right side. I then found some purple dotted papers and cut out a panel with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables die to cut it out with. The purple ribbon was secured onto the back of this piece and then mounted onto a white top folding card base. Before sticking down the image panel, I put some fun foam on the back for a bit of dimension.
Hope you like my “CUTE” card for today and I hope you’ll stop by the Cute Card Thursday challenge blog to see more CUTE inspiration and join us for the challenge this week!

Hello again friends! It’s Thursday and time for another Cute Card Thursday challenge! Woot! This week’s challenge is a Clean and Simple or CAS style theme! I hope you can play along with us and share your CAS creations too! We can’t wait to see what you come up with! Here’s the card that I’ve made:
I have used our sponsor’s image for this week from Kinda Cute called Girl and Balloons digital stamp. I wanted to use some soft colors for the balloons and I have used my Copic markers to color in the image.
I have also taken some distress ink and a cloud stencil to create the cloudy background behind her. I’ve also added a stamped sentiment from my stash. I cut the image panel down to size so that it fit inside the black stitched and scallop rectangle die cut and mounted it over top. I used some foam tape and mounted this entire piece onto a white A2 sized top folding card base.
In this photo you can better see the details with the Spectrum Noir Glitter brush pen as well as the hightlights I’ve made with a white gel pen in her cheeks and balloons. I had fun coloring this cute image! Hope you’ve enjoyed it too!

It’s that time of the week again, my friends, for another CUTE CARD THURSDAY CHALLENGE! The theme for this week is an appropriate “Sun, Sea or Sand” challenge. As hot as it’s going to be this weekend, I think I’d take the sea waters out of those three choices! 🙂 But since I’m inside the air conditioning, I decided to go ahead and use all three of them for my card today:
Our sponsor for this week is All Dressed Up Stamps. I have chosen to use this fun Summer Time digital stamp for my card. I first printed out my image and colored her in with my Copics. I then used the Molotow masking liquid -(Dick Blick was the cheapest found for me in the U.S.) to cover it up (yeah, it gave me a bit of a heart attach, but it worked!) and once it dried, I used several different stencils and distress inks with a blending tool to create the beach scene behind her.
I have used a craft knife to cut a small slit in one of the waves just enough for the beach ball (MFT Penguins in Paradise) to fit inside so that it looks to be floating along the water. I just used my Copic markers to make the dotted lines for the beach sand. The sun (Lawn Fawn Spring Showers dies) was die cut from some glitter paper that I also colored with a yellow Copic marker. The sentiment along the edge is from a Tim Holtz sticker book. The front panel cut from MFT Wonky Stitched dies and mounted on a top folding A2 sized white card base.
I hope you will stop by the Cute Card Thursday challenge and check out the rest of the inspiration from the design team and join along with us this week! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!
