Cute Card Thursday Challenge!

Today I have a card I made for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge. Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps just happens to be the sponsor for this week!

Wow, this was different for me. The challenge is to use only primary colours, blue, yellow and red. Well, my colours are as primary as I can get them and I am kinda happy with all those bright colours even though I would never put them together like this normally. I know somebody will love to get a bright card with a cute penguin on it

I used Oliver the penguin from the new release of Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I just love him (or her, if you want to make him into Olivia. I've seen some gorgeous Ollie creations done in pinks) and he's the perfect size for using in some of our Nesties. I used Brilliant Blue for my card base and stitched some YoYo Yellow onto it with red thread. I used pieces of Cricut Celebrations on the yellow and stitched the striped rectangle. I used some more Brilliant Blue behind Oliver after running it through my Small Mosaics EF. I used my oval Nesties for the image, which is coloured with S.U. markers and repeated the red patterned paper for the scalloped layer. I used the Cheers sentiment, also from the new Kimmie Stamps release and finished off with some red and blue snowflakes and some royal blue polka dot ribbon.

Don't forget that the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge for this week is to make a card with some kind of a tag on it, you have till Friday to work on that and then on Saturday there will be a brand new challenge for you.

Till then, happy stamping and God Bless you.


  1. I love it too, the colours are lovely and bright and that stitching just makes it all cosy and warm looking.

  2. Lovely job Mom! And I love all the colourful stitching!!

  3. This card is adorable. The lovely stitching really pulls everything together. You are right; someone would love to get this cheery card.
