This weeks challenge over at our Nutshells blog is Shades of Green in celebration of the upcoming ST. Patricks Day.
I have chosen to use one of our NEW Cutie Pie stamps for my card - Luna Cupcake Fairy.

This is one of my favourite colour combinations, I love green on its own, but through in a touch of pink and I'm in heaven! I have finished my card with lots of sparkle (you can never have too much) and a cute cherry charm.
We also have a great prize for one lucky winner, their choice of Cutie Pie stamp and bag of co-ordinating charms.

Head over now to see some fab examples from our DT and grab all the info you need to enter :)

Thanks for stopping by, Katie.

BLOG HOP UPDATE (Monday 22nd Feb)
To ensure everyone has the chance to view all stops along the hop we are keeping it open until Midnight tonight (Monday)
Remember, you can win a stamp from each blog stop along the hop, and the full collection here, but you MUST comment at each blog, starting with Cathy.
Thank you, Katie and Colette
Here we are at long last... our very first Nutcrafters Blog Hop.
In celebration of our NEW Cutie Pie Stamp range, which is released tomorrow, we have lots of prizes to give away.
Our Cutie Pies each come with their own accessory and sentiment stamp, and are so versatile they can be used in many different ways, and are ideal for Mothers day.

For our Gift Bag we have used Birthday Girl Aster and her accessory stamp to create our own patterned paper.

We are the finishing stop on our blog hop route, so in case you have arrived here first, below is the order of the hop:

Here (Nutcrafters Blog)

Be sure to visit each one, leave your comment and head back here.

Each blog along our hop has the Cutie Pie stamp shown up for grabs, and one lucky winner who has commented at each stop and finished here with us will win all 6 stamps.

We have two previously unshown stamps to share today, so without further ado, meet Thankful Rae.

She comes with matching sentiment and Butterfly stamp, so don't waste a second 'hop' along to see them all, and as the card says 'Thanks a Bunch'!

Luna is one of our favourites from our NEW Cutiepie range to be released next week. She comes adorned in her Princess Gown and Crown and with Fairy wings to boot, what more could a girl ask for ... how about her little frog companion and a super sweet sentiment!

Thanks for stopping by, Katie and Colette.

Toady's card has a little bit of something old and something NEW!

The old is our vintage papers and distressed style, the New is another of our Cutiepies stamp range- Ballerina Aster, who comes with ballet shoes and matching sentiment.

We have coloured her in grey shades to give the impression of the image being an old photo and finished the card with a camera charm.

Aster will be available with the full collection of Cutiepie stamps on Monday 22nd February, but don't forget we have our very first blog hop here on Sunday 21st February with the chance to win lots of prizes.

Our Fabulous DT also have some wonderful snippets and previews on their blogs, so be sure to head over for a peak.

Thanks for stopping by, Katie and Colette

A little late I know (after spending most of yesterday on England's busy motorways and getting nowhere fast) our fun week starts here...

Meet RAE SHOPPING from our newline of CUTIEPIE stamps, each set comes with character image, accessory stamp and sentiment.
All week we will be previewing the new designs with some fab card examples and projects here and through out our DT blogs, and finishing on Sunday with our very first blog hop!

The hop will be extra special as there will be two final reveals of this new line and the chance to win not only each stamp shown on each blog, but the entire collection.

So please check back and join us each day for our week of CUTIEPIE previews and all the information to win!

Why do Monday mornings always come round so quickly? I think its a sign of a good weekend, if you don't want it to end!
We are back today with another Monday Spotlight, and how cute is today's stamp - Wild Spout Bree! Now available at 15%off, she reminds me a little of a Girl Guide or Scout in her uniform and satchel.
Delivering her little envelopes I thought she would be great put together with our new Prima Clear Postcard Stamp. This is a wonderful stamp packed with detail despite its size and even comes with a row of sparkly crystals, one of which is on Bree's hat.

I can see myself inking her up again over the coming week as she would make a fab Valentines card.

Don't forget you have until tomorrow to enter our current Nutty Nutshells Challenge, and we will be back with a brand new challenge on Wednesday.

Thanks for stopping by, Katie.

Each week we are going to have a feature on our blog with a shinning bright spotlight poised over a selection of products from our store, be they brand spanking new or old favourites we want to remind you of, they will be the stars of the Spotlight showcase!

And for the week the product is featured, it will be available to by at a special rate.

For our first showcase we have one of the great new Mo Manning stamps from Stampavie.
End of Summer is an adorable image, and can be used for so many occasions, including those sometimes awkward teenage cards ;)!

I have coloured the image with Promarkers and decorated my card with Prima flowers, Imaginisce brads and a Tag Charm.

Thanks for stopping by, Katie.
