CCT Anything Goes

I hope you had a good Christmas and got lots of lovely presents. The theme at CCT this week is Anything Goes. I have made a couple of gift card holders for my nieces.  The cards are made with the recently released Lawn Fawn Woodland Critter Huggers and Stitched Gift Card Pocket dies. I love these critters they are so cute and easy to make. I'm looking forward to having a play with them in the new year to see what other animals I can come up with. The cardstock is also Lawn Fawn.

Happy New Year x

CCT Autumn

This weeks theme at CCT is Autumn. I have used Autumn coloured papers from Cosmo Cricket on my card. I've had these papers for years and they are still among my favourites. I used the Lawn Fawn Leafy Tree Backdrop die and then cut the tree out of it as I didn't want the full background. The leaves are also from the die set. The images and sentiment are from the MFT Sweet Forest Friends set which I water coloured with Zig Clean Color pens. I stamped the plain card with a MFT Mini Hexagon stamp using Versamark to add a bit of texture to it. The sentiment is cut with a MFT Fishtail Flag die.

CCT Too Cute

This weeks theme at CCT is a nice and easy one, Too Cute. I have used lots of Lawn Fawn products on my card as I love their stamps and dies. I used their new Shadow Box dies to create the card and Snow Day and Ready, Set, Snow stamps and dies for the images and sentiment. I coloured the images with Copics and added some glitter to the star. The chunky glitter is Lawn Fawn as is the raspberry cardstock. The green inks are Altenew. I will be using the shadow box dies a lot as they are so easy to use and make a great little box.
