CCT Anything Goes

We have a nice and easy theme at CCT this week, Anything Goes. I've decided to make a start on my Xmas cards and have used the Snowy stamp from Penny Black. I've been after this stamp for a long time and managed to buy it from a selling site on Facebook, although I think it has recently been re released. The image is coloured with Copics and I paper pieced his scarf and hat using Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Christmas papers. The dies are by Die-Namics and the background paper is from the same Lawn Fawn pad. I added some Creative Expressions Iced Snow beneath the snowman and Diamond Sprinkles on his hat.

The theme at CCT this week is Clean and Simple. I have made a card using just white and kraft card. The background stitched quilt die is by Lil Inkers and the dandelions were a bargain from Ebay, they were 99p for the 2! I have recently bought quite a few unbranded dies from Ebay and they cut really well and are so inexpensive. The sentiment is Magnolia and has been heat embossed in white.

Hopefully this will post ok as we are away in Devon for a few days and I have scheduled the post.

CCT Family

The theme at CCT this week is family, perfect timing for me as its my hubbys birthday at the beginning of August so I have made a card for the children to give him. I stamped this cute Penny Black image onto watercolour card and coloured it with my new Kuretake Clean Color pens. I highly recommend these as they blend so easily and have some lovely pale as well as vibrant colours. The 'dad' is cut with Tim Holtz Sizzix Alphanumeric dies and the bone and sentiment are from the Avery Elle Furry Friends stamp and die set. I doodled a border to the image.

CCT In The Round

This weeks theme at CCT is In The Round. I recently treated myself to the Making Waves dies by Neat and Tangled,I think it is such a nice set. The stamps and matching dies are Lawn Fawn and I coloured the images with Copics. The circles in the background are another new stamp from Neat and Tangled, called falling Circles. The fishtails tags are a Die-Namics die.

I've ordered myself a set of Kuretake Clean Color brush pens which will hopefully arrive today or tomorrow, I'm looking forward to having a play with them. I've watched a few You Tube videos but any tips would be great.
