CCT Something Metallic

This weeks theme at CCT is Something Metallic. I am making a start on my Christmas cards as I'm doing overtime each week until Xmas and most of our weekends are going to be busy. I stamped 'Snowy' by Penny Black and added a little colour with Copics and paper pieced his hat and scarf. The stamp in the corner was a magazine freebie and I embossed it with Tim Holtz sticky embossing powder and added some Creative Expressions glitter. It doesn't show up too well in the photo but it is very sparkly in real life. The metallic part of my card is the silver mirri card behind the white layer.

I hope you all have a good week, we are off to Lyon on Saturday for a couple of days.

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.
