CCT Anything Goes

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and got lots of nice pressies. We have a nice and easy theme at CCT this week, Anything Goes. I have painted a wooden 'Love' ornament with acrylic paint and then stamped a few Stampin Up images onto it. The butterfly is a X Cut punch which I have covered with Fran-tage and I have added a few paper flowers. I'm really pleased with how this has turned out especially as it only cost £2 to buy.

CCT Celebrations

The theme at CCT this week is Celebrations and seeing as I'm so far behind with my Christmas card making I have decided to make another 1 for this challenge. I have used the Stampin Up Joyful Christmas set again and also the Gorgeous Grunge set in the background. The border is a Martha Stewart punch and the swirls are EK Success.

CCT Christmas Catch Up

This weeks theme at CCT is Christmas Catch Up. I have made another Christmas card with my Stampin Up Joyful Christmas stamp set and a Stampin Up embossing border folder. I stamped the image onto Crumb Cake card,  coloured it with white ink and then Stampin Up markers to get a very pale watery effect. The sentiment is also stamped and embossed in white.

We had a lovely time in Budapest, the markets were great and we managed a lot of sightseeing as well. Its back to work now and I think the next couple of weeks will be very busy so it looks like I'm going to have to buy most of my cards this year!

CCT Eternal Flame

This weeks challenge at CCT is Eternal Flame. I have decorated a candle using an old Magnolia snowman stamp which I coloured with Distress Inks. 

Hopefully as this post goes live I'll be sat on a plane waiting to take off for a few days in Budapest, can't wait.
