CCT Things With Wings

The theme at CCT this week is things with wings. I made a tag for my mum's 90th birthday using Graphic 45 Botanical Tea papers. The papers have been edged with Distress Ink and I added a Magnolia die cut strip and Tim Holtz die cut numbers.

CCT Chocolate

The theme at CCT this week is Chocolate. I couldn't find anything chocolate related in my stash so went for chocolate coloured papers etc. I inked the edges of the tag with Distress ink and added papers and an image from Maja Design. The poinsettia and lace border are Tim Holtz dies and the fronds are Magnolia. The Poinsettia is cut from vellum, embossed with the matching Tim Holtz embossing folder and I added some gold guilding wax to give a little shimmer. To finish the tag I added some Fran-Tage to the background and glitter to the tree.

We have another great prize this week so I hope you can join us.

CCT Numbers

The theme at CCT this week is numbers. I have made another quick card using Stampin Up stamps and papers. The paper has been distressed with Distress Ink and then I stamped and embossed the images. The sentiment is cut with Stampin Up punches and I added some cotton ribbon, a button and some twine.
The number is on the blue banner!

I hope you'll be able to join us this week as we have another fab prize to give away.

CCT Autumn Leaves

This weeks theme at CCT is Autumn Leaves I have made a tag using one of my favourite Edwin stamps and these lovely papers although I'm sure what make they are. Edwin was coloured with Distress markers and I have used quite a few Tim Holtz thinlit dies for embellishments. The word Autumn was cut with the Alphanumeric dies, the leaves are from the mini Tattered Florals and the swirls are from the Scribbles and Splats set. The scalloped edge is a Die-Namics die and the main tag is another Tim Holtz bigz die.

 I still have a few crafty items to sell but have managed to create a bit of space and I have sold more than I have bought which is good and quite surprising! I also treated myself to a new set of drawers so now have a nice crafty area which is remarkably tidy at the moment.
