This weeks theme at CCT is One Layer card. I made with my with Neenah Desert Storm card and Copics. The Copics coloured the card really well but they do still bleed through to the back a bit so I will have to put an insert in the card. The stamp is Great Impressions and the sentiment is Lily of the Valley. I have added glossy accents to the berries to make them shiny. I think I will be making more of these cards as they are very quick and easy to do.

This weeks theme at CCT is Anything but a Card. I have made a canvas for the challenge. I painted the canvas with gesso and texture paste which I applied through punchinella and painted with Distress Stains. The dress form is a Tim Holtz movers and shapers die.

Another nice and easy challenge at CCT this week, we would like you to use dies and punches on your card. I have used one of my new Tonic dies, Beautiful Bramble Square and a Spellbinders labels 1 die on my card. The image is Penny Black, which I coloured with Copics and the leaves are punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
I have just treated myself to a Grand Calibur and a couple of A4 embossing folders and a few Tonic die sets, they are fast becoming my favourite range of dies and there are a few more sets that I have my eye on!
I hope you can join us this week as we have another great prize.

This weeks theme at CCT is Awesome Autumn. I decided to make an ATC using one of my favourite Magnolia Edwin images. The image is coloured with Copics and I have added a Magnolia sentiment. The papers are some which I won about 7 years ago!

The theme at CCT this week is another nice and easy one, Too Cute. I have used a Penny Black stamp which I coloured with Copics and a new set of dies from Tonic. I have recently bought a few sets of Tonic dies, I love the intricacy of the patterns, although I have to run them through my Big Shot quite a lot of time to get them to cut!

At last I've made something! I just can't seem to get back into crafting at the moment. The theme at CCT this week is nice and simple, Anything Goes. I have made a tag which I coloured with Distress Stains and added some Tim Holtz die cuts and sentiment.

The theme at CCT this week is For The Birds. I have used 3 wooden bird shapes to make a hanging ornament. I covered the shapes with Tilda papers and added flowers cut with Spellbinders dies, to finish I added some gems and glitter.

This weeks theme at CCT is Reach for the Stars. I have made a very quick Xmas card using a JOFY image which I have stamped onto kraft card and coloured with pencils.
I've been missing the past few weeks mainly due to totally losing my mojo and also the cycling! I try to get out as much as possible and clocked up 91 miles over 4 days last week.

The theme at CCT this week is blues and hues. I have made a card using a vintage image and papers from Maja Design.
I haven't been making cards recently in fact the dies I received a month ago are still in the envelope! I am spending quite a lot of time cycling at the moment and we managed a 25 mile ride on Monday with only a 5 minute rest stop. I'm hoping the weather will be nice again this weekend so we can get out again.

This weeks theme at CCT is Here Comes The Summer. I have used one of my new Penny Black stamps and coloured the image with Distress Markers. The image is cut out using a Spellbinders die and I have added some flowers and glitter. The paper is from the Prima pack I got free with a magazine and the swirls are a Tonic die.
I hope you will be able to join us this week as we have a fab prize. I have pre ordered a couple of Tonic dies so I am hoping they will arrive this week so I can have a play with them over the Bank holiday weekend. The cycling is going ok and I bought myself a new road bike last Sunday and am hoping for some nice weather so I can get some practice in, I'm still not overly confident!

This weeks theme at CCT is Blue and Green. I have used a magnolia Tilda image for my card and Prima card pack which came free with a craft magazine. The image has been coloured with Distress Ink and I have added a die cut flourish cut with a Tonic die. The kraft card has been punched with a Stampin Up punch.
I hope you'll be able to join us this week as we have another fabulous prize. I am hoping for another nice weekend as I want to get out on my bike again. Hubby has decided he wants to do Triathlons so got himself a new road bike and I've decided to try a few bike rides with him!
