CCT Stars and Stripes

Our theme at CCT this week is Stars and Stripes. I decided to make a tag for a change using kraft card and MME papers. The tag and all the other die cuts are Tim Holtz, I love the Scribbles and Splats one they are so useful for backgrounds as are the arrows. The number is from the Alphanumeric set, I got the 3/4" ones as I tend to make smaller cards. The stamp is from Julie Nutting and I coloured parts of it with Prima watercolour pencils. The sentiment is from Autumn Leaves.

CCT Add A Quote

This weeks theme at CCT is Add A Quote. I made my card with Maya design paper and a Stempelglede sentiment stamped onto a Spellbinders die cut oval, which I then layered onto a fancy oval. The colours are lovely light purples but for some reason I couldn't get them to photograph very well.
The flowers and leaves are cut with Tim Holtz tiny tattered flowers dies out of matching paper. I added some glitter to the flowers and some pearls.

CCT Beside The Sea

The theme at CCT this week is Beside The Sea. I have used Graphic 45 papers for my card, I love these papers and have purchased a few different collections. The only extras on the card are some netting, a die cut banner and a starfish which I have had since I worked in the craft shop over 5 years ago!

CCT Colours of Summer

This weeks challenge at CCT is Colours of Summer. I have used a Craftwork cards kit for my card and added a few pearls and some punched butterflies. I rolled the flowers using the quilling tool which comes in the Tim Holtz mini tattered florals dies and it was so much easier.

CCT Lovely Lace

I missed last weeks challenge but have managed a quick card for this weeks which is Lovely Lace. I've started my Xmas cards, mainly because I found this poinsettia die cut already made up in a drawer! The die is a Tim Holtz one and the sentiment is from Inkadinkado.

The theme at CCT this week is clean and simple. I have made a quick anniversary card using this fab stamp from Crafty Individuals which I stamped onto patterned paper and then cut out. I added Distress Glitter to the crowns, a Craftwork Cards sentiment and a bit of doodling round the card edge.

CCT Bonny Blue

This weeks theme at CCT is Bonny Blue. I have made a tag for this challenge which I coloured with Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Inks, it is more vibrant than it shows in the photo. All the stamps are from Ryn Designs, I love the water droplet ones they look so effective.

I hope you all had a good Easter, I didn't manage to do any crafting at all.

CCT Buttons and Bows

The challenge at CCT this week is Buttons and Bows. I have made a little tag using a Hanglar and Stanglar image which I coloured with Distress Markers. The papers are MME which I was lucky enough to win from Michelle you can visit her fab blog The Card Grotto here. I have added some lace and some flowers and a swirl punched with EK Success punches. The bows are in her hair and the button is in the centre of the flower.

I hope you have a good Easter, I don't think we will be doing much apart from lots of extra dog walks and hopefully some bike rides if the weather is nice and I will try and sneek some crafting time!
