CCT Dies and Punches

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.

CCT Too Cute

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!

CCT Rainbows

The theme at CCT this week is rainbows, I have cheated slightly because I couldn't find anything with a rainbow on it so I have used this Penny Black sticker which has all the colours of the rainbow on it.

CCT Reach for the Stars

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.

CCT Blues and Hues

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.

CCT Here Comes The Summer

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!
