CCT 254 A Different Corner

The challenge at CCT this week is A Different Corner. I have used a couple of stamps on my card which I got from QVC many years ago and this is the first time I have used them!! The images were stamped with Versamagic ink and I added a bit of glitter to the flower heads. The sentiment is Hero Arts and I added a punched butterfly and a piece of bakers twine. The corner has been rounded with a punch seeing as my Corner Chomper broke.

Have a good week.

CCT Out of This World

The challenge at CCT this week is Out of This World and we have a fab prize from Rick St Dennis designs. I have used a digi image from Rick St Dennis called Gloria Glowbug, isn't she fab. I coloured the image with Copics and added some old Rusty Pickle DP which I cut with the Die-namics Fishtail Stax.

I hope you'll be able to join in this week's challenge.

CCT Diamonds Are Forever

This weeks challenge at CCT is Diamonds Are Forever and we have a great prize from Whimsy stamps. I have been using my Stampin Up goodies again to make this weeks card. I stamped the flourish from the Elements of Style set and the sentiment in Crumb Cake ink. I used a Stampin Up pen in Rose Red to stamp the Hummingbird image which I cut out and 3D onto the flourish. The border was cut with a Finishing Touch Edgelit and I added a little gem to the flourish. The white card was embossed with the Lacey Brocade Embossing Folder.  Another very quick and simple card.

Have a good week.

CCT Beat the Blues

This weeks theme at CCT is Beat the Blues. As I don't have any humorous stamps I decided to make a blue card. The butterflies are from the Stampin Up set Papillon Potpourri which I stamped with Aegean Blue Versamagic ink. I stamped and punched another 3 butterflies using the Elegant Butterfly punch and added 3 pearls on each of them. The white card is embossed using a SU Lacey Brocade embossing folder and I added some seam binding from the Ribbon Girl. I bought myself a Big Shot this week and I can't believe how much better it is at embossing card than the Cuttlebug.

I hope you will be able to join in this weeks challenge as we have a great prize from Whiff of Joy. Have a good week.

CCT250 Something New

This weeks challenge at CCT is Something New. I made a card, giftbag and decorated another mannequin using some of the new Stampin Up goodies which I got for Christmas to make a giftset for my daughter's friends 18th birthday. The mannequin is very similar to the one which I made before, just a few if the stamped images and trims are different. The stamp sets I have used are Elements of Style, and Papillon Potpourri. The decorative edge is a Stampin Up Finishing Touches Edgelit and the letters were cut on the Cricut.

I hope you all enjoyed your New Year celebrations. We got another dog on New Years Day, I have lots of photos but they are all on my phone and I don't know how to transfer them to the PC so I will add some later when one of the kiddies gets up!!!
Have a good week.
