CCT Anything Goes

This weeks theme at CCT is Anything Goes. I have made another picture frame using the Tim Holtz Cabinet die and Maja Design papers. The flowers were made with the Spellbinders Bitty Blossom dies and the leaves are a Magnolia Sprawling Ferns die. I added some berries, a birch cone, lace and some cheesecloth and then finished off with Shabby White Fran-tage, Glamour Dust and snowtex. I have cut an easel with the Tim Holtz easel die so that the picture will stand up.

I hope you will be able to join in this weeks challenge.

CCT Anything But A Card

The challenge at CCT this week is Anything but a Card. I have decorated a gift box which I got from Stampin Up with an old Magnolia Santa stamp. I think this is my favourite Christmas stamp and I use it every year. The DP is retired Stampin Up and I have distressed the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.I coloured the image with Distress Inks and also edged the die cut circle with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I have also added some Fran-tage to the image.
 I have decorated the sides of the box with some hessian and lace and added a small tag which I cut with a Tim Holtz sizzix die. The message on the tag was stamped with a set of alphabet stamps which I got from the NEC about 5 years ago, they were a bargain at £1 for the set. This is the first time I've used them but I'm sure they will get lots more use now. The little jingle bells are from Ebay.

I really enjoyed decorating the box and am hoping to do a few more for Christmas pressies.

I am also entering this into this weeks Magnolia Down Under Challenge which is Jingles Bells and the Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia Challenge which is Vintage or Shabby Chic.

CCT So Angelic

The theme this week at CCT is So Angelic. I have made a large tag which I covered with Basic Grey papers. The angel stamp is from a set by Stempelglede which I have had for a few years and the music stamp is from Magnolia. I have used Vintage Photo distress ink around the images and the tag. I have added a flower, pearl and leaves from the Tim Holtz Tattered Pinecone die.

I really enjoyed making this tag, its ages since I made anything 'vintagy' - is that a word!
I hope you'll be able to join us this week.

CCT Animal Magic

The theme at CCT this week is Animal Magic.I have used a super cute Penny Black image for my card which I coloured with Distress Inks and then cut out with a Spellbinders Nestability die. The papers are retired Stampin Up and the snowflake is also a Nestability die. I added a bit of glitter to the image and some gems to the card.

I hope you'll be able to join in this weeks challenge as we have a fab prize from Bunny Zoe.
