CCT#201 - You're a Gem!!

It's Thursday again which means a new challenge from Cute Card Thursday. This week the theme is gems. Nice and easy!! We have a fabby stamp set on offer from My Craft Spot and the DT have, as usual, come up with some beauties for inspiration so pop on over to the CCT blog.

I have used up the scraps from the MME Bloom and Grow papers I used 2 weeks ago (*good girl*) and added a Magnolia image coloured with Promarkers and Glamour Dust. Some Prima bling and punched leaves and corners finish it off.

Gothic Arches - Metallic Fever

It's a new theme of "Metallic Fever" for the next two weeks on Gothic Arches.

I have used paper from Prima "Botanicals" paper pad and over-stamped with a Prima birdcage stamp and Stampendous swirls and dots. I cut the Tim Holtz die out in metal and ran it through an embossing folder. The brown embellishment is a flower I cut off an old top. I then coloured a piece of tissue paper with Distress Inks and covered with Glass Bead Gel. A Prima gem and a bit of tape measure twill for a hanger from PaperArtsy finishes it off.
