Christmas in July with Crece T

Hello everyone Crece here today to share a couple of little items I have created...and yes they are for CHRISTMAS! It will soon be upon us so I always try and make a start on a few projects to get ahead of the rush for Christmas cards, tags and things.

First I would like to share a Printers Tray I created featuring some awesome Scrapmatts Christmas chipboard pieces and my 2 sons Andy & Fletch.

I have used one of the New products that are going to be released soon, its a large 4 Square Printers Tray.... and I coloured it using a Brilliance Pearlescent Dew Drop Ink in Poppy.

The Christmas Tree and stars come from the Chipboard pack CB5143 Christmas Trees 06
I have used  Brilliance Pearlescent Dew Drop Ink in Moonlight White  and Galaxy Gold to colour the stars I then used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Pine Needle to colour the tree. The base of the tree I used Red Star and Gold Star Gelly Roll Stardust pens.

The beautiful word Believe comes from the chipboard pack CB6111 Assorted Words 27 and I inked that with the Brilliance Ink in Moonlight White.

The words on the bottom right are from the pack CB6097 Assorted Words 19 this was also inked with  Brilliance Ink in Moonlight White.

Next I'm sharing with you a Christmas Card and Tag set.

I really love how pretty the words from the chipboard pack CB6111 Assorted Words 27  look, I have used them in the above project and again on this card and tag using the word JOY,  I inked 'JOY' with the Brilliance Ink in Moonlight White.

I have also used the beautiful CB5144 Layered Poinsettias 01, I coloured them using a Brilliance Pearlescent Dew Drop Ink in Poppy, the leaves were inked with a light green ink from my stash.

I also cut up some CB5130 Circle Mesh 03 and inked it with Brilliance Ink in Moonlight White and tucked it under the strip of paper to add another layer to the card and tag.

The tag I used was CB3003 Tags 01
