Second Time Around

Carol has chosen the theme for this new challenge at CD Sunday Challenge Blog and she would like to see something recycled along with something from a CD used in your makes.


To make this card I used:

Downton Abbey CD from Crafter's Companion for the main image and pink backing paper
Perfume bottle die from Crafter's Companion
Stamp and greeting banner die from Apple Blossom
and some flower dies

and here is what I have recycled:


I'm looking forward to seeing what you use for second time around along with a CD. Don't forget to check out CD Sunday Challenge Blog or our facebook page for how to enter.

Beautiful Blooms

It's my turn to chose the theme for CD Sunday Challenge Blog and my theme is 'Beautiful Blooms'.

I have made this card for a friend who is expecting a baby.


The backing paper is from The Dreamy Flowers Collection CD by Hinny Bop Designs. I printed one off in the original colour of yellow shades for the strip and paper piecing for the dress and also printed another sheet of the same design in monotone. All my layers are matted onto a charcoal coloured card. The oval dies are by Crea-Nest-Lies XXL No. 23. I used an Altenew stamp set for the central flowers and leaves and the little figure holding her baby bump is a rubber stamp by Crafty Sentiments Designs called Welcome Little One.

I then die cut a piece of shrink plastic (something I haven't used for ages) and stamped it with a wooden stamp I've had for a very long time along with some leaves from the Altenew set. I then die cut a few leaves from a Britannia die which is a strip of leaves using some sticky backed paper.

I do hope you will craft along with us and join in this challenge. For all the details of how to enter and also our few little rules we would like you to follow just go on over to the CD Sunday Challenge Blog.

Happy 8th Birthday to CD Sunday Challenge Blog

Its time for the Birthday Challenge at CD Sunday and on the 18th April the challenge will be 8 years old! As it is Carol's birthday this month as well she has chosen our theme and she has designed a sketch for us to follow/interpret.

Here it is:



I hope you will have lots of fun with this and don't forget to use some element from a crafting CD and tell us which CD you used. For more inspiration do go to CD Sunday Challenge Blog and see what my fellow teamies have been doing.

Here is my card:



I used The Lace Collection CD by Creative Crafting World for my backing papers which I mounted onto a pretty shade of blue card

Ingredients:

Rub down foiled butterflies from Crafters Companion
Embossed Jug and Doily embossing folder by Joanna Sheen
Die cut stitches ovals by Creative
Flower stems and fronds by Elizabeth crafts
The flowers are made using a small floral die which I think was from Britannia. The top part of the flowers I cut by hand from the lilac backing paper with tiny gems added for the centres.

I am looking forward to visiting your blogs to see what you do with Carol's sketch. Don't forget if you don't have a blog you can also enter via our Facebook page. There are some fabulous prizes to be won so don't forget to join us in celebrating our 8th birthday.

No patterned papers

Meg is challenging us this time around at CD Sunday with 'no patterned papers'.

Here is my offering




I used Fairyopolis CD by Crafter's Companion for the decoupaged fairy on the front. There are some lovely little fairies on this CD using the artwork of Cicely Mary Barker. It is a triple disc set and I used my image from the Spring folder.  I mounted this onto some green card cut with an edge die and added some pretty yellow spotty ribbon.


Here you can see the layers of decoupage raised up on foam pads. 


Inside the card I made a pop up greeting using a stamp from Lili of the Valley and a Wiper die from Tattered Lace which makes the mechanism for the pop up. I added a panel for a written message and the daffodil die cut is from Joanna Sheen's Signature collection.

Happy Easter everyone and I hope the Easter Bunny has smiled upon you this weekend. I'm just trying to get over a cold that sneaked up on me just as I was recovering from a stomach bug I got while we were in India! Hopefully I've had my share for a while.
