Jude's First Christmas

This is the card I made for our latest Grandson's first Christmas.

I made this using a BCE template. The baby's 1st Christmas paper was printed from a CD by Graphicizm. The letters were stamped and embossed using stamps by Dimension Fourth and I used Crystal Lacquer on them. A Spellbinder die and MS punch made the snowflake and I dipped a foam heart in glitter for the center.

I'm entering this in the following challenge at Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes.

This is a new challenge blog and is their first challenge. I wish them lots of success and fun along the way.

F is for ...

... Festive Fun. Caz chose our theme this week.

For my card art CD Sunday Challenge Blog this week I've chosen this image from La Pashe Christmas with the Wrinklies. I ran the backing paper through an embossing folder (Tied Together) and attached small gems all over. I cut out the main image and edged it with a gold peel off after mounting it on a die cut Spellbinder bauble. I then added a bow and a couple of dies. The fir branch is by Marianne and the pine cone from Joanna Sheen's Signature Dies.

Simply Square

Jenny has chosen the challenge this week at CD Sunday and she has chosen Simply Square. I think square is my favourite shape for cards :-) so thank you Jenny for choosing this challenge.

I used Christmas in Holly Pond Hill CD for my image and backing paper. Not all of the images are "too cute" and I think this little bird delivering a present is lovely. The dies I've used are a square one by Spellbinders, ivy corners are a Marianne die and the one at the back is a honeycomb die by Simon Says Stamp.

I hope you will be able to join us this week.

Pennant Parade

This week at the CD Sunday Challenge it is Sue's turn to choose our theme of the week and she has chosen Pennant Parade. As you will see all the team have had fun with this one so I do hope you will feel inspired to join in.

Here is my card for this week:

I used Popcorn the Bear CD by Crafters Companion for the backing paper and paper piecing on the main stamped image. I coloured Popcorn using Spectrum Noir pens. They have a blog with some useful tutorials about colouring their images which is useful to refer to if you are not sure how to get started. The heart banner is made using a die by La La Land. 

I do hope you will join us again this week, we had some super entries for our challenge last week and I have the difficult task of picking the top three so don't forget to check back next Sunday on the  CD Sunday Challenge blog. xx

It's my turn to choose the theme for CD Sunday this week and I've chosen STRIPEY. Hopefully everyone will be able to find something stripey on a CD and join in this week.

Here is my card:

I used Pollyanna Pickering's British Wildlife CD for my paper and image this week. After printing off the backing paper I used a Crafter's Companion embossing folder to give it some texture and then rubbed over the top with a distress ink. The die cut vase and flowers and Tattered Lace dies. The ivy corners are a Marianne die.

Sorry to be so late posting today but I've not been feeling too well. Don't forget to visit the CD Sunday Challenge Blog for lots more inspiration.
