Another Sunday comes around and it's time for a new challenge theme over at the CD Sunday Challenge blog. We're doing things a little bit differently now. The winners from last week's challenge, Vintage Love, will announced in a separate post on the blog next week. That means we'll have a new blog post every week so our blog followers will have a reminder in their reading lists. Hopefully this will give people a gentle 'nudge' about the challenge and remind them of when they need to get their entry done by.
So onto the new theme and this time it's Carol's choice and she's chosen 'Up, Up and Away'.
I knew I had a die that would be perfect for this theme (Adventure Landscape Die by Pretty Quick)but needed the 'something from a CD element' so I turned to Craft Artist and found the perfect backing paper in the Classic Transport digi kit. This was glued to a 5 by 7 card blank ready for the die cut.
I don't know if you can tell from the photo but each section in the die cut was glittered individually.
I backed the blue mirri card with double sided adhesive and cut it using my XCut Express machine. You can alter the pressure on the XCut so I adjusted it so that only the mirri card was cut. The double sided adhesive just had cuts in the backing so I was able to peel it away from each section and add glitter without it going into other sections. The topper was then added to the card using foam tape to add height.
I finished the card by stamping Up, Up & Away! down the left hand side. This was originally one stamp but I cut the words out so I could space them out up the side.
Don't forget that the CD Sunday Challenge is all about making items using craft CD Roms. You can use other craft items on your card/project, such as a stamp or die as in my card, but you must include something from a CD. So if you like colouring stamped images or digis you can still enter the challenge but you must include something from a CD such as a backing paper, a sentiment or a butterfly for example. In your blog post/Facebook entry you must give the name of the CD you've used. This is important if the items you've used can be bought as a download as well as a CD as the Design Team can't tell which has been used unless you tell us. Your entry can't be considered for a prize if you haven't used a CD or if you haven't told us the name of the CD in your post. The Design Team still leave comments on your blog but there's no chance of winning if the above hasn't been followed.
We now have a Facebook page if you don't have a blog - The CD Sunday Challenge.
