#124 Anything Goes - CD Sunday Plus Challenge

As usual the theme is Anything Goes at The CD Sunday Plus Challenge - remember you must have used something printed from a CD, a USB or a digital download, you must state where the item used is from and you must make a physical item and not a digital one.

When someone I know has a big birthday I like to make what I call my showstopper card! I’ve made several in the past for 60th, 70th and 80th birthdays. An Aunt will be 90 in January so I’ll be making one for her after Christmas.

 

The design is a downloaded SVG file and cut on my Scan N Cut. I’ve had my machine for years and I’m getting more into using it.
Items used:
Sandra’s Scrapshop (closed): - Bow card SVG file.
Crafter’s Companion: Flowery paper from Garden Gnomes 12 x 12 paper pad. Gemini Stitch Edge Oval dies.
Plain pink 12 x 12 card, lace, numbers and gems from my stash.

The challenge will close on Saturday 9th December 2023 at 1pm.

Don't forget that the CD Sunday Plus Challenge is now about making items using something printed from a craft CD Rom, USB or digital download. You can use other craft items on your card/project, such as a stamp or die, but you must include something printed from the new categories. You must also make a physical item and not a digital one. In your blog post/Facebook entry you must give the name of the printed item you've used.

My team mate Carol (who writes the blog posts) likes to make cards with stitching on. Her stitching is far better than mine so don’t look too closely Carol LOL!
I saw this stitch pattern on a Facebook post and liked it so much I bought it from Add Some Sparkle. 

 

I didn’t like the decoupage sheets that came with the stitch pattern so I used a topper printed from a CD. The three angels have been printed twice and one layer used for decoupage. I don’t enjoy fussy cutting so it’s rare to see me cut anything out!

So far this is my one and only Christmas card made for this Christmas. I think I’d better get a wriggle on LOL!
Items used:
Stitch pattern: Stitch & Do Kit 137 Big Guys Christmas.
CD image: My Craft Studio The Best of MCS Christmas (bought in 2012!).
Tonic Studios: Craft Perfect card stock in red and green.
Crafts Too: Coconut White Essentials Card.

#122 Anything Goes - CD Sunday Plus Challenge

Thanks to everyone who entered the last challenge. I’ve picked my Top Three favourite entries and they’ll be announced in Challenge #123 on 12th November. You made it very difficult for me as there were lots of Halloween entries and I love Halloween!

My design team make for the last challenge was for a swap I belong to and I included these lollipop holders as an extra gift.

They were made using my Scan N Cut and a SVG file bought from Design Bundles. I was able to use scraps of card for the embellishments which is always a bonus! You can’t see lolly sticks in the photo because they were pushed into a cardboard box so the holders would stand up to be photographed. I think my favourites are the cat and Frankenstein.  

The challenge will close on Saturday 11th November 2023 at 1pm.

I’ve been using my Scan N Cut more and I really like all the layered SVG files that are available these days. Previously I’ve made a Christmas and Easter layered wreath and this time I’ve made a Halloween one. 

 

The card I used is quite thin so I’ve cut each layer 4 times and glued them together. There’s 5 layers, each a different colour, and I’ve used foam pads to separate them. It was quite difficult to add the foam pads as the cut lines are very slim – especially the top black layer.
The ghosts had holes for eyes and I couldn’t resist adding googly eyes!

 



Items used:
Design Bundles: SVG file called Happy Halloween wreath.
Card stock from my stash that I’ve had many years!

#120 Anything Goes - CD Sunday Plus Challenge

As usual the theme is Anything Goes at The CD Sunday Plus Challenge - remember you must have used something printed from a CD, a USB or a digital download, you must state where the item used is from and you must make a physical item and not a digital one.

For this challenge I have a few more ATCs to share with you. Back in May this year the UK saw the coronation of King Charles III. The theme for one of my groups was ‘Anything With A Mouse’. This coincided with Carnation Crafts bringing out a die set and matching downloaded vignettes to mark the coronation. The dies were the perfect size to fit on ATCs.


In this group we make 2 ATCs for the main theme plus an ‘extra’ ATC on a different theme which this time was ‘Potted Plants’ (the third ATC in the photo above).

I wanted everyone in the group to have a memento of the coronation so also made these ATCs:



And not to be left out myself I made these to keep:




Items used:
Carnation Crafts: Proud To Be die set and matching vignette, Coronation die set and matching vignette.
Serif Craft Artist: Paddington’s Day Out and Rosebudds Garden digi kit.

The challenge will close on Saturday 14th October 2023 at 1pm.
