#39 Anything Goes - CD Sunday Plus


The theme for the CD Sunday Plus Challenge is Anything Goes. You must have used something printed from a CD, a USB or a digital download and you must state where the item used is from.

I belong to a birthday card swap group on a forum and this card was made for the next birthday on the list.

I started with an 8 by 8 card blank and cut it into a hexagon shape using a die. I then cut the backing paper with a smaller hexagon die.  








The middle hexagon has a cream backing plate behind it. I finished the card with burgundy pearls but the camera makes them look like beads with holes in – and they say the camera never lies!


Items used:

8 x 8 card blank from Creative Crafting World as is the sentiment on the inside.

Backing paper is from a Tattered Lace USB Ultimate Magazine Collection Issues 1 – 40 (paper is from issue 12).

Tonic Studios Craft Perfect card in Crimson Silk.

Tonic Studios Peony Hexagon Layering Die Set – also used to make card blank.

Card Making Magic Fancy Hexagons Die Set.

The challenge will close on Saturday 18th July 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. In your blog post/Facebook entry you must give the name of the printed item you've used.

#38 Anything Goes - CD Sunday Plus


The theme for the CD Sunday Plus Challenge is Anything Goes. You must have used something printed from a CD, a USB or a digital download and you must state where the item used is from.

In my previous blog post I mentioned a street party that was held for the VE Day celebrations. We had a great time and laughed a lot! I don’t drink alcohol but my neighbours do and as the evening progressed the stories became funnier and funnier. My card depicts a very funny story that one of my neighbours told us – I won’t repeat the story as you ‘had to be there’ to appreciate how funny it was. The scene was created in Serif Craft Artist.



  

Items used:

Creative Crafting World 5 by 7 landscape card blank.

Digi kits used – Craft Scapes Landscapes, Craft Scapes Italian Escapes, Craft Scapes Stately Home and Pirates.



The challenge will close on Saturday 4th July at 1pm.

#37 Anything Goes - CD Sunday Plus


The theme for the CD Sunday Plus Challenge is Anything Goes. You must have used something printed from a CD, a USB or a digital download and you must state where the item used is from.

For the 75th VE Day celebrations my neighbours and I had a ‘street’ party. We’re at the end of a cul-de-sac and sat in the middle of the road whilst keeping to social distancing rules. During the course of the evening I found out it was my neighbour’s birthday in a couple of days and her husband hadn’t been able to buy a card because of the lockdown. So I made this card for him to give to her.




I covered an 8 by 8 card blank with a rose embossed card from Tonic Studios. The next layer was printed from the same CD as the flowers and embossed using a Tonic folder. The floral arrangement is a charisma printed from a My Craft Studio CD and die cut using the matching dies for both the flowers and the leaves. The card was finished off with a gold Happy Birthday peel off.

Items used:

Tonic Studio Ivory Toile card from Tonic monthly kit no.15.

Tonic Studio Just For You Dimensional Embossing Folder and Die Set.

My Craft Studio CD Magical Midnight for the pink backing card and also the flower and foliage charisma.

Magical Midnight Just Because flower and foliage die and Anniversary Bouquet foliage die.



The challenge will close on Saturday 20th June at 1pm.

#36 Anything Goes - CD Sunday Plus


The theme for the CD Sunday Plus Challenge is Anything Goes. You must have used something printed from a CD, a USB or a digital download and you must state where the item used is from.



This card just ‘evolved’! I’d printed off the backing paper and adhered it to the card blank without any thought as to what I would do next. I then had a rummage through my background/panel dies. I cut the panel twice from the green card which left a thick border across the middle of the card. I then hid the join by cutting a scalloped rectangle from pink card and added a Birthday Wishes sentiment.

The flourishes are two separate dies – a right and left hand flourish.

  

Items used:
Backing Paper is printed from a Tattered Lace USB Ultimate Magazine Collection Issues 1-40 (paper is from issue 12).
Tonics Classic Quatrefoil Patterned Panel Die.
Spellbinders Scalloped Rectangle die.
Cheery Lyn Fanciful Flourish Left and Right dies.
Sentiment from Paper Boutique Birthday Wishes Doily Die.
Green card and pearls from stash and pink card I think is Hunkydory.

The challenge will close on Saturday 6th June at 1pm.
