#127 Anthing Goes - CD Sunday Plus Challenge

A really quick and simple make from me this time.
My next door neighbours don’t have a printer and often ask if I’ll print something off for them. This time it was an email confirming a visit to feed a sloth! It was a present for their eldest daughter who loves sloths. There was no way I was going to just print off an email for them to hand to her so I made a card!

 


The image is a download from the Crafty Witches site called ‘Take It Easy’ which I layered on dark green card and then on a 5x5 card blank. Inside I glued the part of the email that gave the date and time of the event and what was included. I’m hoping I get to see photos of the day!

The challenge will close on Saturday 2nd March 2024 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.

We also have a Face Book page if you want to enter but don’t have a blog - The CD Sunday Plus Challenge.

#126 Anything Goes - CD Sunday Plus Challenge

 Happy New Year everyone!

Welcome to the first The CD Sunday Plus Challenge of 2024. I’m host for this challenge and I’ve chosen one of my Christmas makes as my design team offering.
I’ve been using my Scan N Cut more and I wanted to have a go at a layered scene and this is what I came up with: 

And this is it with the lights switched on:

 


The original SVG file had open sides which meant you could see all seven layers and the foam tape between the layers. I didn’t like the look of it so filled the gap with card and then decorated it with silver peeloffs.

 


 

Items used:
Downloaded SVG file: Tina Finch Layered Globe Luminaire
White card and peel offs from stash.
Craft Lights: Kit N Caboodle Led string lights. 

The challenge will close on Saturday 17th February 2024 at 1pm.

#125 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.
I know a lot of crafters say that they never make the same card twice but I think if you really like a design then it’s a shame never to make it again. Back in 2015 I made a Christmas card that I really like and I make one almost every year. He’s such a jolly looking Santa that I can’t not use him often on a card. I’ve made them for my design team entry previously and blogged them in 2015 and 2021 (click on the dates) They’re always slightly different.


This time I changed the shape of the central topper and made it circular. I added clear gems this time whereas previously I’ve used Nuvo drops in pink and I used pink mirror card.
Items used:
Serif Craft Artist: Hearts and Roses Christmas, Christmas Bouquet and Posters digi kits. 

The challenge will close on Saturday 23rd December 2023 at 1pm and reopen on Sunday 4th February 2024. See you in the new year!!!!

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.

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.
