CD Sunday Plus #45

 Good Morning everyone. It's time for our next challenge at CD Sunday Plus. It's 'Anything Goes' as long you use either a CD, USB or digi download when making your project. Also don't forget to tell us your source.

Here is my inspiration for you.





I used a square, scalloped. pre scored card as my base. The background and image are from the fabulous CD by Ooh La La 'Say it with words'. 

The Quotation:

 "Perhaps STRENGTH doesn't lie in never having been broken....

 .....but in the courage to grow STRONG in the broken places."


It's my turn to host this challenge and I'm looking forward to visiting your blogs to see your creations. 

Have a lovely week and stay safe!!

#44 CD Sunday Plus

 Good Morning Crafters. I hope everyone is keeping safe and well in these crazy times. WE are still merrily crafting away at CD Sunday Plus and the challenge as usual is 'Anything Goes'. The rule is that you use something from a CD, USB or download when creating your project. 


Here is  my inspiration for you.



I used a white pre folded scalloped card as my base. The CD used is from Debbie Moore 'Art Deco Christmas Dreams' I have also used some adorable scorable card from Hunkydory.

I have added some mustard Hunkydory card in strips on top of the background poinsettia paper to add interest. I then placed a poinsettia centrally and an oblong poinsettia spray in the top left corner. Then I placed the sentiment bottom right. I finally added gold gems to the central image and mustard strips.

Jo is our hostess with the mostess for this challenge and I'm sure she is looking forward to visiting you soon to see what you've been inspired to make. Don't forget it doesn't have to be a card . It could be a plaque, ATC, Journal page, scrap book layout etc etc. As long as you follow the rules. For more inspiration pop over the main blog at CD Sunday Plus ( link in sidebar).

Have a great week crafting and if you leave a comment Thank You. All comments are read and appreciated.

#104 Unstampabelles

Are you ready for another challenge at Unstampabelles/ It's a new month so a new challenge for you.

Our challenge title is Phoenix (rising from the ashes)

This could be salvaging a craft disaster, getting a career after a slow start, recovering from an illness i.e Breast Cancer or even celebrating a Divorce. So let your imagination run wild with this one. The optional twist is to use an embossing folder

Here is my inspiration for you.



This a an A4 card with background paper from Hunky Dory. The sentiment/verse is one I have in my stash and sadly I have used it several times to send to girl friends who have been  fighting this nasty disease! 

I added the pink ribbon to create a hanger for the plaque verse. This could be removed from the card quite easily.

This is just one idea. For more inspiration pop over to Unstampabelles (link in sidebar) to see ideas from the Design Team. Remember NO STAMPS please as we are UNSTAMPabelles.

Have a great time creating and I look forward to visiting your blogs real soon. Thank you for visiting and if you leave a comment , Thank You, they are all read and appreciated.

#43 CD Sunday Plus

Good Morning crafters. It's time for our latest challenge at CD Sunday Plus. As usual it's 'Anything Goes' as long as you use something from a CD, USB or digi download and tell us your source. It doesn't have to be the main focus of your make, which means it could be the background, tag or sentiment etc.

Here is my inspiration for you.



                    ( This is looking a bit too blue as the light wasn't good when I took the photo.)

I started with A4 card stock and folded it portrait. Then I was having a browse through my Hunky Dory insert papers and found this lovely delicate image of an Owl in Winter. I thought it would make a lovely Christmas card. I've not used the inserts before as the main image but I think it worked.

The tag/sentiment  is from an Ooh La La CD 'Xmas Presence'. I added silver ribbon and a star gem to the tag. Et Voila!!

For more inspiration pop over to the CD Sunday Plus Home page to see what the rest of the team have created. (link in side bar) Remember it doesn't have to be a card it could be anything paper craft related.

Have a good week and take care out there!!

#42 CD Sunday Plus

Good Morning crafters. It's time for our next challenge at CD Sunday Plus. This time it's hosted by our lovely Jocelyn and as usual it's 'Anything Goes' as long as you use something from a CD, USB or digi download anywhere on your creation.

Here is my inspiration for you.



I started with a white card blank and added a scalloped matt of blue. Then printed a background from a CD by Ooh La 'Christmas Presence'. I have started making my Christmas cards during lockdown and I found this lovely Nativity scene in my Hunky Dory stash.

It's from there decoupage range. It's been an age since I did any decoupage so this turned into a real treat for me and got my mojo going any. Think it's been in lockdown too!!

I printed off the tag from the same CD and added some silver ribbon which had the silver angels wings and stars attached. It was a roll I had in my stash from Lidls.

I hope I've inspired. Maybe you've started Christmas early too like me!!

I hope you're enjoying a relaxing Sunday. Thank you for visiting and if you leave a comment an extra thank you. All your comments are read and appreciated.

Unstampabelles

Good Evening everyone to all in the UK and Good Morning to Tasmania. Our new challenge at Unstampabelles begins today and this time it's 'Good News'. The optional twist is to make your own background. As usual there is a gift voucher prize for the winner.

Here is my inspiration for you.



I began with A4 white card stock and folded it landscape orientation. I used a corner punch to round the corners.

I then created the background using embossed card and corner die cuts. I then added gem stones.

I used a template to cut two large hearts.....one blue and one white. (This was a commissioned card and the customer asked for it to include blue, hence my colour palette.) Then I die cut the Love heart and smaller blue heart. The sparkly number 60 was then added to the blue heart.

I generated the two Greetings using the CD Card Making Factory DeLuxe.

I hope you'll be joining us this month. Please click on the link Unstampabelles in the sidebar to see what the rest of the team have created.

Take care out there!!!!

Happy Crafting!

CD Sunday Plus

Good Morning everyone. Well it's great to back with you all again. I've been having P.C. problems . So I have not been able to access my blog. 

It's time for our next challenge at CD Sunday Plus and as usual it's 'Anything Goes' as long as you use something from a CD, USB or Download in your creation. It could be a card, altered book, boxes, ATC, scrap book  anything as long as you use something, however small, from the aforementioned.

I began with a scalloped square card. The background and image are from Hunky Dory. The CD element is the Greeting which is from a lovely CD by Joanne Sheen 'Holly Hill Pond'. This is a great go to CD and I use it quite often.
