Get Well Soon - CD Sunday DT

Today I'm showing a card I started a while ago, I finally got around to finishing it recently, this is my DT card for CD Sunday where we have the theme of 'Get well' . The image is from Sheena 's Paint CD Pansies are one of my favourite flowers so I enjoyed doing the layers on these flowers. I also used an MS punch for the ribbon band, inked some edges of the papers and finished off with some flat backed pearls.

Fancy Folds - Ooh-La-La DT

Our theme this week over at Ooh-La-La Creations blog is 'Fancy Folds', a favourite theme for me along with Easel cardsThis one is a variation of a Shutter Card. It uses images from one of my favourite CD's - Everyday Occasions, the BP was printed direct to the cardstock and I highlighted the edges with ink, I printed an extra of the main images but enlarged it so I could cut them out and stick to the main card with Pinflair glue.

Quilted Fun - CD Sunday DT

This time our theme at CD Sunday is 'Quilted Fun', I've been trying to use bits and pieces from my printed box, it's overflowing with all those images and papers I printed when I got the CD's and for whatever reason didn't get around to using all or some of.  My image is from Swalk by Crafters Companion, the quilted look BP I'm not sure if got it like that or if it was one of my experiments in Craft Artist. All the buttons are punched from patterned papers and then I used glaze to finish them. I used an MS punch for the centre strip, then added another strip with more glazed paper buttons. I finished off with Waco Pearl drops on the corners.

At last I can get onto Blogger, I'm only a day late for this posting, I wasn't able to get it to load all last week for some reason, so frustrating.
