CD Sunday 'Art Deco'

Good Morning. I hope you are all having a relaxing weekend.

Our challenge at CD Sunday this time is Art Deco. A lovely glamorous theme chosen by Margaret.  I loved all your entries from the last challenge and the winner will be posted next Sunday.

                                         I have used a CD by Debbie Moore Art Deco 'Decadent Moments'

The card was a commissioned card for a glamorous lady. The white card stock was covered with designer paper and the image printed off from the CD. I placed it on a matt of cerise pink mirri card. The sentiment was die cut from the same mirri card. The name tag was some pink peel offs I'd had for eons and they matched perfectly.

I hope you'll be joining us for this challenge. For more inspiration please pop over top CD Sunday (link in sidebar)

Don't forget there's always a great prize on offer. As this is a CD challenge blog you must use something from a CD, however small, and tell us which CD you used.

Have fun!!

'Happy 5th Birthday' to the Dragonflies!!

Good Morning everyone. Doesn't time fly!! It's Birthday time at Crafting with Dragonflies. A 5th Birthday to be precise. So naturally we are asking for your lovely Birthday cards for this challenge. We have four sponsors for this challenge. So prizes available for this 5th Birthday challenge and lots of inspiration from the design team.

Our generous sponsors are....

The Paper Shelter
Whoopsi Daisy
We Are 3
Digistamps 4Joy

There are lots of prizes from our generous sponsors for this challenge. Full details on Crafting with Dragonflies challenge blog. (Link in sidebar)

Here is my inspiration for you.

I made this as a commissioned card for someone who loves CAKE!! The main card is made using Hunkydory's adorable scoreable card.  It was an insert but I decided to use it as a card front as it fitted perfectly with the commission.

The large cake was a googled image as was the sentiment. Peel off letters were used for the recipient's name and Happy Birthday.

I hope you'll be inspired to join us for our challenge. As this is our birthday celebration challenge we have been kindly sponsored by lots of generous people. You will find a list of our sponsors and what you can win on the Crafting with Dragonflies challenge blog (link in sidebar)

Sorry I can't list them here but I am out of the country at this moment in time and this post was scheduled before the sponsors list and prizes had been finalised.

CD Sunday 'Anything Goes'

Good Morning. I hope life is being kind to you and having a relaxing weekend. It was a our Birthday Sketch challenge last time. Thank you to all who entered. The results will be up on the main challenge blog next Sunday. Fingers crossed you were a winner!!
This time it was my turn to choose the theme and I went for an old favourite 'Anything Goes'. Here is my inspiration for you.

                                              I used a  CD from Debbie Moore 'Victorian Weddings'

I started with white card stock and cut out two frames....for front and back. Then adhered them at the top to create a tent style fold. I added the image to the centre and the sentiment strip from the CD. Finally a row of gems were added to the top and bottom of the card.

I hope you'll be inspired to join us. For more lovely creations please pop over to the main challenge blog (link in sidebar) 

Don't forget there's always a yummy prize on offer. This is a CD challenge so something from a CD, however small, must be used and please tell us which CD it is from.

Have fun!!

'Twisted Easel' with the Dragonflies

Good Morning. A very quick post from me today as I'm scheduling lots because I have decided to leave the island to visit my friends and family in the UK for a couple of months.
The challenge at Crafting with Dragonflies is for a Twisted Easel card.
Here is my inspiration for you. This is made using some new stash from Hunky Dory. It's part of their Easter Range.

There are lots of tutorials on Youtube if you want to see how to make a simple Twisted Easel Card.......much better than my explanation. But it really is easy!!

I hope you enjoy this challenge. Don't forget it's a card only challenge and for fun only!! Link in sidebar to challenge blog.

Have fun!!

CD Sunday..... Sketch challenge .....theme 'Birthdays'

Good Morning and a very Happy Birthday to CD Sunday. It is our 8th Birthday. Also it is a special birthday for  our lovely leader Carol. ''Happy ???? Birthday Carol. I hope you have a lovely day and are thoroughly spoilt!!!'' There are special prizes on offer for this special Birthday challenge. Please pop over to CD Sunday (link in sidebar)to take a peep at the prize.
For this challenge Carol has chosen a Sketch for us to follow.
                                                Here is my interpretation of the sketch.

                                         Using the CD by  Debbie Moore 'Elegant Moments'

I started with white card stock folded landscape orientation. Then covered it with designer paper from the CD. I die cut a scalloped frame for the image . This was added to the border strips which you can also find on the CD. To the corner I added some embellishments from the CD and finally the sentiment to the other border strip.

I hope you'll be tempted to join us. As usual there's a yummy prize on offer. Pop over to the main challenge blog for more inspiration. Don't forget to use something from a CD, however small, and tell us which CD you've used.

Have fun!!

Dragonflies 'Dies and Punches'

Good Morning. Another quick scheduled post from me.
It's time for another challenge at Crafting with Dragonflies. This time we like you to use dies or/and punches for your creation.
Here is my inspiration for you.

I started with embossed white card stock. The corners are die cut, as are the hearts ....bottom right....The trellis arch and larger heart are also die cuts. Also the greeting 'Congratulations'. The card was finished off with gems and a ribbon bow. The photograph peeping through the trellis window is of the happy couple.

For more inspiration please pop over to Crafting with Dragonflies (link in sidebar)
Remember this is a cards only challenge for fun.

Have a lovely weekend and take care.

CD Sunday 'No Patterened Papers'

Good Morning crafters. I hope you are enjoying your Easter weekend. Happy Easter to you all.
I have scheduled this post so not sure what the weather will be like but if you're in the UK I hope there's some sunshine as I'm visiting there at the moment. Catching up with friends and family !!
At CD Sunday this fortnight our challenge is for you to make something that does not make use of patterned papers. It has been chosen by Meg. Ooohhh a bit of a challenge eh! But go on I know you can do it.
Here is my inspiration for you. (Appropriately for this time of the year I have made my challenge card as an Easter card.)

CD Joanne Sheen ' Hollyhill Pond'
I have used a new me. It's quite simply card stock folded tent style with the bottom corners folded back then covered with a matt to hide the join!! I covered the inside with paper from a Lidl's pad. I used a border embossing folder for the top strip and a damask folder for the 'triangle' matt. The tag was an image from the CD 'Holly Hill Pond' from Joanne Sheen. I die cut card with a scalloped oval die then added the image. Then I added some ribbon to the top so the tag can be removed easily. This is where I'll put my hand written message. The Easter egg baskets were snippets from the decoupage sheet on this CD. The sentiment tag is also on this CD and as there is a facility to add your own text I was able to add my own greeting.
A view showing how the card stands up.
I hope you'll be inspired to join us for this challenge. For more inspiration pop over to the main challenge blog (link in sidebar) and see what the rest of he team have made. Last time's challenge winner for 'Rabbit Rabbit' will be announced next Sunday.
Don't forget there's always a great prize on offer and the main rule is that you must use something from a CD and tell us what it is.
Have fun!!
