A Couple of Altered CD's

These are CD's I altered as little gifts for a couple of my crafting friends who's birthdays are both today.

I used alcohol inks on one side of the cd and then stamped my Paper Artsy swirls stamp randomly over the cd using black ink. I then used a couple of stamps I got from "I brake for stamps" and stamped using black ink onto blue paper and then mounted the images onto the cd. The other side of the CD's I've covered with scrapbook paper and then I used some K & Co stickers to decorate them.
The challenge on Lots to do Challenges blog this week is to alter a cd :-)

A Couple of Birthday Cards

This first card I made for my good friend Ann, who's birthday it is today.

I used a square card and covered the front with some scrapbook paper. The main image is decoupaged and I then simply added a pink ribbon down the left hand side.

This next card I made for Claire, another of my crafting friends who's birthday is today. I just had to make this card for Claire as she is always buying crafty goodies, so I thought it very apt for her.

This card again is another decoupaged card.

Serendipity Card for Gia

This is a card I made and sent to one of my SBS friends, Gia. I used a lilac square card for my base card. I took some of my little scraps of patterned paper and tore them all into small pieces and stuck them onto an off cut of card.

I then used one of my Paper Artsy stamps and a versamark ink pad and stamped all over the papers. I added gold embossing powder and heated it. I then cut it up into squares and mounted them onto some black and then gold mirror card squares. I took a piece of cream card and stuck these onto it and then mounted the whole thing onto some gold glitter card. I then simply added a pink flower using a little purple brad. This is a great way for using up all the little scraps us crafters love to keep :-)
