CD Sunday - 'Stepping Out'

Good morning.  Well I have certainly been 'Stepping Out' with Jocelyn's chosen theme.  I have just returned from another little trip away. This time to a crafting friend and her husband in Northumberland.  By golly it is a long way and the M1 is .....! (This is a public blog and I need to be polite).  Despite the journeys I had a wonderful time.
Back to earth though.  I found a beautiful image on an old CD that I purchased many years ago when I first started crafting.  It was one of a set of 3 and came from America.  The one I used is called - Victorian Edwardian Images Volume 2.
Here is the card I made:
I printed the image on Photographic paper as it seemed to bring the Victorian colouring to life.  I found another image of lots of forget me nots elsewhere and printed that out on good quality paper and punched out some of the flowers with my Pinflair punch and attached them with a smidgin of glue to add a 3D effect.  The matt layer behind the boot was a peice of bronzed card I found and this seemed just the right colour.  The bow, of course, is die cut, using the same card as the base card and a darker lining.

Whilst I was making the above card what should fall through the letterbox but the new Ooh La La  CD - The Paula Oakley Collection.  As I have a new Great Nephew and found a suitable 'Stepping Out' image on the CD to use for his 1st Birthday I went ahead and made it.  It uses a card from the Quick Card section.  I printed it out twice so I could decoupage and added a pretty toning bow.

So two 'Stepping's Out' for the price of one.  I enjoyed making both and I hope you will search your CD's for suitable piccies and  join in with our challenge.
See you on your Blogs.


  1. Two gorgeous card, love both images.

  2. Two gorgeous cards Carol, the first is a little different to the normal shoe and boots you see on CD's and the second is a great image either for young birthdays or births. I love them both anyway.
