Pull Out Flower basket card

Hey everyone I actually have a mid week post the week, welllll sort of. I was going through my photos of cards I made last year and I found this one. The only problem is is that I either didn’t take photos or I already deleted them. But I have the details from another card that I made at the same time that I did post last year. Exact same measurements exact same technique just different colours. So I thought I would share this pretty pink and red one today and I am linking to the directions from the one from last year if you want to know all of the dies that I’ve used and the measurements and how I cut and assembled. Here is the LINK to last years card.

The cardstock is all from Stampin Up and the colours are either Real Red or Ridinghood Red, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Garden Green, Crumb Cake, and possibly Creamy Caramel.

The diesets used are the Woven Basket box card Pop up and the Flower Pot pop up die set, both from Karen Burniston.

Basket Ball Pop-Up card

I pulled this card together pretty quick, my daughter needed a Birthday card for a friend who loves basketball and I was trying to think of how I could make a really neat basketball themed card and then it came to me, I could make a pop-up basketball net out of the Coffee Cup Pop-up and I did 🙂  I had to feel my way through making this card as the sizing was a bit off so I had to make some adjustments along the way, but all in all, I think it turned out pretty good.

Never More Than a Thought Away-C4C554

Sorry I’ve been MIA, but I’m here with a fun card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge blog. I did make this card back in July, my mom was quite ill and this is a card I made for her. I haven’t had the chance to post it yet, and it just happens to fit this weeks challenge which is ……… to create a slimline card. Slimline cards have become quite popular these days so Karen Burniston came up with an alternative design for her Circle Tagbook Pop up die set, and I couldn’t wait to give it a go. This is my version…..

Guess Who Loves You- C4C548

Helllo, and happy weekend. Sorry I have been MIA, but I am here this week with a card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges blog challenge. This weeks challenge is a design challenge so I thought it was a good one to jump back in on. I have been completely strapped for time so I decided to give myself another challenge, and that was to ONLY use products that I already have out from other projects. So everything I used are items that I already had either on my work table or things that weren’t quite put away yet, with the exception of the little stamps for the greeting on the front. (I don’t call it My Messy Craftroom for nothing 😂)

Lol if you look close you can see the owls eyes in the blue basket on the right side 🤦🏻‍♀️

Here is the sketch for this weeks challenge

And here is my card

Blooming Flowers Pop Up Card

So I know Mother’s Day was last month, but I didn’t get the chance to post this card, and since the card theme can change with just a change of the greeting I thought I would post it anyway. I got this idea from a 50th Birthday Card that Karen Burniston made, I thought it would be fun to do it with flowers so I gave it a go.

The thing that makes this card so fun is that the front is clear plastic, so you get a peak of the inside but don’t get the full effect until it is opened.

Sssshhhhh Moms Belated Birthday Card

Edit- I have many people ask where to get this dieset, unfortunately it is not longer available (possibly on eBay or Amazon) it is called the Accordion Ring die set from Karen Burniston. Currently she has the Fancy Label Accordion dieset for sale on her website. Same idea just a different shape.

I am soooo far behind in everything this year 🙄 here is a belated card for my mom. The postal service is so far behind here I’m not sure when’s she’s going to get it, she still hasn’t gotten her Mother’s Day card 🙄. Anyway this is what I came up with

Surprise Elephant Birthday Card-C4C527

Welcome to the weekend Woo Hoo, is it just me or was this a really long week, wow. With all the craziness going on right now with the COVID-19 I am looking forward to a quiet weekend and hopefully some time in my craft space. I am so anxious to share this card, it cracks me up every time I open it. Lol 😆 I have been looking forward to making this card ever since I saw Karen Aiken’s Monkey Card for some reason I kept thinking the ovals would make great elephant ears.

This card is also a Crazy4Challenges challenge and this weeks challenge was a design challenge. I had to use a sketch for the front of the card and I was free to do the inside however I wanted. And this is what I came up with.

Snowflake Mobile C4C512- inspiration from a card

Hello, we are working our way through November, and I am on week 4 of hosting the Crazy4Challenges blog. I was trying to be creative with my challenges, so for this week I challenges the group to use a card that had been given to them as inspiration, it was allowed to be a homemade card or a store bought card. I choose a store bought birthday card I had received from my children, I like monochromatic cards, and this one had a peek-a-boo window that I thought would be fun. I added a pop out arm to create a mobile 😊
