Birthday Pivot Twist slimline card-C4C576

Hello, hello, I felt like trying something I haven’t done yet when making this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge card. This weeks challenge is a sketch challenge, which means I follow the sketch for the front, but I can do whatever I want on the inside. I decided to do a fun pop up mechanism, using multiple die sets.

Here is the sketch

And this is what I came up with

I say this with every interactive card but this one definitely has all the fun is in the reveal, to see this card in action please check out my FACEBOOK page, feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations. You can also see a video of this card on my INSTAGRAM page.

Retro games pop up- C4C575

This card was actually a double challenge for me LOL. This weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge was to create a card using 2 or more stencils, the only problem is that I don’t own many stencils, I actually only have a few and most of them are OLD. So I decided to make my own stencils. On this card I used mostly retired products, I’ve been asked why I use retired products and…… that’s because that’s what I have. I am not on any company design teams so no freebies for me, and I believe in using what I have, and I can’t go out and buy everything I want (even though I wish I could) So maybe you won’t be able to copy this card completely but I do really hope you find some inspiration in this card in other ways.

Happy Birthday to you-C4C574

I’m running a little bit behind this weekend, 😞 but I do have a card for this weeks C4Cchallenges challenge, apparently today is Marching Band day, and we are to make a card with this theme. I don’t have anything marching band related in my stash so I thought I would go with bright colours and musical themed which reminds me of marching bands. This is what I came up with.

Blossoming Bouquet-C4C573

So apparently February 28th is floral design day sooooo, this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge is to make a card that features flowers. I had to make a card last week (it will post in the future as I matched it up with a different challenge) and I worked out how to add to the Parcel Pop Up so I could add a larger image and have it pop over the top edge of the card. I liked how it turned out so much that I decided to do it again with this card. I know it’s a bit early for Mother’s Day but I am ALWAYS so far behind I thought it would be good to actually get ahead of the game.

Boys and their Toys -C4C572

I am so excited to share this card, I love when I get asked to make a card and when I am first asked I am stumped, I love that I have to think about it and figure it out when I’m not sure how to start. Well this is one of those cards. I was asked to make a fun card for a 2 year old that loves big trucks, like dump trucks and loaders. The only thing is I don’t have ANYTHING in my craft room that has anything to do with trucks or loaders. I wasn’t even sure what mechanism to use to make it move. I also had to make a card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge which is a design challenge. It is a bit of a stretch but I think it works.

And here is my double truck card

Valentine Chocolates

When I saw Karen Burnistons Box of Chocolates card I knew I had to make one myself. I’ve been planning on making this card for I while, I actually purchased the supplies to make it for Valentines Day last year, but I had an unforeseen medical issue come up and I was very limited in what I was able to do. So this year I made 2, the second will be posted at the bottom of this post.

Happy Bbbirthday- C4C570

Here’s a card I quickly assembled for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge. February 5th is Weatherpersons Day so we had to make a card showing some type of weather. Funny thing is I really had no idea what I was going to, I wasn’t feeling particularly creative this week and as I walked down to my craft room I didn’t even have an idea of what I was going to do. I decided to flip through my embossing folders (which I don’t typically use) and I came across the one, I’ve actually never used it before but I thought it fit the theme just right.

Silver & Gold Sympathy set

Today I have a few Sympathy cards that I made back in October. Unfortunately I needed to make a set. Two of the cards went to very dear friends of mine, and one went to a family member, so they needed to be special. This is what I came up with.

Please check out my FACEBOOK page to see more cards, feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations. You can also see my card on my INSTAGRAM page.

Hello Love-C4C569

I’ve had a busy week so I decided to take an older card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge. This weeks challenge is to use the word “Love“ or to have a heart on our cards. I have used the word love 3 times and I have several hearts. Fun fact this is the first Interactive card I made using Karen Burniston dies, and as you can see by my blog it was only the beginning. Back then I wasn’t doing a blog post so I don’t have as many photos of the progress but I will do my best to explain. I am a firm believer in using what you have, you may not have exactly what I have or maybe can’t even get exactly what I have but that doesn’t mean you can’t use this card as a starting point to create something of your own. I am adding some suggestions for alternate options below.
