Flying Dragon Castle Card

Soooo I know I’ve posted quite a few castle cards, but this one was a special request that I just couldn’t say no to. So as to not be too repetitive I tried something a little different. I tried my hand at creating a castle using the Sundae Pop up die set as the mechanism. there is a video that Karen made as a tutorial which I followed but changed a little. Karen made a sandcastle card and I made a Hogwarts castle with a dragon that moves a little when the card opens and closes.

Easy Breezy Christmas cards

So today I have a couple of cute Christmas cards. I had the really adorable patterned paper out from a previous project asd I wasn’t quite ready to put it away. These cards I made to show that you can just go with it, There was really very little measuring as I was cutting out sections of the patterned paper that I liked and then just cutting out a mat roughly 1/4′ bigger. I also challenged myself to stick to 4 colours of cardstock to work with, I did cheat a little on that one as I also used Vanilla cardstock on the inside of 2 of them.

Hogwarts Bridge Card

sooo if you have been following my blog you may have noticed that I have quite a few Harry Potter cards, apparently I know a lot of people who enjoy Harry Potter LOL, I do try very hard to make my cards different or to try different techniques to make each one special. My niece is a huge Harry Potter fan so I really wanted to make a special card just for her so I decided to make a bridge card.

Thinking of you K.I.S.S. card

it’s been a bit since I’ve posted a K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid) card. To my new followers I use the turn as a reminder to myself that not every card I make has to be a 6 hour multi layer super pop-up card, it’s ok to take a step back and make something in a half an hour and call it good. The patterned paper that I used for this card is some of my favourite, I just love the colour combo so it was easy for me to pull this one together.

Sunflower Wreath-C4C508

Welcome to the weekend, and with the weekend comes another Crazy4Challenges challenge. This week’s Challenge is to have a wreath on the card, any style or theme. I’m not quite feeling the Christmas cards quite yet and I have a birthday card I need for someone in the near future so I thought I would make a Birthday card with a wreath. I also that I would make it into an easel card because they just sit up so pretty. This is a wider version of an easel card compared to cards I have done in the past.

Spin me right round

hello, so I thought I would try something new today. This is an interactive card that does not using any special dies. There were a few cards that were posted a few weeks ago using this techniques so I thought I would try my hand at it, so I checked out a few videos on YouTube (I’ll post below). I was having difficulty though, I actually had to start this mechanism over 3 times, not sure why as I usually can figure these things out pretty well. The problem I had was I couldn’t get the parts to spin without separating from each other, or they just wouldn’t spin, so I decided to add a brad to centre and that seemed to remedy it for me.
