Valentine Shutter Card-C4C566

Hello, I am excited to share the first Crazy4Challenges challenge of the year 🤗 Since it is a New Year the challenge is to create something new to me, new tool, new technique, new style……. I decided to try a new technique. It’s a technique that I have been wanting to try for a while but have’t had the time, so last weekend I watched a few videos and gave it a go and I have to say I wish I would have tried it sooner. It’s pretty easy and it doesn’t require any special tools 😃 and it can be used for any occasion, what else can you ask for in a technique. So here is my Valentines Shutter card 💝 (I added a mini card to the back for a special message)

All the fun is in the reveal, it’s hard to tell in the photo but the central shutter opens and closes as you open and close the card.

Happy Birthday Sis

This is my first card after the holidays, I tend to take a bit of time off the blog during the holidays as I do work retail and the holidays can be quite a busy time for me.

This is the card I made for my sister this past November. I really wanted to make her something special, as we don’t get to see each other very often. So I thought I would make her a card showing some of the things we’ve done together the last few times we’ve been together. The card includes Salted Caramel Martinis, Blueberry tea, Wine, (are you seeing a theme here 🍸☕️🥂, hanging at the beach and ….. she loves plants 🌱 and gives me cuttings that I generally kill ☠️. I also made sure to use a pretty colour combo and some bling.

Easy Glitter Embossed Christmas Cards

Here are some cards that I made last year, I was in a pinch and wanted to make a few quick cards. I had made a SIMILAR CARD card a few years earlier so I went with the same design. The previous card was shades of blue and I had used the pine boughs, so I thought I would use a few traditional colours (and blue) and some different stamp sets and I quickly whipped up these cards.

I post all my cards on my FACEBOOK page, feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations. You can also see my cards on my INSTAGRAM page.

Hint of Pink Christmas Shaker card

I’ve got an easier one today, apparently I’m having a hard time making traditional Christmas cards this year. I was just going to use the silver shaker bits but I thought it needed a bit of something and since the Champagne foil cardstock has a hint of pink I thought I would add pink glitter.

Falalala Flurries- 5 different slimline cards,1 Stamp set, 1 set up PART 5

Aaaannnnd then there were 5. Here is my fifth and last card that I made using the same stamps set up the same way. The colours look close to the same as Card 2 but they are slightly different, on card 2 I only used one colour of ink on the panel which was Bermuda Bay, on this card I used Bermuda Bay, Pool Party and Coastal Cabana, it is hard to tell the subtle differences in the photo. I have to say this is my favourite card of the five. Here are the other cards, CARD 1, CARD 2, CARD 3 and CARD 4,

Snowflakes and Joy-C4C565- 5 different slimline cards, 1 Stamp set, 1 set up PART 4

Here I am with card #4 of my multi post blog, and it’s also Crazy4Challenges challenge day. This weeks challenge was to choose a sketch from this last year and use it to create a card. I decided to take the opportunity to use one of my panels that didn’t turn out as well as I’d of liked so I cut it up to use for this challenge. The options are below, I chose the one I circled and turned it sideways.

And this is what I came up with……

Snowflake Soirée- 5 different slimline cards 1 stamp set, 1 set up PART 2

Ok, I’ve got card #2 today. If you read PART 1 you would know that I started this by making 5 panels from the same stamp set, set up the same way. Some I did on Water Colour paper and some I did on Vellum cardstock. The card I’m showing today is one that I made from the vellum. I really like how this technique turned out. The photo doesn’t do it justice.

Blue Christmas C4C564- 5 different slimline cards 1 stamp set, 1 set up- PART 1

Hello, hello, hello, this is the first time I’ve done a multi part blog post but this is the only way I can continue posting semi regularly but still keep this idea that I had (as all 5 cards aren’t done yet 😜) work out. This idea started with this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge which was to create a Christmas card with Blue in it, think Elvis’s “Blue Christmas” and I wanted to stamp and emboss Silver snowflakes. So I dug out my Stamping platform and was setting up and thought since it’s on the platform I might as well do more than one. So I did a few on watercolour paper and I did a few on vellum card stock and just knew I wanted to do them all different so an idea was born LOL. I’ve read a few comments from crafters this last few weeks about struggling to find different ideas on making different Christmas cards. Well this way you can use some of the same supplies but still come out with five different cards. (I will edit this post once I have all 5 cards posted so they are easier to find. I’m not sure if each card will gets it’s own post but will figure it out as I go)

Who Wants to Build A Snowman-C4C562

Isn’t it funny how one idea turns into another, then another and then poof you have something completely different that what you originally planned, that is exactly how this card started. This weeks challenge was to make a card with a snowman ⛄️ on it, and I originally planned on just using a snowman stamp, 🤔 then I was going to diecut a snowman, then I planned on having a card that had flaps and as you opened it, it would show a different part of the snow man and when 3 flaps were opened I would have a complete snowman….. and then I came up with this. It reminds me of a book I read as a child where you can move the flaps and the characters would change clothes.

Here is what I came up with, and these photos are all taken of the same card.

EDIT if you came here from Facebook but not my page, I was unable to post videos to all the other pages I generally post to (I just posted a picture). There is a video on my My Messy Craft room page. It’s a long clip so it made it to big and took too much time to share.
