Wonderful Snow flurries C4C514

I finally got my Christmas cards done (yay me 50 of them) so I finally get to play with this fun Photo Collage Pop up die set (early Christmas present 🙂 I also had to make a card for this week’s Crazy4Challenges challenge. This week’s challenge was to use my favourite Christmas stamp set and or Christmas die set to create a Christmas card. Hhmmmm a favorite was so hard to pick. I have always loved snowflake stamps and over the last 13ish years I have accumulated a few so I picked out one that was a little larger than the rest and went with it, and I also thought snowflakes would work well on the pop-up mechanism, so this is the card 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 😊

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.

I’ll Always Be….Right There-anniversary-C4C506

So apologies for being M.I.A. this last week, what can I say, life happens and I wasn’t able to get anywhere near my craft room, and I didn’t even have time to find an old card to blog about, but here I am hoping to get back on track. I am also a few days late for the Crazy4Challenges challenge this week. I am going to add my card anyway as I have just finished making it. This weeks challenge was to incorporate music into the card. I needed to make an anniversary card so I decided to incorporate the Lyrics to the song “I’ll Always Be Right There” as this was the song that was played for the happy couples first dance.

Love You a Latte

sorry it’s been awhile, I haven’t had much chance to play in my my craft room, but I did tonight 🙂 and this is what I came up with. I have had this Coffee cup pop up die set since the spring, and I have used it a couple of times but never as it was originally intended, lol so I thought that I would give it a try. It turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself.

a Howarts Wedding card

I am so excited to be sharing this card, I never thought I would have the opportunity to make a Harry Potter wedding card, so when the opportunity came up I decided that this should be a very special card. It took a lot of planning, and a lot of tweaking, but I was determined to find a way to make this big castle fold into a card. It turned out much better than expected and I am pleased to share how I did it with you.

Red Ribbon Roses

I have a bit of an oldie today, I made this card a few years back for our local Fall Fair. I entered in one of the contest and won the first place ribbon. I have posted some 3d roses cards before but I did add a little bit more detail to this post. Some of the ideas for this card I learned when I was a Stampin Up demonstrator from Stampin Connection, the Roses were a big hit back in 2011 but I really have no idea who the original creator is, the same with the method on how to make the tag. I thought I would share as both elements are fun and easy and you may have the same or similar tools at home to create your own 3D Roses card.

Sand Castle-Beach at the Lake Style-C4C496

I have been anxiously waiting to make this post. I had this idea for making a big sandcastle out of the “Woven Basket” die set and the “Castle Pop up” for a while now and I had to wait for this week’s Crazy4Challenges challenge to post it because you guest it, this weeks challenge is to make a card incorporating a sand castle, apparently its “Sandcastle Day” so get out there and hit the beach or craft room and make a sandcastle everybody.

If your wondering what I mean by “lake beach”, I grew up in a town on the North shore of Lake Huron, and although all the “Ocean beach” cards with their crabs and palm trees are quite lovely , I’m more likely to see frogs and cattails near the beaches I’m used to, so this card is dedicated to my home town of Blind River. Miss you like crazy especially when it’s this hot out.
