Mischievous Gnomes

This card cracks me up 😂, I was having so much fun I made 2. This started as a birthday card for my brother who has a long-standing dislike of garden gnomes, sooo of course I had to make him a card using multiple gnomes. I was also trying to find a creative way to use the Mail Box pop up die set, and then it came to me to have the mischievous garden gnomes stealing the birthday cards from the mailbox. I thought of different ways to style them so they wouldn’t all look the same. My husband reminded me that my brother is a grown man and not to make it too childish but I knew my bro would get a kick out of it. The second one I added flowers to and few more fun details, I had a little more time to play with it.

For the first card I made my brother I wanted the inside to be a surprise so I didn’t add any gnomes to the front, I just teased with the hat.

For the second card, I added a scene to the front, and I thought it would a good idea to have a place to write a message on the back. I didn’t think to add it to my brothers card until after I signed the inside and had mailed it.

There are a lot of moving parts on this card, 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.

The perfect gift….

This card is a bit late this week, it’s my hubby’s birthday card and I had to wait to post it until after I gave it to him. I had a lot of fun playing with the patterned paper for this card, I have a huge pile of different black and white patterns, and I will have to play with it more often. It’s hard to tell in some of the photons but I used 3 different shades of green as well

Label Challenge Card

Today is my first official challenge blog post as a Karen Burniston design team member, and I’m so excited to share this card 😊. The challenge this month was “Labels” and I was in a bit of a pickle. I own a LOT of KB dies but I don’t currently own any of the “Labels” dies. I placed an order but was concerned they wouldn’t get to me in time so I reached out to fellow design team member Karen Aicken who lives in the same province as I do and asked if she could die cut a few pieces for me, and not only did she send me what I asked for, she die cut pieces from 3 different Labels sets in black and white. Thank you Karen, without your help I wouldn’t have this lovely card.

Happy Birthday double Flower Collage

I recently received the Heart Collage Pop up dieset and was so excited to give it a try. But I wasn’t feeling an all heart card. I also recently received the Butterfly Collage add ons dieset. I knew I was going to try to do a double pop up and thought that there would be too many butterflies so I decided to mix in flowers. I used all the flowers from all the Karen Burniston diesets I currently have.
