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.

Santa’s Little Helper

Today I have a Christmas card that I made using some more of Karen Burnistons NEW RELEASE. The main die set I used is the Fireplace Pop-up, and I also used the Fireplace Extras 1 (Christmas themed) and Fireplace Extras 2. There are so many pieces in these sets that the possibilities are endless as they can’t also mix and match with other prereleased sets. This is the card that I came up with.

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.

Pop’nSwap Santa

*Hello, hello… I’ve been under the weather for the last week and I feel like I’ve been slacking. My Karen Burniston challenges start in August and I’ve started on those, but those are under wraps until the scheduled dates, so I thought that I would share another Christmas in July card. I made this card for my sister and her family a couple of years ago. It was my first Pop n Swap so I hope you all like it.

The next photo is actually 2 photos that I lined up. I was in a hurry to get pictures and didn’t get a great one of the gifts swooping under the tree

….and you act like one 2

I am soooo exciting to share this card, I had so much fun making it. It all started with this photo, and the monkey. The monkey had to be blue and yellow and it was for my beautiful grand daughters 2nd birthday, and the rest of it just fell into place as I was making it. It’s funny how that happens some times. I just found the perfect patterned paper and I just happened to have perfectly matching cardstock (from 2 different companies). I bought the little mirrors a while ago and finally had a reason to use them, and posing Jinx the Monkey in all the funny poses actually made me laugh.

As you read the words on each page think of the “Happy Birthday” song. I don’t know if it’s just me but I remember this swap in lyrics from when I was a child

This is why the monkey had to be blue and yellow, it belong to my son when he was three , and now it’s a favourite stuffed friend for this little cutie.

Safari Babies Crib Card

*Hello, hello, and here we are at another weekend. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to make a card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge, life has been a bit hectic and I haven’t been in my Craftroom for over a week 😭, so for this week I am posting a card that I made last month. It was a special request and it was a bit of a challenge in itself, I needed to make a Safari Animal themed baby boy card 🤔 which doesn’t seem too complicated but the only “safari” animal I have is a monkey 🐒, soooooo Scan n Cut to the rescue again, and this is what I came up with.
