Triple Flip Ornament- take 2

In Early November I made a Triple Flip Ornament card , I thought it turned out pretty neat so I thought I would try it again. The first card was a 5 1/2″ square card and I made it in a green. This time I created a 7 1/4″ x 4 3/4″ rectangle and I made it in a red, and I used a different patterned paper. I hope you like 🙂

Chewbacca Christmas ornament

so I have a Mix it up Monday today, instead of a card I have a Christmas ornament, Over the years it has been a tradition at my house to give a Christmas ornament to my kids for Christmas each year. Each ornament was usually something fun that reflected something that they enjoyed. So my Christmas tree is covered in Disney Princesses, Star Wars characters, at least one Super Hero and many other different ornaments. Sometimes it wasn’t always easy to find that perfect ornament so there were years that I created my own. This ornament was one of them.

Parcel Pop up Magic Card

I just love magic cards, they are so fun and they have such a fun surprise when you open the card, so when I saw the version of a Magic Card using the Parcel Pop up mechanism I knew I just had to give it a try. The size shape and mechanism for this card are all from Karen’s video tutorial (link will be below) I thought the ornaments would be a fun image to use so I chose my stamps and paper colours and away I went.

The magic is in the motion so to see a video of this card in motion please check out my Facebook page, also feel free to join if you would like to share your own creations.

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.

Christmas Wishes

soooo, I’m still working on my Christmas cards for this year (talking a little longer but they are pretty crazy this year)so I grabbed another card form my box. I made this one a couple of years ago. It’s pretty elegant in perso, the photo doesn’t do it justice, and one of my easier cards so it would be easy to C.A.S.E. it’s hard t see in the photo but the embossed section has glitter in it so it has a little extra pizzazz.

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 😊
