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.

…but who’s counting

So my craft room has been packed up for A YEAR!!, with me sneaking a few things out from time to time. Now that I am trying to get my blog back on track, I’ve already had a special request, and I just had to go for it. A lady doesn’t turn 70 everyday, and my crazy craft brain went a little over the top for this one. I lost track of how many hours of die cutting and assembling (I need to find my alphabet stamps lol) but I had a vision and here it is….

And here it is in action 🤩

I’m trying something a little different with this post, I’ve numbered the photos to match the directions that are just below each photo

Happy 22nd Birthday

So my son just turned 22 and I knew I wouldn’t be able to see him on his birthday so I knew I had to make him something extra special. He has been a Star Wars fan since before he can even remember, but I remember. I remember all the light sabres we had around the house (one of every colour), the voice changing masks and all the Lego space ships, there was so much lego. And the movies, on repeat, first on VHS, then on DVD, and finally on Blu Ray. At first I was a little stumped on what I was going to do for a card until he sent me a photo of his baby daughter wearing a Yoda hat 💖 💚 , and then I knew it had to be Star Wars. This is what I came up with.

Over the Rainbow Birthday card

Every once in a while I get excited about how a card turned out, and I have to say I am pretty happy with this one. I made this card especially for my niece and I’m finally able to share it. At first I was stumped as to what to make her as I generally go a little over the top when making cards for her and her brother (His last card) But I was inspired by a Shaker Card that I made a few months ago and I wanted to change it up a bit make it bigger and better. And this is what I came up with.

Bright Puzzle Swing Card-C4C529

Hello, hello, hello and welcome to APRIL yay, I am this months hostess for the Crazy4Challenges blog and I am so excited. April is my favourite month, 🤔 it’s my birthday month, it’s got April Fools day 😜, it should be the beginning of spring (in Canada not always ☹️) and it is also Autism Awareness month. Autism Awareness is a cause that is very close to my heart so I chose the logo as this weeks challenge. The designers were to use the logo anyway they wanted, they could have used it for a colour challenge, a design challenge, or any way that the image spoke to them. Here is the logo

And here is my card
