Giant Pop up Dinosaur Birthday card

Is it still a birthday card if you have to mail it in box 🤔, this is by far the biggest birthday card I EVER made. I didn’t originally plan for it to be this big but one thing led to another and KaBang giant pop up dinosaur. My kids actually told me I was insane 🤦‍♀️ lol. This started off with my thinking about making a 2 ball dragon card. I had seems some pretty impressive dragons and was going to give it a go when I remembered that I had a dinosaur 🦖 skeleton stencil from YEARS ago and I thought hey why make a dragon when I can make a dinosaur and I hadn’t seen a Surprise Pop up Ball Dinosaur yet soooooo my mind was made up.

with this card all the fun is definitely 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.

Have a Happy Super Duper Crazy Amazing Birthday-C4C533

Hello, sorry it’s been a week again, I have been busy making cards, but they are cards I am unable to post yet, plus I am still working full time and it’s been hard to fit it all in. Hopefully soon I can get back to posting twice a week. Anyway I do have a card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge. This Saturday is “Free Comic book day” so this weeks challenge is to be inspired by a comic book. Hmm I don’t know much about comic books except that most Super Hero’s originally come from comic books sooooo that’s what I went with. I do know that my characters are from DC and Marvel and technically they wouldn’t be together but this is my card and all super hero’s are friend in my world lol. I also need to say that the characters are cased from a lady named Laura Robinson who shared them years ago, I originally made THIS card. (To see Laura’s characters scroll to the bottom)

Here is my card

Raining Rainbows C4C531

Hey all, this is week 2 of me hosting the Crazy4Challenges challenge blog. This is so much fun. You know what they say “April showers bring May flowers” so this weeks challenge is to have rain 🌧 or a rainbow 🌈 on your card. I decided to have a bit of both. Last fall I made a Magical Rain card I really liked how it turned out so I thought that I would make a different version. I thought it would be really neat as a rainbow, I also changed the size of the card and the angles and this is what I came up with.

This card looks so much better in action so to see it in action please check out my Facebook page or my Instagram account.

Hope things start looking UP! C4C528

Hello, let me start by saying that this card almost felt like it needed to be made, It was like as I started getting the idea it just almost made itself. Maybe it was because the movie had been playing at work for about a week, maybe because balloons make me happy and I feel the need to share a bit of happiness when there is so much sadness and worry going on in the world right now. I can’t even think of who I would send this to because I want to send it to everyone I know and even those I don’t. Hopefully this card puts a smile on someone else’s face🎈🏠😊

This card was also made for the Crazy4Challenges challenge. This weeks challenge was to make a gate fold card. That is a card that folds in from both sides and the opening is in the middle. I just turned mine sideways. Lol.

All the magic is in the motion, some of the balloons actually move up and down when the card opens and closes please check out my Facebook page or my Instagram to see the video. Feel free to join my Facebook group if you would like to share your creations.

The Gangs All Here

Ever since Karen Burniston came out with the fun Surprise Ball pop up there have been so many fun animal cards.

I thought he was lonely so I made him some friends 🐑🐓🐐🐖🐎

Spin Me Right Round 2.0

This is a card I made by request. I was ask to make a card similar to this card. Whenever I get a request to make a card based on an other card I always try to make it different or better. When I made the first card and it was finished I had regretted not making the buttons interactive in some way as well. So this card was my second chance.

This spinning card was inspired to by a couple of YouTube videos, I am linking them as this is not my original idea and I got inspiration from these but did not follow directly Video 1 Video 2
