Triple Flip Ornament

While cleaning my craft room 😳 I came across this adorable patterned paper pack that I had forgotten about (who me 😊) and knew I needed to use it, and I thought that the large ornaments would work great on a Triple Flip card, soooo this is what I came up with.

Spin me right round

hello, so I thought I would try something new today. This is an interactive card that does not using any special dies. There were a few cards that were posted a few weeks ago using this techniques so I thought I would try my hand at it, so I checked out a few videos on YouTube (I’ll post below). I was having difficulty though, I actually had to start this mechanism over 3 times, not sure why as I usually can figure these things out pretty well. The problem I had was I couldn’t get the parts to spin without separating from each other, or they just wouldn’t spin, so I decided to add a brad to centre and that seemed to remedy it for me.

Bugs and Kisses Birthday Card

soo today was one of those days where I had a plan, a goal and the idea in which I planned on doing it, it’s a card that I promised would be done before Friday annnnnd it didn’t get done. It wasn’t for lack of trying, I just couldn’t get the mechanism to do what it was supposed to do and I was getting frustrated so I decided to put it down. I found this pretty striped paper from my crazy stash and created this card, which is pretty much the exact opposite of the card that I had originally started. Anyway I got something done today, maybe it wasn’t what I had planned but it’s cute and it’s complete. 😊

Surprise Birthday Bouquet

I have been trying to think of a way to use the triple flip die set in a different way, then I saw Karen Aickens version where she only used one large flipper as opposed to using all three smaller flippers. Also one of my oldest and dearest friends had a birthday coming up and I decided she needed a fancy bouquet of flowers for her birthday, so I decided to combine the two. The effect I was looking for with this card was to have the card look like it is one colour of a bouquet when closed, but have a different colour of bouquet when it is open, and I think I pulled it off

You are my Sunshine

I was looking forward to making one of these cards when I first saw the YouTube Magical Rain Shaker Card Video by Laura Dovalo. I thought this was such a fun idea, but I had no idea who I was going to make it for, well I showed a friend of mine and she REALLY wanted me to make one for her to give to someone who brightens her days, soooo that was they only thing I needed, and away I went. The hardest part about making the card was beading on the really thin line that I had, as the beads were too small for needle to go through and my eyes had a hard time seeing the itty bitty holes in the beads, but I got it done.

Celebrate Your Way

I’ve got a fun Birthday card today, and it is the first time that I used my Triple Flip die sest. This card is for someone who doesn’t like a lot of fuss for his Birthday so I made the front flaps look like a traditional Birthday card with cake, a gift, and balloons, but when the flaps are flipped they reveal the way he would rather take in the day which would be hanging out with his dog, enjoying a cold beer, watching Ghost Hunters lol

I Scream, You Scream, We all Scream for Ice Cream.

Who doesn’t love ice cream, I just received this die set and I was pretty excited to use it, because like I said who doesn’t love ice cream. My colour pallet revolved around this fun striped paper which just happened to be slightly sticking out of my crazy paper bin, it must love ice cream too.
