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.

Double Heart Pivot Panel Valentine-C4C568

I’ve been trying to think how to make a Slim line pivot panel card, and this is what I came up with, along the way I figured out a few things, I had a happy accident that I didn’t even realize until I started decorating, and I also used a helpful hint. This card was also made for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge which is to create a card using Purple 💜 and or green 💚, I choose to use both and this is what I came up with.

Framed Flowers-C4C567

Hello, Hello, I’m here with the first Crazy4Challenges Sketch challenge of the new year. This card is also for one of my oldest and dearest friends and I’m kind of bummed as she hasn’t received it yet (I really don’t like posting a card until the recipient gets it but I chose to use this weeks challenge soooo I don’t have a choice 🙁) This is also the first time I got to use this die set, it was pretty easy so I am already rolling different ideas in my head on how to use it.

Here is this weeks sketch

And this is what I did with it…..

Valentine Shutter Card-C4C566

Hello, I am excited to share the first Crazy4Challenges challenge of the year 🤗 Since it is a New Year the challenge is to create something new to me, new tool, new technique, new style……. I decided to try a new technique. It’s a technique that I have been wanting to try for a while but have’t had the time, so last weekend I watched a few videos and gave it a go and I have to say I wish I would have tried it sooner. It’s pretty easy and it doesn’t require any special tools 😃 and it can be used for any occasion, what else can you ask for in a technique. So here is my Valentines Shutter card 💝 (I added a mini card to the back for a special message)

All the fun is in the reveal, it’s hard to tell in the photo but the central shutter opens and closes as you open and close the card.

Falalala Flurries- 5 different slimline cards,1 Stamp set, 1 set up PART 5

Aaaannnnd then there were 5. Here is my fifth and last card that I made using the same stamps set up the same way. The colours look close to the same as Card 2 but they are slightly different, on card 2 I only used one colour of ink on the panel which was Bermuda Bay, on this card I used Bermuda Bay, Pool Party and Coastal Cabana, it is hard to tell the subtle differences in the photo. I have to say this is my favourite card of the five. Here are the other cards, CARD 1, CARD 2, CARD 3 and CARD 4,

Here I am with card #4 of my multi post blog, and it’s also Crazy4Challenges challenge day. This weeks challenge was to choose a sketch from this last year and use it to create a card. I decided to take the opportunity to use one of my panels that didn’t turn out as well as I’d of liked so I cut it up to use for this challenge. The options are below, I chose the one I circled and turned it sideways.

And this is what I came up with……

Who Wants to Build A Snowman-C4C562

Isn’t it funny how one idea turns into another, then another and then poof you have something completely different that what you originally planned, that is exactly how this card started. This weeks challenge was to make a card with a snowman ⛄️ on it, and I originally planned on just using a snowman stamp, 🤔 then I was going to diecut a snowman, then I planned on having a card that had flaps and as you opened it, it would show a different part of the snow man and when 3 flaps were opened I would have a complete snowman….. and then I came up with this. It reminds me of a book I read as a child where you can move the flaps and the characters would change clothes.

Here is what I came up with, and these photos are all taken of the same card.

EDIT if you came here from Facebook but not my page, I was unable to post videos to all the other pages I generally post to (I just posted a picture). There is a video on my My Messy Craft room page. It’s a long clip so it made it to big and took too much time to share.

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.

Happy Birthday Bro LOL

Hahahaha this card makes me laugh, it is the birthday card that I made my little brother (in August 😊) who………. HATES garden gnomes 😂 Ever since he was a child he hated garden gnomes, so being the loving older sister I just had to make him this card for his birthday. My only regret was I had to mail it so I didn’t get to see his reaction 😂 This is my Second Garden Gnome, check HERE if you would like to see my first one.

Never More Than a Thought Away-C4C554

Sorry I’ve been MIA, but I’m here with a fun card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge blog. I did make this card back in July, my mom was quite ill and this is a card I made for her. I haven’t had the chance to post it yet, and it just happens to fit this weeks challenge which is ……… to create a slimline card. Slimline cards have become quite popular these days so Karen Burniston came up with an alternative design for her Circle Tagbook Pop up die set, and I couldn’t wait to give it a go. This is my version…..
