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…..

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.

Love You Birthday Boy

I really like how my husbands birthday card turned this year. I made a similar card a few months back and I quite like the effect of the clear plastic card front so I thought I’d make another one. Both cards were originally inspired by a Valentine’s Day Card by Karen Burniston

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.

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

Blow Me Away

So today I have a belated Valentine card. A coworker asked me if I could make him a card to give to his Star Wars lovin girlfriend knowing that not only was I not able to have it made by Valentine’s Day, it would probably be at least a week late, but he wanted it anyway so I thought that I would try to make it as special as I could. I’d be lying if I said this card didn’t have a few challenges it was a little trickier than I thought It would be but I just kept on moving forward and before I knew it, it was done. I also have to give credit to Lois Gray Bak as after seeing her “Death Star” gave me to idea to make this “Death Star”

This card had 2 separate pop up mechanisms and it LIGHTS UP 🤯

To see this card and all it’s POP UP and LIGHT up glory please check out my Facebook page or my Instagram, please feel to join my Facebook group if you would like to share your own crafty creations.
