Balloon Birthday Bouquet

Sorry I’ve been MIA, I have had a crazy month. But I am pretty excited to share this card. When I originally saw this card from Sandy Diller I knew I just had to give it a go. Sandy made it as a mini slimline card but I wanted to go bigger. If you check out Sandy’s card she has a great video and she explains how to alter the mechanism used so it would fit in a mini slimline. I didn’t have to alter the shape like she did because I made my card 6” x 6”. Both cards have a great balloon surprise when you open the card.

Triple Spin card- Halloween Haunted Mansion

This was almost the card I was going to post for last weeks designer challenge as the theme was Halloweenor or Fall but I decided that Inwanted to be different than the rest and go with fall. Back in July Karen Burniston made a card using the Spinner Square dieset, where she used it THREE TIMES on one card, to make a “Triple Square Spinner Card”. I absolutely love when she teaches new ways to use dies that I already have. But anyone who knows me knows that I challenge myself to find a way to put my own spin (yes the pun was intended) on it, so instead of squares I decided to make a giant Haunted Mansion. This is what I came up with.

With this technique not only does the haunted mansion pop up but the bats, and the “boo” swing from left to right, and the ghost swings from right to left.

Sew Glad We’re Friends

It’s Sew much fun playing with new die sets, and the new Sewing Charms are super cute. I decided to use this set on a pink monochromatic Circle Tag book card. I thought it would be cute to have the thread from the spool on the front wind all the way through from the front to the back.

The perfect gift….

This card is a bit late this week, it’s my hubby’s birthday card and I had to wait to post it until after I gave it to him. I had a lot of fun playing with the patterned paper for this card, I have a huge pile of different black and white patterns, and I will have to play with it more often. It’s hard to tell in some of the photons but I used 3 different shades of green as well

….and you act like one 2

I am soooo exciting to share this card, I had so much fun making it. It all started with this photo, and the monkey. The monkey had to be blue and yellow and it was for my beautiful grand daughters 2nd birthday, and the rest of it just fell into place as I was making it. It’s funny how that happens some times. I just found the perfect patterned paper and I just happened to have perfectly matching cardstock (from 2 different companies). I bought the little mirrors a while ago and finally had a reason to use them, and posing Jinx the Monkey in all the funny poses actually made me laugh.

As you read the words on each page think of the “Happy Birthday” song. I don’t know if it’s just me but I remember this swap in lyrics from when I was a child

This is why the monkey had to be blue and yellow, it belong to my son when he was three , and now it’s a favourite stuffed friend for this little cutie.
