Sympathy Rose- C4C581

So April is winding down and it is my last week of hosting the Crazy4Challenges blog. This week I decided to do an inspiration challenge, I choose a piece of artwork from work because I always thought is was pretty, if you zoom in you will see that there are other colours that aren’t noticed right away, and gasp….. this isn’t a pop up card 😱

I had a hard time getting the effect that I was aiming for, after several attempts I gave up and tried something new, and this is what I came up with.

Birthday Pivot Twist slimline card-C4C576

Hello, hello, I felt like trying something I haven’t done yet when making this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge card. This weeks challenge is a sketch challenge, which means I follow the sketch for the front, but I can do whatever I want on the inside. I decided to do a fun pop up mechanism, using multiple die sets.

Here is the sketch

And this is what I came up with

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.

Monochromatic Swirly Shaker Slimline Mobile Card

This is a card that I made a very dear friend of mine, she is also my coworker so she often gets to see my cards before they are mailed out to their recipients and I have to say she is always full of such wonderful compliments I had to make her something special. I really liked how my Snowflake Mobile card turned out so I decided to try it with balloons. I also wanted to try to use the Karen Burniston Swirls Pattern Plate on a slimline card, and I got some realllly pretty glitter for Christmas that I couldn’t wait to use, and Voila I have a Monochromatic Swirly Shaker Slimeline Mobile 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,

Snowflake Soirée- 5 different slimline cards 1 stamp set, 1 set up PART 2

Ok, I’ve got card #2 today. If you read PART 1 you would know that I started this by making 5 panels from the same stamp set, set up the same way. Some I did on Water Colour paper and some I did on Vellum cardstock. The card I’m showing today is one that I made from the vellum. I really like how this technique turned out. The photo doesn’t do it justice.

Blue Christmas C4C564- 5 different slimline cards 1 stamp set, 1 set up- PART 1

Hello, hello, hello, this is the first time I’ve done a multi part blog post but this is the only way I can continue posting semi regularly but still keep this idea that I had (as all 5 cards aren’t done yet 😜) work out. This idea started with this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge which was to create a Christmas card with Blue in it, think Elvis’s “Blue Christmas” and I wanted to stamp and emboss Silver snowflakes. So I dug out my Stamping platform and was setting up and thought since it’s on the platform I might as well do more than one. So I did a few on watercolour paper and I did a few on vellum card stock and just knew I wanted to do them all different so an idea was born LOL. I’ve read a few comments from crafters this last few weeks about struggling to find different ideas on making different Christmas cards. Well this way you can use some of the same supplies but still come out with five different cards. (I will edit this post once I have all 5 cards posted so they are easier to find. I’m not sure if each card will gets it’s own post but will figure it out as I go)

Gold Christmas Slimline Card

This is a card I made for Christmas many years ago (before slimline cards were as popular as they are now), I made about 40 of them and sent them to family and friends, I found this one in a box of old cards so I thought I would share. I made it well before I started blogging so I don’t have photos of the process but I am describing it as best as I can.
