Blossoming Bouquet-C4C573

So apparently February 28th is floral design day sooooo, this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge is to make a card that features flowers. I had to make a card last week (it will post in the future as I matched it up with a different challenge) and I worked out how to add to the Parcel Pop Up so I could add a larger image and have it pop over the top edge of the card. I liked how it turned out so much that I decided to do it again with this card. I know it’s a bit early for Mother’s Day but I am ALWAYS so far behind I thought it would be good to actually get ahead of the game.

Boys and their Toys -C4C572

I am so excited to share this card, I love when I get asked to make a card and when I am first asked I am stumped, I love that I have to think about it and figure it out when I’m not sure how to start. Well this is one of those cards. I was asked to make a fun card for a 2 year old that loves big trucks, like dump trucks and loaders. The only thing is I don’t have ANYTHING in my craft room that has anything to do with trucks or loaders. I wasn’t even sure what mechanism to use to make it move. I also had to make a card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge which is a design challenge. It is a bit of a stretch but I think it works.

And here is my double truck card

Circle Tagbook Slimline Valentine- C4C571

Happy Valentines Day, I’m so sorry that my Crazy4Challenges challenge card wasn’t posted on Friday, I’ve had a hectic week and I wasn’t able to get the post done. This is a card that I made by request and it just happened to fit the C4C challenge which was to make a interactive/fun fold Slimline card. This is what I came up with

Valentine Chocolates

When I saw Karen Burnistons Box of Chocolates card I knew I had to make one myself. I’ve been planning on making this card for I while, I actually purchased the supplies to make it for Valentines Day last year, but I had an unforeseen medical issue come up and I was very limited in what I was able to do. So this year I made 2, the second will be posted at the bottom of this post.

Happy Bbbirthday- C4C570

Here’s a card I quickly assembled for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge. February 5th is Weatherpersons Day so we had to make a card showing some type of weather. Funny thing is I really had no idea what I was going to, I wasn’t feeling particularly creative this week and as I walked down to my craft room I didn’t even have an idea of what I was going to do. I decided to flip through my embossing folders (which I don’t typically use) and I came across the one, I’ve actually never used it before but I thought it fit the theme just right.

Silver & Gold Sympathy set

Today I have a few Sympathy cards that I made back in October. Unfortunately I needed to make a set. Two of the cards went to very dear friends of mine, and one went to a family member, so they needed to be special. This is what I came up with.

Hello Love-C4C569

I’ve had a busy week so I decided to take an older card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge. This weeks challenge is to use the word “Love“ or to have a heart on our cards. I have used the word love 3 times and I have several hearts. Fun fact this is the first Interactive card I made using Karen Burniston dies, and as you can see by my blog it was only the beginning. Back then I wasn’t doing a blog post so I don’t have as many photos of the progress but I will do my best to explain. I am a firm believer in using what you have, you may not have exactly what I have or maybe can’t even get exactly what I have but that doesn’t mean you can’t use this card as a starting point to create something of your own. I am adding some suggestions for alternate options below.

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…..
