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 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.

Happy Birthday Sis

This is my first card after the holidays, I tend to take a bit of time off the blog during the holidays as I do work retail and the holidays can be quite a busy time for me.

This is the card I made for my sister this past November. I really wanted to make her something special, as we don’t get to see each other very often. So I thought I would make her a card showing some of the things we’ve done together the last few times we’ve been together. The card includes Salted Caramel Martinis, Blueberry tea, Wine, (are you seeing a theme here 🍸☕️🥂, hanging at the beach and ….. she loves plants 🌱 and gives me cuttings that I generally kill ☠️. I also made sure to use a pretty colour combo and some bling.

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)

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…..

PAC-MAN scrap book page-C4C550 😀👻👻👻

Sooooo I’m cheating a bit this week. I started a post that I’m not done yet, and I really wanted to add a card to this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge so I had to dig out an older project and pull together a quick post. This weeks challenge was “to go Retro” and we were to interpret “retro” anyway we wanted. What’s more retro than Pac-Man? I remembered that I made a special scrap book for my nephew (it’s a photo/year growth chart scrapbook) and I made a Pac-Man page to add his 9th birthday photo to and I thought it would fit the theme. The size is 6”x6” so this would also make a good card.

Hello, so sorry I’m about a day late for this weeks Crazy4Challenges blog post, the card I made for this challenge is actually the card I made for my daughter, who’s birthday is today, and I only just gave her the card, so I didn’t want her to see her card online before I gave it to her. So to my lovely daughter, Happy Birthday sweetheart I hope you have a wonderful day 💕

On to this weeks challenge, apparently May is photo month, so the challenge is to include something photo related, I decided to add some photos of my baby as a baby.
