Basket Ball Pop-Up card

I pulled this card together pretty quick, my daughter needed a Birthday card for a friend who loves basketball and I was trying to think of how I could make a really neat basketball themed card and then it came to me, I could make a pop-up basketball net out of the Coffee Cup Pop-up and I did 🙂  I had to feel my way through making this card as the sizing was a bit off so I had to make some adjustments along the way, but all in all, I think it turned out pretty good.

Whomping Great day

Every once in a while I make a card that I get really excited about and I can’t wait to share but have to wait because I don’t want the recipient to see it before they get it. This is one of those cards. My niece and nephew are both Potter Heads and even though the card is for one of them I knew they would both be excited when they saw it. My challenge to myself was also was to make a Harry Potter Card different than the CARD I made last year and I think I succeeded 😀 🧙🏻‍♂️

Time Flies Accordion Card

Accordion cards make such an impact and are fun to open, they are also very easy to display as they stand up very nice. Here is an accordion card that I made a little while back, I hope you like it.

All the cardstock used to make this card is from Stampin Up. The colours used are Not Quite Navy, Buckaroo Blue, Basic Grey, and silver. The panels are cut out of the Basic Grey and the edges were sponged with Basic grey. The blue panels were sponged with Not quite Navy ink., All the clock pieces and gears were cut out of silver with the exception of the hands on the front clock.

To create this card I used Karen Burnistons “Gift Card Accordion” die set and followed these directions https://youtu.be/bzB7Auai1QU my card has 4 panels so you would just keep adding panels as needed. The clock and some of the gears are also an older Karen Burniston die set. The die on the second panel I lucked out and found at Thrift store.

I decorated the panels with the clocks, gears and a few rectangle dies. I printed the greeting “Time Flies” on the front and “when you’re getting old” on the inside.

SHHH dads belated Birthday card-C4C486

Crazy 4 Challenges day and the theme this week is to create a card using a wood element, it can be wood grain, wood paper, embossing folders or veneer shapes. I started off with the wood patterned paper and then I found some veneer shapes I TOTALLY forgot I had. I knew I wanted to do this chair for my Dads birthday card and I was able to picture it in my head with the cup of coffee and the crossword book (if you know my dad you know he likes nothing more than sitting outside in the fresh air with his coffee and crosswords) but it’s kind of funny how the whole card came to be, as it wasn’t exactly all planned out lol

I remember checking blogs, and website trying to find new creations to CASE and even coming up with some of my own.

Happy Humming Bird Birthday card

I am so happy with how this card turned out. The hummingbirds are super cute and I like that they are a surprise when you open the card. The one hummingbird on the right actually goes up and down when the card opens and closed.
