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.

Slimline Label Charm Accordion card

When I first receive my Label Charm Pop-up dieset, the wheels in my brain started turning trying to plan a longer accordion version. I did make a different version (I’ll post a photo at the bottom of this post) but I changed it sooo many times when making it that my photos would make the tutorial too confusing. I came up with this version when I was trying to make an extra special card for my niece.

Mischievous Gnomes

This card cracks me up 😂, I was having so much fun I made 2. This started as a birthday card for my brother who has a long-standing dislike of garden gnomes, sooo of course I had to make him a card using multiple gnomes. I was also trying to find a creative way to use the Mail Box pop up die set, and then it came to me to have the mischievous garden gnomes stealing the birthday cards from the mailbox. I thought of different ways to style them so they wouldn’t all look the same. My husband reminded me that my brother is a grown man and not to make it too childish but I knew my bro would get a kick out of it. The second one I added flowers to and few more fun details, I had a little more time to play with it.

For the first card I made my brother I wanted the inside to be a surprise so I didn’t add any gnomes to the front, I just teased with the hat.

For the second card, I added a scene to the front, and I thought it would a good idea to have a place to write a message on the back. I didn’t think to add it to my brothers card until after I signed the inside and had mailed it.

There are a lot of moving parts on this card, to see this card in action please check out my FACEBOOK page, feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations. You can also see a video of this card on my INSTAGRAM page.

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
