Retro games pop up- C4C575

This card was actually a double challenge for me LOL. This weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge was to create a card using 2 or more stencils, the only problem is that I don’t own many stencils, I actually only have a few and most of them are OLD. So I decided to make my own stencils. On this card I used mostly retired products, I’ve been asked why I use retired products and…… that’s because that’s what I have. I am not on any company design teams so no freebies for me, and I believe in using what I have, and I can’t go out and buy everything I want (even though I wish I could) So maybe you won’t be able to copy this card completely but I do really hope you find some inspiration in this card in other ways.

Over the Rainbow Birthday card

Every once in a while I get excited about how a card turned out, and I have to say I am pretty happy with this one. I made this card especially for my niece and I’m finally able to share it. At first I was stumped as to what to make her as I generally go a little over the top when making cards for her and her brother (His last card) But I was inspired by a Shaker Card that I made a few months ago and I wanted to change it up a bit make it bigger and better. And this is what I came up with.

White Wedding-C4C527

Ok, sorry I’ve been slow posting this week, I have a pretty big card in progress, it’s just taking a little longer than I thought to finish, but first I have this weeks Crazy4Challenges card to post. According to the Days of the year calendar, today is White Day, apparently in countries where Valentine’s Day is observed by women giving chocolates to those they love White day is the day they get the return on that investment, for our challenge this week we have to create a white on white card. I decided to make a Wedding card.

Spin Me Right Round 2.0

This is a card I made by request. I was ask to make a card similar to this card. Whenever I get a request to make a card based on an other card I always try to make it different or better. When I made the first card and it was finished I had regretted not making the buttons interactive in some way as well. So this card was my second chance.

This spinning card was inspired to by a couple of YouTube videos, I am linking them as this is not my original idea and I got inspiration from these but did not follow directly Video 1 Video 2

So Glad We’re Friends

I am disappointed to say that I was unable to create a card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge. I am still down to one arm and I haven’t been able to go down to my craft room and of my completed cards I didn’t have one that fit the challenge, so I am posting a birthday card that I made and had to wait for my friend to received it in the mail before I posted. So here is a card I made for one of my oldest and dearest friends, Kristeen and I have been friends for longer than I can remember, so this card had to be special. This is what I came up with.

All the fun is in the motion, to see a video of this card please check out my Facebook page or my Instagram. Feel free to join my Facebook page if you would like to share your own creations.

“the Blues” Sympathy Card

Sympathy cards are not my favourite to make, but I try to have a few in my box to have on hand when needed. To make this card I used the “Ghosting” technique (no pun intended). This technique gives a soft image (see the white flowers) and depending on the colours or effect you are looking for you can decide on whether you only want a subtle 2toned effect or if you want to add another colour (see darker blue flowers) to add more contrast.

Never Ending Love card 💞

So I was going through my previously made Valentine cards when I came across this gem, apparently, I shouldn’t post the new cards that I am currently making as they are all part of valentines gifts and I don’t want to ruin the surprise 😊 This card is what is called a “Neverending Card”, it is an origami style of card that as you open one layer it brings you to the next layer, when you open that layer in brings you to a third layer, when you open the third layer it brings you to a fourth layer, when you open the fourth layer it brings you to the first layer which starts the whole thing over and can be done continuously which is why it is called a Neverending Card, this one just happens to be a Valentines card 💝
