Flying Dragon Castle Card

Soooo I know I’ve posted quite a few castle cards, but this one was a special request that I just couldn’t say no to. So as to not be too repetitive I tried something a little different. I tried my hand at creating a castle using the Sundae Pop up die set as the mechanism. there is a video that Karen made as a tutorial which I followed but changed a little. Karen made a sandcastle card and I made a Hogwarts castle with a dragon that moves a little when the card opens and closes.

Hogwarts Bridge Card

sooo if you have been following my blog you may have noticed that I have quite a few Harry Potter cards, apparently I know a lot of people who enjoy Harry Potter LOL, I do try very hard to make my cards different or to try different techniques to make each one special. My niece is a huge Harry Potter fan so I really wanted to make a special card just for her so I decided to make a bridge card.

a Howarts Wedding card

I am so excited to be sharing this card, I never thought I would have the opportunity to make a Harry Potter wedding card, so when the opportunity came up I decided that this should be a very special card. It took a lot of planning, and a lot of tweaking, but I was determined to find a way to make this big castle fold into a card. It turned out much better than expected and I am pleased to share how I did it with you.

Whomping Willow 2.0-C4C-497

Hello, a little late today but here I am. Apparently yesterday was Book Lovers Day so this weeks Crazy For Challenges challenge is to get inspiration from a book. I cheated a little this week, if you are following me you may remember that I posted Whomping Good Day card back in June. When I posted that card I had a special request to make another so my challenge to myself was to make this card different than the last one. In many ways it is similar but there are still a few ways in which it is different.

Sand Castle-Beach at the Lake Style-C4C496

I have been anxiously waiting to make this post. I had this idea for making a big sandcastle out of the “Woven Basket” die set and the “Castle Pop up” for a while now and I had to wait for this week’s Crazy4Challenges challenge to post it because you guest it, this weeks challenge is to make a card incorporating a sand castle, apparently its “Sandcastle Day” so get out there and hit the beach or craft room and make a sandcastle everybody.

If your wondering what I mean by “lake beach”, I grew up in a town on the North shore of Lake Huron, and although all the “Ocean beach” cards with their crabs and palm trees are quite lovely , I’m more likely to see frogs and cattails near the beaches I’m used to, so this card is dedicated to my home town of Blind River. Miss you like crazy especially when it’s this hot out.

Rapunzel, Rapunzel let down your hair…..

I am sooooooo excited about this card, it was requested by a friend for her niece who loves Rapunzel and pop-up storybooks and her Birthday Party colours will be pink and sparkles (Sparkles is a colour right?) so this card idea pretty much planned itself. It was a lot of work and there is a lot of detail so hopefully, I don’t miss anything in my directions.
