I recently received the Heart Collage Pop up dieset and was so excited to give it a try. But I wasn’t feeling an all heart card. I also recently received the Butterfly Collage add ons dieset. I knew I was going to try to do a double pop up and thought that there would be too many butterflies so I decided to mix in flowers. I used all the flowers from all the Karen Burniston diesets I currently have.

Welcome to the weekend, and with the weekend comes another Crazy4Challenges challenge. This week’s Challenge is to have a wreath on the card, any style or theme. I’m not quite feeling the Christmas cards quite yet and I have a birthday card I need for someone in the near future so I thought I would make a Birthday card with a wreath. I also that I would make it into an easel card because they just sit up so pretty. This is a wider version of an easel card compared to cards I have done in the past.
This is week two of my Crazy 4 Challenges challenge. I was originally asked to be a guest designer for the month of May, but I have recently been asked to join their design team permanently 🙂 I am really looking forward to being part of this very creative group of women, and the challenge posts will be posted every Saturday.
This weeks challenge was to make a Mother’s Day card with Flowers. I was thinking back to flower cards that I have made in the past and I came across a style that was popular a few years back where the flowers pull out from the flower pot, revealing the greeting (Pic at bottom of post). They were fairly easy to make but if your measurements were slightly off then the flower pot would be crooked, I thought that I would try using the Woven Basket Pop up die set from Karen Burniston and I am happy to say it turned out better than expected.
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.
My daughter and her friends asked if I could make a get well soon for their principal who is currently on medical leave. I felt that it was very thoughtful of them, so I went down to my craft room and came up with this.
