Pull out Flower Pot Mothers Day Card. C4C483

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.

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.

“Pink Black-Eyed Susan” 🌺 Birthday card

Well, I have another fun technique today, Believe it or not, the stamp used for this card is a silhouette stamp, not a lined detail stamp. It was pretty easy to add the colour and a little bit of detail to make these flowers look like they were hand painted as opposed to stamped. This is a technique that I learned quite a few years ago when I used to be a Stampin’ UP demonstrator. It gives a much different look to stamps you may already have in your stash.

I ❤️ U

Valentines is only a few days away so I thought I would post another Valentine from my card box. I wish I could take full credit for this card but I got the original idea from a card challenge I was a part of back in 2010 😳. It was called a Featured Stamper challenge from Stampin Connection, and the challenge was to look through the featured stampers posts, find something to use as an inspiration and share what we came up with. Lisa Young was the featured artist and I really liked how she cut the petals of the flower to make a heart she said she got the flower idea from a craft magazine. The colours and embossing were how I changed it up to make it my own.

Pop up Flowers Birthday Card

Sooooo I have been not so patiently waiting to post this card as I was waiting for my friend to receive it in the mail, It would probably help if I mailed it in time 🙄 but I got the go ahead so here goes…….

This is my first attempt at a Flower Pot Pop up Card and I think it turned out pretty good if I do say so myself, I think the next time I will probably try to centre it a little better, I was concerned If I had it too high in the card the flowers were going to come out of the top of the card, it turned out that I had a little more room than I thought 🙂
