Surprise Birthday Bouquet

I have been trying to think of a way to use the triple flip die set in a different way, then I saw Karen Aickens version where she only used one large flipper as opposed to using all three smaller flippers. Also one of my oldest and dearest friends had a birthday coming up and I decided she needed a fancy bouquet of flowers for her birthday, so I decided to combine the two. The effect I was looking for with this card was to have the card look like it is one colour of a bouquet when closed, but have a different colour of bouquet when it is open, and I think I pulled it off

Pretty in Pink-C4C498-Sketch Challenge

Happy Weekend, and this week’s Crazy4Challenges challenge is a Sketch Challenge. I have a special friend with a birthday coming up so I made this one with her in mind. When creating cards sometimes I try to come up with little side challenges just for myself, and one of them more often than not is to find (and use) something that I’ve had for years and not used previously. So this week I got digging through some Scrapbook Kits that I’ve had for YEARS and pick one out that suited the theme I was looking for. The benefit of using kits is that all of the items in the kit will coordinate with each other so it makes it a little easier and sometimes quicker.

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.

Black & Bright Accordion Card

Accordion cards are so fun to make and make an impressive card to give. This one was a 16th Birthday card that I made my daughter. That’s her cute little baby photo on the inside.

Thinking of You-Daisy Card (the original)

So a few weeks ago I posted a daisies easel card, in that post I mention that I made a card that I couldn’t post because my friend hadn’t received it yet and I didn’t want to give away the surprise but I posted a different card that was inspired by the original card that a different friend of mine wanted for a friend of hers. Well this is the original card, lol that was not confusing at all 🙄
