Pull Out Flower basket card

Hey everyone I actually have a mid week post the week, welllll sort of. I was going through my photos of cards I made last year and I found this one. The only problem is is that I either didn’t take photos or I already deleted them. But I have the details from another card that I made at the same time that I did post last year. Exact same measurements exact same technique just different colours. So I thought I would share this pretty pink and red one today and I am linking to the directions from the one from last year if you want to know all of the dies that I’ve used and the measurements and how I cut and assembled. Here is the LINK to last years card.

All the fun is in the reveal, to see this card in action please check out my FACEBOOK page, feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations. You can also see a video of this card on my INSTAGRAM page, or TikTok 😊

The cardstock is all from Stampin Up and the colours are either Real Red or Ridinghood Red, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Garden Green, Crumb Cake, and possibly Creamy Caramel.

The diesets used are the Woven Basket box card Pop up and the Flower Pot pop up die set, both from Karen Burniston.

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.
