Boo to You! C4C507

Trying really hard to get back on track, well at least this week’s Crazy4Challenges challenge is done on time 🙂 it’s the third weekend of the month and that means it is a sketch challenge. I don’t typically make Halloween cards but I thought that I would give it a go. I can’t take much credit for the card as the front is a design challenge and the inside is a close re-creation of a Karen Burniston card.

FYI I💙U-C4C-503

Welcome to the weekend and another Crazy4Challenges challenge. This weeks challenge is a Sketch challenge. I was a little short for time this week as I have been preparing for a really special card that I will posting soon (Monday I hope) so I thought this would be a fun card to make using a Scrapbooking kit. The benefit to using a Scrapbooking kit is that all the cardstock, paper and stickers will coordinate so if you are short on time this is a quick way to pull a card together. I also thought this kit would make a good masculine card to have on hand as I generally have an easier time making more fancy feminin cards that I am generally short of masculine cards. I think this one hit the mark.

Here is this weeks Sketch

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

World Travelling Wedding Wishes

I made this card a few weeks ago as a request for a friend. She needed a wedding card for her brother and his soon to be wife with a traveling theme. I had to ponder this one for a bit as I wasn’t quite sure what to do and how to make this a personalized card. Then I happened to look across my craft room at a book shelf and there it was, an Atlas that had sat on a shelf, unused for at least 20 years, I’m not even sure how hold it even is, my hubby is guessing 30ish. I thought long and hard before I started ripping pages out as I love books, I have always taken care of my books and part of my brain had a hard time committing to taking this one apart. I texted my friend and told her what I was considering and asked if there was any special places that she had in mind, well she passed on where they were, living, where they got engaged, places they have been and places they were planning on going so I made the decision and this is what I came up with.

Lets Hang out

Who doesn’t love monkeys, and these cheeky monkeys make a really cute card. When I made the Pushing Up Daisies card, I thought the mechanism was so fun that I had to do another, but I wanted to do something other than flowers sooooo I thought a swinging monkey would be adorable. Again I have to give credit to Laura Dovalo as if it were not for her Video this card wouldn’t have came to be, and this card makes me happy.

Pushing up Daisies (in a good way)

Quick side note-Wordpress has changed some of their editing and formatting, and I’m still trying to figure it out, I can’t edit my links so there may not be as many of them. Also apologies over the overall look, there are spaces where there shouldn’t be and alignment is way off , not lovin the update, I had A LOT of difficulties tonight. Anyway, on with the show ….

This card was as fun to make as it was frustrating, if you read through you will see how even if you make mistakes along the way (and I made a few with this one) it is still possible to have a really great card in the end, just fix your mistake and move on to the next step. This card wouldn’t have been possible without this amazing video tutorial https://youtu.be/lvbe8unPQZE from Laura Dovalo https://www.youtube.com/user/ladovalo/videos. I recommend watching her video if you plan on making this card as it is a little tricky, but great interactive card at the end.
