Surprise Ball Christmas Card- C4C515

So this is the last Crazy4Challenges challenge of the year, our challenge this week was to choose a design from one of the previous design challenges, and I decided to use my Surprise Ball pop up to make it a little more interesting.

I chose do to the C4C484 design, I decided to make the largest circle into a window and make it a pop up card.

Parcel Pop up Magic Card

I just love magic cards, they are so fun and they have such a fun surprise when you open the card, so when I saw the version of a Magic Card using the Parcel Pop up mechanism I knew I just had to give it a try. The size shape and mechanism for this card are all from Karen’s video tutorial (link will be below) I thought the ornaments would be a fun image to use so I chose my stamps and paper colours and away I went.

The magic is in the motion so to see a video of this card in motion please check out my Facebook page, also feel free to join if you would like to share your own creations.

Triple Flip Upsy Daisy Balloon card

I have a really special card today, this is a card that I made for my sister. Now, my sister has been receiving cards from me for years now, and it’s hard to come up with unique cards especially when your sending it to someone who means so much to you. Last year I sent her a pretty over the top card (see it HERE) so the presser was on to come up with something really special, but I tried. and this is what I came up with…….

its a card that is fabulous on the outside…

and fabulous on the inside, just like my sis, Love you Sis

Wonderful Snow flurries C4C514

I finally got my Christmas cards done (yay me 50 of them) so I finally get to play with this fun Photo Collage Pop up die set (early Christmas present 🙂 I also had to make a card for this week’s Crazy4Challenges challenge. This week’s challenge was to use my favourite Christmas stamp set and or Christmas die set to create a Christmas card. Hhmmmm a favorite was so hard to pick. I have always loved snowflake stamps and over the last 13ish years I have accumulated a few so I picked out one that was a little larger than the rest and went with it, and I also thought snowflakes would work well on the pop-up mechanism, so this is the card I came up with.

You Make me Happy-C4C513

Wow has this month just flown by, I have totally enjoyed hosting for the Crazy4Challenges blog this month and I loved seeing all the cards that the amazingly talented design team have come up with. We are down to the last challenge and for this challenge I thought I would try something different. I had a piece of art where I work and I always found it interesting, It totally wouldn’t work in my living room but I thought that it would make a great challenge. So the challenge was to use this piece of art as inspiration. The designers were able to choose to use it as a colour challenge, design, texture, or however it spoke to them. I’m anxious to see what they did. 🙂

Inspiration Art

and this is what I came up with

Snowflake Mobile C4C512- inspiration from a card

Hello, we are working our way through November, and I am on week 4 of hosting the Crazy4Challenges blog. I was trying to be creative with my challenges, so for this week I challenges the group to use a card that had been given to them as inspiration, it was allowed to be a homemade card or a store bought card. I choose a store bought birthday card I had received from my children, I like monochromatic cards, and this one had a peek-a-boo window that I thought would be fun. I added a pop out arm to create a mobile 😊

Snowflake Shaker Card

I love shaker cards, this one is a little different. Instead of having a large shaker window, I have smaller snowflake sized windows, and the window shapes are cut through the front and middle pf the card with the shaker bits added to the very back panel.

Flying Dragon Castle Card

Soooo I know I’ve posted quite a few castle cards, but this one was a special request that I just couldn’t say no to. So as to not be too repetitive I tried something a little different. I tried my hand at creating a castle using the Sundae Pop up die set as the mechanism. there is a video that Karen made as a tutorial which I followed but changed a little. Karen made a sandcastle card and I made a Hogwarts castle with a dragon that moves a little when the card opens and closes.
