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.

Hogwarts Bridge Card

sooo if you have been following my blog you may have noticed that I have quite a few Harry Potter cards, apparently I know a lot of people who enjoy Harry Potter LOL, I do try very hard to make my cards different or to try different techniques to make each one special. My niece is a huge Harry Potter fan so I really wanted to make a special card just for her so I decided to make a bridge card.

Ha Ha Happy Birthday-C4C505

Welcome to the weekend, and another Crazy4Challenges challenge. this weeks challenge was to focus on the Sentiment, to make the sentiment the star of the card. I had to think a bit on this one, but then it came to me when a friend asked me to make a Birthday card for her son. I know him a little and I know that he fairly recently got a tattoo of the “HA HA HA” Joker themed tattoo. We gave him a bit of a hard time about the tattoo so I thought he would get a kick out of a Joker themed card using the same kind of look as the tattoo.

I have to say this card was actually a little frustrating to make at first, as everything I was trying to do was not turning out like I had planned, so I kept putting my mistakes aside and trying again or moving on, but in the end I ended using all the mistake pieces, some extra pieces, I changed ideas as I went, and the card turned out way better for it than I thought it would.

Love You a Latte

sorry it’s been awhile, I haven’t had much chance to play in my my craft room, but I did tonight 🙂 and this is what I came up with. I have had this Coffee cup pop up die set since the spring, and I have used it a couple of times but never as it was originally intended, lol so I thought that I would give it a try. It turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself.

Pop up, Shaker, 50th Birthday card-C4C502

I’ve been pretty busy the last few weeks making some pretty detailed cards, so it has been difficult to actually blog, stay tuned there are some interesting cards coming ( I also work full time)but here is one I am finally able to post. It is the weekend so that means it’s time for the Crazy4Challenges challenge and I created this card for that challenge. So apparently September 15th is International Dot day, so the challenge was to incorporate dots into my design. Some are obvious and some are so itty bitty you may not notice unless I point them out, But they are there. This card was a special request from my coworker Katherine to her sister, and some of the little elements added were suggestions from Katherine to make the card a little more personal. so here we go, can you see all the dots…

Autumn Leaves Anniversary Card -C4C499

The weekend has rolled around again so that means another Crazy 4 Challenges challenge. This weeks challenge is called “Cut up Stamping”, this means that after you stamp an image or a background you cut out a section of the image. Most of the examples that I have seen usually it is a strip that is cut out, but you can try cutting it anyway that works for you. I watched a Jennifer McGuire video months ago so I was kind of working off some tips that she suggested in that video. In a lot of the samples I have seen the images tended to be floral, I wanted to do something different so I opted to do some autumn trees, this is an anniversary card for a couple that I am very close to that has an autumn anniversary (and they don’t go on the internet EVER (besides Netflix)so it is safe to post. (if you are reading this and can guess who this couple is DON’T tell them about this card 😀)
