I’ve been fighting a migraine for the last few days so I dug out a card from my Stampin up days. It is sooooo adorable, I just love Elmo. I actually made a stack of these at the time because I made them as part of a card swap. So these are easy to make multiples of and would also make great birthday invitations. If you want to change the colours and a few other small changes you could make any of the characters.Continue reading “Elmos Hip-Hip-Hooray Birthday card”
Welcome to the weekend Woo Hoo, is it just me or was this a really long week, wow. With all the craziness going on right now with the COVID-19 I am looking forward to a quiet weekend and hopefully some time in my craft space. I am so anxious to share this card, it cracks me up every time I open it. Lol 😆 I have been looking forward to making this card ever since I saw Karen Aiken’s Monkey Card for some reason I kept thinking the ovals would make great elephant ears.
This card is also a Crazy4Challenges challenge and this weeks challenge was a design challenge. I had to use a sketch for the front of the card and I was free to do the inside however I wanted. And this is what I came up with.
This card is so much better in a video, so to see this card in motion please check out my Facebook or my Instagram Please feel free to join my Facebook page if you would like to share your own crafty creations

Ever since Karen Burniston came out with the fun Surprise Ball pop up there have been so many fun animal cards. I have a friend who asked if I could make her a Long Horned Cow so I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to try my hand at a double surprise pop up animal. I thought he was lonely so I made him some friends 🐑🐓🐐🐖🐎Continue reading “The Gangs All Here”
This is a card I made by request. I was ask to make a card similar to this card. Whenever I get a request to make a card based on an other card I always try to make it different or better. When I made the first card and it was finished I had regretted not making the buttons interactive in some way as well. So this card was my second chance.Continue reading “Spin Me Right Round 2.0”
Well I had a busy weekend making cards, I am currently working on three and not one is finished yet. So I dug into my older cards again (sorry) and I found this cutie, it is a card panel that I used for a gift card. When my kids were younger I would make gift cards like this when I knew that wanted a video game (usually for Christmas) but I wasn’t sure want they wanted or what they may have been getting from family. Much cuter than an actual gift card and it entitled them to one free game. We always wrote a note on the back. I can’t take credit for this dude as I CASEd him from Leena Girsa from alacards.blogspot.com way back in 2013, I tracked down her blog and she still has it posted http://alacards.blogspot.com/2013/03/lots-to-show-you.html there are a few slight differences but otherwise its a pretty close CASE

Wow, I was digging through my cards and I found this one, lol. I use to LOVE punchart. I remember checking blogs, and website trying to find new creations to CASE and even coming up with some of my own. I did not invent these guys, when I made this card I was seeing them everywhere, so I don’t know who the original person one who though a scalloped circle would make a cute Muppet head. lol.

OK so this card is quite the flashback. This card was created back before I had a BigShot, seems like forever ago and had to be created using punches. Anyway, my kids had been invited to a Luau themed birthday and wanted a Luau themed birthday card, hmmmmm what to do. I can’t take full credit for this card as it is a conglomeration of multiple cards that I found on Stampin Connection from other Stampin’ Up demos (I will give credit below) It was a fun card to assemble and it went over quite well. I still have to laugh because at the time when I found the sample of the Hula dancer I was going to use she didn’t have a bikini sting in the back and my daughter was quite put out that there was the implication that she may be topless. My hula dancer has a bikini top string 🙂

Another card created back in my punchart days. I used to really like making cute little characters out of random punches. The Trifold design was also very popular for a while. Most of these ideas I found scrolling through SplitCoast Stampers, the elf I came up with on my own.

I had soooooo much fun making this card. This is another throwback and I believe my sister was the recipient if this card as she loves shoes and shopping and I thought she would get a kick out of this card. A few years ago before I had the extensive die collection that I have now if I wanted a fun character I had to create them and usually out of punches and cardstock. I would google and look up directions for every and any fun character I could find but this one is my creation, I actually created all the Disney princess at that time and I called them my faceless princesses. ( I will post them periodically). I recently found them on Pinterest but they were uploaded from SplitcoastStampers. SCS is a website that crafters can share their creations and I uploaded them to there, back in 2010 😮 under the username nickel-pickle, feel free to check them out if you like (unable to create a link just search nickel-pickle on their website and it will show my creations from 2010 and my current creations, I took a break in the middle.
