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. 🙂
and this is what I came up with

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.

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…

Hello, today I have a card that I made a while back before I had my blog, so I didn’t take a lot of photos as I was assembling it. I think the Ring Accordion makes a fun and unique card and can be used for any occasion, this is one that I made for my son.
Hello, it’s Saturday so today I have another Crazy4Challenges challenge. This week is a sketch challenge ( for those of you who may not know a sketch challenge is when the team is given a sketch and we have to use the sketch as inspiration to make the card), I also decided to challenge myself by choosing a colour palette that is a little outside my comfort zone. The orange colour is called Tangerine Tango and before this card, I have never used it, it came in mix packs of cardstock and it was accumulating in my drawer so I thought I would give it a go once I found the bright striped paper I was going to use.
I’ve got a pretty blingy card today, it was a 17th Birthday card for my daughter and I wanted to reflect her sparkly personality 🙂 I used a lot of pastel colours, glitter paper, and blingy little gems. Oh, and how can I forgot I added a pop up 17 and a shaker element on the front.
Here is a flashback Valentines card that I made my Hubby a few years ago. It is a super cute card that I can’t take full credit for as it was inspired by a card that was made by Jennifer McGuire but I’d like to think that the changes that I made help make this card my own 🙂
