Rainbow Shaker- C4C551

Wow am I happy the weekend is here, and for us here in Canada 🇨🇦 it is a long weekend 😀. I was able to take the time this week to play along with this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge. Apparently September is “Shake Month”, technically this relates to milkshakes however for the challenge this week we were to create a shaker card. Now I’ve made a lot of shaker cards so I decided to do something I haven’t tried before and I made a rainbow shaker card I was inspired by a CARD I made a few months ago . I do not have a dieset that cuts out all the windows I did have to do this myself so check out my details below to see how I pulled this off

Birthday Beverages-c4c539

Happy Weekend, anyone up for a beverage 🍸🍹🥃. I’ve been MIA from the Crazy4Challenges challenges for the last couple of weeks as life has thrown me a few curve balls lately but I was able to create a card for this week. Apparently it’s world gin day so this weeks challenge was to think of cocktails, juniper berries, the colours and flavours of gin, pink, orange blossom, rhubarb, blood orange, violet, passion fruit, pineapple, mango,and lime. Wow this was interesting but I think I nailed it.

Rainbow Circles slimline Shaker card-C4C534

Hello everyone, I hope everyone is healthy and well. Through this time of Covid 19 I have made a few “Thinking of You” cards. I made this one for a friend who really wanted to send a card to a special loved one in her life. This time is so hard on everyone and I thought this card would brighten someone’s day. It is also Crazy4Challenges time and this weeks challenge is to make a slim line card. A slime line card is a long skinny card, my card is 4”x9” so it fits the challenge 😀

No Border Hoppy Birthday Shaker card-C4C532 🐸

I’d like to start by apologizing for being MIA for the last week, I’ve been working on some pretty detailed cards, and I’m still working full time so my Craftroom time as been pretty limited. This is my last weekend of hosting the Crazy4Challenges blog, it was so much fun, I can’t believe we are almost done with April (where did it go 🤔) on with the challenge, so apparently, according to the days of the year calendar April 25th is save the frogs day so this weeks challenge is to make a card with a frog 🐸 on it. I also decided I needed to make a “No Border” (at least on the sides) shaker card 🤯

Surprise Elephant Birthday Card-C4C527

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.

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. 🙂

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.

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…
