her Favourite Things, Birthday card-C4C589

Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I’ve had to pack up my craft room so unfortunately I won’t be able to post very often, it will be temporary but I’m not sure how long. Anyway here is a card I made for my daughter and I decided to use this weeks challenge as a starting point. I thought this design would be great for adding all of her favourite things. This weeks challenge is a sketch challenge.

Here is the sketch

And this is what I came up with.

Sympathy Rose- C4C581

So April is winding down and it is my last week of hosting the Crazy4Challenges blog. This week I decided to do an inspiration challenge, I choose a piece of artwork from work because I always thought is was pretty, if you zoom in you will see that there are other colours that aren’t noticed right away, and gasp….. this isn’t a pop up card 😱

I had a hard time getting the effect that I was aiming for, after several attempts I gave up and tried something new, and this is what I came up with.

Birthday Pivot Twist slimline card-C4C576

Hello, hello, I felt like trying something I haven’t done yet when making this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge card. This weeks challenge is a sketch challenge, which means I follow the sketch for the front, but I can do whatever I want on the inside. I decided to do a fun pop up mechanism, using multiple die sets.

Here is the sketch

Boys and their Toys -C4C572

I am so excited to share this card, I love when I get asked to make a card and when I am first asked I am stumped, I love that I have to think about it and figure it out when I’m not sure how to start. Well this is one of those cards. I was asked to make a fun card for a 2 year old that loves big trucks, like dump trucks and loaders. The only thing is I don’t have ANYTHING in my craft room that has anything to do with trucks or loaders. I wasn’t even sure what mechanism to use to make it move. I also had to make a card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge which is a design challenge. It is a bit of a stretch but I think it works.

And here is my double truck card

Happy 22nd Birthday

So my son just turned 22 and I knew I wouldn’t be able to see him on his birthday so I knew I had to make him something extra special. He has been a Star Wars fan since before he can even remember, but I remember. I remember all the light sabres we had around the house (one of every colour), the voice changing masks and all the Lego space ships, there was so much lego. And the movies, on repeat, first on VHS, then on DVD, and finally on Blu Ray. At first I was a little stumped on what I was going to do for a card until he sent me a photo of his baby daughter wearing a Yoda hat 💖 💚 , and then I knew it had to be Star Wars. This is what I came up with.

Double Heart Pivot Panel Valentine-C4C568

I’ve been trying to think how to make a Slim line pivot panel card, and this is what I came up with, along the way I figured out a few things, I had a happy accident that I didn’t even realize until I started decorating, and I also used a helpful hint. This card was also made for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge which is to create a card using Purple 💜 and or green 💚, I choose to use both and this is what I came up with.

Monochromatic Swirly Shaker Slimline Mobile Card

This is a card that I made a very dear friend of mine, she is also my coworker so she often gets to see my cards before they are mailed out to their recipients and I have to say she is always full of such wonderful compliments I had to make her something special. I really liked how my Snowflake Mobile card turned out so I decided to try it with balloons. I also wanted to try to use the Karen Burniston Swirls Pattern Plate on a slimline card, and I got some realllly pretty glitter for Christmas that I couldn’t wait to use, and Voila I have a Monochromatic Swirly Shaker Slimeline Mobile card. 🤗

(I Post on multiple craft Facebook pages and I like to post my videos there as well but I have been having Internet issues so there is a likelihood I will only be able post it on my personal page.)
