Falalala Flurries- 5 different slimline cards,1 Stamp set, 1 set up PART 5

Aaaannnnd then there were 5. Here is my fifth and last card that I made using the same stamps set up the same way. The colours look close to the same as Card 2 but they are slightly different, on card 2 I only used one colour of ink on the panel which was Bermuda Bay, on this card I used Bermuda Bay, Pool Party and Coastal Cabana, it is hard to tell the subtle differences in the photo. I have to say this is my favourite card of the five. Here are the other cards, CARD 1, CARD 2, CARD 3 and CARD 4,

Snowflake Soirée- 5 different slimline cards 1 stamp set, 1 set up PART 2

Ok, I’ve got card #2 today. If you read PART 1 you would know that I started this by making 5 panels from the same stamp set, set up the same way. Some I did on Water Colour paper and some I did on Vellum cardstock. The card I’m showing today is one that I made from the vellum. I really like how this technique turned out. The photo doesn’t do it justice.

Blue Christmas C4C564- 5 different slimline cards 1 stamp set, 1 set up- PART 1

Hello, hello, hello, this is the first time I’ve done a multi part blog post but this is the only way I can continue posting semi regularly but still keep this idea that I had (as all 5 cards aren’t done yet 😜) work out. This idea started with this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge which was to create a Christmas card with Blue in it, think Elvis’s “Blue Christmas” and I wanted to stamp and emboss Silver snowflakes. So I dug out my Stamping platform and was setting up and thought since it’s on the platform I might as well do more than one. So I did a few on watercolour paper and I did a few on vellum card stock and just knew I wanted to do them all different so an idea was born LOL. I’ve read a few comments from crafters this last few weeks about struggling to find different ideas on making different Christmas cards. Well this way you can use some of the same supplies but still come out with five different cards. (I will edit this post once I have all 5 cards posted so they are easier to find. I’m not sure if each card will gets it’s own post but will figure it out as I go)

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.

Snowflake Mobile C4C512- inspiration from a card

Hello, we are working our way through November, and I am on week 4 of hosting the Crazy4Challenges blog. I was trying to be creative with my challenges, so for this week I challenges the group to use a card that had been given to them as inspiration, it was allowed to be a homemade card or a store bought card. I choose a store bought birthday card I had received from my children, I like monochromatic cards, and this one had a peek-a-boo window that I thought would be fun. I added a pop out arm to create a mobile 😊

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.

Christmas in July Snowflake card ❄️C4C492

It’s C4C day and today’s challenge is to make a Christmas card, Honestly I have a hard time making Christmas this far in advance, I see people chatting about starting their Christmas cards early so they aren’t so rushed closer to the season but for some reason my brain does not really want to go there. I had actually jumped ahead and did next week’s card first and I still had some of the paper still sitting on my work table. I had originally thought I would water colour my card for next week but hadn’t so my palette with inks in it and paintbrush were still there so I played with it and a piece of watercolour paper, I grabbed my favourite snowflake stamp set, a KB die set and away I went.
