Crazy 4 Challenges - Leaves

During the fall and spring seasons, leaves are all around us.  The Crazy 4 Challenges team are making cards in which the only images are leaves.  I found this patterned paper in my stash, die cut a few leaves, and sentiment.....easy card!

Crazy 4 Challenges - Black Cat Day

I never knew there was such a thing as Black Cat Day, but my Crazy 4 Challenges team member, Kathleen Adams, says there is.  SO.....we're to make a card with a cat on it or make a Halloween card.  I love Halloween so that's what I chose.

Crazy 4 Challenges - Cancer Awareness Day

Today is Cancer Awareness Day.  The Crazy 4 Challenges members are making cards in support for someone who is currently fighting cancer or a card to cheer someone up.  I have stretched the meaning of the theme a little bit to make it a celebration card.  My parents are celebrating 52 years of marriage and if you look hard enough they have survived each other for a really long time.  LOL
I've used Karen Burniston's Spinner Square Pop Up for my card base.  I die cut an opening in the front of the card so the stamped sentiment can be viewed whilst closed.  The "Celebrate" die cut is a framelit from Stampin' Up! called Celebrate You.
When you open the card, you can still see the sentiment and the milestone of 52 years of marriage!  Congrats to my parents!

Happy Stampin',

Karen Burniston's Paper Pros - Holiday Cheer

It's a "Holiday Cheer" theme today with Karen Burniston's Paper Pros challenge.  I chose to cheer about Halloween!

I used Karen Burniston's Halloween Scene, Halloween Elements and Word Set 2 - Birthday to create the front of my Boo-day card.  I created this card for my co-worker who loves Halloween and it just happens to be her birthday as well.  I wanted to keep the front simple (it was very hard for me not to add more bling)!  I even decorated an envelope to match.
Oh look at those fun hands and the ghost!  Just a little peek of what's coming LOL.
I used the Spinner Square Die to create the base card.  I added several elements that will move when the card opens.  Don't let those hands grab you!  I used the hands again to hold the signature area die cut using the Katherine Label Pop Up.

Happy Stampin',

Crazy 4 Challenges C4C454 - Fall

We have made it to the end of September and that means it's my final week to be hostess for the Crazy 4 Challenges team.  My final challenge for the team is to make a fall card.  The team will be putting leaves, or trees with beautiful fall colors, or anything that says fall to them.
I started off by embossing a piece of cardstock with the new Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder and sponging some black ink around the edges.  I applied the owl sticker to a piece of Whisper White and used colored pencils to color him in.
I used the Transfer Sheet to apply the negative image of the owl to the inside of my card.

Crazy 4 Challenges - Birthday Card with Numbers

It's time for a birthday challenge with Crazy 4 Challenges.  I've challenged the team to make a birthday card and put numbers on it.  I admit that I have an ulterior motive for setting this challenge - it's my son Jake turns 12 next week!
So I set forth to search my stash for pattern paper with numbers and got busy creating.  He can climb trees like nobody's business and I used to say he can climb like a monkey.....hence the monkey stamp.

I used Karen Burniston's Katherine Label Pop Up to animate another monkey and the sentiment.  I also added another strip of the numbered patterned paper and made the "12" stand out by adding a star as I did on the front.
When the card opens fully, the sentiment panel and monkey move up to the top of the card!  It's so much fun and I love the up-side-down monkey with the googley eyes.

Karen Burniston's Paper Pros - Spots

The Paper Pros are seeing spots!  The team was challenged to make a card using spots since they work so well on cards.  I found this glittered spotty pattern paper in my stash.....and I was off creating my spotty card!
I wanted to make a sweet kitty card, so I pulled out Karen Burniston's Cat and Dog die set.  My kitty is ready to celebrate with her party hat and present using the Birthday Charms die set.  I stamped a sentiment from my stash onto a Katherine Label.
For the inside I made a cupcake filled tree using the Tree Pop Up and the Birthday Charms die set.  I used Word Set 2 for the sentiment and adhered it following the curve of the paper that was cut using Nature Edges.

Crazy 4 Challenges - Grandparents Day

Welcome back to my second week of hosting the Crazy 4 Challenges team!  It's grandparents day this month, so I challenged the team to make a card to show someone you love them or to show appreciation for what they do for you.  I know that my son is truly blessed to have such wonderful grandparents.
I used the interactive stamp and Thinlit set called You Move Me.  When you pull up on the center piece, the hummingbird appears to be fluttering!
