Japanese Doll Card Parade

A Sneak Peek

Here's the 'Polished Stone' version of my Japanese Doll Card. I kept the general layout and added some Brushed Gold card stock to the kimono and to the punched Eyelet Border. The PS border and kimono have been done with So Saffron, Certainly Celery and Gold re-inkers. The little pedi-cab is all the way from Cambodia, courtesy of my hubby, who went there last year on a Mission Trip with the church we attend.

Spot the Difference

Here's the four different styles of dolls that I made for my Hobart Swaps. They were a lot of fun to make. I'll be showing a large group of ladies, at the TEAR Fundraiser tonight, how they can make their own!

My Swaps

Ok! So the 'twenty something' one was not as much fun to make as the first! Phew! I finally finished. Now I just have to put the Project Recipe on the back. If I get time, I'm anxious to make some more swaps using the Winter Post stamp set. I'll see how things go. The motivation is there but there's only 24 hours in a day!

My Favourite

This little cutie has the same Project Recipe as the earlier post. There's just a couple of things to add - I used Circle Circus Stamps in the Tangerine Tango border to match the Haiku DSP and the hair is made with the 1 1/4" circle punch.

That's the end of the Japanese Doll Card Parade for now. I hope you enjoyed browsing and have been inspired to do some 'creating' of your own! Click here for the Japanese Doll instructions on Kirsteen's Blog.

A correction needs to go on the Project Recipe for these - I incorrectly put that I used a large oval punch. It should have said WIDE OVAL PUNCH on the Swaps. Apologies to anyone that was confused by the error!

These little dollies are just adorable! The Haiku paper is perfect and I can see that I might just have to have a go at making some of my own. SO sweet!

Doily Cards

I was going a little stir crazy so decided to end my 'blog fasting' today. I lasted 2 weeks which isn't the entire month of March that I was aiming for but I have severely cut down my Internet usage and spent my 'free' time getting my priorities a little more in order :) Here are some doily cards I wanted to share with you on this beautiful March Long Weekend Holiday. Inspiration came from a very CAS Card I found through Pinterest. For a Stampin' Up! ® version of this card, please check out what I made using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and co-ordinating die. Butterfly Die - Marianne Creatables (Thanks to Lisa Lara at Splitcoast for recognising this card as a CAS favourite for the week) Newsprint Bird - Hero Arts Gorgeous DSP from First Edition Paper - Isabelle Flowers from Kaiser Craft Sentiments from STAMP-IT Leaf Flourish - Marianne Creatables Stamps - SU Bird Die - Sizzix Oval Frame Bird and Pendant Stamps- Hero A

Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box

Hi there.  I've been eying off some great examples of Z-fold, pop-up cards on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make one.  I tweaked the basic design a little by adding some inserts; the ones you use in card-in-a-box style cards.  So I've called my take on this fun fold, a Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box! - It's a crate full of summer strawberries with some home-made strawberry jam sitting on the kitchen bench. Summer Strawberries   This card was made for a dear friend's birthday and I'm also entering it into two card challenges - JAI #318 - "Just Add S"    S is for ... strawberries, strawberry jam, straw and summer! Thanks, JAI!   and ...  JUGs #350 - Word Week   Here's a bird's eye view before I added all the stamped strawberries etc. -   Folds flat and fits inside a standard (C6) card size envelope -   Thanks for stopping by, Please note that this is the ori

Scallop Circle Easel Card Tutorial

Punch Potpourri Scallop Circle Easel Card in the Dynamic Duo of Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink 1. Score a piece of card stock through the middle (which is double the length of your die) and line up the folded piece over the Scallop Circle Die (SCD) leaving 4 scallops at the top to form the base of your card. This is how it should look after you run it through the Big Shot Machine . 2. Score a line through the middle of the top Scallop Circle and fold upwards. 3. Apply Sticky Strip or glue to half the Scallop Circle as shown above. 4. Cut out a single Scallop Circle in the same colour (Melon Mambo) and stick it to the folded half so the top layer sits up like an easel (The top half that is facing will now be a double layer and the bottom half, a single layer of card stock). 5. Cut two circles using the lighter shade (Pretty In Pink) and attach one to the base of the card. Sponge around the edges with the darker shade of ink before gluing the other circle to the
