A CASE with Three Different Colour Combos

Stampin' Up! often add some great ideas to the Demonstrators' Personal Web Sites. I've CASED just one of their fantastic samples. You'll find the Project Recipe and the original card featured HERE.

I made some minor changes by substituting the featured DSP with a Tangerine Tango coloured DSP from the Haiku Collection and a sentiment from Tiny Tags instead of Teeny Tiny Sentiments.

This is one of the cards the ladies will be making this Friday night at my dINKy chicks' stamp club.

The next one I made using the colours from the latest Colour Challenge at Just Add Ink. It was one of my colour combo suggestions and Amanda and Danielle decided to run with it for this week's challenge.

I have had a break from the Design Team due to holidays and the busyness of life but I will be back on Friday 2nd July with a new submission! Can't wait to get back into the swing of things with some extra DT Members alongside too! Awesome!

Why don't you pop on over to the Just Add Ink site and give this combo a whirl? You have until midnight this Wednesday to get your entry in!

The last one (excuse the flash photography) was made using the colours inspired by the new Cottage Wall DSP which you'll find in the Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue.

With the 'epidemic' of births amongst my friends lately, I thought I had better get cracking and make a couple of baby cards to celebrate the arrival of Jaimee Maree and Josie Willow!

Well, that's it for now. It feels good to get back into some serious card making and blogging.

I may be biased but I love the middle colour combo the best. Which one is your fave?

I really like these Bronwyn - so effective and I love the three different interpretations.

I can't decide between the top two, although I must say I love the Cottage Garden DSP. Great show of versatility of templates and same design.

These is adorable, but I'm with Mae - simply can't split the first two!

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.

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!

Here's a bird's eye view before I added all the stamped strawberries etc. -

Thanks for stopping by, Please note that this is the original card for this type of fold. I came up with the idea of adding the card inserts to a z-fold. A v…

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 front of the card.

6. Stamp…
