Two More Projects for Friday's Big Shot Class

Scallop Envelope Box

No... you don't have to be a Big Shot to attend Friday night's stamp club but you get to create these examples with the Big Shot embossing and die cutting machine - my favourite toy!

The above example uses the Scallop Envelope Die (X4). It's simply a matter of sticking the side flaps together to form a box, add a cute little birdie on a branch made from the Two-Step Bird Punch and that's about all there is to it.

I used the sturdy Sweet Slumber Specialty DSP for the box and Riding Hood Red Striped Grosgrain Ribbon to tie up the cellophane bag.


This card
is a combination of two designs which I received as SWAPS at the National Convention in Sydney. I drew inspiration from Peggy Quarmby and Melinda Taylor. Thanks, ladies.

Project Recipe:
Stamps: Vintage Vogue
Cardstock: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Soft Suede
Accessories: Bella Rose DSP, Top Note Die, Dimensionals, Dazzling Diamonds, Two-Way Glue Pen

Until next time ... Happy Crafting!

Love the cute box, which I was in Launceston to attend your class. If I didn't have a couple of things on this weekend I might have hitched a ride up with my friend who is going to Launceston this weekend and attended your class!

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…
