Just Add Ink Challenge # 29 - Colour

Scalloped Envy

There's a colour challenge on at Just Add Ink and I decided to make a little scalloped pocket to hold a gift card inside! After all things masculine last week, I went with something very pretty and feminine for this round!

The template that I used is a Freebie from Creations by AR, called Scalloped Envy. You can download the pattern HERE.

My week has been super busy so I didn't get around to photographing it open with a gift card inside and besides, I didn't want to ruin that near perfect bow!! ;)

Here's the yummy colour combo that is on offer this week at Just Add Ink. I hope it gets your creative juices flowing.

Project Recipe for Scalloped Envy -
Stamp Sets: Bella's Bloom, Tiny Tags
Card Stock: Textured Rose Red and Very Vanilla
Stampin' Write Markers: Rose Red and Always Artichoke
Accessories: Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder, Kraft Taffeta Ribbon, Lots of Tags Die, Bella Bleu DSP, Paper Piercing Tool, Rich Regals Brad

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 -

S is for ... strawberries, strawberry jam, straw and summer!
Thanks, JAI!

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…
