Just Add Wheels

The Just Add Ink Team have combined with the Helping Hudson Fundraiser gals to bring you this week's challenge - JUST ADD WHEELS!!!

Here's my DT submission -

A Wheel Card

... with a stamped wheel image (skateboard)
and a Jumbo Wheel (Neighborhood)

The Four Pictures within the Wheel

Over at the Hudson Fundraising Site, a group of very dedicated ladies have put together a wonderful blog to help raise money for little Hudson who needs a Kid Walker! There's a competition posted every day and three challenges every week, plus a heap of amazing tutorial packs to buy. Why don't you check out this 'Wheely Great Cause'? The link is on my side bar and at the beginning of this post.

With my card for this week, I also went with the idea of a birthday card for a little boy!! I think Hudson will be turning three next birthday??

I cracked open my pack off Ballet Blue Cardstock and took the wrapping off the matching ink pad that I had bought months ago to combine with the bright, Real Red for a 'junior' look (but alas ... Ballet Blue is about to retire after I've just 'discovered' its appeal).

Here's the List of Bits 'n' Bobs that I used to make the Wheel Card -
Stamp Sets: All in the Family, Family Favourites, Family Accessories Too, Neighborhood Jumbo Wheel, Family Phrases
Cardstock: Ballet Blue, Real Red, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black, Ballet Blue, Real Red
Accessories: Real Red Stampin' Write Marker, White Gel Pen, Jumbo White Brad, Dimensionals, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Timeless Type Junior Alphabet Die, Real Red Polka Dot Ribbon (from Summer Mini Catalogue)

The FREE TEMPLATE for the Wheel Card is from Victorine Originals.

Happy Crafting and enjoy the weekend. I know I will because I'll finally get a chance to play with my new pre-order goodies!! Can't wait.

PS: I've just discovered this card was chosen for Nancy Riley's iPicks! I feel very honoured. I love checking out her 'selections' each week - so inspirational! (August 30th)

What a clever idea for the wheels challenge! I love the fun images you used for the wheel - I reckon my Mr 2 would love this to bits (quite possibly literally) if I made him one when he turns 3.

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!
and ...
 JUGs #350 - Word Week

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…
