Just Add Ink Challenge #37 - Colour

Just Add Ink Challenge #37

There's a colour challenge on this week at Just Add Ink. I used a brand new set called 'Funky Four' because I thought it really suited the colour palette.

The Colours for this Week's Challenge

I must admit that I hadn't stamped for the entire month of September and the combination of a loss of mojo, wondering which new stamp set I was going to use, a heap of housework and just plain tiredness from catching up with some sleep after the trip home from Bali (a long delayed flight thanks to Jetstar) was enough to just about 'do my head in with this challenge'! After nearly 3 hours this is what I came up with, not to mention all the previous hours trying to think out a plan of attack!~ Well, I finally came up with something after several bits 'n' bobs going in the bin! Hope you like!

Project Recipe:
Stamp Sets: Funky Four, Hello Again, Woodgrain
Ink: All the challenge colours with either Classic Stampin' Pads or Stampin' Write Markers
Cardstock: Challenge Colours and Whisper White
Accessories: 1 1/4" Square Punch, Top Note Die, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by my blog,

So cute Bron. This set is on my wish list. Great job with those colours. Glad it wasn't my week this week :)
Isn't it funny how sometimes you can totally miss something in the catty ... until someone draws your attention to it! I had NEVER noticed this set before!!! Truly! And ... it is now on my wish list to team with the Forest Friends set that I have. Cute Cute Cute! Hugs xxaxx

HI Bronwyn,

great match of colours to stamps. Those little mushies look really fun and I LOVE the woodgrain background.

Bronwyn, this card is gorgeous, I love the use of the woodgrain on all the different colours, it ties it all in together, a great card.

Bron, it is totally adorable! Looks like it came together effortlessly, in true Bronwyn style; I hope you like the end result after all that agonising! Love the Woodgrain on the different coloured panels, and I agree the toadstools look super-cute in these colours. This is a GREAT card.

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!

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…
