Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 87

Just Believe

This is the third card that I made today! I was on a roll thanks to some great inspiration from Karen Giron and her 87th Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

This weekend was the first chance I had to really get stuck into using some of my new goodies since the release of the new Australian SU Idea Book and Catalogue a month ago! Life has been too busy and I hope that I'll be able to find a better 'balance' in the coming weeks.

This card is for a friend's birthday - she loves the colour green!

Although you can't see the bow very well, I do need to point out that I used Paula's Tutorial on bow tying and it is one of the best I've seen. You have to check it out! It's so quick and easy to do.

Project Recipe:
Stamp Set: Just Believe
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write Marker
Cardstock: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Woodland Walk DSP, Jewels: Basic Pearls, Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon, Distressing Tool from Cutter Kit, Stamping Sponge, Mellow Moss Button (retired), Dimensionals, Linen Thread

Thanks for taking the time to look,

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!

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.

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…
