Just Add Ink Colour Challenge #47

Extreme Elements ...

... meets Grunge Rock

... for the latest Colour Challenge at Just Add Ink

Do you love a colour challenge? What a fun mix of colours for this week's challenge at Just Add Ink. Why don't you give it a go and hop on over to JAI to view the wonderful samples from the DT and to upload your entry there!!

I just loved Jo Eades' swap that I received a few weeks ago and couldn't wait to ink up the Extreme Elements set for the first time. Now that my school reports are 'done and dusted' and the Summer Holidays are just around the corner, I can 'chillax' a bit ... well at least until my next SU order arrives (It contains the new stamps that I need for my UStamp with Dawn and Friends Project) ... exciting!

I've made a scallop circle easel card and a rectangular easel card/calendar before so I thought it was time to try a square one!!

Here's the Project Recipe -
Stamp Sets: Extreme Elements, Extreme Guitar, Grunge Rock
Ink: TT, DD, RHR, BG
Cardstock: Whisper White, DD, TT, RHR (textured), BG
Accessories: Paper Piercing Tool, Crimper, Lattice Embossing Folder, Stamping Sponge, Dimensionals. TT Stampin' Write Marker, Blender Pen
Non-SU: Mini Calendar (from local craft shop)

Thanks for taking a peek,

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…
