Just Add Ink Swap Hop

Photobucket


We recently had a card swap at Just Add Ink... If you haven't come across it before, a swap is where all participants make multiple copies of one card design and send them off to the rest of the group. What you end up with is a copy of everyone's cards, but you've only had to design one! So we thought we'd share them with you all on a Swap (Blog) Hop!

Here are a few details about what's happening... There are 14 stops on our Swap Hop (Just Add Ink and each of our 13 Design Team members), but the hop is set up in a loop so it doesn't matter where you start. All you need to do to follow along is click the Swap Hop button at the end of each post and you'll be taken to the next stop! The great part of that is that you can do the Swap Hop whenever you want.

Here's a round-up of all the swaps I made for the Just Add Ink Design Team Members. To make it a little more interesting I decided to consult the new Stampin' Up! Colour Coach and work with the Dynamic Duo Colour Combinations.

I've listed who received each one and the colours used.

Grab a cuppa and happy browsing!

These are fantastic. I love mine, it sits on top of my ribbon storage so I can look at it all the time. I just had a friend over crafting today, and she cased the easel style using the scallop circle, worked perfectly. TFS

Wow - these are just fantastic. I love seeing all the colours you did and enjoy this one on my desk every time I come to stamp. Thank you. Chantell

Well of course I love my colour combo! All of them are gorgeous Thanks Bron for all your hardwork with these.

Far out, Bronwyn! What an awesome idea, to use the Dynamic Duos! I think your cards are gorgeous - so hard to pick just one. (I love how you said who you sent which colour combo to - I think you got them so right!). My favourites are probably the Marina Mist/Bashful Blue you sent to Danielle, and the Early Espresso/Soft Suede you sent to Paula. But, as I said, hard to choose, as they're ALL fabulous!
Helen Williams said…
Very beautiful Bron.
I love the colour combos and how you made a different colour for each of the DT.

Tania Gould said…
Oh wow this posting must've taken ages! They ALL look so stunning! Its like a little smorgasbord - sit back and choose the one that takes your fancy the most!!!!
Sue Bayliss said…

AmandaR said…
Pick a fave? Are you KIDDING ME?!? They are all so very stunning, mine is sitting on my desk in all it's inspiring beauty. :) xx
Patrice said…
Sooo much work in these Bron and all of the colour combos are terrific. You know which my favourite is :o) mine!!!!

Truly lovely lovely cards.
My goodness there is so much on each of these cards, it must have taken you ages to create them all!
Jamie Adcock said…
They're all lovely, but I think the Cajun Craze/Blushing Bride combo are my favorites!
Mae Collins said…
I was so blown away by this card from Bron and when I knew she had made individual colour combos for us all even more so! I have to say I LOVED my colour combo and have bought the Scallop Circle Die as a result of this swap and am about to make a card inspired by this design. Thanks Bron! :)
Brenda said…
Bronwyn, all the cards are beautiful, the Garden Green/Pear Pizzazz and Marina Mist/Bashful Blue ones drew me back and back -- great job! TFS

Is this a version of an easel card? If so, would you mind sharing the directions?
Richelle said…
These colour combos truly are dynamic duos!! Love them all!!!!
Keryn Campbell said…
So hard to choose a colour combo, all of your easel cards are beautiful, but if I had too it would be Not Quite Navy and Baja Breeze.
Paula Dobson said…
Such fantastic examples of how well all our colours go together! I was thrilled with my "earthy" card. So much so, I have already cased it for a friends birthday - only mine is square! Thanks for the gorgeous sample!
Christine Blain said…
Good grief, Bron - you are AMAZING!! I started looking through to try to pick a favourite, but couldn't possibly. They are all incredibly beautiful.
H2 :) said…
These are stunning Bron! It is so sweet that you made everyone their very own special colour combo. TFS. :)
Rose said…
These are all soo yummy! Delicious eye candy :)
Jodene said…
I could not possibly pick a favourite colour combo, although I LOVED mine :) They are all stunning. You put so much work into these Bron, and I am so glad I got to receive one of them to have on show. How lucky am I!
KimB said…
I love every single one - and treasure the fact that I have one!! Love your idea of trying out the power colour combos - that's dedication for you!!
Kim
Jo said…
Bron, I can't tell you how much I love your card. The scallop die is also now on my 'must have' list. All the colour combos are beautiful, but I especially love mine. Thank you.
I really enjoyed seeing these when you were in the middle of creating them Bronwyn ... but it is so FAB to see all the colour combos together! Love all the gorgeous details. My fav is the Old Olive / Certainly Celery ... but then ... I am a GREEN fan! What a treat for all those who received one of these yummy cards! Hugs xxaxx
Genelle Little said…
WOW Bronwyn! These are absolutely stunning - I love the colours and would find it too hard to pick one favourite. Having said that I really love the Cajun Craze/Peach Parfait combo - wouldn't have thought to use these colours together before!

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. -



Folds flat and fits inside a standard (C6) card size envelope -



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…
