Bliss Note Card - JAI #52

Bliss Note Card

I just realised as I uploaded this photo that this little note card has ...

... something old,
something new,
nothing borrowed
something blue!

For this week's sketch at Just Add Ink, I wanted to use Baja Breeze and went in search of some DSP to match and came across a few scraps of Parisian Breeze - 'Sigh!' It still is my absolute favourite pick of all the DSPs past and present.

I think the sketch for Challenge #52 is absolutely A1 gorgeous and I hope many of you will be able to join in this week. Sketch challenges are great because you can use any colours or stamp sets that you like and the layout is all worked out for you!! I've used the upcoming Sale-a-bration stamp set called 'Bliss' (again) as I think it's totally gorgeous!

I should also mention that I decided to use one of my note cards from my stash. They're often overlooked in the catalogue but they're just the right size to add to a gift. You can find them on page 123 of the Australian/NZ IB & C in a pack of 20 with matching envelopes for only $9.50.

JAI Sketch for Challenge #52

I'm looking forward to tonight because Tania, Mae and I are getting together for some crafting fun and on another note, it's only 4 months until a few more of the JAI Team will meet up for Convention in Melbourne! Yay! Can't wait.

Happy crafting,

Love your little note card Bron. The colours are delish and I think you're going to convince me to get Bliss first! Parisian Breeze is still my all time fave too *sigh*.

Have loads of fun on your 'girls crafting' wish I could join you guys.
Yet another gorgeous card Bronwyn. I love the way you've done the butterfly. Parisian Breeze is my favourite dsp ever too. Amazingly, I still have a lot of it left because it was just too beautiful to use! Stupid reasoning I know!!!

Just lovely Bron. I've never used those note cards, maybe I should add a pack to my next order.

Can't wait to meet you at convention either!

Absolutely love this creation Bronwyn. It is a fab sketch and I love the colour combo and DSP as well. I'm still saving some for special occasions. Can't wait to play with the Bliss set.

Your cards are amazing! Especially the ones that you have just posted. Really professional
I have been so preoccupied the last couple of weeks ... and have missed the JAI challenges. I do love to play along ... but ...
School Holidays = "more time to stamp"??????
Sch Hols = "more distractions".
Lovely combos on this one Bronwyn! Hugs xxaxx

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…
