Inkspirations Sketch Challenge #53

Happy Birthday Jenna

Yay! I finally had the time to join in with an Inkspirations Challenge. I'm enjoying playing around with Basic Black and Very Vanilla this week as well as the gorgeous silhouette image of the girl from the Easter Blossoms Set.

As this card will be heading off to Devonport for my niece's birthday, I covered over the eggs in the basket with Flower Soft and added a Perfect Plum Button to match. Jenna loves purple and I hope she loves this card for her 24th Birthday! (We moved into our house the day she was born so it's always easy to remember how long we've lived here!)

I love your card and this stamp. Would love to buy it, but don't make Easter cards. How did you make the flowers with the item Flower Soft, I've never heard of it. Is it easy to use. I am signing off as anonymous as I don't know what Google Accounts and the rest are. Deb (SA)

Oh, this is just lovely. I love that silhouette stamp and the way you've used it with vanilla and black and just a hint of colour is perfect. Gorgeous embossed background too.

Hi Deb from SA you can buy Flower Soft from just about any scrapbooking store (lots of different colours). I applied Tombow glue to the 'eggs'and sprinkled over some FS. Easy!

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!

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…
