Embossing on Fabric

Here's another card that I made which uses the technique that Vanessa Webb demonstrated at Convention in Melbourne - embossing fabric.

I stamped onto the material (100% Cotton - Tea Dye from Spotlight) with Black Staz On and coloured in Ollie and Olivia (Stampendous) using Copics and a Bashful Blue Stampin' Write Marker. I had to experiment with a few different copics and markers as some 'bled' more than others on the material.

With the help of some Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets, some Naturals Ivory Card Stock and the Top Note Die, I embossed the material using the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and sponged around the edges with Soft Suede Ink and a sponge dauber.

Other Bits 'n' Bobs -

Baja Breeze Card Stock and DSP from the Subtles Pack, Corner Rounder Punch, Baja Breeze Ink for sponging, Victoria Crochet Trim, Antique Brad, To and From Tag stamp and Small Tag Punch.

This was meant to be my submission for tomorrow's JAI Challenge (I don't think it will give anything away but rather keep you guessing ;) It just didn't really 'cut it' so I spent most of today making something completely different and needless to say, I'm much happier with the result.

Happy crafting,

You are too funny! I'm off to check out what you made as replacement (unless you're surprising the dt as well).

This is super cute and I love that you've used fabric this way.

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…
