JAI 72 - Just Add ... some Colouring In

It's Friday and that means another challenge for you to enjoy at Just Add Ink.

This week it's all about colouring in with either markers, water colour crayons/pencils, chalks, ink refills, shimmer paint, blender pens, aqua painters etc. I think you get the picture.

I coloured the beautiful roses from the Elements of Style Stamp Set using a very fine paintbrush and a mixture of ink refills and shimmer paint.

A bit of Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint was combined with a few drops from three separate ink refill colours - Perfect Plum, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive.

It is very difficult to see the beautiful sparkle that the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint brings to the ink but you can see a hint of shine on the edges of the rolled roses.

Project Recipe:
Stamp Sets: Elements of Style, Clearly for You, Weathered (retired) Background Stamp
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Perfect Plum, Old Olive, Basic Black
Card Stock: White, Perfect Plum, Basic Black, Sahara Sand - plain and textured
Accessories: Paper Piercing Tool and Mat Pack, White Gel Pen, Scallop Trim Corner Punch, Sponge Dauber, Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint
Non-SU: Circle Nesties, Paint Brush, Rolled Rose Die and Leaves by Marianne Designs

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…
